Fabulous location and excellent food. Our room was in the main building so was old fashioned but that was all part of the experience. Pierre is a great chef using local ingredients and cooking them beautifully. Perfect place to stay to explore the main part of the Shetlands.

The people who didnt like this hotel should stick to business chain hotels, this is a wonderful hotel in a glorious location. Dont be put off by first impressions the outside could so with a lick of paint but the rooms we stayed in were modern with very comfortable beds. The food is outstanding, no choice but all courses on... More

I stopped for a meal with a group and maybe it was just me but I came away with a feeling I'd been taken for a gigantic ride. Overcooked food which was served cold and had to be sent back to be warmed up and no choice of menu. You'll have what you're given !! I've had much better food... More

If you like "out of the way" even by Shetland standards the Burrastow House is ideal. Located on a very picturesque headland overlooking Vaila Sound and some small islands this is a large and very quirkily laid out Victorian style house. Getting there is a beautiful drive across the main island from Lerwick where you eventually get to the hamlet... More

If you want a few days of absolute peace and tranquillity, visit Burrastow House. Right on the side of a sea loch, watch the birds, otters and seals from your window a truly magical experience. We stayed two nights and could have managed many more, Pierre fed us very well (and us gluten free too!), you don't get any choice... More

If you are looking for a comfortable stay in an out of the way location, this is the spot. With very comfortable, well appointed bedrooms, outstanding food, and the possibility of seeing an otter outside your door, Pierre and Margareth looked after us beautifully. Be prepared to eat a fixed meal at 7.30 and you won't be disappointed. Thoroughly recommended... More

We absolutely loved Burrastow House and the warm welcome we received! We had booked to stay for two nights in July but ended up staying for 3. Amazingly, we arrived on a high as we had just spotted a pod of orca whales from the high cliffs at Esheness, the first we had ever seen and then on arrival at... More

Essentially you are a guest in Pierres summer home. He is a friendly and very welcoming host. He and his staff provide a friendly atmosphere to relax and enjoy the views and his wonderful cooking. The rooms are well appointed with large bathrooms and flat screen TV Tea and coffee etc. just what you would expect in a 4 star... More

Our first impressions were not great - a handwritten sign on the front door asks you to use the side door, and we then got lost in a corridor. However, we soon began to understand and appreciate the quirkiness of the place. Don't go expecting a country house hotel. It is not at all chintzy. It feels much more like... More

I still cannot comprehend the work that Pierre does to make your stay as easy going and comfortable as possible. There were many Faulty Towers moments during our stay but I say this in a very sincere way. I had the feeling that as soon as Pierre was through a door and out of sight from you he would run...
