Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay

Had a great time at Brekka Lodge. This was our first trip to Shetland and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. We have really enjoyed the views from the Lodge and would love to return in the future.

Absolutely loved our stay

We couldn't have wished for a better base for our visit to Shetland. It was well equipped, warm and so close to the beach. We absolutely loved it and will come back in the future - already checking out availability.

Stunning Aurora from the living room window

I was fortunate to book a long weekend at the lovely Brekka Lodge. I was delighted with the accommodation, setting and people. My trip was topped off with a stunning display of the Aurora Borealis, viewed from the Lodge living room window. A memory I won't forget. Thanks to the Keith's for a great stay.

the care and attention to detail are appreciated

We had a fantastic time at Brekka Lodge. It's a home from home - such a lot of care has gone into it. There are a lot of touches that you don't get elsewhere which we especially appreciated. Our highlight was watching the dolphins swim past on the shore a few minutes away from the Lodge. We loved our stay and look forward to coming back.

A Fantastic Holiday

Two weeks of walking, birds, seals, an otter, cliffs, beaches, ancient sites and so much more... The Lodge is a great place to stay - very comfortable and the views are magic - so calming. We went home relaxed having thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We will definately be back

Brilliant location and Brekka Lodge is a superb cottage. We had a fantastic week watching wildlife and sightseeing. We will definately come back to the beautiful Shetland Islands and will certainly be booking Brekka Lodge again. The welcome pack of local produce was also appreciated, thank you.

So much more that we imagined

A fabulous week at Brekka Lodge. The accommodation and aspect were all we could have wished for and more. Everything was fantastic, especially the comfy bed and super-powerful shower. The great kitchen was well equipped. Great views and just a short walk down to the beach where you are guaranteed to see at least curlew, terns, gannets, seals and so much more. Thanks to Sheila and George, fantastic hosts.

Thank you

A wonderful spot and equally wonderful accommodation. So peaceful and tranquil. Snipes drumming, larks and curlews calling, fulmars down on the shore and the lambs added to the entertainment! Our first but not our last trip to Shetland and Brekka Lodge. Great accommodation to return to each evening. Thank you for such a thoughtful and tasteful place to stay.

Merits everyone of its 5 stars

We visited Shetland for "Up Helly Aa". It did not disappoint in anyway and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Brekka Lodge merits everyone of its TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence 5 stars. Thank you for providing such wonderful accommodation, cosy and warm with all the comforts of home. Shetland itself has so much to offer. Thank you to Sheila for helping to make our visit to Shetland a marvellous one.

Book early

Our third visit to Shetland and Brekka Lodge, which is getting so popular we could only book a 7 night stay for next year - book early! A warm welcome from George and Sheila as always. The house was lovely, clean and well stocked again, thank you. The children loved the toy box, especially the trains. A lovely stay and we look forward to our next stay.

The best accommodation

We have had a lovely holiday and see Shetland at its best with wonderful weather. Brekka Lodge is the best accommodation we have had with peace, quiet and fresh air. We would like to return in winter to experience a storm and the northern lights.

Beautiful Lodge With Amazing Views

My husband and I stayed for a week in July and had a lovely week walking, island hopping and bird watching. We loved Brekka Lodge and Shetland so much that we booked another week in January to see the Lerwick Up Helly Aa. We weren’t disappointed, it was an amazing experience which is a must and Brekka Lodge was the ideal base. Brekka Lodge has everything anyone could ask for. It overlooks the sea and has access to a cove where inquisitive seals swim. The Lodge itself is cosy and Sheila, the host, has thought of everything. There are large comfortable beds and plenty to do on a rainy day. We would love to stay again.

One of the best places we have stayed

Thank you for the lovely accommodation, one of the best we have ever stayed in. All very clean and comfortable. We loved the views of the passing ships and wildlife, the binos never left the table and we hardly watched the television. This was our first trip to Shetland and we loved it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Luxurious, comfortable, clean and warm lodge. We couldn't have asked for better accommodation for our week long holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There is a little bay only 2 minutes walk away which is perfect for catching the sunrise.

A PERFECT PLACE

The perfect place if you just want to relax, but also ideal as a base to explore the islands. The lodge is well equipped, warm and comfortable with great views. The sort of place that you want to keep secret so that you can be sure of getting back again.

Lovely home away from home, can't imagine a better place to stay.

Brekka Lodge is an extremely comfortable, well appointed, and beautifully located home away from home. Everything we needed was provided, including beautiful views of the sea from the house and perfect weather (weather not guaranteed). It's a short walk down to the beach where we saw seals and the lime kiln ruins. The house is just a few minutes from Lerwick in the quiet countryside. We rarely saw a vehicle on the road but frequently saw the sheep and ponies in adjacent fields. We were five adults and found Brekka Lodge an ideal place for our week's vacation. I can't wait to return to Shetland and stay here again.

we had a fantastic stay

Brekka Lodge offers first class accommodation in a stunning location with sea views. The lounge is comfortably furnished and offers beautiful views out to sea. A TV and DVD player are provided, as well as a selection of books about Shetland. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need when self-catering and included a welcome pack of milk,butter, tea,coffee, oatcakes and chocolate brownies. Upstairs there are 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. Everything is very well maintained and immaculately clean. From the garden behind the lodge it is a short walk down to a small beach. Brekka Lodge is an excellent base for exploring Shetland and is only a few minutes from the main road and is only a 10 minute drive from Lerwick. The owners have thought of everything to ensure their guests have an enjoyable stay and I had such a good time that I have booked a return visit.

Special Place

Brekka Lodge is a rare find; a really well equipped, comfortable, clean house in a fabulous location. Ideally placed, 15 minutes from Lerwick and half an hour from Sumburgh, it is also 5 minutes walk from a rocky beach with resident seal. During our stay in September, the house was always warm. It is exceptionally well equipped throughout; kitchen utensils, laundry, local information, toys and baby equipment. However, it is the little things that make a holiday cottage a real home from home and Sheila and George provide all these:- milk, butter and homemade chocolate cake in the fridge, oatcakes, fresh flowers on the kitchen window sill, foam bath, tissues, coffee, tea, condiments etc. The bedrooms are large and they need to be to fit in the huge, comfortable beds and ample storage. Our 2 year old grandson loved the big bath and the bath toys. My abiding memory of Brekka Lodge will be the view from the living room window towards Bressay and Noss, especially as the sun rose. It is a very special place.
