“Scalloway hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

The hotel is in the village of Scalloway about 10 min from Lerwick. The place is clean and has good internet connections which are free, The showers are hot and strong also backed up with big fluffy towels. The food is first class with many locals travelling to eat here. This is the first hotel on my list when travelling for work in the Shetlands,All that aside its the staff and locals that make the place. If weather permits just sit outside with a beer and watch the seals in the bay, I love this place and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: They are all good

Recently stayed here 1 night while heading to Lerwick going offshore and must admit it was a really nice surprise...... The food was just fantastic really tasty and large portions we ended up eating lunch, dinner and breakfast at the hotel and they were all off a very high standard. I can honestly say the beef and ale pie is the best ive ever had !!!! The breakfast was also well set out with fruit, cereals, ham, cheese as well as a hot breakfast menu which was cooked fresh to order. Superb all round.Keep up the good work !!!! The rooms are OK as well nice simple and clean crisp white bed linen, The corridors were a littler noisy early in the morning but hey what do you expect it is a hotel.

Very deceptive hotel. wondered where i had pulled up to but was pleasantly surprised by the experience had. The food is top rate and would travel for the quality of the meal alone. Service was very professional and speedy. Would definitely stay again.

I have visited this hotel on numerous occasions and have never had a bad experience. On my last visit I stayed for three nights and ate in the bar each evening. The fish dishes are some of the best I have tasted anywhere, such as Tusk Scampie, Monkfish and Stanebiter, Shellfish Stew and even good old Fish and Chips. Magnificent haddock freshly caught, and the chips are made from real potatoes and not your usual frozen efforts. I've had lovely steaks and various dishes with Shetland Lamb, all of them really tasty. Even some unusual soups, Cauliflower and Gorgonzola for example which I would not normally try, but it was lovely.
The welcome you receive from Peter and Caroline and their staff is tremendous, they look after you really well. The next time I'm in Shetland I will certainly be staying at The Scalloway Hotel. This hotel really typifies the Shetland people, you will always receive a warm welcome and you will certainly never go hungry.

we arrived in scalloway at nine o clock in the morning we went to the hotel expecting to be able to just drop off our luggage but our room was ready so we were able to book in the room was very clean and modern. we found the staff welcoming and friendly .the seafood was exellent as was the breakfast menu we would recommend the hotel as somewhere to stay for a quiet weekend or longstay to exsplore the rolling hills of scalloway and the rugged ,but beautiful land of shetland will defienatly be back,,
