We were cycling and had pre-booked a room. On arrival the first impression was that it was a bit grand for the likes of us, but staff were friendly, food was very good and room was nice. Like everywhere in the area it's not cheap, but in comparison to alternatives it's good value. Seems to be aimed mainly at older... More

Really enjoyed dinner in the restaurant. A good range of well-made dishes using top quality local produce. The focus was on letting the local Flavours come through; dishes weren't complex but they were perfectly cooked. Meal was leisurely and staff seemed to get the balance just right in terms of being attentive but also leaving us to enjoy our conversation.

Stayed here fore several nights during our stay at Shetland. The rooms are nice with a home feel to them. They serve great food and have a varied menu. The staff does what they can to make your stay perfect. The bar has good tap beer and a large whisky menu. Over 200 sorts. The wine menu is also quite... More

On the positives it's an interesting building in a stunning location with nice staff. The negatives relate to the state of the inside of the property. All areas need investment to bring the experience inside up to the experience outside. However the prime area to address is the restaurant space. The dark wood and other dark materials make this an... More

The Busta House Hotel is a gem to be treasured. The staff are genuinely friendly and efficient but not obtrusive. We had dinner in the restaurant as a treat to ourselves before leaving Shetland after a fortnight's holiday. A "treat" well worth repeating one day. The food was excellent and we could not fault the food, service or wine.

My family and I enjoyed a meal here on a very busy Saturday in Shetland, the place was buzzing so we did not expect to be seated as we turned up unannounced, however we were told that they had space for an hour and offered us just that, this was perfect and suited us to a T. We all enjoyed... More

Great location by its own small harbour, and a beautiful old garden. The food was first class, excellent choice, food for active people, not dainty portions. Packed lunches were a highlight, a range of sandwiches and a tub of mixed fruit, great for our daily walks. All the staff smiled, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Just came back from a weeks stay in this charming, comfortable hotel. The staff were friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble, our room was roomy, with a large, firm bed, and the food, both in the bar and dining room was very good. So there wasn't anything not to like, and all good value too.

We called in for a drink and found the staff very pleasant and the choice of local bottled beer interesting, if expensive. We sat in the very comfortable lounge, which had an old fashioned country house feel.
