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.

Simply faultless
This was my second trip using 'The Decca' as my base and the stand out thing is the great attention to detail, whether its the milk in the fridge or the 'walking rucksack' pre-loaded with maps, flask and sandwich box. Accomodation is fresh and modern with little touches to make it feel homely, there is a definite sense of calm as you walk in the door.The property is a little outside Lerwick but if you're here you will most likely be travelling by car anyway. As this was a business trip for me the wifi availibility was important and being on the hill mobile reception (at the window!) was fine for O2. There are comprehensive folders with information on everything to do in Shetland,make sure you open all the cupboards and drawers when you arrive as there are useful bits and pieces everywhere. It was a struggle to find anything to fault, as I was in the Tirrick the head space for me (I'm tall) in the bedroom is tight but perfectly acceptable and all in all fantastic value and Steve was very helpful, meeting me on arrival and running through everything. Hopefully there will be space for me when I next return...

Thank you Matt. We are so glad that you found Tirrick to your liking. I particularly liked your comment - on departure - regarding Steves beard, his contribution to Up Helly Aa 2013! I am counting the days to its removal! It will be great to have you back again to stay, and hopefully it will feel like 'home' when you have be away through work. Thank You :-)

A comfortable "home from home".
Only one thing was really lacking in "Tirrick" - blackout blinds in the bedroom window ! Re-comment below about check-in: We would have appreciated having been given directions as to how we could find the apartments, coming from the airport in a hire car. F.R.M.& M.R. Macdonald.
