OK hotel. Better than it used to be. Good service. Rooms tidy but a bit small. This place has potential. Ugly on the outside. Better inside. Food delicious. Great views of bay from restaurant. Good wine list. Great menu.

Went here for an enjoyable lunch with friends. Chose to go to the Lerwick hotel because usually the food cannot be faltered. Unfortunately on this occasion the food was not to our taste. We did not feel that what arrived on our plates was quite as described I'm the menu. Two of us had the scampi and fries... The scampi... More

I stayed at the Lerwick Hotel in September and was very glad that I had chosen it. My room was clean and comfortable and had an adjoining seating area. The room looked out over the water. The food was good, and the staff helpful. The only drawback for me was there were several steps down to my room, but my... More

Go behind the front door of the reception and it's like stepping back into the 80s, room 301 was old and poor. Cigarette burn on the bed cover, damp smell as you walk down the corridor, poor lighting, electric heating, rusty towel rail, old fashioned bathroom suite, poor fittings, shower poor.......don't book this place. Paid £135 for one night. Never... More

I have stayed several times here and I have never had a problem. .. Rooms clean and tidy. Food is ALWAYS excellent. Reception staff also excellent and very friendly. It is just unfortunate that from the outside it looks clinical. 20 minute walk to town centre.

Went for a family get together following my Granddaughter's Christening. This was not our first time, we have visited a number of times prior. It may have been the weather but on this occasion it seemed as though many of the staff members were having a bad day, simple requests for additional sauces, change in the presentation of a sandwich...

Today we came to celebrate my birthday with a family lunch, i have been here many times for food and 90% of the time have found it to be great, especially evening meals. Today we were met by a manager who stood and dressed down his staff infront of us, telling them off and creating a horrible atmosphere. Not appropriate... More

Stayed one night. Very warm welcome from staff who were very helpful. Room was adequate. Bathroom recently renovated. Could have done with a few more lights. Breakfast good. Stunning views from restaurant.

We stayed at the Lerwick Hotel during Shetland Wool Week and the limited choices available meant spending 135GBP per night to stay at the Lerwick Hotel. While the hotel was ok, it in no way justified this high a price. The public rooms are nicely done and there was a good breakfast. However the bedrooms are quite a hike down... More
