We were in Shetland for a family reunion. The location is fantastic and is about a 10 minute walk from the harbor & commercial street. The owner is friendly and very hospitable. Rooms are decent sized and clean albeit a bit dated. It felt like staying in someone's home which added to the charm. We were a group and had... More

For prices and location, perfect. Just out the back of the main town. I Good Thai grub as well. Comfortable rooms. Gives a small hotel aura and ideal for family or couples. Limit the Singha beer though! Hangover city! 😂

The location is just a few blocks outside the center and is easy to get to. The staff is very friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend this to others. Just up the street is a beautiful park with panoramic views of the harbor.

Small pokey cheaply decorated rooms. Noisey on the lower floor due to creaky floorboards above. Would not recommend. No chef so owner took us to his restaurant which was a cheap tacky Thai place with a poor buffet selection.

Like many of the other reviews we were allocated here due to bad weather not allowing us to mobilise offshore, alas it wasn't an enjoyable experience. We were welcomed by a woman called Nikki (the front of house manager) who was very friendly and handed out out keys and directions to a Thai restaurant we would be receiving a free... More

So, the reviews on here all say the same thing...the accommodation is dated and that's 100% correct. Never met the manager Trevor that others mention but giving the comments the place seems to reflect his personality in the decor and quality of fittings! That said, we were there for 2 nights and slept fine (but it was summer with no... More

It is difficult to find good accommodation in Lerwick. We were billeted here by our client so had no choice. First impressions aren't great It is a little shabby and rundown. Rooms are pretty basic but clean and it doesn't pretend to be something it isn't. But fresh towels everyday. The lady who is on reception and serving breakfast is... More
