The star castle lived up to everything we hoped it would be. We were picked up from the airport by the castle taxi. The driver was very helpful, refusing to let us carry our bags😄. All the staff were extremely helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The boatman that came round in the morning...

Stayed here for the Easter weekend. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the bed was supremely comfortable and the food amazing value for money. A first class hotel which is thoroughly recommended.

Our last review said it all. We loved the pick-up from the airport - our bags taken to our room while we checked in. The marvelous dinners and breakfasts - the very attentive service. A very comfortable room - but we have one small criticism, the size of the TV - it would be more suitable for a caravan. The...

A lovely old 16th century castle now a family run 4 star hotel. Stayed in an upper room in the castle itself though there are modern rooms in the grounds.Very well appointed and comfortable, though by nature of the building, there were a number of sloping ceilings.Emphasis was on a friendly, personal service. Menus included a predominance of fish dishes...

Enjoyed dinner in the castle dining room - so cosy at this time of year and the staff as welcoming and professional as ever. The food was really first class, enjoyed every morsel and an excellent New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to accompany it. No trip to the Isles of Sciily is complete without a visit to The Star Castle. We'll...

Have to confess this review is from a few years back but I still think of the Star Castle often. Flew from Exeter and were met by car at the airport by hotel staff. Quick transfer. Stayed in the garden rooms to the rear of the hotel. Stunning outside spaces and quirky bar. Restaurant is AMAZING. Consistently great food every...

Thank you to the wonderful staff for our stay. We were delighted to be fogbound for an extra 2 days! Fabulous food, excellent rooms and friendly staff. A perfect location for our break on the beautiful Isles of Scilly.

Absolutely brilliant Hotel and restaurant, the setting is fantastic, the staff couldn't be more obliging ( Cat should have her own TV show ! ), the food was probably some of the best we have ever had, what a way to spend my 60th birthday ! We will be back as soon as we can.
