Its the first time we have stayed at the Santa Maria and after reading some of the reviews we were concerned to say the least, however we were pleasantly surprised during our stay, we received a warm and friendly welcome and the room was very clean but dated, the breakfast was great and well cooked with varied options each day....

Having run holiday properties myself and worked extremely hard to achieve the standards necessary to get high star ratings, I was extremely surprised that this property had reached a 4 star rating . Access: Difficult and crumbling flight of many steep steps. You need to be very agile to negotiate these especially when you carry your bags up them!! Cleanliness:... More

It's very rare that I'll be seen to write a scathing review on TripAdvisor, but the gloves are off on this one. My wife and i had booked two nights at the Santa Maria Guest House, encouraged and persuaded by its prestigious 4 Star rating. On arrival we thought we must have gone to the wrong place, but reading the... More

It is such a shame that you did not share any views or complaints with me at the time of your 2 night stay so I could have had the opportunity to address them with you. Aged Sign, swapped with undergrowth: The sign can clearly be seen (as in your photo) and the greenery around it is the local agapanthus... More

Warm and friendly welcome. Unfortunately my room looked out onto the Garrison Wall, so I didn't have a view. Very central. The only drawback - the very steep concrete steps leading up to the front door which would have been daunting for the elderly visitors unsteady on their feet.

Room 2 was excellent. Double aspect of harbour and beach. Clean & friendly. Breakfast was good a little more choice would have been even better! Entrance steps need to be considered if you have a disability! Very good location for Harbour and St Mary's Centre. Wifi seemed to be a problem at times and we felt it an inconvenience the... More

Andy and Jacky made us welcome from the start with loads of information. Too much to take in all in one go. They were always on hand to offer help and advice. Service was superb at breakfast with our waitress Beth. We would not hesitate in recommending this guest house.

I stayed at Santa Maria for 4 nights and will definitely stay there again next time I go to the Scilly Isles. Jackie and the staff were very friendly and helpful, and my room was lovely and clean. Santa Maria is a short walk from the quay. It is up a hill, and there are quite a few steps up... More

Stayed for 3 nights at the Santa Maria, good location, close to the shops and beaches, although it is up a hill then a flight of steps, so you would want to give it a miss if you have walking difficulties, we tended to walk down to the town and get a taxi back. Our room was comfortable and clean,... More

We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay at Santa Maria. Made to feel very welcome and given useful information about the islands. (This was our first stay) Room was clean and the view was great. Within easy walking distance of harbour and beaches. Breakfast was promptly served and appetising. If you have dodgy knees then this is not the place... More
