Fort Charlotte Guest House
Ranked #2 of 12 Lerwick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 December 2013

I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are spotless, the breakfasts are tasty and of quality, if you come up on the boat they will take in your bags early, when you check out you can leave your bags, there is storage for cycles and the hosts have a wealth of knowledge of the islands. Only one negative, it is all stairs. The price that is paid for a central B&B.

Room Tip: There are single, double and family rooms, because the B&B is on the main street, there are room...

Very good value, friendly owners, clean rooms, and centrally located. Tasty breakfast too. Rooms were nice and warm even in the height of winter. Wireless internet was quite intermittent but you don't go to a bed and breakfast for its wifi.

As I travel extensively on business I stay in a lot of different places and this is definitely one of the best B&Bs available in this part of the world.
The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and the breakfast is more than adequate. Centrally situated but in a quiet location. Great value too! Very friendly and accommodating owners. have recommended to others and would happily do so again.

Central and yet quiet location, very clean, great breakfast, comfy rooms, knowledgeable and friendly hosts. I stayed 5 nights in a single room and even though it was the smaller one of the two singles available, it was very cosy, tastefully furnished, had a comfy bed and all the toiletries, nice biscuits, hairdryer, etc which you would expect from a hotel. In fact it really felt like home. I will definitely come again but next time with my husband and book one of the super looking doubles.

Recommend the live music nights in the "Lounge" Pub/ Bar on Wednesday nights only a couple of minutes walk away from the guesthouse, Hay's Dock Restaurant at the Shetland Museum for lunch and the Waterfront Bar and Grill for dinner.

lovely clean place to stay and very friendly hosts. I would highly recommend anywhere in the Shetlands to go for a holiday solo. This b&b was so close to everything and easy to find. The host even carried my bag from the car to the room.

Room Tip: ask for ground floor if you dont want steps

My room was clean very well furnished and in good decorative order. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice well prepared and I didn't have to book a time slot. The owners were very friendly and a mine of information on transport, sights and where to eat. If they didn't know they found it out. B&B is very competative and Fort Charlotte is up there with the best.
