This place is vastly over priced, the rooms are cramped and noisy, you here every door slam in the 'castle' and we could hear the people on the floor above us walk around. For nearly £300 a night you should have reliable wifi in your room, not have to sit by the door just to get a signal, to blame... More

We had dinner in the star castle dining room and it was lovely. We were initially worried that it would be pretentious but that was not the case the staff were attentive but not overbearing and were really lovely with our 9 year old daughter who ate from the main menu. They helped us with our wine selection which was... More

A lovely experience alas book early to get a castle room within the castle. But the garden rooms are so comfortable so don't be disappointed. The restaurant food is wonderful. A very good experience all round. Enjoy and relax. Nice swimming pool too. (Beware there is a hill so get yourselves a lift from the hotel they have there own... More

We stayed at the Star Castle Hotel in May for the first time in one of the garden rooms overlooking the harbour. Very clean and comfortable, with a more modern feel, with a small decking terrace which, had the weather been great, would have been a fabulous place to sit and relax. You can either eat in the main restaurant... More

Sitting above Hugh Town this beautifully converted Tudor Castle has stunning views of the Isles and way beyond to the Bishops Rock. Shimmering seas and blue skies greeted us and life became a fairy tale. Our room was at the top of the castle where we had superb views of Tresco and Bryher. Friendly helpful staff looked after our needs.... More

We booked in advance of arriving at our accommodation on the other side of the island on the basis of not finding any suitable alternative for a good dinner. We did the same with Juliette's but cancelled after one visit due to poor food and service and finding The Galley. Star Castle conservatory great for tasty well presented food and... More

Right from walking through the castle entrance you are in for a treat! In one week we have come back 3 times as you cannot beat it on st.marys. The food, especially the fish is out of this world, however it is the people that really make it. Martin in the dungeon bar, is a real showman creating a great... More

We got married here last month. Fantastic day - and venue - made very special by the staff there - especially Angie who was our wedding planner. Love the island and the general vibe. Very highly recommended.

The Castle Restaurant, as the name suggests, is located inside the walls of the castle, built in the 1550’s. We did our homework and came to the conclusion that that this was probably the best place to eat on the islands. Diners can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the cosy Dungeon bar. There are two restaurants within the castle walls,... More

I stayed here for one night and am glad I can say i've stayed in the castle. Although there weren't any views from the bedroom window in the room i had, the view from out the front of the hotel is stunning back down over the harbour. The reception staff were really lovely, very helpful and chatty and organised for... More
