To augment our normal cleaning regime we have invested in nano-diffusers which disinfect switches, door knobs, remote controls, coat hangers etc. We also have a hand sanitising station at the entrance of every apartment for our guests to use. STAY SAFE. This apartment is not suitable for young children as no child proofing/child safety equipment is provided and may not be suitable for guests with mobility problems. Completed in 2016 Saltness is a high quality one bed apartment with open plan fully fitted kitchen/dining/living room. The bedroom is a double (4ft 6 inches, 138cm wide) and there is a shower room with under floor heating. This well appointed apartment is situated in the historical conservation area in the centre of Lerwick - a stone's throw from Commercial Street which is the main shopping area of the town with numerous cafes, bars and restaurants and is only 100m from the busy picturesque harbour and esplanade. Access is via external flight of steps. 15 STEPS OVER TWO FLIGHTS FROM STREET LEVEL. Being located in the historic town centre the flats do not have designated parking. However, there is free public parking close by from as close as a few metres away (overnight) on the main street to up to 200 metres away for free public parking areas. There is also pay and display parking available on Victoria Pier which is approximately 100 metres away (approx. £4 for 24 hours). The apartment is an ideal base from which you can experience all that Shetland has to offer; a car is not always necessary as there are regular bus services to most areas. Nearby, within walking distance, is the museum, town hall, Fort Charlotte, cinema, leisure centre and swimming pool, Clickimin Broch, 9 hole pitch and putt golf course, seabird boat tours and a beautiful coastal walk around Lerwick during which you may see local birdlife, seals and the occasional porpoise. Further afield the world famous Shetland ponies are a popular sight along with the puffins at Sumburgh Lighthouse, the croft house museum, Jarlshoff and Scatness archaeological digs. There are numerous beautiful beaches scattered around Shetland's stunning coastline, the most popular and spectacular of which is St. Ninians located south of Lerwick. The local Tourist Office is 25m away from the apartment and the friendly staff will be delighted to help you organise an itinerary to suit your interests should that be bird watching, sealife, wildlife, walking, fishing, knitting, music, golf, history, food etcMore
