Stayed here over Up Helly Aa. Lovely room with a very comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast to set you up for the day. Karen and Keith looked after us wonderfully - lots of good advice on where and when to get the best views - plus the dancing lessons! They went out of their way to make sure we had a... More

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

Keith and Karen are a delight. Full of local knowledge. Always warm in the house, nothing is too much trouble. I wholeheartedly recommend this as a first class no none sense b&b. The rooms are roomy, nice and well maintained. Just a short walk from the centre of Lerwick.

Stayed in Alder Lodge maybe ten times now. Room always good, hospitality excellent, Wifi, great breakfast and I can play with the guitars hanging on the wall!! Find the beds very comfy. Always slept well. If there is somewhere better in Lerwick then I don't know about it. Recommended

Karen & Keith run a great B&B. Central location - 5 minute walk to Commercial Street. Spacious room, great breakfast and friendly hosts. Very helpful with local information and Karen with her tourism background certainly has the contacts.

We were made very welcome by Karen and Keith. This was our first trip to the Orkney Isles and it will not be our last. This guest house offers great value accommodation with a lovely breakfast and is very close to the centre of Lerwick. They were very helpful with suggestions for our stay and if we had more time...

This lovely guest house fully deserves its excellent Trip Advisor ratings. Alder Lodge is very close to the centre of Lerwick and an ideal base for exploring the Isles of Shetland. Keith and Karen work very hard to make their guests comfortable and to make their stay memorable. The breakfast is excellent (especially the smoked haddock and egg!), the service... More

Stayed at The Alder Lodge for a week in Lerwick to visit the Shetlands. It had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The large room was very comfortable with all the amenities including a fridge which was very useful. Breakfasts were excellent and the choice available was very good. Karen and Keith were the perfect hosts and... More

Karen and Keith Anderson really go the extra mile. They washed my clothes, gave me lifts, offered advice... Karen sprung into action when I wanted to find local music. The house and staff are genuine, warm, mattresses are new and comfy. TV has a billion channels. I had a really fantastic stay. Thank you.
