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

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. In fact it just seems to get better! Our usual room in the Castle was clean and comfortable. The food in both the Castle restaurant and the Conservatory restaurant is superb. We have dined at several Michelin starred restaurants and the Star Castle certainly compares favourably with them....

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.
