I stayed for 4 days on a work visit at the end of July.
The location is central with a short walk to the city center.
I had a lovely sea view room.
The beds was extremely comfortable.
The place in spotless.
Great selection for Breakfast.
Really recommend this Guesthouse.
One small improvement, would be good to have tea/coffee in the room.
Beautiful, solid, historic stone house located close to water edge at a point giving views up to Lerwick and out to open sea. The house has very high quality fittings (bathroom, windows, etc.) that match the style of the house. Very clean.
Exceptional breakfasts - top quality ingredients prepared perfectly. In fact, the quality of the breakfasts at least matched the quality at any of the top rated restaurants/cafes in Lerwick that we visited (Hay's Dock, Fjara). Pippa provided excellent travel guidance on things to see - beyond the usual sights (e.g. where to see otters). We really enjoyed Colin's art that decorates the house. Pippa and Colin are genuine and friendly.
We think that the house was well worth the price.
Pippa and Collins hospitality has been far beyond what we have expected. They gave us a lot of good advices for our trip around Shetland.
The breakfast was exellent and served with a smile. We stayed in a beautiful room with a nice bathroom - and a wonderful view.
Thank's a lot!
We stayed a whole week at South Ness House and left with a tear in one eye and a smile in the other. Our stay was perfect in every sense. The bombastic landscape, the beautiful weather and the friendliness of our hosts made it stunning holiday.
Pippa and Colin gave us advice and assistance in every possible way and were very nice people.
The house was beautiful and tastefully furnished. The porridge was the best I ever had. In case we will ever get back to Shetland we would like to visit again.
South Ness House, Lerwick, Shetland Islands is a beautiful property located at the mouth of the Lerwick Harbour. The views are spectacular, great walking trails are right next to the house. The breakfasts were sumptuous and there was a lot of choice. The room was lovely with excellent bedding and I slept like a rock. The owners are warm, welcoming and genuinely live Shetland. They had lots of tips and advice and contributed enormously to the amazing trip I had to Shetland. I will go back!
Here are two people who just enjoy making sure their guests are well looked after and who go the extra mile to do this.
The house is comfortable with "the best view in Shetland" from the master guest room.
Breakfast is a true joy with all the local specialities traditionally prepared.
We were sorry to leave and look forward to returning
Fabulous. Top location delightful hospitality feels like coming home. Feeling sad to say goodbye. Someday we will be back for a longer stay. Many thanks Pippa & Colin
