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.

Another enjoyable week staying at Brekka Lodge, so comfortable and clean.
We have stayed many times at Brekka Lodge and keep returning. We have already booked for August 2019. The accommodation is perfect, so comfortable and clean. I have been fed up with the state of several cottages we have stayed in recently, here, I can walk in and not have to start cleaning or be greeted with horrible cooking utensils. Sheila is always on hand if needed but is respectful of our privacy. Fladdabister is a lovely location and just a short stroll from the cottage is the pretty pebble beach with walks available along the coast. This July, the area has been very busy with nesting birds such as Turns. Nearby are many of the sites worth visiting such as Sumburgh Lighthouse and St Ninians beach. I will always recommend Brekka Lodge as a lovely and well maintained cottage to stay in.

Excellent
A spacious, well presented and well-equipped property well located for exploring all of Shetland from Sumburgh Head to Muckle Flugga. A short drive from the town of Lerwick for the ferry or Sumburgh and Tingwall airports. Very peaceful and a lovely beach a few minutes walk where most evenings we saw a seal or three. We also had a snipe on the lawn each evening. The owner was helpful and quick to respond to queries and provided a nice welcome pack of goodies and useful things.

Sparklingly fresh, clean and spacious, with views of sea and hills
Our first visit to Shetland. Brekka Lodge is a few miles south of Lerwick. The house is built of wood (as are a lot of houses on Shetland), warm and well-insulated. The owners live next door and are welcoming and friendly. Thanks to clever positioning of the large windows overlooking the coast and fields, there is no feeling of being overlooked or having one's privacy impinged upon. The bedrooms are large and the house is decorated in cool, fresh colours. Sheila mentioned that they have been letting Brekka Lodge for 9 years, but everything was so clean, neat and new-looking that we could easily have thought it newly built! As principal cook in the family, I greatly appreciated the best-equipped kitchen I have ever come across in a holiday cottage. The cottage is within an easy walk of the beach - yes, we saw a couple of seals. Or they saw us: they popped their heads above the waves and stared at us for several minutes. And visiting in April, the fields next door were filling rapidly with newborn lambs.

Another World
This was our second visit to Shetland in 9 months so much has the place got under our skin. Brekka Lodge only made us love it the more. Really well-appointed, sparkling and roomy accommodation in the most stunning location with views over to Bressay and Noss and, what we thought of as our own private beach, no more than 5 mins walk away. Fladdabister is an excellent base to explore the whole island and really well-placed for Lerwick and Scalloway. There is excellent walking straight out of the lodge along the coast and, as we found, the natives are exceedingly friendly. Our host, Sheila, was no exception to this and made us most welcome with nothing appearing too much trouble. Overall, the perfect package in the stunning other world that is Shetland. Our only worry is that the justified popularity of this property, means that we will have to decide soon which weeks to return next year before they get booked up.

Great property in fantastic location
Stayed for 5 days in March at Brekka and really enjoyed it. Property is very well equipped, warm, very clean and easy to find. Lovely cove a few minutes’ walk away where we saw seals. Short drive north to Lerwick and only 25 mins from the airport. Small shop and cafe (MacKenzies) which can be walked to if needed. Shetland is stunning.

Beautiful Lodge with amazing views
My husband and I stayed for a week in July and had a lovely week walking, island hopping and bird watching. We loved Brekka Lodge and Shetland so much that we booked a week in January, dragging my sister, her husband and three year old son to see Up Helly Aa. We weren’t disappointed, it was an amazing experience which is a must and Brekka Lodge was the ideal base. Brekka Lodge has everything anyone could ask for. It overlooks the sea and has access to a cove where inquisitive seals swim. The Lodge itself is cosy and Sheila the host has thought of everything. There are large comfortable beds and plenty to do on a rainy day. We would love to stay again. 😃

Comfortable and perfect location
This is a lovely, comfortable property in a great location tucked away near a secluded bay (seals and otters at play) but very convenient for Lerwick and getting around Shetland. The owners were very flexible and friendly and the house has all the facilities you could want and was ideal for our needs.

Fantastic well equiped lodge with views to die for
Everything you need for a self catering holiday in the amazing Shetland Islands, I would recommend searching through the drawers when you get there as it has everything you need from picnic bags to cool blocks in the freezer. It could not have been cleaner and the location is fantastic. The bedrooms are extremely large and the fittings are of the highest quality. We even saw Orcas within around 400 yds just outside the small cove which is less than 5 minutes walk away.
