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

We stayed at Alder Lodge for one night, my mum, Grandma and I and it was perfect for us. We had a family room and it was comfortable and spacious. Karen and Keith were so helpful and accommodating. Mum and Grandma had fish and eggs for breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend staying here. We had a... 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.

The room was large, comfortable and clean and the breakfast cooked to order was delicious (starting to get hungry thinking about it now). Karen and Keith where incredibly helpful in providing local island knowledge(Karen recommended some local coastal walking routes as we are keen... More

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
