Whether you are planning your first visit to Shetland, or you are a regular business visitor to the Islands, KGQ Lerwick Hotels Group welcomes you and, our aim is to help make your stay a memorable one.
Prospective visitors might also want to check our low priced direct booking room rates (probably the cheapest in Lerwick), that are NOT available to those who book via on-line booking sites, our Latest News page, or our General Information pages which contain a lot of additional information about how our hotels operate including, About Shetland (information for the curious), How to get to Shetland (advice for 1st time travellers), a "bucket list" of Things to do on Shetland (a good list of activities and pursuits to help you enjoy your stay), a Shetland Events Diary (a list of the major events and activities on Shetland) and a Shetland Photo Gallery that you are very welcome to submit your own photos to.

On top of all this, we have an IP Camera located on the roof of our Grand Hotel that offers a good view across the harbour to the island of Bressay. This camera also has a direct YouTube Live Stream that allows anyone interested to "Live Chat" with some of the regulars there. You might want extra information on the hotels or, you might want extra information on Shetland in general. This is one place that you can get it fairly quickly.
Please Note; Although the Hotel Staff and Management visit the chat stream. they do not take an active part in any discussions held there but, a team of volunteers should be available to answer any general questions you might have.
