we are locals and live on st Mary's and decided on the castle for my husbands 50th birthday we were warmly welcomed with pre dinner drinks in the bar, there was a good choice on the menu and we were not disappointed in what we had, but the main reason for writing this is to say what excellent quality of...

If the rating system allowed I would rate this as a good hotel (somewhere between the Average rating and very good.) The cost of the hotel would be OK if everything met expectations but unfortunately it fell short in some aspects. We visited 27 - 30 June. It was a special occasion ( a significant milestone birthday) therefore we had... More

We visited St. Mary's on a day trip. My husband is the king of researching to ensure we always get the most out of any trip, he advised a visit to the star garrison, with lunch at the star hotel. What an excellent choice, although the lunch menu waslimited, this was no bad thing, we all opted for the burger,... More

Our 2nd visit to Star Castle and it's been too long in between. Nothing has changed everything is so good, comfortable, relaxing and beware the food is dangerously tasty. From the staff, the hotel, the restaurant and the setting everything is perfect. great stay and will be back.

It's a funny place is Scilly. The places that preen themselves are often well down my pecking order of favourites, while the ones that don't shout to the skies are close to top off the list. So, having endured the service vagaries of the vaunted Hell Bay Hotel on Bryher we called by the Star Castle on St Mary's in... More

For our 50th wedding celebration we decided to stay in a hotel a little more expensive than our usual choice. What a good decision! The star castle majors on customer service. An owner who does his best to make your stay enjoyable and staff who seem to have the same ethos. The food is superb, the service excellent but unobtrusive... More

After a break of a few years, we fly again to St Mary's from Land's End airport, with grandchild and parents (their first visit to the Scillies). We were conveyed to and from the hotel by Mr Spider - efficient as ever. Our adjoining accommodation was in the very comfortable Garden Rooms with wonderful sea views. The good weather made... More

It has been ten years this September, but my trip the Scilly Isles stands out in my memory and heart. I loved every minute exploring this magical place, including the other islands. The Star Castle was the cherry on top! The food was magnificent, the views were breathtaking and the room was well appointed. We stayed in one of the... More

I can rave on about the food and the service in the restaurant. Everything was fantastic. Combinations were unusual and menu descriptions mouthwatering and every course lived up to expectation - great wine list too. The seafood is especially delicious - so fresh. We had a garden room which was well appointed but not what I'd judge as 4 star... More

My expectations of this hotel were very high given reviews and what friends on the Scillies had told me, but my expectations were exceeded. It is undoubtedly one of the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the world (only one in Canada and one in the US match it). It was an excellent experience from the moment 'Spider'... More
