Arrived early due to ferry arriving early. Still openly welcomed. Food was fabulous, hospitality was fabulous. Would stay here again. The room was spotless and very spacious. Nothing wrong with the room or hotel just wished the travelling time to get there wasn't as long.

A lovely building that really needs a refurbishment toot sweet. The longer the owners wait the costlier it will get. Oh and a fiver to check out an hour later is comical!! Clean bedding and pleasant staff.

We really enjoyed this restaurant, with tasty food, so comfortable, with beautiful view at the town and sea. We visited it several times during our stay in Lerwick and tasted a lot of dishes and they were always very good. It is really the best restaurant in the town. The staff is very friendly.

Although we did not stay here we found the restaurant upstairs in the Grand Hotel as we wanted to try a Shetland Island Pub meal. Excellent friendly and professional service in the restaurant by James and Paul (or was it Peter - apologies). The food is excellent and good size portions and we were made to feel very welcome.

Went in as a last resort looking for somewhere to eat. Imposing old-fashioned "grand" entrance, found our way upstairs to saloon bar which is a basic Scottish pub (vinyl floors, basic furninture, TV on wall). Beer somewhat pricey but food excellent value and well cooked (especially seafood tagliatelle - generous portion with lots of scallops and mussels for £10.50). So...

We were looking for somewhere for a decent evening meal, the Grand looked grand on the outside but on stepping inside we nearly turned around and came straight back out again. The entrance hall is dark and empty, except for a faded menu board which was hard to read in the gloom (missing lightbulbs!), and the decor is really old-fashioned...

My wife and I went in at 5.30pm for what we thought would be a lovely meal. We ordered a full roast dinner and steak pie and chips. We had only been sat at the table five minutes when both meals arrived. My meal, the roast dinner with veg and roast potatoes was atrocious. the veg was cold and very...

Good service and very friendly. Bar food is available and is very good and filling at a reasonable price. The new public bar looks really nice and bright. Lounge bar is a little outdated but still comfortable and warming. The restaurant offers a larger choice of food and very high quality. Worth a visit

Firstly, I booked into the Grand Hotel but their central booking system booked me into their Sister Hotel the Queens. This was sorted when I tried to check into the Grand. Left bag in room and left to do my business for the day. Arrived back and found the room was clean tidy and warm and no issues. Went to...

We went into the grand for a drink as the other bars in Lerwick were either crowded, shut or dubious. We returned the next night for a meal. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Food was plentiful and good. Guinness was excellent. The hotel doesn't advertise the meal side well but would definitely recommend meal and drink.
