We had 3 nights here recently and enjoyed it very much. The weather was a bit colder than we expected so after mornings spent out and about we sat in the lounge area near the rayburn reading for several hours of an afternoon feeling quite at home. All staff and owners are very friendly; food yummy; beds comfortable. We would...

A warm welcome, a comfortable room, good food and excellent service. The building is newly refurbished and decorated in a distinctive style with strong colours and patterns, perhaps not to everyone's taste. In the small lounge there is a peat fired Rayburn. The restaurant is well used by non-residents.

Great welcome, in a calming venue with fantastic home style cooking with ample portions, sensibly priced. Alcohol licensed with fair selection and OK prices. Used by many locals for meals, has two menus, one for 'normal' and one for 'pushing the boat out' either is excellent but the fancier menu you need to give advanced notice to the chef which...

We came to drumquin for a birthday meal and we were not disappointed. We stay in shetland and had heard amazing reviews of the food from many friends and family and it lived up to them. The dining is a pre booking option so you can either phone or email a couple days before with your menu choices. We opted...

Spent one night here during a business visit to Sullom Voe Terminal - the room was very comfortable, hosts friendly and attentive and the food was very good. The guest house serves drinks with the evening meal and has a small but varied selection of wines, beers and spirits. Highly recommended, and I will return at some point I'm sure.
