The hotel is kept tidy... More

This hotel, a former fortified garrison of the 18th century occupies a commanding & draughty position above the town. It is a stiff walk up but worth it. We occupied a garden room (12) in a very well maintained area. The room was well furnished & quite large. The food was quite superb in freshness & presentation. Plenty of fish.... More

This hotel has it all. Great location combining superb views, with an interesting history, and unusual architecture. We found all of the staff we met during our 6 night stay very friendly and helpful especially the 3 ladies Sarah, Zoe and Rachael who shared Reception duties. The food was some of the best we have had in a family holiday... More

Stayed four nights in the main castle. Rooms are quirky as you would expect but beds are comfy, all mod cons are there and the views are magnificent. There are garden rooms too which are more modern. The pool is a great little extra but we didn't have a lot of time to use it as we were busy exploring... More

An excellent hotel with great staff and views of St Marys and other islands. Can do walks directly from the hotel, around the garrison which are required to work off the excellent dinners. We took Scillonian boat from Penzance as cheaper option than flying but does take 2 hours 30 mins, plenty of seating inside and outside and a very... More

Fabulous place. Wonderful history and beautiful scenery. Our family visited here on our first yachting trip to the Isles of Scilly and were enthralled with this place. We had coffee in 'the dungeon' - the experience is a must for visitors.

Excellent location with wonderful views over St. Mary's and the other islands. Friendly pick-up at the airport, and a warm welcome from reception on arrival at the hotel. We stayed with our dog in a garden room with verandah, and we found this arrangement perfect for us. Beautiful sunsets every evening as we sipped a glass on wine on the... More

Booked after reading reviews. isn't cheap but is special! Stayed in a castle room which was everything I hoped for. The meals in both the Castle restaurant and The Conservatory were exquisite. The Scilly Isles are lovely - do visit.

We have stayed here a number of times and it really does get better, as we fall more in love with the Scilly Isles I guess! The service, food, rooms and views second to none, and it's the place to stay on the islands. Thank you again for one of our best holidays x
