OfficeLodge is an apartment that combines office accommodation and fully serviced living accommodation in the centre of Lerwick. Developed as a base for Inksters to meet clients and more effectively deal with business in Shetland, it operates as a distinct business in its own right and is let out to other business travellers to Shetland.

The objective of OfficeLodge was to create a home from home for business travellers. The innovative aspect is its combination of a serviced apartment with an office.

Brian Inkster said: "We are delighted that our work in establishing this innovative service for business travellers has been recognised by the most prestigious tourism awards event in the Highlands and Islands."
