  • A brief moment to stop in a place with good view. It is accessed with a picturesque walk through the city if it is that you have good eye to admire the buildings and the years they were built.

  • interesting site. with some of the site available to explore. good views overlooking Lerwick and some information on the purpose and story behind the fort.in the town centre so easy to get to. 
  • Difficult to get a great photo of Fort Charlotte as they have built in front. The history behing the fort though is very interesting.

  • Great accommodation, super housekeeping. Will definitely look for the availability of the hotel when visiting lerwick next time.
  • October 2016 Just loved Fort Charlotte Guest House in Lerwick. 😊. We arrived in Lerwick from the ferry early Sunday morning. As nothing was open, we drove around to establish our bearings to begin our 4 day sight seeing trip of The Shetland Islands. With no accomodation pre-booked, we searched online and found Fort Charlotte Guest House. And yes, accomodation was available! We were directed to a free car park nearby and even greeted by our hosts who carried our luggage for us. Such a cosy double room with ensuite. During our stay, we were offered lots of recommendations for sightseeing, daily trips, eating places as well as local information and use of their maps while we were there! Then of course there were delicious cooked breakfasts daily to start our days off well. Our rooms were serviced daily, fresh towels, tea and coffee facilities were topped up and even our overnight washing rearranged to enable better drying. What more could you ask from your hosts? We were delighted with our short stay, as Lynn and Jim made us feel so welcome. We felt that we acquired so much more local knowledge of the Shetlands through many opportunities to chat to and interact with our hosts. Thanks for a most enjoyable stay.
  • Very nice atmosphere. Hotel clean, breakfast very good. I would recommend this hotel 100%

  • I'm sorry to say this, but a couple of days ago, I was looking for a room in this hotel. When the door is closed the hostel I found ... on the phone I wanted to ask for accommodation. That was impossible. Because the hőlgy talked ... after 10 minutes of conversation drags by and not kőzőtt wanted to finally say, why not open the door of the hotel guest before???? And has not responded to what I asked ... How is this Publisher is? place in ... Front door is closed, guests are not appropriate student ... I am the guest fogadásrol, good, or even very bad..!
