Gem of a Bed and Breakfast

This place does it right.
Our stay was delightful. The host and hostess are helpful and friendly as well as being very professional. There wasn't a single thing that we asked of them that they were not able to assist with. The room was very comfortable. It was clean and a congenial space in which to unwind. Everything was done right. Breakfasts were delicious and complete. And the location of the property just can't be beat--right in the heart of Lerwick, which makes it a very useful base. Roving out for evening strolls was easy and pleasant. (We were on-foot and the location might be cumbersome for those traveling in a vehicle, I can't comment on that.) Try as I might, I cannot come up with any suggestions for improvements (maybe darker curtains to help with those long summer nights?). I'm already looking forward to a chance to return to Shetland!
