“Beautiful Island Accommodation”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is one of the best B&Bs we have had the pleasure of staying in.Scenic location,convenient for the town and amenities and 10 minutes walk from the ferry port.Sonia was a wonderful host and immediately made you feel at home,giving us all the relevant information and details about the Islands.The room was spacious,light and airy with a nice en-suite.The full English breakfast was supurb,with fresh eggs straight from Sonias free range chickens.We would recommend the social club nearby,with a £5 temporary membership will give you a hearty selection menu with reduced prices on food and drink. We visited all the Islands and found them all stunning,with outstanding beaches, glorious coastline and crystal clear waters.You can have an enjoyable walk and get around each island in a day.St Marys having a fabulous golf course. As we enjoy walking this was a perfect week, we rarely go back to the same place twice,as we like to see new places, but without doubt we will be back!

Room Tip: 2 rooms, on top floor.both identical.extremely nice and peaceful

Just returned from our first visit to the Scilly Isles and could not have stayed at a better place. Very spacious and immaculate room, Sonia was a wonderful hostess, had the answer to anything we asked for, the food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. We will return.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday at Santamana. Lovely spacious room furnished in Scandinavian style with comfy armchairs by the window to enjoy the view over the bay. Our hostess Sonia was kind, friendly and efficient, making sure that our holiday was memorable. The house is beautiful, food good, and we felt that we couldn't have made a better choice. The islands with their clear turquoise waters white sandy beaches and tropical plants are just stunning. Highly recommend the trips to the outer islands, in all a truly memorable holiday made even more special by our kindly hostess, who allowed us a fascinating glimpse into the workings of island life. The only caution where Santaman is concerned is the very steep access for those who are not so fit. We travelled on Scillonian III and stayed the night at Chy an Gof in Penzance at either end of our stay, which is only about 200 yards from the ferry, and where our car was also looked after whilst we were away.

I stayed with Sonia and James last September while on a birding trip on the islands. They make you feel so at home the minute you arrive. I was there during the Rugby world cup and the family joined me to watch the Irish team's morning match, how nice is that! Sonia makes a lovely fresh porridge with honey for those who want a break from the full-fry.

One point for less mobile travellers, the road and drive-way to the house are steep, however taxis can make it up there! In my case it didn't seem so steep after a week walking on the islands and my fitness improved!

Great place, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and I hope to be back some day!

Sonia knows all about the goings on on the islands and you will soon be involved too! A lovely welcome and beautiful locally sourced breakfast. Lovely views - probably the best B&B in the world!

With a warm welcome from Sonia, we knew we had found a gem of a B&B in St Mary's. Lovely, spacious room and gorgeous breakfasts with as locally sourced eggs you could get. We'll be back, and we'll be recommending it to our friends.

This is not just a B&B it is home from home. Having visited the scillies some 24 times and stayed at Santamana every year since it opened I can confidently say you will not find a warmer welcome or a better B&B on the islands. For us a trip to Santamana is not about staying in a B&B but more about returning to stay with friends.
