Great stay at Busta House. Staff very friendly & welcoming. Rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The food is by far the best I've tasted on the island by a long way. Will be back to stay.

If your idea of a hotel has a bar with sports tv, juke box and karaoke on tap then this is not the hotel for you. Busta is a hotel that has excellent rooms of the old style, each individual, each comfortable. There is an excellent bar and restaurant and when you finish your meal there is the Long Room;...

Had dinner at Busta a few weeks ago. Lots to choose from on the menu, hard to decide which dishes to go for. Had a starter, main course and pudding. All perfectly cooked and presentation excellent. Staff and Owners very polite and welcoming.

We stayed in the Trondra Room which had a sea view and very comfy bed. I cannot fault this hotel - staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included and superb. Dinner superb. A table for dinner should be reserved on a Saturday as it was very busy. Tea and coffee provided in the room plus a bottle of water. The...

We recently celebrated our Shetland wedding with a small intimate dinner and a one night stay at the beautiful and historic Busta House Hotel. It was magical, with a warm welcome and thoughtful service from both the owner and the staff, and our dinner was delicious. A few items that were organized in advance, flowers, taxi for guests etc were...

We stayed at Busta House in late July having spent a couple of days in Lerwick. We selected Busta because of its central location as it enabled us to explore the northern parts of the Shetlands. A country hotel with an interesting past and nice views across the loch. Our room was large and comfortable albeit a little tired. Food...

Spent two nights here as part of a walking group. Lovely location, public rooms and grounds but bedroom had very poor view of a courtyard and waste bins. However bedroom was immaculately clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful but the really outstanding feature was the excellent food with very varied menus and the best packed lunches I've...

This hotel was part of a fly/drive tour and when driving 23 miles through thick fog and rain from Lerwick, we were puzzled as to the tour operator's choice of a hotel so far from the main town. We wondered no more on arrival because the friendly and helpful service we received was incredible. The hotel has old world charm...

There is reason why this hotel gets so many excellent revues, it is... excellent. Our room had lots of space with a lovely bed, clean bathroom and a wonderful view looking over the bay. Dining?
