“Lovely location, food and accomodation and great hosts.”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Pippa and Colin were fantastic hosts, always on hand to offer advice, provide those extra touches, like flasks of coffee for our days out, as well as providing us with a beautiful home to stay in with great views, delicious breakfasts and a steady supply of fruit cake for afternoon tea. Lerwick town centre is only 5 to 10 minutes walk away so finding somewhere for supper in walking distance was easy - although you need to book some in advance for some places. Lerwick is also a great place to travel out from with easy day trips to all the main sites. The only down point is that we couldn't stay longer as there is still much to do and see.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Dream place”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Dear Pippa, dear Colin,
I think I wrote already everything in guest log book - You created perfect place for real travelers.
Place is unique and beautiful, room was comfortable with perfect view. The atmosphere was something special, a bit melancholic - perfect for the artists.
For travellers: it is "a must". Internet works well, no problem with parking, perfect, quite location - so there are only You and sea waves.
Unforgettable experience.
To Pippa and Colin: please take care about my whisky- I will be back soon or a later.
All the best to You both

Thank you so much for your positive review.
It was lovely welcoming like minded souls to Shetland and to South Ness House in particular.
We always try our best to make or guests comfortable and enjoy their experiences when they are here. We are so glad the Orcas turned up at the right moment; (trying to organise that was difficult, but at least it was worth the effort !!!!)

Hi Jennifer, thankyou for your lovely review (we hope you meant attentive rather than tentative!!)
We are glad you pointed out the weak wifi signal in your bedroom, that situation has been addressed and resolved.
We look forward to seeing you the next time you visit Shetland.
