Rooms were fine and the food was half descent...but the bar was a bit strange. Didn’t get the feeling we were wanted there by the locals, could have just been the time of year though! Perfect for the airport, would stay again.

Working offshore, we were delayed and advised we would be staying at this hotel. I stayed here a number of years ago and wasn’t impressed, however this visit was totally different. Well done to the new owner this hotel has been refurbished to a high standard.
I was impressed with the rooms and hotel in general. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We only stayed the one night but would have happily stayed more
Thanks to all staff for an enjoyable stay

Chose this hotel because it was close to the main airport, and we were arriving late in the day, and leaving (a week later) early in the morning. The hotel, and restaurant exceeded our expectations. Excellent location (the airport is a short drive) and the Jarlshof archeological site is right next door. The restaurant is very good, the rooms very pleasant, and the staff couldn't be nicer.

Room tip: We had a sensational room - south facing, large, view of Sumburgh Lighthouse/head.

Stayed for most of a week. Breakfast orders were taken and promptly served to allow us to get on with our exploring for the day. Dinners were exceptional and we sampled many Scottish desserts that were new to us. Fabulous walk up to the lighthouse where we were able to see numerous puffins popping in and out of their burrows. (Check out the coffee truck while there!). Very convenient to the airport, staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Highly recommend.

As an off shore worker we where put up for the night in Sumburgh hotel. From getting in the mini bus to the hotel the driver was a cracking lad giving us all a hand with bags. Also gave us information about the island and bits to go and see if we where up for a bit of sight seeing. The reception we got when we entered was very welcoming and all the information We needed for the next days travel was explained to us very well. The room freshly decorated with new carpets throughout. Friendly staff in the restaurant and bar areas where helpful throughout our stay. The food was fantastic in the restaurant & the full Scottish breakfast was magnificent. Would recommend this place very highly if visiting the island. Thanks for a great nights stay!!
