We had lunch in the middle of the week, very quiet bar, a bit confused as I was advised to "turn up early". The food was first class, service was very good. A good selection of wines and whiskies. We had a variety of mains: venison, pasta, turkey, all with seasonal vegetables.

I don’t often write reviews but late lunch at the Scalloway Hotel today was very very good. Two of us had the same - crab claws in a ginger and chilli butter sauce, followed by monkfish scampi with chips and peas. My friend said it was probably the best fish and chip meal he had

The Scalloway Hotel was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Scotland. At the end of September, 2018, my wife and I enjoyed 8 days on Shetland, dividing the geography into 4 days for the north half and 4 days for the south half. The plan gave us good focus and each day

We visited The Shetland Islands in late October. Our days were blustery and cold. The warmth and welcome we experienced at the Hotel was wonderful. Our room was cozy (looking out on the harbor), the local company in the pub was great fun, and the food served with care and

Scalloway Harbour
Hi Katrina. Parking in Lerwick is restricted on UP Helly Aa day itself, as all the streets around where the procession and galley burning take place, are strictly no parking zones. However, if you don't mind a walk, you can easily find somewhere to leave your car. It is not possible to pre-book a parking space in town. If you are going to enjoy the festival to the full, we would suggest you try to secure tickets to visit one of the halls after the procession, in which case you would be better leaving your car in Scalloway and getting a taxi, as the festivities go on all night!!

Hi there. I can't think of any trials which would be held in an area you could walk to, but I will make some enquiries and get back to you. The nearest bus stop is just a few minutes' walk from the hotel.

"Book early."
"Harbour views on top floor are best (2nd floor with British counting: ground floor, first floor, second floor). NB No elevator but porterage"
"Ask if a sea view is available"
"Our room at the top offered good views over the harbour and bay"
"Level 3 would be quietest"
