As essentially an airport, the hotel caters for all what I needed during my stay in Sumburgh. The rooms were clean spacious and comfortable, food were more than decent after a long day of walk, on top of that, staff were friendly and the public pub in the hotel really gives you an goos impression of the lives of locals...

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...

If only I had of been here for leisure purposes!!! An excellent hotel, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room I had was more like a suite, lovely decor and a relaxing atmosphere. The food in the restaurant was out of this world and that counts for all meals. Don't pass on this hotel!!!

Not knowing how weather and terrain can impact my daily distance, it's impossible to book accommodation ahead of time. Sometimes this creates challenges - but sometimes it creates fabulous opportunities - and top amongst these is my experience of the...

Had 2 nights in hotel, 1 night in chalet and 1 in hotel itself. Chalet had two good sized rooms, 1 twin 1 double both with en-suite. Good wifi with smallish living space. Room in hotel was of similar good standard. Food was excellent on both nights and work colleagues that stayed all loved their stay.
