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 for our needs
Travelling with a large mixed group The Decca provides the perfect accommodation for us with all the different apartments and different sharing options. Clean and modern facilities which we will definitely use again.

Winter visit
We have stayed at Tystie a few times. It is a comfortable fully equipped apartment. Tystie is situated in the Decca apartments just outside the town of Lerwick. It is in a quiet location about 7-8 drive to the town centre.The flat is well insulated and warm. If your are going out to try the bars or restaurants it only cost around £7 for a taxi into the town. They are reliable and prompt. We have used the service many times over the years. Gillian and Steve ( the owners) are always available for info and advice. It is also easy to get to the northern islands. Well worth a visit. The main A970 is just a couple of minutes from the Decca. The is the first time we have visited Shetland in late autumn. Much quieter than the summer months. Had a great time. Cold and bright.

Ideal Base
The location was good for Lerwick. We walked there and bsck one day although would probably use a car or taxi at night. Steve and Gillian took the trouble to find out what we wanted from our holiday and supported us to achieve including sending us texts about orca sightings and Northern Lights viewing. The brewery opposite did detract from the view but it was handy for a quick takeaway beer! The premises contained all we could need. We were always warm even with a heavy frost outside one night. A lovely little place.

Excellent Base
Although slightly too far to walk into the town centre, this proved to be an excellent base for exploring the islands. Everything you need is provided by a friendly, helpful host. Will definitely stay here next time

High spec, comfortable accommodation
Our little home from home was beautifully kitted out and we were extremely comfortable. We were met by Gillian and were shown around and given excellent information about the accommodation and local amenities. My only complaint of which they cannot do anything about is that the near surrounding area was not the most scenic. When you have come to such a beautiful place like Shetland and our view was either a brewery or a very odd area of which I am not sure what it was it was a little disappointing. We also has bit of an issue with black flies!! But this did not spoil our lovely time in Shetland

Thank you for your kind review Kim, we always appreciate when our guests take the time to do this. As you mentioned there is not so much we can do about the surrounding area, The Lerwick Brewery is a relatively new addition to the area, actually quite a lot of our guests are delighted to hear that they are welcome to visit there ;-) The area at the back, we are still waiting to see what the local farmer decides to do!? The little flies, occassionally visit locally and then dissappear again, in fact they seem to have dissappeared again now! And are vexed they were around to annoy you - as they are annoying. We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and thank you again -Gillian :-)

Perfect apartment with every comfort.
This was my second stay at the Decca. I rented Tammie Norrie about 2.5 years ago. Marginally I prefer Tystie, simply because the dining table is under the window and the shower is walk-in rather than over bath. Other than that they are identically equipped. Bed is really comfy, linen and towels lovely. There was nothing I looked for that I didn't find. I didn't have a car but walked into town easily in the morning, or over the hill to Tesco at Clickimin. The return journey is up a steep hill but I found it manageable. A taxi would be about a fiver. I find taxis expensive but buses cheap on Shetland. The Decca is really peaceful, noise doesn't travel, and I felt safe at all times as a woman travelling alone. I would love to come back with husband and dog if any of the apts ever become pet friendly lol.

Thank you for that great review, it is hard sometimes to explain the walk in, and for a guest to do so gives another perspective! A car is certainly an advantage, and I dont think the car hire companies are too expensive, all told...? Sorry about the pets. :-/

Nice well equipped Flat in a quiet area of Lerwick.
Flat had everything we needed and was well maintained and clean. It was easy to book on line and l called the owner to clarify a few points l was unsure about. I would recommend the flats and apartments as we have stayed in them before.

Great stay again
Several times I have booked and stayed in Tystie. Have never had anything bad to say about my stays. Always made to feel welcome with a txt from Gillian to let me know it’s ready. Always well equipped and clean. Looking forward to my next visit.
