Started with a warm welcome from a friendly member of the staff. Shown to a lovely clean room with a great sea view. Bar food was very tasty and not over priced. All the staff were friendly and polite. A good value for money stay, I would recommend it to anybody.

My girlfriend Carrie and myself stayed at apartments in burray village and we found the sands easily. Sits right on the harbour and the sunsets are stunning.

We were made very welcome here. The rooms were clean and of a high standard, bed was extremely comfortable and we had a great view of Burray pier. The food was consistently good, the staff were friendly, and the bar had a vibrant atmosphere. I would definitely recommend.

The food was absolutely superb, we had the scallops. Our room was really lovely, spotless and with a nice, modern ensuite. Lovely...

Nice hotel, lovely people in a nice location. Really slept well could have something to do will the good food. The hotel is by a working pier, so one morning we were able to select a freshly caught lobster straight off the boat.

Fell in love with this hotel straight away. It is next to the sea with a little pier outside. Plenty of parking and an onsite restaurant. We were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful lady and checking in was very easy. The rooms are clean and bright, the bed very comfortable and it was lovely to go to sleep...
