We have stayed here before. It is centrally located and convenient for the ferry terminal. Jim and Lynne give you a great welcome to their well appointed, elegant town house. Tastefully and thoughtfully decorated and furnished, you have a very comfortable night's sleep, waking to a superb breakfast. We will stay here again.

Great B&B. Clean, comfortable, and absolutely great breakfasts! Hosts very helpful with suggestions of places to see, maps, and even moving my car after I stalled out on the steep hill. Note: park below the B&B, not above! Conveniently located on the end of the pedestrian shopping street. Stayed on the upper floor overlooking the street. Stairway is narrow with... More

Booked this B&B after looking it up on Trip Adviser. Was not disappointed . Rooms great and breakfast even better. Jim and Lynne were great hosts. Don't know why I didn't stay here years ago. I have already booked for next trip.

Great breakfasts - a wide choice - but who could resist scrambled eggs with smoked salmon - together with yoghurts, mueslis, fruit juice, prunes, toast etc etc. A great way to start the day. The two rooms we used over four days were exceptional - the best the double room overlooks Commercial Street. Lerwick is a quiet place. Jim and... More

We stayed three nights at this lovely B&B and we were delighted with our accommodation. The room was tastefully furnished and well equipped. The hosts were very friendly and they provided a delicious breakfast. They have a great knowledge about Shetland and they gave us valuable tips on where to go and what to see. We would definitely stay again... More

first visit to Shetland and was delighted with my accommodation. Lovely spacious room with good ensuite. Had my dinner in their fish and chip shop, it was delicious. Jim gave me some great tips on things to see on way back to airport and breakfast was perfect. Lovely people I will definately be back

A great location, a lovely welcome and a spacious and well-appointed room (along with substantial and delicious breakfasts) made for a very enjoyable stay. And the rates are extremely reasonable too. Highly recommended.
