Lonely Planet review

Genteel, characterful Busta House has a long, sad history and inevitable rumours of a (friendly) ghost. Built in the late 18th century (though the oldest part dates from 1588), its refurbished rooms – all individually decorated and named after islands in Shetland – are compact but retain a classy but homely charm. Rooms with sea views and/or four-poster bed cost a bit more. There are excellent dinners with local produce for £35.

Our independent authors have visited Busta House Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Brae & Around.

Description provided by property

Overlooking the shore of Busta Voe, on mainland Shetland, Busta House is a lovely old building with en suite bedrooms, large garden and superb local food. Between the village of Brae and the island of Muckle Roe, Busta House is close to the geographical centre of Shetland - a good base for exploring the islands. Try the fresh local food on offer. There is a choice of wine and some 160 malt whiskies. Enjoy free Wi-Fi in all public areas and a few of the bedrooms. All other bedrooms have modem connections and there is a computer at reception for you to use if you need. Built in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, there is no lift at Busta House, so expect steps!
