I have seen lots of advertising for this hotel and it always looks lovely but we have been really disappointed by our recent stay. Good Points Great Location and views The professional driver that collected us from the airport - excellent customer service and help from him. Abby in the Dining Room - polite and helpful Housekeeping staff - really... More

Spent 10 days here for a long overdue holiday. Service was excellent from collection at the airport, the service in the restaurant to helpful advice from the resident boatman, Tim. We had a garden room which was spacious and very clean. Comfortable bed. There is a choice of restaurants but we had breakfast and evening meal in the Conservatory restaurant... More

Called in here for a drink while we walking around St. Marys. If we ever go back to the Scillies, this hotel will be our first choice to stay. Set on the top of a hill there are superb views from the gardens. We went to the bar where there was a good selection of drinks and a very helpful,... More

We stayed in one of the garden rooms which included a sitting area and outside decking area with beautiful views. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful and the food was delicious and very good value for money. We stayed for 5 nights and we're sorry to leave!

We stayed here on our wedding night (my wife was lucky enough to stay the night before too) and it did not disappoint. Wonderfully comfortable room and the service was as good as ever. As was the breakfast! This hotel does not come cheap, granted, but really does have that premium feel. From the moment you arrive until the moment... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our holiday on St Mary's. It was money well spent. I highly recommend going half board rather than B&B, we ate in the conservatory restaurant, which is basically a large greenhouse with a grape vine running around the roof. Although it was a really hot day and we expected to... More

Fab location (guess we were lucky with weather) but what a joy to walk out to that view across the harbour and surrounding islands and the sunsets WOW! Comfy bed, good food (kept up with gluten free requirements) helpful friendly staff and plenty of advice about what to do. Tim the boatman has a nice boat and is a real... More

We had such a lovely stay at the Starcastle. The staff were lovely - nothing too much trouble. We loved the hotel which is very charming and sympathetically decorated. The food was absolutely delicious and the location with views from the ramparts over the islands is wonderful

A wonderful stay! The food as always is the highlight and this time once again absolutely first class. In these days where food is more like a work of art but in most nothing more, it was good to eat beautifully presented food that had real taste and substance. This coupled with lovely staff throughout made the stay perfect. Thank... More

Room very good and comfortable, views to die for from the gardens The food was well worth the price infact a good 5 star over and above the 4 star rating advertising. The climb up to the hotel is well worth the effort and the staff very helpful and friendly we will be back ASAP.
