We were so glad we chose to stay at Schooners in Hugh Town. Perfectly situated only minutes from the harbour and therefore perfect for connections to the off islands and just seconds from all the shops and restaurants in town. The recommendation was made by the tourist office - so helpful - and from the first call Joanna and the... More

The view from our room was probably the best we have ever had, ever, in all our travels near and far. The staff were lovely, Joanne on reception was so attentive and a joy to chat to. Breakfast was efficient and the lovely waiter was always polite even though it was super busy. The quiet upper lounge was ideal for... More

Most enjoyable holiday, all staff exceptionally helpful, friendly and service was faultless. Sea view wonderful to wake up to. One of the many highlights was our sail on the owner's boat - a perfect end to a memorable holiday. SD.

Schooners was excellent. Right on the beach and, being on the second floor over and early morning cuppa, we could lay in bed watching all the boats in the harbour through the picture window. Had planned to eat out some of the time but the food was so good we stayed in. Staff were very friendly and highly efficient. Would... More

We have just returned from a week at Schooners and immediately booked for another week next year in the same room (8) which, although small, was very comfortable and has fabulous views from its two windows over the harbour and towards Tresco. Although down a rather scruffy-looking side street, once inside all is warm and welcoming from Joanna on reception... More

This hotel is one of very few in Hugh Town. The sea view rooms have amazing outlooks but the rear outlook is not great. All hotels on the Scilly Isles are expensive and this hotel is no exception. Joanne and team are really helpful and accommodating, so full praise to them. We found the meals a bit on the small... More

We booked this hotel last minute and were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel exterior is deceptively ordinary but inside it’s a gem. Our room was on the top floor and was spacious, bright, very clean and airy. The bathroom was also spacious and nicely decorated. Across the landing was a large shared guest lounge/library with great views of the harbour.... More

I stayed at the Schooners Hotel for a week as a solo traveler, The Hotel was immaculate and each room had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Most of the rooms have an amazing Sea View, no problems getting a good nights sleep, with the noise of the waves gently in the background. The food was fabulous , always... More

What a great find! Stunning sea views from our room and the upstairs lounge.Excellent food and service and spotlessly clean. The friendly staff were outstanding and we would love to go back again. The hotel is right on the beach with view out to sea and the harbour. We loved the mini fridges on each level with fresh milk for... More

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.
