Everything about this guest house was wonderful! Caroline was very responsive to all our inquiries before arrival. We had a lovely, large, comfortable room overlooking King Harold Street which gave us a distant view of the bay. Caroline was very hospitable and a wealth of knowledge about Shetland, offering us excellent suggestions of places to see including hiking in Vementry and visiting the very dramatic Eshaness. She even gave us apples to feed ponies and fish to feed seals! The guest house is in walking distance to the town center and to Tesco, delicious Fjara (restaurant/coffee shop) and bay. Shetland is absolutely beautiful; having such a lovely place to stay after a long day of exploring was so wonderful. Highly recommend!

Our one night stay was excellent. Mostly because of our early arrival. We had the chance to leave luggage in the room at 7 am! Something very unlikely elsewhere. We also had express breakfast as promised once arrived. The room was spacious and comfortable. Recommended.

We had a really wonderful stay at the Solheim House. The breakfast was amazing, the bed was very comfortable, and the hosts had great suggestions about places to go explore. If I can ever make it back to Shetland, I'd definitely stay here again!

We were very fortunate to be able to find a room in Lerwick and especially lucky to have gotten a wonderful family room for our stay in Shetland. We were delayed and missed our connecting flight to Shetland but Andrew assured us that our room was waiting for us. We found our room to be clean and spacious. We appreciated the delicious Scottish breakfast as well as the helpful advice and background knowledge Caroline, Andrew's mother, provided. We were within walking distance of the downtown and had lots of fun touring the countryside in our rental car. What a warm, comfortable place to call home for a few days!

Andrew's place is within walking distance to the pier, shops and pubs as well as public transport. The room we stayed in (twin Ensuite) was very spacious and quiet. We had a lot of help from our host with info about local things to visit and boat tours etc. Thank you for our stay Andrew
