Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Comfortable and peaceful
My friend and I had a great time staying in Shetland in this cosy apartment. It's doable to walk from Lerwick to the apartment, though a car is more ideal. We had a lovely couple of days and Steve was even so kind as to bring us back to the ferry terminal after we checked out. Kind hosts and a comfortable place!

Lovely holidays at Tammie Norie
That was third visit to the Shetlands and the second at Tammie Norie and we really enjoyed our holidays there. It was quiet, cosy and very well equipped. Thank you very much, Gillian and Steve, for your kind hospitality.

Great stay in the Shetlands in Tammie Norie
We really enjoyed out stay in Tammie Norie. The unit is really well made and comfortable, a standout for attention to detail. Steve, our host, made us feel very welcome and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay (there was a fishing group staying and he kindly ensured we got some fresh brown trout to eat one evening). It rained one day and we didn't go out but were completely comfortable inside. We managed to get to Hermaness on the really good and sunny day we had - that was a great experience. Lerwick is a great central place if you come to the Shetlands. We'll come back if we are in this part of the world again.

SO GOOD WE HAD TO RETURN
We had stayed in Tammie Norie before and loved everything about so we just had to come back. We didn't get to see Steve or Gillian this time but were delightfully welcomed and looked after by the lovely Louise. Once again we were happy with all aspects of the accommodation and can only look forward to the next time we are able to stay here.

Super comfortable apartment, warm hosts and great value for money - what more could you want!
Super happy with our choice to stay here. It was nice staying on the outskirts of Lerwick slightly closer to Scalloway, and the accommodation itself is modern, clean and top quality. Would happily stay here again next time I am traveling to the Shetlands! Definitely worth a look.

Thank you Mark, It was lovely to meet you both - you certainly seemed to be enjoying your short trip to Shetland - we hope it was just a taster and you will come back to our islands for a closer look, and it just might be warmer! Gillian & Steve

Superb Apartment
We stayed in Tammie Norie, a first floor one bedroom-apartment in the converted Decca building. The owners have thought of everything. Modern, spotless, well furnished to a high standard and well equipped with washing machine & dishwasher. Also telly, free wi-fi, and lots of DVDs, books, guide books and maps. Milk in the fridge and plenty of tea / coffee and even a welcome bottle of beer! They also gave us an updated list of "things to do" for the week we were there. Heating & hot water included and all ready for us when we arrived. Site is a bit out of town and exposed, but well insulated. Not the cheapest, but worth every penny.

Great accomodation just out of town, Modern and spacious house
Tammie Norie at Self Catering Shetland is an extremely well-appointed upstairs 3-bedroom apartment just outside Lerwick. I was travelling for business and a local resident recommended this accommodation, and I was pleasantly surprise on arrival to a lovely 3 bed house, well appointed and spacious as well The kitchen area includes a cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, TV and excellent free Wi-Fi. The 3 bedrooms have a mix of double & twin beds; I was a solo traveller so I was spoilt for choice for sleeping arrangements Steve, my host, was extremely helpful with local knowledge and provided a few basic provisions for our arrival. The flat's locations is just on the outskirts of Lerwick, but still close enough to the town for easy access, but a car is probably required to access the town centre Steve had left Tea, Coffee, milk, butter and bread for my arrival along with toiletries as well. There were local biscuits and local brewed beer for my stay which was a nice touch. Overall these self catering apartments were first class, and a credit to the owners who have great accommodation at very good prices and well worth a visit. John

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with - though the houses are Skarf and Grey Gos (Tammie Norie is our ONE bedroom first floor apartment). We would agree that a car is prefeable, especially between mid Sept - March, when the days are shorter and the weather is wilder! Maybe see you again soon - Gillian & Steve

Excellent place to stay
Tammie Norie which is a one bedroom apartment at The Decca was a great place to stay. It was comfy, had all home comforts, a great welcome with all supplies for a hot drink and a bottle of Shetland beer and was very warm. Highly recommended. However if you are not fit and haven't got a car, the 1 1/2 mile walk to Lerwick centre is down a long hill, meaning a long uphill back. A good work-out ...

We are glad you enjoyed Tammie Norie as your base - yes we do agree that the walk back is more daunting than the walk into town - we often recommend the walk into town, be it for the lovely coastal walks, cafes, or in the evening for a meal and 'refreshments' and a taxi back, which is around £6 :-) Hopefully we shall see you both again soon and enjoy the rest of the summer - Gillian & Steve :-)
