Keith and Karen made us more than welcome. They, being locals, were full of knowledge and made our visit very enjoyable. WiFi was excellent and a very good breakfast. Close to town which allowed us to leave car and walk to near points of interest.

Stayed in the single room 5 for two nights. Clean, comfortable and nice breakfast. Great location as very close to town centre, but quiet at night. Friendly welcome and it's also good value, so would thoroughly recommend.

I stayed here two nights having just arrived in Shetland. The bus from the airport stops just outside. Karen and Keith welcomed me and I immediately felt at home. The WiFi works. It's a three minute walk to the harbour or main shopping street. The B&B has a special room with tables and knives and forks where you can eat... More

Highly recommend this place. Very comfortable and well decorated and furnished. You receive a very warm welcome here, lots of information about things and their breakfasts are great. I stayed here for three weeks and it felt like my home away from home. If visiting Lerwick again for business or leisure I would definitely head here.

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
