Owners Carol and Keith made our holiday even more special this year by taking us out for an afternoons sailing on their magnificent Ketch. Joanne and the team really make your stay here feel special as you become part of the family and you will even want to talk to the other guests over coffee to decide what to do... More

We recently visited the hotel for the first but certainly not the last time. Tucked away behind the main street, I never knew the place existed but what a revelation! Spotlessly clean, fantastic food and excellent service. The views over the harbour are unbelievable and the quay is practically on the doorstep. The breakfast choices are excellent and substantial and... More

We took an aged partly disabled parent for a break on the Isles of Scilly with some trepidation. However, we were delighted with the kindly and efficient care and attention afforded by this pleasant little hotel. The views over the harbour are magnificent, the rooms clean and comfortable and the food fresh, simple and nicely cooked. Joanna , the manager... More

My new wife and I stayed at Schooners Hotel at the beginning of June 2014. Located down an alley just off the main street through Hugh Town, the entrance is at the side of the hotel. To be honest it's not the most glamorous entrance, but do go on in - it's so worth it! This was our first time... More

This is our fourth stay at this hotel. It has a great team looking after you. Joanna is so welcoming and was extremely helpful when we had a problem with checking in for flights. The meals cooked by Paul, Joanna's partner, are scrumptious with several choices for each course on the menu and served by a pleasant and efficient young... More

We can only echo the recent reviews on the right! Lovely staff, super food and a view to die for from our room 8. Only a short stroll to the jetty, passing all the few shops that you might need, Inconspicuous entrance to a treasure!

I stayed here for a week with a small tour group. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Joanne in reception was so helpful and her husband cooked the most amazing meals all week. Three courses each evening with several choices for each. Don't even think of trying other restaurants nearby.We did on the Sunday evening when the Schooner... More

This may be a 2* hotel but the team of 4 staff (led by Joanne the manager) made it feel like 5*. They could not have done more for us - nothing was too much trouble. The food was all home cooked and delicious, and after a tiring day enjoying the beautiful islands, the beds were sooooo comfortable. I cannot... More

This small but comfortable hotel is superb. This is our third visit there and on each occasion the standard has been extremely high. The rooms are clean and comfortable with brilliant views over the harbour and the food is always of the highest standard. All the staff are efficient, friendly and helpful - particularly our lovely Joanna on reception -... More

My wife and I stayed at The Schooners for 4 days May 2014. We were greeted by Joanna the receptionist, and from the time of that first meeting to the time we left she could not do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble, and that includes the waiting staff in the dining room. The room we stayed at... More
