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.

Perfect
We booked this accommodation for a (far too) short break on Shetland on the back of previous Tripadvisor reviews. It certainly more than lived up to expectations. We stayed in Tammie Norrie, which is the smallest of the units, but has everything required for a comfortable short break for two people, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It was nice to be close enough to Lerwick for shopping and eating out (can highly recommend the Peerie cafe) yet far enough away for it to be very quiet. Many thanks to Steve and Gillian for making us feel so welcome.

Thank you Shaun, we enjoyed having you both to stay - you certainly got out and about. We tried the Geocaching in Orkney and got 2 of the 3 we were looking for! Not had time to do any more yet! Have a good summer.....Gillian & Steve :-)

Superb accommodation in Lerwick!
I received a warm welcome and was introduced to a cozy, warm apartment (Tammie Norie), superbly furnished with great attention to detail. There was a fully supplied kitchen and nice bathroom with shower & tub, and a bedroom with very comfortable beds and a drawer & closet. The living room had a TV/Dvd-player (for those rainy nights), a stereo, and two comfortable lounge chairs. Plenty of maps/information about Shetland was supplied, as well as a "walker's pack" - and a bottle of very tasty local beer! I had some work to do while I was visiting, and was happy to have quiet surroundings and a table to spread out my books and notepads. As I traveled by car the location (nice and calm) suited me perfectly, the main road was just up the hill. The property also has a good-sized car park. For those not traveling by car, Lerwick town centre is a bit of a walk away - not far, but there is a stretch of road with no pavement/street lights, so beware. Lerwick proved to be a very good location with regards to exploring various parts of Shetland, Jarlshof was merely a half hour's drive away, and the westernmost part of the islands was also less than an hour's drive. Tammie Norie was a wonderful 'home away from home' for 4 days - I will most definitely stay there again on my next visit and wholeheartedly recommend it to other travelers!

Loved Tammie Norie
My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Decca self catering on our first trip to the Shetland Islands. Our little flat was beautifully outfitted, and our hosts went out of their way to help us when we came in on a late flight. The flat is centrally located, a short drive to a supermarket or even central Lerwick. We would definitely recommend it, and if we ever get to return to Shetland, we will stay there again.

Great value accommodation
We stayed longer than a week and it was great to have that flexibility. The accommodation had everything we needed. Nice and warm and plenty of hot water. We walked biked and bird watched and the accommodation was in a great location for getting around the islands. Would definitely go back here as the accommodation was very comfortable. Gillian was very helpful and left some lovely local beer for us to try.thanks.

Thank you Rosie for your kind review. I actually think I may have spotted you both 'free wheeling' down the hill on your last day! What a glorious day it was too! Hope that wasn't our 'Summer'! It is still pretty cool up here in the north! And do remember we DO have cycle storage facilities - I was so vexed I had not worked that one out! Have a great summer, Gillian & Steve

Excellent accomodation with superb facilities.
It was an excellent stay with self catering shetland. Never expected so much for the money we paid. Warm welcome, clean atmosphere, really nice communication and very nearer to the city centre. It was a very good trip and you will really love the stay if you are planning to go shetland. Thank you very much Steve for coming down and having a chat before we left. Really appreciated and felt like as if we were at our home town.

Just perfect
From the start of our stay to the end, the service was just perfect. The Tammie Norrie appartment was lovely, fitted out to a very high specification and extremely clean. There was everything in the appartment you could wish for. The location was just perfect to , just on the outskirts of Lewrick making it extremely easy to access the whole of the Shetlands. Coming back to Tammie Norie after a long day walking and sight was just great, it made the holiday complete.

Thank you Sue for your kind review. We are really pleased that your stay in Tammie Norie was enjoyable. We drove past Ronas Hill the other day - it was still wearing a fluffly cloud hat! Maybe it will have cleared by the time you come again! Gillian & Steve :-)

shetland in winter
shetland in winter is just as fascinating in a different way, the short days of low level sun giving dramatic effects, the night skys free of light pollution, the weather by turns wild and calm. i have stayed at the decca twice in winter , each time in tammie norie and consider it to be an ideal base, the owners have convereted the decca building into comfortable well equiped friendly accommodation,warm and secure when the winter storms rage outside.a particular attraction for me is the proximity of the local airport at tingwall from where two small planes service the islands of foula, fair isle and skerries, often in winter no need to book, just turn up and see what is on offer. you can enjoy an amazing low level flight with views that really are stunning.if you feel jaded by big airports and commercial airlines, try this.have already booked my next visit at the decca.

Thank you Raymond - what a lovely review for us, and particularly for Shetland - particularly in winter time - very eloquantly said. Hopefully the Northern Lights will be around when you come back in a couple of months time too ;-)
