A really happy and friendly experience on my visit to the Shetland Islands. Stuart and Simone, the owners, could not have been more helpful and hospitable. The accomodation and food was excellent and the whole atmosphere was condusive to rest and relaxation. It is conveniently situated within three minutes of the centre of Lerwick and is an ideal base from... More

Lovely warm welcome from Stuart and Simone the minute we walked in and their hospitality continued to be second to none. Nothing fancy about this B&B but it is nice and clean. No problems with any facilities, the shower was fine. Breakfast was brilliant, cooked to order and plenty of choice. It's handy for harbour and town centre. Would definitely... More

A lovely friendly guest house where they can't do enough for you. Only stayed one night but would look no further if I was returning to Lerwick. My single room was a good size with large ensuite and a shower and bath. The breakfast was good with speedy service. Thank you Simone and Stuart.

Just to enter the hall and to get a warm welcome from the nice family got that positive feeling. It's clean and fresh, all the way from the entrance hall to the sheets. We had a large, beautiful room with a bit of a view over south Lerwick. Stayed two nights and after a day full of sightseeing it felt... More

Nice, basic accommodation with friendly hosts. Breakfast is prepared to order...porridge, eggs, etc. The location is great for either walking to town or around the coastal areas on a good, paved walk. Very pleasant stay for several days.

We stayed for 4 nights over a weekend. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and seem keen to ensure that guests have an enjoyable stay. Our double room was a good size but, being in the attic, the climb up the narrow spiral staircase was sometimes a bit tricky - especially with bags and cases. Coffee and tea making... More

Would you expect a bath tub in a B&B? I would normally not, but if you travel Shetland and do a lot of walking (and if you travel Shetland, you should do lots of walking!!), then stay at Alderlodge and book the single room, because this comes with a small palace of a bathroom. There is nothing like a good... More

This B&B is average but could have been a lot better with a little more care and attention.It has been recently renovated to a good standard but it looks like the money for this may have run out. The property has space for approx. 5 cars to park at the side but as the owners park two of their cars... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and the room was lovely with nice clean linens and comfy bed. It also has a fridge, kettle, tea/coffee/biscuits and a good hairdryer.

We had a very good stay at Alder Lodge. The new management (since April) is a nice young couple with a baby. This works very well, because they've got their helpers. The location is ideal for short walks into town. With a car it's a good starting point to explore Mainland Shetland. We enjoyed our stay, thank you!
