The property ownerHosted by Rebecca
Ortolan House is a large Georgian townhouse with notable history, dating from the 1780's and situated in the leafy conservation lanes area of central Lerwick, overlooking the harbour. Ortolan House is the family home of Rebecca, Phil & daughter Ayda who also own the highly acclaimed Noss Boat - Shetland Seabird Tours.
They have two beautiful rooms to let on the second floor of the house, both en-suite, tastefully decorated and with fine harbour views. The house has a large, sheltered, walled garden and quiet location. It is comfortable, relaxed place to stay and a perfect base to explore from.
Whimbrel Room (Peerie Whaap) is a spacious, 2 x double bedded room with fine harbour views and large walk in shower within the en-suite bathroom. Curlew Room (Whaap) is a slightly smaller twin bedded room with an attractive, en-suite bathroom and harbour views.
Breakfast is a large, locally sourced, continental style affair, with daily variations, from large fresh fruit bowl, cereals and yoghurts, to Bressay sausage baps in local Sandwick Bakery rolls, free range fair isle boiled eggs, fresh rhubarb compote and mixed local toasting breads with Shetland butter and jams. There is a private B&B dining room on the ground floor which also has a small shop selling Fair Isle Knitwear, photographs, art prints, books and ceramics. Ortolan House B&B are proud members of a “Taste of Shetland”.
Overall, Ortolan House B&B is a beautiful and elegant Georgian townhouse in central Lerwick with fantastic views across the harbour to Bressay. The property is very spacious and has a well-kept garden. With a warm and outstanding hospitality atmosphere, there is nowhere better for people who wish to experience the wonderful delights Shetland has to offer.
