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. 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
