We have stayed at the Sumburgh hotel on two occasions as a base for birdwatching on the brilliant shetland.Both visits were in autumn( we return again in September 2014 for 2 weeks) our immediate impression was a grand old house which required modernisation to bring it to a standard which reflected the cost of staying there and for the comfort of the guest. Besides that the overall stay was very good.The staff are a great bunch of people , helpful, friendly, good humoured and welcoming. The food we found was good, there liver and onions with red cabbage is something to die for it's no nonsense good food.As birders it is well situated to cover the birding sites .On our 2 visits we were independent visitors and part of a birding group run by the excellent Shetland Wildlife (Hugh harrop's company based on mainland shetland), Overall our stay at the Sumburgh was very good and can't wait to return.
