Stayed and had food at this hotel for three nights. Rooms warm, clean and tidy with all modern facilities, decent free wifi. The food quality and choice was fantastic, overall service from staff was very good. Served us proud on our recent visit! A lot better than many of the other choices of accommodation and restaurants on Shetland.

Food and drinks were simply fantastic. We tried a number of appetizers and had a variety of the mains and all was great. Expected OK food, but got much better.

Caroline M, Owner at Scalloway Hotel Restaurant, responded to this review

Just because you didn't like the salad (rabbit food) or salsa verde (mint- flavoured substance) which were served with your steak doesn't mean that the chef was having an off day.

I went to the Scalloway Hotel Restaurant on Saturday evening with my fiancé and my parents for a treat as my parents were visiting from the south. We were not to be disappointed and were still delighting over our delicious dishes on the way home! The calm atmosphere with darkened soft lighting, candles in tall glass lanterns in the windows...

Although I ate in the bar at lunchtime the food was first class, but I thought the fresh orange and lemonade was a wee bit on the high side. Decoration is nothing special, but the owner was friendly and chatty.
