“Highly recommendable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

Spent 2 nights there last week on a business trip. Excellent food, nice and friendly people. The hotel looked a bit worn down upon first glance; when entering to the reception. But the room I stayed in was excellent , modern bathroom , nice bed , wifi, etc.

My first visit to this hotel was about one year ago, when I was 'held over' for one night on my way offshore. I was very impressed with the menu back then but was dissapointed when I was told my choice was much restricted due to the number of people in our party who were there on very short notice.
My second visit to this lovely hotel three weeks ago was an altogether different experience, as I was offered the full menu - the seafood dishes on offer are as varied as they are mouthwatering. Unfortunately I cannot recomend the food any higher than excellent which in this case is an understatement, when is 'tripadvisor' going to introduce a sixth option for exceptional?

Lovely food, I am a vegetarian and have never had such amazing food as here. Chef really knows how to cook. Everyone is really welcoming and the place is very simply but stylishly decked out.
My room had lovely tweed curtains with matching chairs and a fantastic shower room. The owners go out their way to do whatever they can for you. The outside looks a bit like a pub and the bar is still very popular with oil workers but the restaurant is really nice and the bar food wonderful.
Very good stay.

Have eaten here a number of times, but this was my first stay in the hotel. The rooms were lovely and the tweed curtains are fantastic. Free wifi, good shower, comfy bed, tasteful decor. Very different from most hotels I've stayed in on trips to Shetland. The food is exceptional and my fellow diners were raving about their food, although we all had different things. The sticky toffee pudding with irn bru ice cream was wonderful.

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.
