Fantastic food, the breakfast really set you up for the day and the evening meal was equally as good as the meal we had at Star Castle on the Sunday. The superb staff could not have been more helpful Joanne went the extra mile every day. The perfect location easy to jump on the boats to visit the other islands... More

As an introduction to the Scilly Isles for some friends 3 days in this friendly and spotlessly clean hotel couldn't be bettered. Rooms are compact but acceptable and since the weather was great we spent most of our time outside anyway. Breakfast was a more than acceptable start to the day and thereafter you can choose from a 20 yard... More

Lovely hotel, the staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Joanne and Anuwat were delightful. The room was clean and had everything you needed. View straight onto the beach , great location. Food was superb and evening meal was £10 for 3 courses . Would definitely stay again!!

Stayed for 3 nights and had 2 different rooms as I was joined later by my husband. The hotel is in a quiet position right on the harbour beach and the sunset is free from the outside table by the bar. There are several quite narrow staircases and no lift so not so easy if mobility is an issue. The... More

We didn't want to leave! From the first moment we were welcomed by Joanne, who was so friendly and helpful, we loved the atmosphere of this beautiful hotel. The decor is perfect, the view from our bedroom onto the harbour was delightful, and the dinners were fantastic. All the staff were so helpful... our waiter was so efficient and friendly,... More

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
