We visited with friends attending the folk festival. The location is excellent, you can walk into town if you wish. The public areas have been upgraded and are modern and clean. The rooms are being upgraded, our friends could not see their view as their double glazing was shot. Our toilet packed in one evening, it was fixed the next...

I've eaten a few times and also stayed. Staff friendly and the dining room and the meals are really quite good. The rooms are really rather tired. Beds need new mattresses and there is a real problem with noise. Walls paper thin. Soft furnishing again tired. Good parking. Short walk to the town. Wifi free and reasonably usable.

We had an overnight stay here with dinner. The menu hasn't changed since we were here 12 months ago which was disappointing. Service was good although having several wait staff made it less personal. The bedrooms were pretty dingy and dark, possibly a little to do with my not liking the twee style. Given how busy the hotel was it...

This place is just away from the centre of Lerwick, 10-15 minutes' walk away. That, and the loads of free parking, makes it an excellent base for exploring. We visited out of season, good to have a whole hotel almost to ourselves! The hotel itself is a bit old-fashioned but comfortable The only real complaint would be about the Mira...

We stayed five nights as it was our base for seeing the island and all it had to offer. The rooms were comfortable and both breakfast and diner were excellent. You had to book for dinner in the evening as it was always busy . It's not the kind of place you can just drop by and get a table....

Having stayed here numerous times over the last 15 plus years it is good to see some modernising happening. The bedrooms still have an older feel to them with brown furniture and the bathrooms being panelled in Formica but the beds now have duvets which is a welcome change to my last visit. The restaurant and bar are good with...

I found this hotel to be excellent for my needs as part of a business trip, the staff were very polite and friendly, the facilities very good, and the food superb. The restaurant and bar area were of a particular high standard.

We ( a party of 10) despite arriving in the morning, were able to check into our rooms. While we waited, we had a lovely freshly cooked breakfast, served by welcoming staff. The food was excellent for all 4 breakfasts we had, and one dinner. The bar was well stocked, and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful....

Decided to have a 'child free' night here with my wife for a quiet meal. Could not fault the setting, service or food. Ended up having 3 courses and could hardly move afterwards. Great restaurant for families, groups or couples as it is well set out and doesn't feel like one big room.
