Positive Reviews

Owners provide amazing hospitality

Practically every one leaving a review of this B&B speaks of the owners in reverential terms. As well as being some of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet, impressed guests describe the owners as always ready and primed to help out guests in any way they can. Reviews suggest their local knowledge, combined with their top-notch recommendations of restaurants, sights, and attractions is much appreciated too. According to reviews, the level of hospitality travellers receive here is a large reason many return.

Breakfasts are to die for

It's fair to say many guests run out of superlatives when attempting to describe this B&B's breakfasts in their reviews. Evidently, the owners really give their all with their morning meals, with everything from local smoked salmon and creamy scrambled egg to traditional porridge and sensational coffee, all coming as standard. Even visitors who are accustomed to starting the day with a big cooked breakfast say the offerings laid on here go well above and beyond their expectations.

Location couldn't be better

This property's location in the very heart of Lerwick tends to settle very well with visiting guests. Travellers really like the fact that they can easily reach the town's key points of interest, including the tourist information centre, ferry terminal, and museum on foot. Having Shetland's famed coastal walking trails close by is also deemed a big plus for guests looking to get the most out of their stay.
