I Stayed at Alder Lodge Guest House in July 2015 and I returned to Shetland again this year in July 2016. I used Alder Lodge Guest House as my Lerwick base as I traveled and explored different Shetland islands. It is in an ideally situated guest house in Lerwick, near the Airport bus stop as well as a short walk... More

Stuart and Simone were incredibly welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts were efficient and tasty - they even made arrangements for vegetarians. My room and ensuite was cleaned carefully. Although the Guest House is on the main road through Lerwick, it was a quiet place to stay and was a perfect location from which explore the city - and the rest of... More

Nice to be back in Shetland 40 years after my last visit. This time no relatives with whom to stay. So we experienced the next best place - a local Guest House. And we were not disappointed. Our hosts have worked hard to make this a fine place to stay. They ate energetic, charming and friendly. We appreciated their efforts... More

I would like to thank Stuart and Simone for everything during my stay in Lerwick. Everything from the delicious breakfast to the exceptionally clean rooms was superb. Additionally the overall feel of the house was very friendly- I very much hope to be able to stay again next time I am in Lerwick.

This is a very comfortable B&B, close to the centre of Lerwick and an excellent place to stay --- you should ignore older negative reviews, the B & B has changed hands and is now exceedingly well-run by a young couple. I was in a room without an en-suite facing the busy road,and I still found it perfectly relaxed, perfectly... More

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
