9.8.Exceptional.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    This is the 4th property I have stayed in the Shetland Islands. It was the cleanest of all. Hosts were very nice and friendly. My only complaint is the sea gulls which, due to the very long days, made a lot of racket most of the time. I realize this is NOT the fault of Jim and Lynn, but it did make it difficult to sleep, and anyone staying here should be prepared for that.

    This place was fantastic. Unfortunately we were only able to meet the owner briefly before she had to leave. However, she left the house in the very capable hands of Corinne. She was fantastic. She made the best porridge I ever had in my life. She was also very knowledgeable of the area and made every effort to help us. The facilities were great. However you do have to navigate some stairs to get to get to your room. The house is close to the bay, downtown, and local shops. There is parking close by and we never had a problem finding a spot. When we return to Lerwick we will definitely be booking this house.

    Wonderful stay!

    A charming guesthouse in a wonderful location, a stone’s throw from Lerwick shops & harbour. Also close to the fascinating Shetland Museum and the bus stop for buses to Sumburgh airport. The hosts Jim & Lynne were so friendly & accommodating and provided a very good breakfast. A delightful room with a very comfortable bed and everything really clean. I can’t fault this guesthouse and would stay there again.

    This guest house is quite exceptional in all respects. The owners are generous in their welcome and ready to give any information or assistance you may require including the loan of books. Everything is kept immaculately clean. The breakfast is cooked to order and delicious. We cannot recommend it highly enough and would love to return.

    Fabulous B&B in Lerwick centre

    Hosts were just like friends - nothing too much trouble - took the time to talk & recommended a few 'must sees & do's' they were happy to look after our food requests too. Helped us out by taking our luggage to ferry terminal for us. Went out of their way to help us. Breakfast was superb. Fresh fruit salad, cereals,many types of teas,amazing choice of cooked breakfast. Can't recommend enough. If you need to stay in Lerwick then this is the place. Free parking not far away. Centre of town location.

    Highly recommended

    We spent 4 nights here. The breakfast was well cooked and wholesome. The room itself was very well maintained, spacious and came with lovely ensuite housing a nice hot, powerful shower. The real stars were our hosts who gave excellent advice on what to see and do in the Shetland Isles. Faultless stay.

    Great guest house, great location, lovely owners

    This is a lovely guest house right on the main high street whilst this has few cars and is quiet. The owners aren’t on site but we’re for breakfast every morning and couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. I saw no Hotel or other accommodation on Shetland I would rather have been in.
