Stopped here on our final night of our trip around the Orkneys and Shetlands. It was along day having cycled from Scalloway to Sumburgh then to Lerwick, the latter trip being into a headwind for most of the way. Warmly greeted from the owner, our bikes were able to be left in the back of the house in the yard... More

Stayed here during wool week. Very close to Isleburgh Community center which is great for classes and activities. Comfortable place to stay. Sandra was very welcoming and helpful. Floor are creaky, but beds are soft. Breakfast was good, porridge was great.

Nice guest house with a few room. Book early because it is easily fully booked during tourist season. The people are very kind and they offer a great breakfast. They are also very knowledgeable of Lerwick so they can offer very good tips

I stayed here two nights at the beginning and end of a week long visit to Shetland. A warm welcome, everything spotlessly clean, lovely breakfast. I could go on but suffice to say I was happy with everything and would certainly stay again. It's within easy walking distance of the the town centre.

Arriving first thing in the morning from the overnight ferry and long before check-in time, we received a friendly welcome and a pot of tea which was much appreciated. Breakfasts were good and the house is well located only a short walk to the centre of Lerwick. Our room was just a little cramped and shabby although the en suite... More

I spent a very pleasant 3 nights here whilst visiting family. Shetland is a completely charming and intriguing place and the warm welcome, excellent breakfast, clean room and invaluable local knowledge from Sandra at the Guest House made my whole trip thoroughly enjoyable. No hestiation in recommending this to any travellers

I loved staying here! Betty, Aileen and Sandra were delightful and so very accommodating. Do not pass this by as you will be so pleased with breakfast and the delightful rooms. The only downside was the lack of a place to hang out in the evening aside from my room.

The Eddlewood is conveniently placed in the middle of Lerwick, within walking distance of bars/restaurants. I stayed there for one night when in Lerwick on business and although the room was a bit dated, the friendly welcome and service more than made up for that. The free wifi was great (especially given the poor phone reception in Lerwick!), breakfast was... More

We spent a week at the Eddlewood last June, and I have been meaning to write a review ever since - the fault is mine, not that of Sandra and Betty, who could not have been more welcoming or friendly. Our flight had been delayed due to fog, meaning that we arrived seven hours later than arranged. I kept Sandra... More
