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 and cosy especially in mid winter storms!
This apartment is ideal and I loved it so much I came back at the end of my visit to Shetland for another night. Rural and just out of Lerwick, easy to get to and the owners were so communicative through out. Courtesy milk and a bottle of local ale for arrival and I was met off the Aberdeen ferry which was fantastic. Especially as it was mid January and didn't get light until past 9am! Plenty of parking, quiet, cosy, warm, clean and easy to be in. I shall recommend to my friends and family and will definitely stay again. Thanks.

Great place to stay in Shetland
This is the third time we have been at Tirrick, The Decca, and once again we had a great time. Fantastic place to stay just a short stroll from Lerwick, the most northerly town in the UK. Spotlessly clean as usual with great facilities so you can enjoy your stay in the beautiful Shetland Isles. We will definitely be back again when we are next up in Shetland.

The perfect flat
Over the past 6 years I've stayed at The Decca multiple times, each time delighting in the design and outfitting of the flat(s). All the details ((big, fluffy towels, feather duvet, FULLY equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher, hikers' backpack complete with OS maps...), combined with the warmth and attentiveness of GIllian, Steve, and their staff make Self-Catering Shetland the only place I want to stay.

Excellent accommodation; very thoughtfully equipped; warm and friendly welcome
Located a short distance out of town in quiet hilltop location. Everything very clean and well maintained. We were provided with plenty of towels and enough tea, coffee, dishwasher & washing machine tablets, etc. to get started. Wi-fi much faster than at home!

Perfect self catering flat!
Gillian and Steve Henry, who built and run Tirrick and other flats in the same building, The Decca, have impeccable standards. This flat and all the others in The Decca are meticulously constructed, appointed, and maintained. They are also almost soundproof. Every comfort one could imagine is provided for: the beds are wonderful, the comforters are luxurious, the kitchen is fully equipped for all sorts of cooking and baking (I made soup and roasted chicken.). Gillian has provided great maps and a backpack all kitted out for hiking. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

A Perfect Place to Stay.
The situation of The Decca is great for both getting around the Island and for getting into Lerwick. Tirrick is very well equipped with everything you could need. It was spottlessly clean. The photos don't really do it justice. This is the second time I have stayed at The Decca, and would not hesitate to stay again.

Very cosy.
It is a quiet place nearby the city. The drive instructions from the airport were very helpful and easy to find the apartment.
