This is the 2nd time I have stayed here this year and it is still as brilliant. Spotless rooms, and the Breakfast is fantastic, did not need anything else to eat the rest of the day. Owners are so friendly you feel like part of the family.

Lovely room with a nice view onto the main street. Very central, with plenty of parking space nearby. A quiet and peaceful location. Excellent breakfast, that kept me full for most of the day. Would definitely return.

Centrally located in Lerwick. Great room, clean and proper. The managers (Lynne and Jim) very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast options (my wife particularly enjoyed Lynne's oatmeal porridge!). Wi-fi excellent. I might very well return to shetland at some point in the future, and if I do, I will definitely stay here again!

My son and I spent a week on the Shetland Islands. Our room was very large, bright, clean and very very comfortable. Breakfast was super yummy. The owners are really friendly, helpful and make you feel at home. The bandb is in the town centre near some good restaurants and cafes. I recommend it if you go to the Shetland... More

Have just left the wonderful establishment managed by Lynne and Jim. This was a 'return' visit and we couldn't wait to experience the fabulous hospitality given by our hosts again. As ever, beautifully appointed rooms and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Both Lynne and Jim give suggestions for excursions should they be needed which will ensure that visitors will... More
