Although we arrived in Lerwick at lunch time on the third last day of May the weather was cold, as expected!, so we were delighted to find that our hotel was comfortably warm throughout and continued to be so during our stay of four nights.
Our twin-bedded room was bright and airy, and provided ample storage space for clothes. The wardrobe had really user-friendly hangers with which we had no need to struggle, as is often the case with fixed hangers. We particularly appreciated the generous supply of tea, coffee. hot chocolate, milk and shortbread, replenished daily, and the provision of a teapot as well as a kettle.
The bathroom, while compact, had clearly been upgraded recently to provide the most up-to-date fittings and furnishings, including a fantastic twin-headed shower with one head being of dinner plate size. Lovely thick hand towels and bath towels were changed daily, there was a constant supply of piping hot water, with efficient temperature control for individual tastes, and all the usual toiletries were provided.
Breakfast was of the help-yourself-from-the-buffet type for juices, fruits, cereals and some particularly delicious yoghurts, while freshly cooked-to-order hot dishes were served at table. The full Scottish breakfast comprising numerous items was especially appetising, but there were also some very tempting fish dishes of Scottish kippers and Scottish haddock.
Staff in this small hotel deserve special mention for being so friendly, attentive and helpful and housekeeping staff can be proud of the excellent job they do in keeping all parts of the hotel clean and fresh.
The only negative relates to the pillows which we found to be unyielding and uncomfortable and sadly, of the type found too often in hotels that offer no pillow menu.
But I must not end on a sour note because this is a very good small hotel that offers fair value for money and is staffed by nice friendly people.
