Spent one night here during a business visit to Sullom Voe Terminal - the room was very comfortable, hosts friendly and attentive and the food was very good. The guest house serves drinks with the evening meal and has a small but varied selection of wines, beers and spirits. Highly recommended, and I will return at some point I'm sure.

Drumquin was the perfect base for touring the north of Shetland, and perfect for a good night's rest and a very satisfying breakfast. Robert and Leslie are thoughtful and welcoming hosts, and their staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful women we met on our trip. Highly recommended!

The owners Leslie and Robert have worked hard with their team to make this a very comfortable and welcoming guesthouse. Fantastic breakfasts and good evening meals on offer. Comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. We spent 4 nights here and were very impressed with all aspects of our accomodation. Nothing was too much trouble for the team that support the owners.

We had a wonderful meal at Drumquin - our first visit but certainly not our last! We had to pre-order our choices but that was no hardship. The vegetables were amazing, so fresh and really well prepared, the portions themselves were very generous. Honestly one of the best meals out I have had in a long time. Good wine list...

Drumquin is one of my favourite local eateries. The food is outstanding, portion sizes are fantastic value for money, the staff are so friendly, nothing is a bother to them, they are so good with the children who visit, surroundings are fab. Can't recommend Drumquin enough. Looking forward to my next visit with a friend for an evening meal.

High quality guest house. The room was comfortable with toilet facilities. Tea and coffee in the room. Staff were very friendly and would go out of their way to ensure you felt welcome and catered to your needs. The food was all home made and of a high quality, large portions.
