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

Well located though a short walk uphill from Main Street. Airport bus stops really close by. Easily found and a very warm welcome. Comfortable bed, excellent duvets and pillows, small but perfectly adequate en suite. My room was up a tight staircase so no good if elderly/ mobility impaired etc but plenty of ground floor rooms. Superb breakfast with the... More

The story is briefly told: A warm welcome from owners who know and love their island and take delighting sharing it with others. An immaculate room with good quality bedding and plenty of hot water. A first-rate breakfast with pleasant filter coffee and lovely bacon and sausages. I would happily come here again.

I have spent about a month with Keith & Karen and I can only praise the accommodation, the location and above all the hosts. The rooms are spacious, warm and comfortable. The location for Lerwick could not be better. There is plenty of choice for breakfast. I particularly enjoyed their porridge.

On visiting for Up Helly Aa, we were very well looked after by Karen & Keith. The rooms are comfortable and warm, and well equipped (nice touches like a DVD player and a fridge). The hosts were full of good advice - Karen gave us the low down on Up Helly Aa, offered dance lessons for the post-Fire-Festival fun and... More
