Microwave, fridge, tv, kettle, hairdryer and iron in room. There was a basket with first aid kit sewing kit face wipes shower gel and soaps if you forget your own. The... More

Rented a twin room for the weekend. Did not have an ensuite but shower and toilet only a few steps away. Sandra was helpful from start to finish: answered questions promptly through email and provided directions. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Excellent breakfast and even better conversation. Would highly recommend and look forward to staying again.

We stayed here during our 2 week trip to Shetland and could not have been more comfortable or well looked after. The room was spacious, very clean & well serviced throughout our stay. We were provided with a travel cot in our room and also a high chair at the breakfast table for our 8 month old baby. Sandra, the... More

My mother, daughter and myself stayed with Sandra at the beautiful Woosung B&B from 4th-8th June, 2012. We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable, friendly and comfortable place to stay. Not only was our room spacious with facilities I've never had in a B&B before, fridge, trays, cutlery and crockery, biscuits, sweets and copious amounts of tea and coffee,... More

I should have written this review a long time ago - but have been busy! Sandra was very accommodating. We travelled last August/September with our son who was 7. Sandra arranged an extra bed for him, with bedding at no extra cost. We were delighted to have a small fridge in our large room (with very high ceilings) and a... More

Helpful emails before arrival. Sandra picked me up at the bus stop, which made my arrival easier. After a welcoming cup of tea, I was given a choice of two rooms. Sandra goes out of her way to cater to her guests’ needs and requests. Sandra maintains her equanimity even when disaster strikes (burst pipe taking one room out of... More

Our room was warm and cosy with excellent extras- eg fridge,milk and juice,plates,cutlery. The house is well located and convenient for walking down into the main thoroughfare. We had the use of a shared... More

We stayed three nights at Woosung and were made very much at home. Sandra was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and well supplied with beautiful bed linen tea and coffe making facilities with real milk in the mini fridge. There were also biscuits and chocolates left in the room.

After reviewing the different accommodation available in Lerwick we chose the Woosung based on the rave reviews. The quaint name instantly grabbed our attention. What a pure stroke of luck. Built as a merchant's house in the 19th century, Woosung modestly claims to be a B and B, not a guest house. That said you'll have a welcome saving in... More
