It seemed a little bit isolated from the town centre for a visitor from a city, but only a few minutes drive away. We visited in December, the apartment was very warm and extemely well equipped with everything for a perfect holiday including maps, information about Shetland, games, books, toys for all of the family and even Christmas decorations and...

Very high standard accommodation. Have been here 4 time now for work in april and October. It's far enough from town that you get peace but close enough. They offer a loyalty program for repeat business and try to think of everything. Already booked for next April's trip

Thank you Brian - we enjoy having you all to stay, and hope it makes your bi-annual trips easier. As you say, where we are located, is peaceful, and for the less energetic a car is better - for October to March we would always highly recommend a car (5 mins in the car, 25-30 on foot for the town...

I stay here every 6 months when on business in Shetland. I have stayed in all the top apartment and also the Peerie Swabbie. I can honestly say it feels like home. The apartments are excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Decca. Our apartment was comfy and cosy, and was really equipped with everything we could possibly need and more! The views from the apartments of the hills and sheep grazing in the field next door were gorgeous and we were perfectly situated to explore the Shetlands from our Lerwick base. Some really lovely touches:...

We stayed 2 nights at Tammie Norie, The Decca. Excellent! Clean and tidy with everything we could have asked for. We're sorry our stay was not longer. Steve met us in Lerwick and drove us to the accommodation (we would have been exhausted walking up Ladies Drive with our back-packs). Warm, comfortable with TV, etc. A very minor criticism:- We...

This is a very well run set of self catering cottages just outside the town of Lerwick. It is clean and well maintained, with all the comforts of home. We stayed in Skarf which was very spacious for two couples as it sleeps six. The directions from Sumburgh airport were clear so it was easy to find. The visitor information...

If you like a central location, like to self cater and want to tour the Isles there is no better place to start. The proprietors Steve and Gillian go out of their way to make your stay relaxing, informative and interesting. Wether you choose the Decca out of the town centre or the flat in Lerwick the quality is excellent....
