We stayed in one of the cabins for 5 nights. The cabin was cozy and warm and coped with the storms really well. The bathroom could be improved, especially the dripping tap, but it was functionally and okay.
Staff were very friendly and personal and made us very welcome. Food was good and we especially enjoyed the Chinese night.
Slight issues with the room cleaning but that was soon sorted after we mentioned it.
Overall a really good place and ideal location for exploring the northern isles.

We stayed here the one night as we were visiting friends in Unst, we arrived earlier than check in but was not a problem. The food was very good and the staff were very pleaseant too, the only bad point was the shower head did not stay in its holder. We would definately stay there again.

this was the most peaceful place I have ever been, it was fabulous to go to bed at night and hear nothing and just sleep. I will go back there. the restaurant had great meals professionally cooked and served, even though I was in a remote place, it felt like home.

The staff at the hotel left no stone unturned to be helpful, unfailingly kind and attentive. By chance, the manager spotted us struggling with heavily laden bikes against a force 8 gale and rescued us with his van to make sure we caught the ferry south again while it was still running. The cabin we stayed in was so well insulated you were hardly aware a gale was blowing until you opened the door. First class food and a handily adjacent bar as well.

We were unsure what to expect from this holiday, a short trip to the Shetland Isles led us to this hotel. It sits in one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Nothing to spoil the lovely views from the dining room and if the weather is right you can see for miles. The staff were very warm and welcoming and made our stay very pleasant, in fact nothing was too much trouble for them.

Balta Sound is the last Hotel in GB, it is bit quirky having both inside rooms and outside chalets. Being where it is (closer to the Artic Circle than London) if staying in a chalet you may want to take an anorak for the odd dash to breakfast in the main building when the weather is not so clement. It is a great base for touring, staff were friendly and helpful and my room was warm, clean and furnished to a good standard. The resturant has great views and there was a good choice of well prepared dishes. It takes some effort to reach Balta Sound and it was good to find that the only hotel didn't take advantage of guests with limited choices for accomodation.

I stayed here for 3 nights in August 2013. I had arranged this via email from Australia and the this was very easy, as the staff replied promptly to all my questions. The outdoor chalet was warm, spacious and very comfortable. All the staff were very helpful and friendly, and nothing seemed to much trouble, from supplying me with maps and information to bike hire. The food each night was also a very generous serve and very nice. I would certainly recommend this Hotel!! I hope to travel to Baltasound again one day and I would not hesitate to book here again. Many thanks to Sharn and all her staff, for making my holiday so memorable!!
