Spent 2 very enjoyable nights at this hotel. From the moment of our arrival the staff ensured we were well looked after. The room we had (5) on the ground floor ( a few steps to the room ) was spotless and had everything we needed. The breakfasts and evening meals were excellent, the duck and the lamb being exceptional....

As a starting place for our trip to Shetland, this hotel is excellent. Gorgeous views from our corner suite, looking over Jarlshof and out to sea. Friendly, efficient service and food was of high quality. Even though there are many folk associated with the oil industry who use this hotel, it is quiet, no noise at night and tourists and...

Having stayed in the hotel on several occasions I was disappointed to have booked well in advance only to turn up on the day and notice I had been moved to a room that I did not book. There was nothing I could do when the room I wanted was already given away. I did explain I had been excited...

My opinion is that this hotel has more to offer than would appear from the outside approach. Having slept in two rooms over two nights, and seen another one and the new dining room/function room l feel it is worth considering as a wedding venue. The outlook for photos is wonderful plus jarlshof on the door step what more could...

Splendid Hotel right next to the Airport and they will drop you off! What's not to Like? Comfy room, great bed, splendid breakfast, and a fine dinner the night before. Never saw the hotel in daylight but none the less it looked traditional in the headlights. Staff were very welcoming and made the visit special. Even though it was just...
