      Good breakfast. We weren't actually there very much as we were there for a wedding so away at that mostly

      Was a little disappointed about the level of communication with staff as there was no one there from Shetland and sometimes found it difficult to make myself clear to staff as they did not understand what I was saying, and I could not always understand them. We found no native british speakers!!!!

      Said to be disabled accessible - it is not - all doors are fire doors as would be expected - impossible for the lone traveller to get through unaided - fortunately other guests were ready to help. Floors 3-5 are not served by the lift and originally I was allocated a room on the 5th floor - this was changed to the 2nd. Will be visiting Shetland again but not staying at this hotel.

    • Single

      The room was spacious

      Dinner was awful - it was described as seafood lasanga. I had lasagna, alo of white tasteless sauce and a tiny amount of mussels, maybe three small ones in total

      Hotel clean, reception and restaurant staff very friendly.

      Hotel in need of re-decorating, looks tired, although bathroom recently refited. It was winter so room window remained shut but in the summer room could be very noisy above main road and opposite ferry terminal.

      The resturant was very good both regarding service and food.

      The room service could be described as no better than fair

    • Single

      Good, clean comfy hotel. Good food served in the restaurant and very good value for money

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      The room and bathroom were a good size and well maintained and cleaned. Staff do respond to complaints about the food - but I have a feeling they get plenty of practice.

      This hotel is fine for business but if you're looking for a relaxing break only book if you're desperate. The room was noisy, overlooking the main road and ferry terminal. But better the noise than the rooms at the back of the hotel which overlook the car park. Don't eat dinner in the restaurant no matter how desperate.

    • Single

      The receptionist was very helpful informative and friendly. The bathroom was very modern clean and up to date.

      The outside of the hotel looks dark glum, as does some of the bedroom decor.

    • Older travelers

      Very pleasant hotel but now in need of refurbishment

      The room was clean and well maintained, the breakfsat was excellant

      The room was not availabe until late afternoon the wallpaper in the corridors is peeling off the room was cold and the heater did not work the lighting in the bedroom was poor with only tablelamps no main light

    • Single

      Rooms are all clean and a reasonable size. Would recommend but only because all hotels are expensive on Shetland.

      Switched me to a twin room from a double without asking. Wifi has good signal but is slow. No tea spoons with cups at breakfast! Had to stir with end of large spoon. This eas same on all tables.

    • Single

      Convienient location. There was an old fashioned feel to the rooms but I like that. Bathroom had been refurbished. Generally good quality feel to the rooms.

      Limited services but they were undergoing refurbishment

      It was quiet, courteously served, hassle free and just right for a tired couple after a busy day!
