Absolutely loved the hotel with its stunning views, wonderful staff and amazing food. The Scillies is a magical place, we cannot wait to return in the future to explore more of the islands and stay in the wonderful hotel.

Don't be put off by the unprepossessing entrance - this hotel is a gem. It's situated very conveniently near the harbour and shops, is right on the beach, and its main attributes for us were the view over the harbour from some bedrooms and the comfortable lounge, and the excellent staff who all made us feel so welcome.

Have just spend 7 nights at the Schooners Hotel on St Marys, Scillies Isles. This hotel is amazing. We had the most amazing room which overlooked Town Beach and it enabled me to watch all the Gig Racing Championship. The room has a superKing bed which has to have been the most comfortable bed ever. We had breakfast (the choice... More

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
