Wonderful guest house in the middle of Lerwick, ideally situated for getting around. The room was beautiful, spotless and very spacious. Jim and Lynne were wonderful hosts and could not have been more helpful - allowing us to leave our luggage prior to checking in and also after checking out - a great help to us. The breakfasts were delicious and a good variety was on offer. Would definitely stay here again next time we come to Shetland.

My husband and I stayed for three nights at the end of July, as part of a motorcycle touring holiday of the Shetlands. Lynne and Jim were the perfect hosts, being personable, knowledgeable and very helpful. The accommodation was very well appointed and close to all the town centre facilities. The breakfasts were well cooked, tasty and generous in size In summary, we would endorse the positive comments in the other recent reviews, We really enjoyed our stay and would rate The Fort Charlotte Guest House as 5 Star.

Hosts were just like friends - nothing too much trouble - took the time to talk & recommended a few 'must sees & do's' they were happy to look after our food requests too. Helped us out by taking our luggage to ferry terminal for us. Went out of their way to help us. Breakfast was superb. Fresh fruit salad, cereals,many types of teas,amazing choice of cooked breakfast. Can't recommend enough. If you need to stay in Lerwick then this is the place. Free parking not far away. Centre of town location.

A fantastic guest house right in the centre of Lerwick. Rooms are very well appointed, spotlessly clean and the hosts are welcoming, kind and very knowledgeable about the local area. The breakfasts though were the highlight with quality local ingredients, well cooked and generous proportions.

We stayed for a week and were thrilled with our visit. The building is beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and quiet, the breakfasts are delicious, and the hosts are warm and welcoming. The location is right where you want to stay. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Parking is quick and easy. The WiFi is fast, the beds are great, the hot water is hot, and the water pressure is abundant. A hidden bonus of staying with hosts Lynn and Jim is their knowledge of the local area. Don't miss your chance to ask questions during breakfast. You'll get detailed info on local walks, history, attractions, and restaurants. They are a resource adding huge value to a stay with them. Perfect.
