I thoroughly recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and very kind and helpful when my husband became ill. Our bedroom had a beautiful panoramic view of the harbour and we could hear the waves breaking on the beach below. The food was amazing the 3 course evening meal was always delicious and well presented. Haute cuisine at cafe prices.

We've just returned from a fantastic 5 night holiday at The Schooners. This was a family holiday and to celebrate my 60th birthday. The hotel is brilliant, spotlessly clean, right on the beach, rooms with breathtaking views over St. Mary's Harbour and all needs, more than adequately catered for. Joanna and her team are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble.... More

We had an excellent time here, the room was amazing and so were the staff. It was so nice to hear the sea at night ! Right in the centre of St Mary's - best breakfast we had in the island. I would definitely recommend and will be coming back soon !!!!

Just back from 5 fabulous days at the Schooner hotel. We were in room 11 with breath taking views across the harbour. The room was spotlessly clean when we arrived and this was maintained throughout our stay. The bed was comfortable and the en suite was lacking nothing and always clean. The food was superb with generous portions and there... More

We had room 14. Large attic room superb comfortable bed and en suite, situated by the lounge with sea views. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Try phoning direct to get better rates..... Situated right in the town between the beaches. A short walk from the ferry. Thanks to all the staff...

The staff were excellent and the view from the bedroom window overlooking the harbour was stunning! Rooms are, as I imagine is the case in all the hotels in the islands, expensive compared to the mainland. For the price our room was very small; it was hard to walk round and there was limited storage for luggage. However, the room... More

When I think of all the hotels I have stayed in, all over the world, from Mongolia to Manchester, I will count Schooners as one of the best. The warmth of the welcome, the sincerity and great helpfulness, especially of Joanna, the widest smiling hotelier you could ever wish to meet - all made for a tremendous stay. Their rooms... More

We booked on the Sunday and by Tuesday we were there. The staff were very friendly and so obliging, nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed for a week in this lovely hotel right by the attractive harbour of Hugh Town. Our room overlooked the harbour. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff, particularly the young lady on reception and the young man serving breakfast and evening meals were charming and could not have been more helpful. The owners were also very pleasant....
