We can not fault the staff at this lovely small hotel all go that extra mile to make you feel at home the food is excellent and has good if not better than many five star hotels we have stayed in. The rooms are spotlessly clean small but had every thing you could need. We had room six and the... More

The hotel location is difficult to beat, everything is on your door step. Friendly an attentive service, nothing is too much trouble. We had brought our bikes, and despite being advised we could leave them outside unlocked, they understood our concerns and brought them in for us every evening. We had room 8 with a sea view and double aspect... More

Schooners is a well run, small hotel situated virtually on the Town Beach in St Mary's. The views from the sea facing windows are glorious, so much so that, being on the third floor, we never drew the curtains during the whole of our stay. The atmosphere is homely and very friendly and the accommodation has been created in a... More

Our first visit to Schooners where their welcome and flexibility was second to none. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food excellent. The hotel was spotless, close to the harbour and offered great views. We much enjoyed an afternoon sailing on Carol and Keith's yacht and their hospitality and on any further visits to St Marys we would... More

Having arrived on there Isles of Scilly feeling rather weary after the night train from Paddington, and a 2hr 40min trip on the Scillonian, it was lovely to arrive at the hotel and be greeted by Joanna on reception. Our bags were already in our room, so after a friendly chat we were taken to our room where we settled... More

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
