We stayed three nights here on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Located on the west mainland of Shetland in a seemingly remote coastal position, it is just a short drive to the village of Walls. The views from our bedroom across Vailsa Sound were beautiful and our 4-poster bed was a dream. The owner-chef prepared delicious meals with a...

Burrastow house is perfect guesthouse. We stayed 3 nights and were extremely pleased.The location is beautiful, the host gracious and informative, and the house charming. We got a suite, and had a whole floor to ourselves. The bathroom (shower and bath) was spotless and newly renovated. Breakfast menu was rich and satisfying. Freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs any style, hot...

I was lucky enough to spend a week here as part of a knitting/walking group. Pierre has made a very special retreat here -- the food is absolutely delicious, the accommodation quite comfortable, the setting is gorgeous, and the welcome is warm. I had the Foula space all to myself (in the new addition). The oldest part of the house...

I stayed here as part of a knitting retreat. Our party had the whole house and I shared the Burrastow Loft in the newer addition with 2 other women. The accommodations were fantastic and the older rooms were very beautifully furnished, but the real star here is the food. Breakfasts were delicious and made to order. Fresh juice, fresh baked...

Had a lovely time in this warm comfortable hotel. wonderful evening meal. Definitely the best breakfast I've had ever. Really fresh orange juice, croissants and my favourite choice of local kippers but most people were having full cooked breakfast. Thankyou pierre and anna

Some of the best food we have had in a hotel . To be honest the outside of this hotel looks a little dilapidated but the interior is warm and extremely comfortable whether in the old rooms or the loft room in the extension. Location is tranquil and absolute peaceful with fantastic views. The food is out of this world....

This is an eighteenth-century House situated in a beautiful location overlooking the Island of Vaila which is operated as Guest House. They are also open to non residents for evening meals. Pierre is a superb chef and the meals are decided by him so it was pot luck! Not a problem as all the food was excellent and served in...

This is a wonderful hotel. The location is extraordinarily peaceful, almost surrounded by the sea. This was our second stay - both the modern rooms and those in the old house very comfortable. The older rooms a bit more charm but the whole hotel is full of character. No choice meals but Pierre will adapt the menu if there is...

Arrived on bicycles having come quite some way. Sign from main road said 1.5 miles but it was over 2 hilly miles - this is significant if you've been cycling all day! On arrival, very attentive owners gave us tea and biscuits in the conservatory. Dinner was excellent - no choice but really well cooked, and we got an extra...

Stayed 6 nights at Burrastow House with Mrs F and was very pleased we made the decision. Excellent tranquil location overlooking the water with excellent walking directly from Burrastow and further afield. Stayed in the Vaila room which is vast in size overlooking both the water and garden/fields. Even spotted the occasional otter and seal from the bedroom window! As...
