Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely peaceful place
Comfortable, sparkly clean wee house in a peaceful spot outside Lerwick. The local beer was a nice touch as a welcome, as were the locally made biscuits (superb). I was there during the 'simmer dim' (around the longest day) and the blackout curtains were very welcome - I had a great sleep, but also caught the first flush of sunrise at 12.30am. I'd definitely stay again - it was a work trip, but it would be lovely for holidays too.

Perfect base for exploring Shetland Islands
This location was perfect for our one week stay on the Shetland Islands. The apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals and served as a great base from which to explore Lerwick and the various islands. It's a bit outside of town and doesn't allow for easy walking into Lerwick, but if you have a car you're all set, or alternatively you can use a taxi. The Shetland Islands are beautiful and this is a great place to stay.

Spacious warm well equipped apartment above town - owners SO helpful
Location on hill above Lerwick is fabulous - near to supermarket and old town with great views. Apartment was spacious and warm despite snow, and washer/dryer much appreciated! Owners couldn't have been more helpful eg: brought us extra bedding when my son broke his arm, got us tickets to a Hall at Up Helly Aa, brought the viking gear for the children to see - amazing. The amount of info about things to do and places to go was SO appreciated as were the rucksack, sandwich box and flask. Nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you for your lovely review - we are glad you all enjoyed Up Helly Aa, it was a shame your son broke his arm...an extreme way to get out of the dancing, though am sure he enjoyed watching all the entertainment.

Great place to stay, certainly recommend
Great place to stay while in Lerwick for 2 weeks. Warm, clean and great views. Just what was needed after coming in from the cold, wet weather each day! Hope to stay again in the future.

Thank You Robert, it was lovely to have you both to stay, and we are glad Peerie Swaabie proved to be a comforting haven after a day working outside in the cold, wet and windy days that were gracing our shores! Its a lovely sunny day today! :-) We will be delighted to have you back again, Gillian & Steve

Overnight stay
I can fully recommend this apartment. It was warm, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and supplied with everything one might need. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk were supplied too. I rate this very highly.

Comfortable, warm and a very good base to explore Shetland.
Very well placed for Lerwick which is itself very central to explore Shetland. The rooms are very spacious, clean and well equipped with modern appliances. The overall atmosphere is very welcoming.

First rate accommodation.
This was a return visit, to a different apartment. Both visits have been fabulous. The accommodation is clean and tidy, comfortable and has everything you need. It is also very quiet - you wouldn't know there were others so nearby. I am a solo business traveller and this is a far better option than a hotel but I would love to come and stay here with my family too. The local beer, from the brewery across the road, waiting on the table is a particularly lovely touch. I'll be back without a doubt.
