We had a open plan garden room with sea view and veranda. The garden rooms are a little way from the castle and architecturally not much to rave about from the outside but the interior is nicely furnished, spacious, comes with perfect pillows (I am a bit of a princess about pillows) and lovely views but pricey at £194 a...

I tried to make a reservation in this hotel. I positively replied in one minute after their question to confirm my reservation. After a week without an reply of them I send them an e-mail again. Their response was that the hotel was fully booked now and that they don't have vacancy anymore. That's what I call a really bad... More

What a fabulous hotel! Wonderful views over the sea to Samson from our very comfortable, if a touch small, garden room (28). Excellent, high quality food, beautifully prepared and presented. The chefs clearly knew what they were doing. Delightful, cheerful, attentive, helpful and professional staff in the Dining Room, Conservatory and Reception. The cleaning staff were very efficient and worked... More

Amazingly we realised that it was 6 years from our last visit and we were so pleased that the standards at Star Castle remain at such a high level. Friendly professional staff, fabulous food and of course Spider to collect/return us to the Airport. We will be back and it won't be in 6 years time.

We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and just cannot fault it. All staff without exception are welcoming and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. The quality and presentation of the food served in the restaurant is certainly on par with some of the best restaurants we have been to (including several Michelin starred). The atmospheric Dungeon... More

We stayed at the Star Castle and had our wedding at the Porthcressa Beachside Room. Our week at the Star Castle was superb enjoying fantastic views and sunsets from our Garden Terrace room. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful, always going the extra mile to ensure our 'wedding week' was truly an amazing week to remember. The food at... More

We enjoyed a first class meal in the Castle restaurant, the young waiting staff were so helpful, friendly and professional. The Star Castle is such an atmospheric place and situated in a stunning location on The Garrison overlooking the harbour with views of all the off-islands. It's usually very busy so book early.

We have just returned from a 3 nights stay at this most amazing hotel. This was my gift to my husband as a birthday present. We both agree that it is one of the best breaks we have had for some time, thanks to the staff, service, location, dining experience, etc, etc,etc. The hotel arranged collection from the airport by...

We've eaten at the Star many times whilst on holiday in the Islands, and have stayed a few times. It's a place I can't wait to come back to, the staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are very comfortable and quiet and the food is wonderful. This hotel has maintained high standards for many years, and hopefully for... More

Had a brilliant 4 days on St Marys not least as a result of the unique Star Castle. If you like tranquillity, winter is a great time to visit the island as it is almost totally closed....well except for the atmospheric Star Castle and a few key good pubs. Easy to walk out and around the whole island from the... More
