Went along Scalloway Hotel on Sunday for lunch. Was greeted with a lovely friendly young waiter who let us choose which table we wanted. Didn't think we were that hungry but the menu was so inviting we ended up having a 3 course lunch. Everything was cooked to perfection and will deffinately be going back soon.

We came across the Scalloway by chance during our stay on Shetland. It has a choice of bar meals or an upmarket restaurant. We chose the latter and it exceeded our expectations. The quality of the produce, and the preparation and presentation of the food was superb. The customer service was attentive and accommodating to any request. We had the... More

We took a spin out from Lerwick for somewhere different to eat following a recommendation from some colleagues and we weren't disappointed. The food whilst a bit out of company policy on price was excellent. I particularly liked the attention to detail, the waiting staff knew everything about the menu and described what was on offer in every detail. This... More

I stayed for 1 night on a business trip and loved my time here. Service is impeccable, breakfast buffet is incredible and the facilities are lovely. I'd highly recommend the restaurant food, but you pay for the luxury!

We booked a table for 4 for dinner last Saturday evening. We were made very welcome when we arrived and the management and staff couldn't do enough to make our evening out extremely enjoyable. We were seated at a fairly large table by the window so were very comfortable. Our meal was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic. The... More

Nothing was too much bother for the excellent staff. The hotel was comfortable and very friendly, the bedroom was a little small (mine was a double room for single occupancy) but this was due to the design of the original building and the en suite bathroom with walk-in shower used every inch available. The view over the harbour was superb.... More

You are assured a very friendly welcome here from all the staff as soon as you enter the hotel. The room I stayed in at £90/night was very small for this sort of money but was maintained to the highest standard, Its only a small thing but I did expect that after a days work you could come home to...

Your comments have been passed on to our housekeeping team. Our rooms are small, but we have tried our best to modernise them to the highest possible standards, with Shetland tweed soft... More

Just spent 3 nights at the Scalloway Hotel. What a good introduction to Shetland hospitality! We arrived late but our restaurant reservation had been held for us and it certainly didn't disappoint. It's a long time since I've had such good food. And our young waiter couldn't do enough to make us welcome. I am not normally a fish person... More

Lovely hotel on the waterfront. We stayed in 311, a refurbished room with sea views. The decor was lovely, with contemporary tweeds, clean white walls and local (very good) art. Everything was simple, warm and tasteful. The bed was really comfortable, and the hot showers were awesome. great place to come back to after a long day exploring the islands.... More

My family and I were here for lunch today and I cannot praise the waitress highly enough. I had my 11 month old with us and my 5 year old niece; she was brilliant, asked when we would like the high chair (just when food arrived), set all cutlery and drinks out of reach automatically, came with a separate plate...
