“Wouldn't stay anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Stayed in Alder Lodge maybe ten times now. Room always good, hospitality excellent, Wifi, great breakfast and I can play with the guitars hanging on the wall!! Find the beds very comfy. Always slept well.

If there is somewhere better in Lerwick then I don't know about it. Recommended

Karen & Keith run a great B&B. Central location - 5 minute walk to Commercial Street. Spacious room, great breakfast and friendly hosts. Very helpful with local information and Karen with her tourism background certainly has the contacts.

We were made very welcome by Karen and Keith. This was our first trip to the Orkney Isles and it will not be our last. This guest house offers great value accommodation with a lovely breakfast and is very close to the centre of Lerwick. They were very helpful with suggestions for our stay and if we had more time we would certainly have stayed longer with them.

This lovely guest house fully deserves its excellent Trip Advisor ratings. Alder Lodge is very close to the centre of Lerwick and an ideal base for exploring the Isles of Shetland. Keith and Karen work very hard to make their guests comfortable and to make their stay memorable. The breakfast is excellent (especially the smoked haddock and egg!), the service warm and friendly, the accommodation comfortable and the location ideal. Free wi-fi and DTV in the rooms makes it very convenient whether you're in Lerwick for business or pleasure.

Stayed at The Alder Lodge for a week in Lerwick to visit the Shetlands. It had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The large room was very comfortable with all the amenities including a fridge which was very useful. Breakfasts were excellent and the choice available was very good. Karen and Keith were the perfect hosts and nothing was a bother. We hope to go back again.

Karen and Keith Anderson really go the extra mile. They washed my clothes, gave me lifts, offered advice... Karen sprung into action when I wanted to find local music. The house and staff are genuine, warm, mattresses are new and comfy. TV has a billion channels. I had a really fantastic stay. Thank you.

Located just a few minutes walk from the main street in town. We were greeted by Karen, an incredibly friendly hostess! Our room was large and clean, and was really nice! There are opportunities to make coffee and tea in the room. Free Wi-Fi.One big plus in our room were two armchairs we could relax and watch TV and so on. Breakfast is nothing more speciall than elsewhere in Scotland, but perfectly OK. The only drawback is that some of the rooms look out into the main roads out of town. This causes some noise. Ask for one room in the backyard. Can definitely recommend this hotel!
