Just back from a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night stay. Perfect position on St Mary's with a fantastic breakfast in the morning. Didn't get to try the evening meal maybe next time). Had a warm welcome from Tina and Bob when we arrived, but didn't see them when we left (sorry). Thanks to you both for making our trip so good.... More

A great place to stay and unwind. Tina and Bob are a friendly couple who can't do enough for you. The food is excellent both in quantity and quality. Miss staying here at your own risk. We will return, hopefully many more times.

Shearwater was a delightful place to stay. Tina and Bob are excellent hosts, informative and entertaining. The accommodation was super, as were all our meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days there on what was our first trip to the islands and have already booked our next stay at Shearwater.

This guesthouse is in a good central position close to the quay. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and the lounge was good for relaxing in. There were no problems at all.

Excellent in every way. Ideally situated in Hugh Town. Charming and very helpful owners. Food, both breakfasts and evening meals were very much better than we could have expected, and the accommodation was of an equally high standard. Tina and Bob provided detailed and very helpful advice on all the places we visited and nothing seemed to be too much... More

Camping in Easter seemed like a good idea at the time, but arriving on a very rocky crossing changed our minds, thankfully the Shearwater had rooms available. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were treated with service you'd expect from a 5 Star hotel. They were accommodating, from simple tickets for the boats, to advising... More

We decided to stay with Tina and Bob after giving up on camping during the freezing Easter break. They were so kind and accommodating with great information on the island and surrounding islands. The rooms were very clean and tidy and the whole place has a homely feel but is also very private. Bob and Tina even gave us as... More
