Stayed 5 days in late August.

We flew into Sumburgh from Edinburgh after travelling up by car from Liverpool. I then picked up a hire car from Bolts Car Rental (nice clean car) and then travelled the 30 miles (approx) to Lerwick.

The owner (Jean) met us at the apartments at an agreed time. She showed us around the apartment and explained to us how everything worked, including the free wireless broadband.
The view from the Kitchen is very nice over to a bay, but don't be put off by a single story messy looking workshop at the back of the property. The guys who work there are friendly and they go home around 6pm....

Lerwick and the Shetland Islands are a true delight. The weather shone for us which is very helpful when you have 10 year old twin girls to entertain. If you have kids then take them to the Clikinmin leisure centre (10 mins walk from the apartment) as the Swimming Pool is brilliant, 2 x slides, plus diving/jumping boards!

We really enjoyed the holiday. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer!

Room Tip: Stay for at least a week - longer if possible. Get a hire car and enjoy the whole Island(s). Got to Bressay on the Ferry and eat at the Maryfield Hotel (3 minutes walk from the Ferry on Bressay). Excelent food (you are best booking first).

These apartments are a brilliant place to stay. The rooms are spacious and fairly well equipped (although a DVD player would be a good addition as the apartments currently lack these).
I stayed in the ground floor apartment as I was travelling with my husband and 7 month old son so thought this would be better for us, however I have stayed in the first floor apartment previously and that us quite good as well (only missing a dish washer compared to the ground floor).
The apartments are located about a 5 minute walk from the centre of Lerwick although please be warned the area is quite hilly. There is also a swimming pool & leisure centre near by which is worth a visit. Be aware if travelling by car that the apartments are on a one way street but the streets are easy to navigate.
Overall this is an excellent base to explore and we hope to stay here again on our next visit (we have relatives on the island).

Back to Shetland for the first time in 22 years with my wife who had never been before. Based in Lerwick as it's central for exploring the islands.
Stayed in the top flat for 8 nights and it suited us just fine.
To watch the gannets diving for fish as you wash the dishes is just fantastic.
See the website for details of the facilities.
It's a very warm flat so the windows spent a lot of time open but just about everything else was perfect. Perhaps a radio to listen to Shetland Radio would be an advantage but that's a small point.
Wouldn't hesitate to book again. Lets hope its before another 22 years

My wife and myself, our youngest son and his daughter (18 months) all stayed in the lower apartment whilst in Shetland for our oldest sons wedding in Brae. The apartment is spacious so you are not in each other’s way whilst moving about. The location is excellent, only a short walk from the centre of Lerwick. Excellent value for money as there is no additional charge for electricity. My son's only dislike was that it did not have SKY. The owners were very charming and always available on the end of the phone to provide any assistance or answer any questions. My wife's sister, her husband and brother stayed in the upper flat and they were of the same opinion as us. The only down side is that the upper flat has wooden floors and although it has many rugs it really depends on the guests as to how quiet they will be. The owners do have a notice in the upper flat asking guests to remover their footwear to reduce the potential noise. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
