This bed and breakfast is superbly situated if one is using buses as they all stop within a 2 minute walk of the place. Room very clean and satisfactory although a small single. It I was next to the kitchen which was a convenience for making my packed lunches and storing items in the fridge and not a problem. It was possible to eat in the kitchen as well. Breakfast good and all covid safe. Would definitely use again

Comfortable, clean, excellent WIFI, great breakfast and helpful service - the owner brought breakfast forward to allow me to make my flight. Good central location too. Will definitely stay here again if I return to Shetland.

Everything was clean and thoughtfully prepared. The breakfast was scottish and home-made, tasteful and abundant.The mattres more than comfortable, perfect to rest after an intense day exploring Shetland. %100 worth it.

We stayed here as a family over 2 nights. We booked 2 rooms. We arrived early in the morning off the ferry from Aberdeen, we were made to feel very welcome and were able to get into our rooms straight away. We were given tips on things to see and do when in Shetland. The Guest House is centally located in Lerwick and only a very short walk from the main shopping street. The rooms are well equipped and were comfortable. Breakfast was of a good standard and always served with a smile. We very much enjoyed our stay here and would return if we found ourselves back in Shetland.

Where do I start? What an amazing stay. I booked Solheim a month or so before my trip, canceling my previously booked accommodation. Boy am I so glad I did. I stayed in Room 7 - top floor, own bathroom and a view to the water. After 3 nights in Edinburgh, I felt like I could finally breathe again when I walked into my room. It was spacious, peaceful and perfect. The hosts were so lovely and helpful and breakfast was always a cheerful affair. Short walk to the harbour and local points of interest. I stayed as solo female and felt safe and welcome at all times. It was nice to be in a place that knew your plans so if anything should happen, somebody would know. This is important as a solo traveler, especially female, to know someone is keeping an eye out for you. Couldn't recommend this place more highly. Do yourself a favour and choose here for your stay! If I return to Lerwick, I won't stay anywhere else.
