A late booking to the wonderful Scilly Isles meant we had little choice but we were very fortunate to stay at the Star Castle on St Mary's. Everything was excellent from being met at the airport by Tom (I think that was his name) to the welcome and instant character of this Elizabethan Castle high over Hugh's Town. Our room... More

Booked a meal in the conservatory menus arrived, no pricing which was a little strange . We were expecting a good selection of sea food, but had to settle for the roast beef !!!! It was absolutely wonderful, tender with a fabulous "jus" gravy to you and me. We were lucky to experience a suburb sunset. Expensive at £95 for... More

Bar open to non residents. Worth a visit to the unique dungeon bar with damp smell and cobwebs included. Really nice friendly bar staff. It's a short walk up the hill and overlooks wonderful views of the coast and over to Bryer Island. Not to much more to say other than it is a very different place to have a... More

After having booked this hotel and the night before realising it would cost double than I thought it would (per person per night, not per room!), I was a bit worried looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor and hoping it would be alright.... I needn't have worried!! Our room had the most fantastic sea view garden room with a... More

Good Points Great Location and views The professional driver that collected us from the airport - excellent customer service and help from him.

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
