This is definitely the place to stay when in Shetland . The food is great and the staff friendly and very helpful. Not far from Lerwick or the small airport at Tingwall where you can take a plane to the Fair Ilse.

The couple running this hotel were very friendly and welcoming. The food was really good, we enjoyed eating in the lively bar rather than the restaurant. Do try the mussels!

We had a fantastic lunch at the hotel. My husband had mussels and I had crab in a sauce with garlic and cream. Very, very fresh and good. The staff was also friendly and serviceminded.
