Tina and Bob made us very welcome and Bob's breakfasts were delicious. the room was well furnished and comfortable. The guest house was very well located for local restaurants and the harbour, it even has its own boatman coming every morning to advise the daily boats trips. I would recommend this guest house to anyone visiting St Mary's.

This is the fourth trip to the Isles of Scilly we have made and our third stay with Tina and Bob in the Shearwater Guest House. They not only make you warmly welcome the rooms are immaculate and the breakfasts are consistently the best we have had in a guest house. Bob varies the menu with mouth watering "specials". For...

From our arrival 'till the day we left, our hosts could not have assisted us more in confirming our intention to return. Extremely well placed for close access to shops/restaurants, as well as good place to begin walks around St Marys, or down to the harbour for choice of boats to all the other islands. Clean room (4) & well... More

Very comfortable. Very good service from Bob and Tina. Great breakfast. They were very helpful and sorted out our needs and gave us some good advice as to where to eat. Will stay again when next go to St.Mary's.

First trip back to the Scilly's in a long time and our first time at Shearwater - very friendly hosts with a cosy clean guesthouse - Bob does a great breakfast too! I can't recommend it highly enough - hopefully we'll be back there soon....

Tina & Bob run a relaxed, personal and friendly business very in-keeping with the Islands. Handy for all St Mary's amenities, mainland ferry/aeroplanes and off-Island boats and excursions. Service/Food/Rooms/Cleanliness/Prices etc are excellent in every way - if you don't believe me book up and find out for yourself!

We were warmly welcomed by our hosts, the room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were lovely. The only downside was the lack of wifi in the room. The B&B is very well located and quiet and the other guests appeared to be regulars going back year after year which is always a good sign. We would definately return for... More

This was our first but am sure not last visit to the Scilly Isles with group of friends and staying at the Shearwater was ideal. Bob and Tina are really helpful, friendly and fun hosts with nothing too much trouble. The breakfast was brilliant and set us up for our days walking on the very different islands, still cannot decide... More

We have just spent an amazing week at the Shearwater guest house in St Mary's on the Isles of Scilly.
