I recently spent 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday evenings) at the Scalloway Hotel. My room and en-suite shower room were attractively decorated and well-equipped; the bed was very comfortable. I chose to have both of my evening meals in the hotel's restaurant; the food and service were excellent. I can certainly understand why the local couple who recommended the Scalloway... More

Arriving at 8.30 on a dark Friday morning, we didn't expect our rooms to be ready. We were warmly welcomed, allowed to freshen up and then treated to an amazing full Scottish breakfast by Peter, the very hands on owner. By the end of breakfast, our rooms were ready and so began a weekend of true old school hospitality. The... More

Scalloway Hotel Weeks before our trip I was sitting in my California office, looking online for accommodations in Shetland A picture of the lamb dinner on the Scalloway Hotel web page made me salivate, and I added “lamb dinner at the Scalloway Hotel” to our itinerary. Sadly, we could not stay at the hotel due to mobility issues, but the... More

Stayed here for two nights with my 13 year old son , on our first trip to Shetland. It's a great hotel and the customer service is second to non. The staff are very smiley and nothing is too much trouble. The food is awesome - try the crab, and the breakfasts scrumptious. They deserve their award. We hope to... More

We planned our 5 night break for our first visit to Shetland using Tripadviser and saw the glowing comments for this modernised port side hotel. Could it be true? Absolutely. When we booked we asked for a harbour view and whilst he had none available Peter promised to give us one if he could. We arrived to find a small... More

Stayed overnight on way back from offshore due to weather. Lovely hotel and great food. Room was good standard and beds were comfortable. Good night sleep. Would consider returning in my time off and explore the island a bit more.

....in the bar on a Tuesday night. I had crab claws in a creamy garlic sauce with a side order of really well-fried skinny chips. Food heaven washed down with a glass of entirely suitable Pinot Grigio. Everything about this was wonderful. Attentive but not over fussy service. Highly recommmended. Free WiFi.

After a disappointing booking elsewhere Peter was able to give us a room for 2 nights with no notice. Room was neat clean modern no complaints. The big plus was the pub and restaurant. Food in the bar was superb. We were hooked on the big bowl of cracked crab claws! Consequently we canceled all the carefully made plans to... More
