Warm n friendly
Met with a smile and it stayed that way, friendly owner who went out of his way to please the guest, property was clean, tidy and well presented, breakfast was enough choice to feed an army, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, toast with cheese and spreads, croissants, breakfast bars etc, There was home made cakes and muffins. Property was only two minutes from the sea front and shops. I would choose to stay there again if I return to Lerwick, thank you Nigel for a wonderful stay.
