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.

Home from home in the Shetlands
Perfect holiday apartment close to Lerwick town centre. Spotlessly clean and has all you will need for a great holiday in the beautiful, scenic Shetland Isles. Gillian and Steve are very friendly hosts and the apartments they have in the Decca are first class.Have been here twice to stay and will definitely be back again. Great value for money.

First class accommodation.
I stayed in Tirrick for 4 nights at the end of August, beginning of September. Apt is exactly as shown in the photos, beautifully finished and with lovely little touches. I arrived 8am, got access right away and was picked up by Steve at the ferry terminal. Loads of fluffy towels which is lovely. Too many places supply one or two for the week in the guise of being Green. However it's anything but, as you end up washing them repeatedly, possibly on their own. The place was always the right temperature and the bed was really comfy. I found the Wifi great. Previous reviews mentioned problems, but it streamed perfectly for me. Excellent 4G signal as you are quite high up. Appliances like cooker, dishwasher & washing machine were very straightforward to use. No impenetrable hieroglyphics to decipher. I had no car and walked back and forward to the town. It was about 25 mins all in. Downhill in, uphill back. There is a bus that would take you half way up the hill, or as I worked out on the last day, the Scalloway bus could drop you on a back road that would avoid hills altogether. Anyway the weather was fine and I mostly walked it every day. A taxi into town would be about a fiver. I found taxis on Shetland expensive and buses unbelievably good value. Good services too, compared to many other rural areas. It is possible to base yourself at The Decca without a car and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. I tried to book the town apartment for next June when I'm bringing my mum up for her first visit, but it was booked on the days we needed. I would definitely recommend The Decca.

Thank you Gail, we are glad you enjoyed staying with us at The Decca. Certainly the distance for those without a car is very much personal preference. Though now as winter approaches, walking the last bit in winter time is maybe not such a good idea, during our short days. Thats a shame Corbie, in the town centre was not available for you....maybe next time. Thank you again, Gillian & Steve :-)

Excellent
Only stayed 2 nights in Tirrick, but very comfortable & extremely well-equipped. Sitting room was large (for 2 people) but bedroom was very small, however there was ample storage space there. Rucksack with map, lunchbox, etc was a kind thought, as was the bottle of beer on arrival! As shower is above the bath it could do with a grab-handle for the not so young & nimble!

I immediately felt at home!
Traveling to Shetland was a dream come true, and staying at The Decca truly enhanced the experience. A rural setting close to town was ideal. Gillian picked me up at the ferry terminal and made sure I had everything I needed to get settled. Milk for tea, local biscuits and local ale provided a lovely welcome. The flat was immaculate and comfortable. The WiFi was brilliant; it made it easy to stay in touch with family and friends back home.

We're delighted that staying in Tirrick added to the enjoyment of your visit to Shetland - we do endeavour to make our accommodation somewhere that is nice to return to after any trips out for the day, or night! Take Care, and happy spinning and knitting :-) Gillian & Steve

Excellent accommodation in Lerwick
The location was in a quiet area of Lerwick in the beginning of the countryside. The accommodation was all you could wish for: clean, modern, all facilities ie washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, wi-fi etc.. Would definitely reccomend the Decca.

Tirrick was terrific!
Well equiped apartment-Freeview TV with bulit in DVD Free wifi Dishwasher& Washerdryer Very clean & welcoming Local bottle of beer, biscuits and pint of milk were a nice touch We found bed too soft but I undertand this is a very subjective thing and also because it doesn't go dark at this time of year you have to put a peice of hardboard up to the Velux window- this fell down 3 times during our stay- woke me with a start-it's not so relaxing going to bed thinking about a peice of hardboard falling on you! However we'd go again because all the benefits outway this.

Thank you Melissa for your review. We missed you, when we popped up to say goodbye, and were so vexed that the board fell on you in the night - and would have come and fixed it for you right away if we had known. Steve has now altered the fittings so that when you slide the board in, the fittings hold the board more securely in place - it will not fall again. We are pleased you so many birds - 54 in all! Thank you for taking the time to list them in the Guests Book, and I think you were quite lucky with the weather too! We do hope to see you again sometime - remember that you get a 10% discount on accommodation if you come back to stay with us within 3 years. Wishing you both a wonderful summer ahead - with many more bird sightings...... Gillian & Steve :-)

Better than home from home...
Imaculately laid out with nice personal touches to make you feel welcome - including the furry rabbit on the bed and the bottle of Shetland beer. Felt as though they couldn't do enough for you - and the other residents were unheard!
