We stayed here for the (wonderful) Shetland Folk Festival, and it proved to be well worth the couple of miles out of Lerwick to stay here. The Scalloway is a small, family-run hotel, with a warm, welcoming and very genuine staff throughout. My room was absolutely gorgeous - with Shetland behind every detail - from the original art to the funky Shetland tweed curtains, sheepskins, the softest wool-topped mattress and hand-crafted bed and matching furniture made on the islands. The bathroom is compact but has a big walk-in shower, thunderous water-pressure and the whole thing is elegantly tiled in a contemporary style. Fresh fruit and flowers in the room and real coffee!! The food is fantastic - I'm hard to please on the breakfast front, but this place is the business - locally-smoked fish, fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspeberries, blackberries) or spiced dried fruit compote, Eggs Benedict - whatever you like - worthy of any five-star establishment. The MacKenzies are constantly improving the place, and all I can say is - get me back here quick!
Conrgratulations, guys - this one is a winner.
