I stayed at Eddlewood in August 2011 on business. It is a 3 STB star Guesthouse that is located close to the town centre (5 mins walk from Queens Hotel and main shopping area, 10-12 minutes from the excellent museum and cafe). I was referred to it by another B&B that was full. Note that the airport bus will drop/collect you from outside the Guesthouse
I had a twin room (single occupancy). I have not had uniformly good experiences staying on Shetland previously so I am cautious when trying new places. Eddlewood is very nice. Charlotte, the hostess, took over running the B&B late last year and appears to genuinely like having visitors stay. The common landing upstairs might have been more sympathetically converted (not by current proprietors afaik)but it’s bright and clean. The room was sympathetically decorated and comfortable and the bathroom was also very good. Beds were a bit soft for me but comfortable all the same. My room faced the main road but road noise was not noticeable.
The shower was excellent – a proper power shower that left you feeling invigorated and which held a steady temperature – bliss!. Last but not least, there is free wifi that works – this is important in Shetland as mobile broadband provision is sparse – you really need wifi access to do anything meaningful on your phone or computer.
Breakfast was nice and well prepared (I’m not a big breakfast person so probably not best person to comment) and refills/more toast offered which I always like.
All in all a very good experience and a facility I shall definitely be back to stay for my next visit … if they have space.
