Some of our suggested accommodation in Shetland
Busta House Hotel, Brae
Busta House is in a wonderfully peaceful setting with a blend of history and intimacy on the shore of Busta Voe. The hotel’s 22 en-suite bedrooms, individually decorated and each with their own character, are named after islands around the coast of mainland Shetland. The most accessible rooms are 10 steps up from reception, while others are on the 1st & 2nd floors, some with views of the Voe. As Busta House was built during the 16th, 17th & 18th century, there is no lift. There is a choice of menus, and a good wine, malt whisky & spirit selection. Set in beautiful countryside with fantastic views with a good chance of spotting an otter in the Voe, Busta House is an elegant and convenient base from which to tour Shetland.
The Lerwick Hotel, Lerwick
This more modern hotel is in a convenient and central location just 10 minutes walk away from the town centre and harbour, yet set in a quiet area commanding beautiful views over Breiwick Bay and Bressay Island. Plenty of car parking with 35 en-suite bedrooms, many enjoying the open sea views. The popular Brasserie restaurant is enjoyed by locals and residents where the menu uses Shetland produce where possible and is varied and changes regularly.
Kveldsro House Hotel, Lerwick
The Kveldsro House Hotel (pronounced Kel-dro) is situated in a quiet residential cul de sac just a stone’s throw from the main street of Lerwick where you’ll find the tourist office, the harbour and shops. The word Kveldsro is Old Norse for “evening peace”. There are 17 en-suite bedrooms. In the evening you can enjoy a cocktail, malt or Shetland beer in the bar or take your coffee in the drawing room and of course have dinner. The menu offers an eclectic choice from modern Scottish cuisine through to salad and steaks and always prominently features delicious Shetland seafood.
Sumburgh Hotel, Sumburgh
A warm welcome awaits you at the Sumburgh Hotel. Originally the Laird’s home, this country house was built in 1867 with subsequent additions. Scarness and Jarlshof archaeological sites, dating back to 2,500 BC, are on the doorstep, and there are panoramic views over Sumburgh Head and out to Fair Isle. It is a wonderful base for bird watching, especially around the nearby dramatic cliffs. There are also two glorious sandy beaches a short walk away, ideal for a peaceful sunset stroll. Convenient for the small and quiet island airport and for exploring the attraction rich South Mainland. West Voe Restaurant combines fine dining with superb views. There are 33 en-suite bedrooms, many with splendid sea views.
