Just arrived home from a 3 night stay at the Grand Hotel In Lerwick and I had an enjoyable stay: - Room on the 3rd floor which had a nice view overlooking the harbour. The room itself was huge - 4 poster bed (which was very comfortable), sofa, large flat screen tv and large bathroom. A room half that size... More

I have been to the Grand Hotel and all I can say is this place is horrid. More importantly, they run a nightclub at the weekend that is more like a teenage disco. The door staff are absolutely vile, banning people for the slightest things and being really nasty about it - Absolute disgrace, I definitely wouldn't recommend this place... More

I had heard that Lerwick hotels did not have to try very hard as there is such a dearth of accommodation and so many people wanting to stay there, and this is a prime example. This was obviously once a hotel that lived up to its name, however it just reminds me of Blackpool in the 70s. Dated and tired... More

To be honest I ate here because everywhere else was fully booked. It has been Grand but the decor is stuck in a 20th century time warp. As a woman on my ownI wanted a nice meal with a glass of wine and the only other alternatives that seemed to be available and not booked up were chippies which would... More

Start with the positive, very good food and at a decent price, breakfast also really good. Single room, very small, very poor and could hear next door. I stayed in the exact same room with work over 15 years ago, nothing had changed at all!

We travelled as part of a group of 14. My husband and I brought our 2-year-old son. The hotel made us feel very welcome and made it so easy to travel with a child. The food was excellent. They offered a wide range of food at great prices. The portions were large. It took awhile before breakfast was served, so... More

Staying at The Grand after a break for several years. Up on business so the hotel is ideally located for the town and harbour side. The access is easy from the back of the hotel rather than in the main street. Good food and service. Did have a hiccup in the morning with paying the bill but the night porter... More

Managed to get a table, booking might be advisable. Dining room must have been resplendent in its glory, today the interior is still dramatic. The staff are extremely attentive & seem to queue to be ready to assist. Food was very good & extremely reasonable.
