Pants on fire?

So I'm currently working in the Shetland Islands and am enjoying some stunning scenery and nature. I have taken hundreds of photos (see flickr). In the first few weeks I stayed at the Shetland Hotel in Lerwick. It's a bit of an eyesore and I had a few problems sleeping as I kept hearing noise from adjacent rooms, from the corridors and from above. I posted a review on tripadvisor and made a few points (forgetting about the terrible wi-fi coverage in there) whilst saying the staff were good and the restaurant was OK. The management have replied to my review saying that the walls are 1 foot thick and there was never any noise when they had a listen themselves (did they actually have someone in the next room, I wonder?) So either I am lying or hallucinating, according to them. I am disgusted and have no means of editing my review or replying to their reply. I can post another review in 3 months' time.

Needless to say, I have moved to another hotel in a place called Hillswick. It is more of a guest house, to be honest, but it much more welcoming and MUCH QUIETER.
