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. The town facing, generous sized, family room was bright and airy, comfortable and perfectly clean. There was plenty to eat at breakfast and the evening meals were well cooked and extremely good value (3 courses for... More

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....

We stayed for a long weekend recently at Schooners, fabulous. Do not be put off by the entrance, or the stairs, which are a bit steep. We had a room overlooking the beach and harbour, it was just brilliant. The staff were very helpful, very friendly both in reception and in the dining room. We ate in, except on Sunday,... More

We have just had a lovely 4 night stay at Schooners. From the minute we entered Joanna and the team were on hand to make our holiday special. Although our room was classed as a small double it had everything we needed with a fantastic sea view over the harbour. Food was excellent and we ate dinner there every night... More

Amazingly friendly and helpful team of staff, fabulous sea/harbour view (Room 7), room spotless and bed comfy. Meals were generous, used fresh local produce and were delicious. The sail on the yacht was a fabulous unexpected bonus. I shall look forward to coming again. Great place to stay - handy to town and boats to off islands but also quiet... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here at Schooners Hotel! We arrived on the Scillonian at midday and walked just 5-10 minutes to the hotel. Joanna checked us in and had upgraded us to a sea view room (Room 6) with a wonderful view and able to hear the sea. It was a beautiful room, with huge double bed,... More

spent an excellent week at Schooners.Joanna and the team looked after us very well.Clean and fresh room (15) good lounge with great views over harbour, good breakfast and dinners.Room 15 is on 3rd floor and would not suit everyone as there is no lift. Easy access to all that Hughtown can offer. Would stay there again.

This was our first trip to the Scillies and with a late booking we were not sure what to expect. Joanna and her team were very helpful and welcoming, explaining the ferry luggage system and sending us the correct labels. On arrival, we had a nice leisurely walk through the town to Schooners on the town beach. Joanna made us... More
