fabulous views , super clean. All rooms very well equipped , good functional bathroom. Really excellent breakfast also including fresh fruit salad, smoked salmon and haddock. Would recommend one of the 3 first floor rooms rather than the loft that is a little small with no views.

West Hall B&B was fantastic. Julie was friendly and helpful on arrival, telling us the best places to go in the local area, enabling us to maximise our time in the best areas of the island. The property is finished to a very high standard and is also spotless. I stayed in the drawing room. The room was ensuite, very... More

What a treasure! We had three nights of delight there with Julie and Gordon being outstanding hosts. The room had sweeping views across the bay which gave us all the magic of Shetland. The breakfasts were wonderful with Gordon excelling himself. All in all a great place and highly recommended

This is a really terrific place to stay in the Shetland Islands. It's a large home, with only a few rooms (I didn't stay in or see the cottages). The rooms are large, cozy, immaculately clean and well maintained, and very quiet. The friendly proprietor, Julie, is a fabulous cook and specializes in local products. I was particularly enamored of... More

Julie, the owner of the West Hall B&B, is the sort of hostess who loves what she does. The entire place; rooms, food, atmosphere, reflect her enthusiasm and attention to details. Our room, Sands of Sound, was lovely and spacious, and very clean. The wifi worked well. I understood from other guests that they were also pleased with their rooms.... More

We absolutely loved staying here. Julie and Gordon ( our hosts) could not do enough for us to make our stay comfortable. Our room was spacious, and warm with a generous provision of toiletries. The bed had the most beautiful sheets and pillow cases and was the most comfortable we have ever experienced outside our own. The breakfasts were so....... More
