I stayed 5 nights in the middle of September. Very centrally located off Commercial Street. Comfortable and well appointed room. The Breakfasts are excellent and owners Lynne & Jim are friendly and very knowledgeable when it comes to Shetland. Would definitely stay here again.

The owners are most hospitable people and helpful in advise on places to see and where to eat. When our luggage was lost by the airline, Lynne, the owner, loaned my wife a jacket to keep her warm during our walks. The rooms are comfortable as are the beds and pillows. Very clean guest house. A terrific location in town... More

We found this to be a very well run, welcoming place. The rooms were very clean, warm and comfortable. The breakfast provided was superb, all the food cooked to order and of high quality. The Guest House is in the centre of Lerwick so is handy for the shops and restaurants

A friend and I booked the Fort Charlotte for 5 days, we knew it would be good, we had read the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised just how good it really was. Lovely clean bedrooms with comfortable quality beds, beautifully laundered linens and toiletries etc it just had a real home from home. One thing I really appreciated was... More

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.

Highly recommended! We stayed for four nights and enjoyed every moment of our time there. We had a lovely, comfortable room overlooking the main street in Lerwick.

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.
