Great place to stay. Everything was perfect. Stunning sea views from the bedroom window , delicious breakfasts and a lovely house spotlessly clean. Pippa and Colin are charming hosts. I highly recommend South Ness House.

“Fantastic Guest House”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Pippa and Colin the owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Very comfortable room, spotlessly clean. Breakfast was fantastic, lots on offer on the buffet table and also a great choice from the cooked menu. Breakfast is served from 8 - 930am but because I was working early both mornings during my stay Pippa was more than happy to make breakfast earlier for me at 6.45am. You can also pre book home made soup and bread for a light evening bite which again was delicious. The dining room looks over the sea and it was a lovely bright room. Great location, and parking. Payment (at the time I stayed, May 2017 was cash only, which was not a problem) but maybe just check, I am sure that they will advised at the time of booking though. Looking forward to my next stay here at South Ness House.

An extremely comfortable and welcoming b and b, South Ness House is in a very quiet location close to the centre of Lerwick, with a lovely walk around the Knab just outside the front door. Beautiful large bedroom with uninterrupted sea views in two directions. Pippa and Colin were wonderful hosts. We hope to return soon!

“Excellent visit, lovely property & lovely hosts!”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I stayed here for 1 night whilst in Lerwick for business purposes, I was made to feel welcome from the moment I opened the door! Colin & Pippa went out of their way to show me around and ensure I had everything I needed for my stay along with their excellent facilities, and wonderful views they really have a lovely place here. Breakfast was delicious and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when the need arises and would recommend to anyone. Many thanks, Lee

“It was an exceptional stay.”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Absolutely fantastic silence in the house. One finally manages to hear one’s thoughts. Around - just the sea. Beautiful room and bedclothes, books. Elegant dining room, snow white table cloth, tasty breakfast, delicious cakes. Incredible Hosts: Pippa and Colin who took care of us in each and every smallest detail. Talks. Openness. One feels very welcomed. We wish we could stay longer. All the best to you.
