Comfortable stay with great service. Current operator understands the needs of anyone needing Gluten Free food. Ideally located close to old town and town centre. Bus from airport will stop at door by request. Not that the lease changes hands at end of March.

Booked in for a 6 nights in late August. It was my first visit to Shetland and Alder Lodge proved to be a very wise choice for accommodation to explore further afield and close to hand, with the centre of town being within easy walking distance down the picturesque lanes. Hosts Keith and Karen couldn't have been more welcoming and... More

I stayed at Alder Lodge Guest House for two days before I went over to Fair Isle Island and another night on my return before I caught my flight from Sumburgh Airport. Alder Lodge is an old stone building with lots of character much like many of the Lerwick buildings. The rooms are comfy with all you need, even a... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and our room was of reasonable size and comfortable. I asked for Egg, sausage and black pudding for my breakfast which I have ordered at other B & B's I have used and received a quality breakfast which was sufficient. Unfortunately I was given a small fried egg, very thin quite... More

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.
