Here are some comments from guests since opening in 2009:

“Thank you Leisel for a lovely stay with all the home comforts! We’d highly recommend the studio – it is an excellent base for exploring Shetlands many delights!
Morag and Neil – August 2014”

“Thanks Leisel, lovely large studio and so much more than we were expecting. We found it far enough away from the centre of town to feel rural but close enough to walk there and back. Some recommendations: Jarlshof – Just eye opening; Huxter at Papa Stour – Where on a flat calm sea we saw 6 orcas slowly swimming by!; Sumburgh Hotel – A wonderful meal just when we needed after seeing all those birds on Sumburgh Head. A memorable stay.
Geoff and Moira, West Yorkshire – July 2014”

“This was a lovely nest to settle into, bright and pleasing, covering all our needs. Thank you Leisel for your lovely smile and hospitality....The Shetland Folk Festival is a huge feat of volunteers and organisational skills that showcase the amazing Shetland musical talent and programs that keep the fiddle tradition thriving. It has been fantastic and memorable. The Family History Society’s devotion lead us to family roots... old cottages and several 5th cousins.
Ann and Richard, B.C. Canada – May 2014

“Many thanks for the warm welcome and for making us feel immediately at home. Weather came up to expectations and did not disappoint.
Cliff and Orn, Thailand – November 2013”

“We have loved our week in Shetland and couldn’t have found anywhere better to stay than the Studio..... We went up to the Northern Islands for a couple of days and it felt like coming home when we returned. We would love to come back again.
Lesley and David, Hertfordshire – August 2013”

“We have very much enjoyed our stay in Shetland, not lease because of the “Studio” and Leisel’s hospitality, care and attention. “Small but perfectly formed” springs to mind – although we found it more spacious than we were expecting. Thoughtfully designed, decorated and kitted out, well situated and very comfortable. Highly recommended – we would definitely come here again.
Wendy and Maureen, London - August 2013”

“Thank you for allowing us to stay in your excellent studio. Comfortable, friendly and quickly home from home. This is our second visit to this amazing group of islands and your help and friendly support helped make it special.”

Rachel and Jethro, UK/Portugal, August 2012.

“What a lovely, comfortable, well furnished studio. It was a little ‘haven’ to return to every night. Shetland was amazing, spectacular views and the people were so friendly. Leisel was so accommodating and extremely helpful. I look forward to returned and will definitely be staying in the studio again.”
Lynda, Dumbarton, September and November 2012.
