We booked for a New Year break here - and although we'd been on the Isles of Scilly before and knew we'd enjoy that, the hotel was a gamble. But what a lovely place. Pleasant and cheery staff, very well trained and genuinely helpful. Some of the best food I have ever tasted (and I'm picky!), comfortable rooms and a... More

Lovely stay for NY. We had a garden suite and it was lovely. Would definitely stay here again. The views.... Very comfortable and the bed was so comfy. The meals in the main hotel were excellent. So was breakfast... What a choice. It was great to stay for 4 nights so we could have as much of the lovey food... More

Booked late for an August get away. Reservations could not have been more helpful. Arrived in the pouring rain but after a few beers over lunch in the dungeon bar the sun came out for the rest of our stay. We ate both in the Castle and the conservatory, food and service were more than excellent. Our room was in... More

Having never been here before I arrived with a little uncertainty but soon all those traveller doubts vanished. I was shown to my room which overlooked the ocean and was perfect luxury. You know when you get that feeling of wow when you open your room door and stand and gaze...well this place certainly has that. Doors opened onto a... More

Having stayed in the Star Castle many years ago and after many subsequent visits to the Scilles, my wife and I had an enjoyable short break. The weather was mixed but the accommodation and food more than made up for this. A garden room with a sea view is a good choice for spaciousness and (in good weather) a chance... More

The Star Castle is not like any other hotel. The main building is a fortified residence that once sheltered the future king (James II) during the English Civil War. It has a superb outlook over the rest of St Mary's island and a wonderful cliff top walk around the Garrison. Although views are restricted from the main building, there is... More

This hotel is real curate's egg. Great location but being castle there are virtually no views from inside due to the thick walls. Food was good particularly breakfast. Biggest disappointment were the garden rooms - very small, hardly room for two people to sit comfortably - asked for feather-free room but this wasn't ready so they had to take all... More

Have just enjoyed three nights at the Star Castle as part of a busy business trip to the islands. We were exceptionally well-looked after. There is a real buzz about the place, especially at breakfast time as guests are helped with planning their day including boat trips to the 'off' Islands. Somehow the staff engender an atmosphere where everyone seems... More

I have just returned to the mainland after revisiting the Scilly Isles. This hotel is set in a superb location, and I found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and courteous at all times. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they now have service in their conservatory which gives one a choice of where to have dinner in... More

We have just spent a delightful weekend at "the castle" as the locals call it. Our booking including flights was taken care of quickly and efficiently by the reception staff, simple as! That set the tone for a seamless weekend. Our suite, Rosvean, was beyond our expectations! Separate sitting room overlooking the harbour and beyond, bathroom and large bedroom. All... More
