    The location, the views, the food and fabulous hospitality

    Andrea & Paul were exceptional hosts and on top of that, Andrea cooks like an angel. Her Sunday roasts and fish chowder are not to be missed. The hotel looks out on beautiful views over the bay and they are renovating to a very high standard. Thank you both for a truly memorable stay! The

    This is a beautiful and historic hotel in a phenomenal location. Moreover, the management are investing in newly decorated and furnished rooms that are excellent to stay in. The staff are friendly and motivated. The food is not only plentiful but also very high quality. On arriving on a cold autumn day we had a knock on our room door. And unprompted, were supplied with hot tea and homemade cakes. The hotel has magnificent views of the bay and is yards from an otter set. There are spectacular walks very close by. Highly recommended

    The woodwork on the back of the hotel will need the same renovation as the front.

    A lot of character and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The location is a little out of the way but excellent position to travel to Unst and Yell. Though we didn’t plan it, it worked very well for us. I would stay here again!
