I stayed more than a week at Alder Lodge in Lerwick in May 2014 while I was on a walking holiday. The hosts were very welcoming and the room was large and very comfortable. Everything was absolutely spotless. The Lodge is close to downtown Lerwick, just a short walk away. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. I would stay... More

We stayed for 2 nights and got exactly what we expected except the breakfast was better than anticipated. Clean and tidy, an easy walk into town and helpful hosts. A good solid B&B. And the breakfast was up there with the best of its type.

Stayed in annex. Top floor room on left. Spacious bedroom with white sheets on bed and en-suite. Only ever saw one other person staying there, so also had run of the kitchen and living room. Only downside was house had a strange smell throughout on arrival. I left the window in my room open, however, and it was gone in... More

Karen and Keith, and their staff were very helpful and welcoming. I had their single room (5) in the main guest house which had a separate bathroom a few steps away - very good value for 3 nights. Excellent breakfasts with black pudding. I noted they have a separate dining room where you can eat takeaways in the evening but... More

Even before we'd arrived, the wonderful owners of Alder Lodge, Karen and Keith, were friendly, accommodating and helpful. They helped us with suggestions of places to go (e.g. west coast when the sea mist rolls into the East) and with an early check-in. Keith and Karen have a great enthusiasm for the Islands and endless patience in answering questions from... More

We stayed in the annex. The room is still nice, but it's about a 5 minute walk to the main house which is annoying in the morning. There's a TV in the annex room, and if you ask in the main house they might let you borrow one of their DVDs. There's also a kitchen in the annex, but you... More

We stayed in the annex rather than the main house, and our twin room was clean, comfortable and spacious. And it had a kettle, which is always a bonus. The annex has a large shared kitchen, which was really useful for preparing sandwiches, and a shared sitting room. Breakfast was good, although it was ever so slightly inconvenient to have... More

We stayed four nights at the Alder Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was reasonably furnished and clean, and the hosts (Keith & Karen) very hospitable. The breakfasts were good - I particularly enjoyed the smoked haddock. The location was convenient - a few minutes walk down to the centre of town and also close to the community centre... More
