We ate as a group of four. We were not staying at the hotel. We found the meal disappointing. At 8pm they had run out of the meat option. The skin on the cod was slimy rather than crisp. The portions were very small. We left hungry.There is a fixed menu for 2/3/4 courses. Have never seen rhubarb sorbet described... More

This is undoubtedly a unique and quirky place to stay. Steeped in history, it's an amazing location with spectacular views. That said, at almost £300 for a garden room, it's certainly 'top end' and has to be good to pitch in that price range. A few disappointments , 'garden' room was a bit of lawn / weeds near to the...

We were picked up at the airport by the hotel and driven through St Mary's to the Star Castle. It commands a high spot on the island (it was a previous fortress to help keep marauders at bay). Therefore, as you might imagine, the views are second to none. We were the first to check in and were quickly settled... More

As non-residents, we booked to have dinner in the restaurant at the Star Castle to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we are delighted that we did so. The service is what I would describe as "genuine" - in other words, friendly, attentive but not pretentious. We both had a four-course meal, and the food was excellent as was the choice... More

A wonderful few days on the Scilly Isles. The Star Castle is certainly a star. The food is delicious and the staff are exceptional. There are fantastic views from all round the hotel. Our room (garden room) was very spacious with a sitting room and very well equipped. Cannot find any fault and thoroughly recommend.

Stayed a few times and it is a beautiful place.the views are spectacular from the star. The staff are charming and they can't do enough for you. Food yum yum yum. Prices are reasonable, after all you are staying in the best accommodation on the Isle. A must stay when visiting the Isle.
