Booked a couple of nights rather last minute, and lucky to get availability in this well reviewed B and B. Location fine about 10 mins walk to harbour. Room very clean, but poor outlook if of concern, though not to me much as out all day. Carmen was most helpful and kind with anything I needed or information. The cooked breakfast as good as one would want, just with one other couple present, totally acceptable for me on a Covid level. This converted house has limited soundproofing; though hosts and guests were as quiet as normal, this the only factor I would mark it down for. Otherwise a great base to stay in St. Marys.
We had a lovely week at Colossus. The Property is ideally situated for exploring St Mary's. It's an easy walk into the town and the quay, for boat trips to the other islands. Carmen provided an excellent breakfast each day, with plenty of choice and Carmen was always happy to give suggestions of which part of the island to visit, depending on the weather and wind direction, and lots of information about the Isles of Scilly. Carmen was very aware of covid 19 precautions and we felt very safe.
We usually spend a couple of weeks a year (sometimes more) in Scilly and we have stayed in the self catering flat at Colossus a number of times over the years. We have come to regard the owners as friends that are always helpful and willing to do whatever is required to ensure a great stay. The flat (comprising kitchen, bedroom and bathroom) is always clean, tidy and everything is maintained in good working order - or replaced pretty quickly if it isn't. It's located about 1 mile from the quay which makes for a perfect walk in the mornings and evenings when going to catch the boats to other islands or find an evening meal in the town. As an option for self catering independence when staying in Scilly we would very highly recommend the flat at Colossus.
I enjoyed my stay at the Colossus B&B very much. It was my first trip to the Isles of Scilly and the accommodation is ideally located to explore St Mary. After a little walk to the quay you can easily join one of the ships bringing you to the other islands. Carmen's delicious breakfast offering various choices, was a perfect basic for the tour-days. Carmen also gave a lot of helpful & interesting information about the Islands' history and support when needed and last not least a relaxed welcome feeling. I can highly recommend the Colossus.
My partner & I stayed at Colossus for a week's holiday on our first visit to the Isles of Scilly. Carmen & Todd made us feel very welcome. They run a lovely comfortable guesthouse, which also has self-catering facilities, only a short walk from the centre of Hugh Town. Carmen is a mine of useful information on the Isles of Scilly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for her. She helped to make my landmark birthday, which was on the day we arrived, special and she was exceptionally helpful when I needed to make a return trip to a hospital in Cornwall after having had a cycling accident on one of the Islands. The breakfasts were filling with lots of choice of food and were always a very friendly, relaxed time. We would highly recommend staying at here to anyone.
