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. Breakfast was nicely cooked with plenty of choice. This is a family run establishment and they all pitch in to make sure you are well looked after. I was... More

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!

Comfortable stay with great service. Current operator understands the needs of anyone needing Gluten Free food. Ideally located close to old town and town centre. Bus from airport will stop at door by request. Not that the lease changes hands at end of March.

Booked in for a 6 nights in late August. It was my first visit to Shetland and Alder Lodge proved to be a very wise choice for accommodation to explore further afield and close to hand, with the centre of town being within easy walking distance down the picturesque lanes. Hosts Keith and Karen couldn't have been more welcoming and... More
