We stayed here during our holiday on the Isles and we certainly not disappointed. The location was excellent, right in the town centre and a short walk from all the local amenities- the Co-op, the tourist information centre but especially the pubs! The room was lovely & very comfy bed. Ben & Kirsty were lovely & couldn't be more helpful & friendly. The cup of coffee after our journey over by boat was very welcoming! We had a fantastic stay and will certainly return. I can understand why people go back year on year. Thanks to both Ben & Kirsty for a lovely stay.

We stayed here for a week & had a fantastic holiday (dispite the fact that the weather eventually let us down). Ben & Kirsty were great host's and made us feel very welcome. We are hoping to go back again in a few years.

As first timers to the island we really fell on our feet booking in here. Ben and Kirsty are great hosts and made us and our little dog feel really welcome. The cottage is perfectly located in the centre of Hugh Town and has tonnes of character. Ben and Kirsty also run the cafe next door which is great for a pot of coffee - you can also sit outside evergreen and soak in the delights of island life. Room was cosy and clean, and the breakfast hearty - each morning you also get a visit from one of the locals to tell you what off island trips are running that day. All in all a magical stay - we'll be back! Many Thanks.

This was our first visit to the Isles of Scilly and were made very welcome by Ben and Kirsty, nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The Evergreen is located in the centre of the town making it very convenient for local amenities and boat trips. Rooms were very comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfasts were superb, with plenty of choice and served in a quick and efficient manner. We would certainly return and would highly recommend this friendly guest house.

The Evergreen Cottage Guesthouse is located in the centre of town which on the one hand is very convenient, especially for first-timers on St Mary's, but on the other it's not the peaceful haven I expected. It's an old building so expect low ceilings and small rooms throughout, however checkout the delightful photos in the guestbook showing the cottage in the early 20th Century. Downstairs is a small lounge for general use, unfortunately the other room is closed to guests except for breakfast, so it can be a bit cosy if there are more than 4 people in the lounge! There is a small yard at the front which has two tables and seating so you can enjoy the sunshine in the morning, by afternoon it's shady and cool. There is a bus stop near the cottage to catch buses around St Mary's, and also quite a surprising amount of traffic.The bedrooms, 5 in total, are all on the 1st floor. They're accessed by a stairs up the centre of the house, watch the low beam at the bottom, it caught both of us out more than once! Our room was ensuite, and quite small. It was difficult for both of us to move around the room at the same time. The toilet in the ensuite had an annoying habit of getting stuck whilst the cistern refilled, and the lighting was quite poor. Unfortunately we were disturbed by youths shouting and fighting in the street during the night and also by loud snoring from an adjacent room. Our Hosts were friendly and knowledgable about the Isles, they were very relaxed and unobtrusive. Breakfast was very adequate including home-grown tomatoes, apples and pears. Its only a 10 min walk to the boats in the morning and one of the boat companies sends a rep in during breakfast to explain which trips are available. On the way to the harbour you pass the Co-op, cash point and chemist; pretty much all you need for the necessities. There is an excellent fish restaurant opposite called The Galley, I highly recommend it.
