“First class accommodation.”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed in Tirrick for 4 nights at the end of August, beginning of September. Apt is exactly as shown in the photos, beautifully finished and with lovely little touches. I arrived 8am, got access right away and was picked up by Steve at the ferry terminal. Loads of fluffy towels which is lovely. Too many places supply one or two for the week in the guise of being Green. However it's anything but, as you end up washing them repeatedly, possibly on their own. The place was always the right temperature and the bed was really comfy. I found the Wifi great. Previous reviews mentioned problems, but it streamed perfectly for me. Excellent 4G signal as you are quite high up. Appliances like cooker, dishwasher & washing machine were very straightforward to use. No impenetrable hieroglyphics to decipher. I had no car and walked back and forward to the town. It was about 25 mins all in. Downhill in, uphill back. There is a bus that would take you half way up the hill, or as I worked out on the last day, the Scalloway bus could drop you on a back road that would avoid hills altogether. Anyway the weather was fine and I mostly walked it every day. A taxi into town would be about a fiver. I found taxis on Shetland expensive and buses unbelievably good value. Good services too, compared to many other rural areas. It is possible to base yourself at The Decca without a car and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. I tried to book the town apartment for next June when I'm bringing my mum up for her first visit, but it was booked on the days we needed. I would definitely recommend The Decca.

Liked best: Having everything I needed on hand.
Liked least: I would love to be able to come with husband & dog, but properties aren't pet friendly. I understand why of course but it would be nice if one apt was dog friendly.

Thank you Gail, we are glad you enjoyed staying with us at The Decca. Certainly the distance for those without a car is very much personal preference. Though now as winter approaches, walking the last bit in winter time is maybe not such a good idea, during our short days. Thats a shame Corbie, in the town centre was not available for you....maybe next time. Thank you again, Gillian & Steve :-)

“Excellent”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Only stayed 2 nights in Tirrick, but very comfortable & extremely well-equipped.
Sitting room was large (for 2 people) but bedroom was very small, however there was ample storage space there.
Rucksack with map, lunchbox, etc was a kind thought, as was the bottle of beer on arrival!
As shower is above the bath it could do with a grab-handle for the not so young & nimble!
