This was an easy to get to, Bressay ferry was straightfoward and very regular, and Paul picked us up at the ferry port. Beautiful place to stay, my room was... More

Visited here for my daughter-in-law's birthday treat. 4 of us had the most amazing time enjoying the spa. Each of us had a different treatment as well, Hopi Ear Candles, Hot Rock Massage, Neck/Back/Shoulder Massage, and Full Body Massage. Everything was perfect. A beautifully location, a stunning house, excellent facility's, and two amazing hosts in Paul and Vi Parsons. We... More

After a busy day in Lerwick there is absolutely nothing more relaxing than taking the short ferry ride to Bressay, where Paul will collect you and whisk you to a place of perfect calm. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and the views are fantastic - even in the rain! Dinner is to die for and breakfast is just right. I've... More

Having never visited a Spa before mainly because thinking this was more of a girlie thing to do. I booked a treat for myself and my partner because she deserved it and had also not experienced this activity before. Going in as novices was a little intimidating but the welcome from Vee and Paul soon put us at ease. We... More

I visited Northern Lights Holistic Spa for a hot stone massage and came away feeling completely relaxed and refreshed. Bressay is a beautiful little island and the Spa is ideally situated only a short drive from the ferry terminal. The owners are incredibly welcoming and make you feel immediately at home. This was my first hot stone massage and I... More

Recent visit got two treatments, both excellent owners are the nicest people I know. Building is high class and they offer excellent food as well, although not had that this time. Bit rushed working in between ferries but that's my choice. Well recommended, a few Shetland business could learn customer services from here

A visit to Shetland would not be complete without a going to this wondrful spa. Shetland is a wonderful relaxing place but you do not know what relaxed is until you have spent time with Vee and Paul. Even if you don't have time to go for any of the treatments you can visit the spa and eat some wonderful... More

We were on a one off trip to Orkney & Shetlands and after 4 nights on Orkney, I'd given up hope of decent food! We arrived in Shetland at breakfast time and caught the first ferry over to Bressay. After a delightfully restful day of being looked after and pampered by our hosts (even managed to lie still for a... More
