Having a couple of weeks working at SVT and a rental car I thought I would do a gourmet tour of the island to try different meals. By far the best was the haddock and chips in the Scalloway Hotel. Absolutely beautiful food and friendly service. Back in August!

Really comfortable hotel with great breakfasts and an excellent restaurant! Staff very accommodating when it came to a lactose intolerance. Perfect combination to stay somewhere that had a good restaurant and also good bar food. Hotel definitely recommended!

Many thanks to the owners, waiting staff and chef for a fabulous meal on Thursday 7th July. It was out of this world! Easily the best meal I've had this year. And good luck with the impending restaurant of the year contest. The atmosphere is friendly and I look forward to visiting again. I read the one star reviews- brilliant... More

As usual we booked into room 311 - the most comfortable bed!! Harbour view, comfy room in which to relax. The restaurant was equally as good as we remembered - delicious freshly caught and cooked lobster was our choice - could not be resisted! Delicious breakfast sourced with local produce, impeccable service. We can't wait to return and hope we... More

The friendly bar was busy with locals and visitors enjoying good-looking pub grub. Worth upgrading to the restaurant, though: beautiful piece of turbot, perfectly cooked. Starters and puddings also good, including an excellent British cheese selection in peak condition. Small but well-chosen wine list: the Capel Vale Shiraz was a stunner, and not at all overpriced. Twin room was immaculate,... More

I do not often praise every thing a hotel offers one but this hotel has everything right. A fantastic restaurant with an eclectic menu. The bedrooms are not large as one would expect in a late 19th century building but offers one everything one needs for comfort etc. The bar also has a menu which covers the more general appeal...

We also had the hotel's hot water cylinder humming away through the wall as we tried to go to sleep. We complained and were kindly not charged for one night, when we were not there but still in Edinburgh, due to flight cancellation to Shetland. We had requested a quiet room when booking in early March to stay in late... More

We spent three nights at the Scalloway and found it t be an excellent little hotel with friendly helpful staff with a restaurant providing food of a good standard. It is positioned well on Shetland to enable you to visit places of interest.
