Maryfield House was originally built in 1862 by the estate factor and named after his wife. It retains much of its original character and charm. Bressay offers some marvellous walks, from the top of the Wart you’ll have spectacular views of Lerwick and many of the outer isles to the North. There are also archeological sites to explore, a heritage centre, a community café and excellent nature watching opportunities. Yet from the Maryfield, it’s just a gentle stroll to the pier, and then a seven-minute ferry trip to Lerwick and onwards to the rest of Shetland.
The hotel has stylishly furnished, modern, en-suite rooms with beautiful sea views. The restaurant and their snug lounge serve both hotel guests and visitors. The restaurant offers a menu based on fresh local produce, including locally caught seafood. They do an excellent Sunday lunch offering and cater for events large and small. The lounge is a great place to relax after a busy day and if you’re a whisky aficionado, you’ll definitely want to book a room - the bar is stocked with over 100 single malts! They even have a beer garden overlooking the Lerwick harbour.
