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... More

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... More

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... More

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 Lounge bar is a little outdated but still comfortable and warming.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... More

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.

I really like this place considering some of the previous reviews. First of all the main entrance is quite cold but it's straight up the stairs to the reception and bar areas. All staff were really helpful and could not have made my stay any better. The hotel décor is in good condition albeit slightly dated. I was pleasantly surprised... More

We didn't stay here; just went for a meal on Valentine's night. Positives: lovely menu; great food; good presentation; excellent service. And superb value for money. Negatives: place was cold. Only two couples there that evening - not the hotel's fault!
