I stayed only one night with Lynne and Jim, but would rank it as one of the most comfortable / best value stays that I have ever had at a B&B. It was recommended by a local, and I can see why. I booked a single room, but was upgraded to a twin – due to availability I suspect. The room (#1) was on the first floor with a pleasant view to the rear, up the hillside and across Lerwick to the steeple tower over the Town Hall. My room and the public parts of the B&B and were very well equipped, with free towels, toiletries, and wifi. Everything was spotlessly clean and looked as if it had just been redecorated or taken out of its packaging for the first time. The room was warm and comfortable, the double glazing doing a valiant job of keeping out the worst winter storm of the season. Tea was had from Jim’s fish and chip shop a few steps away, and was equal to the best that I have tasted. The cooked to order breakfast was outstanding too. The décor was a bit on the homely side, but that is what you should expect for a B&B. Access to and around the B&B would be challenging for someone with mobility difficulties (I care for someone in a wheelchair), but then most of Lerwick is on a hill of some sort in any event. The town clock chimed the quarter hours, but did so softly from a distance and was barely audible. At £35/night my stay would have been excellent value at twice the price, and I would recommend a stay with Lynne and Jim without hesitation.

What a wonderful stay! Despite the fact we had only two days on Shetland which makes it too short a visit, the stay at Lynne's and Jim's was marvellous. Directly after arrival by ferry we were welcomed in with a smile to drop our luggage and refresh before starting to explore the islands. We were provided with very helpful hints on where to go and where to stop by, not only for Shetlands but also for a night out in Lerwick. Breakfast is worth staying an extra night, the rooms are great, spaceous, nicely decorated (as is the whole house) and ideally located in Lerwick. Lynne and Jim are most friendly, great to have a chat with and helpful in every way. To sum it up, best choice there is if you want to visit Shetland. So thanks for a great memory and all the best until we meet again, Michael PS:And a wee tip for those about to visit: just opposite the GH is a little Fish&Chip shop you don't want to miss...

A fabulous B&B. The room was charming, spotless, spacious and everything you need are there. Cookies, shortbreads and teas were offered in the bedroom ... And cookies were delicioussss :) Bathroom was spacious and everythings was ok. You will find lot of informations about Lerwick, Scalloway and all the Shetlands thanks to the leaflets in the bedroom. And if you need, Lynn and Jim will help you to know everything you need. The cooked breakfast was very tasty and you'll get a good choice of everythings : cereals, orange juice, apple juice, FRESH fruit salad ... The guest house was very well situated in the town centre. And it is not very expansive. Wifi was available and free. Owners were very helpful. On our last day, we left the guest house at 5.40am and they left some sandwiches, crisps, fruits and cakes in a bag in the fridge. We appreciated so much this attention. But they were helpful for everything ... if you need something, just ask them ! I don't know if we'll come back in Shetlands but if that is the case we'll come back in this guest house. Definitely !

I have just returned from a stay at the Fort Charlotte Guest House. The proprietors and staff do everything they can to make your holiday enjoyable. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well presented, with good quality toiletries in the en suite bathrooms. The breakfasts would defeat even the heartiest appetite and are cooked using quality ingredients. There are free view enabled televisions in every room, and free Wi-Fi throughout the building. The stairs are quite steep, but help with cases is available, and they are in the process of installing a second banister rail. There is parking for people with blue badges about 10 yards from the Guest House. I found it one of the nicest and best guest houses I have ever stayed in, and in spite of my mobility difficulties would choose to stay there again – assuming they had space. Make sure that you book early.
