We had originally booked the Kveldsro Hotel but unfortunately it wasn’t open so we were transferred to the Lerwick. Hotel reception was modern as was the dining room (sea views) and the bar/area which was very comfortable. Breakfasts were ok and our one evening meal during our stay was tasty. We could not fault the staff at all, Angus, Scott and the lady at reception were very helpful and polite. The hotel didn’t appear to have many staff so these 3 seemed to be running the place between them. We had a sea view bedroom which was quite dark and tired looking. However there was a high standard of cleanliness and the small bathroom which looked like it had been recently updated had plenty of hot water. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the town with plenty of parking.

The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Lerwick, overlooking the bay and my room had a great view. My room was a bit tired - the radiator was falling off the wall and there was a musty smell. I had the window open whilst I was in the room. Plenty of hot water. I was disappointed that the room wasn’t serviced daily. We ate dinner in the restaurant - the food was ok but not special. Porridge at breakfast was nice.

Disappointing from start to finish. Tired rooms, unimaginative menus and staff who clearly require lessons in charm and building empathy would neatly sum up our experiences here. I’m not sure I’ve ever been shouted at by a hotel staff member before so that was a first. All because we sat somewhere we shouldn’t have. Next time I come to beautiful Shetland I will try and book somewhere else.

Had a great five day stay here. Hotel has a lovely view of the sea and you can walk along the coast from the doorstep. Best thing was the staff, all so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Made us really welcome and looked after us when we arrived early and tired from the ferry.

We have just returned from two nights at the Lerwick Hotel. From reading previous reviews we were not expecting much. We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is located on the seafront approximately 10 minutes walk from the town centre with bus stops outside for visiting other parts of the island. We were greeted by a very friendly member of staff and although we were a little early our room was ready. We were shown to a very comfortable sea view double room. The room was very nice indeed. Bathroom was clean and modern. We did not eat in the hotel at night but did enjoy breakfast both mornings. I cannot fault the Lerwick Hotel in any way and enjoyed our stay in Shetland very much
