“Probably the best self catering you will find in Shetland”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our party stayed in both Peerie Swaabie and Skooty Allan which are next door to each other. Peerie Swaabie is the smaller of the two [the clue is in peerie] so we ate breakfast and drank the odd tipple in Skooty Allan together. Both apartments were spotlessly clean and warm, and Gillian and co. seem to have thought of everything from tea towels to torches, rucksack with maps and sandwich boxes, tea, coffee, sugar and milk, beer and biscuits. You would need to spend a bit of time to think of something lacking. We walked into Lerwick most evenings which is mostly downhill and takes about 30 mins. to the far end of the town, and returned by taxi [around £6.50]. Of course you don't need to go out to eat as there is everything there to cook a christmas dinner. You would only need to supply the food. If you do fancy a night in there are TV, video player and videos, books, games, mp3 player and radio. Our party all agree that we would return and will thoroughly recommend The Decca to any one staying in Shetland. I have stayed in many hotels in different parts of the world and in the main they are not any better. Gillian and co. deserve all the praise they get.
