My partner and I had booked this hotel for our 'mini moon' as we both wanted to visit Scilly Isles for our first visit, we had a really good deal via a travel broker so we were very excited to be staying here. The staff are really friendly, attentive and hard working, and nothing is too much trouble. Our room overlooked the front gardens and had amazing views across the bay to Tresco, the room was good size and had coffee and tea making facilities, and luxury robes provided for guests, and the room was very modern and clean, bath was a little smaller than I'm used to, but adequate. Bed was a little on the hard side of comfortable. The hotel was quite noise free the week we stayed and the only noise was from the sea and the birds which was bliss. The hotel calls itself a Spa hotel, however there was no pool, no jacuzzi or sauna, only a massage experience was available, so as Spa.'s go not really a Spa hotel, which is a shame as with these additions it would be a great Spa Hotel. The Chef was good but lacked some imagination and variety and we would have liked to see more healthy options on the menu, no salads or lighter options available, and breakfast lacked variety also. There was little entertainment provided apart from a Quiz night and this again is something the hotel is missing. I do believe that with some improvements and thought this hotel could easily be five star, as at the moment it isn't, but it is still a good hotel and in a great location. I would return to the hotel and hopefully in time the hotel will find its marketplace and clientele. Having said all this we still had an amazing vacation and will come back again, thank you to all the staff and management for making our stay lovely.

What a beautiful location right on the beach at St Martins. The staff are so welcoming and the rooms are just perfect. The staff are very informative and helpful. The tea and coffee making facilities are excellent and the luxurious towelling robes provided are great. The food is delicious with locally produced ingredients. I would recommend the fish gratin and the knickerbocker glory. The happy hour cocktails 2 for 1 are lovely, especially the St Martins Crush. The boats to other islands stop right outside the hotel pier so its perfect for exploring the Scilly Islands. This really is a wonderful hotel perfectly located for walking and island hopping. I would highly recommend a visit here. St Martins is a very beautiful island to visit.

Room Tip: the rooms have all amenities

We popped by for a light lunch and drinks - but would love to return and stay one day (to use the spa and pool). Staff were lovely and helpful, views were spectacular and we had the whole outside terrace area to ourselves! The food was good although they were out of crab!

Please visit the hotel for the views alone! We had lunch but had to wait for various components as the young staff were a little out of their depth. The reception staff, however were knowledgeable and very helpful. When we were eventually able to eat, the food was fine. The hotel, i think, is trying hard to find a niche in the market as it appears so different to other resorts in the Karma Group. St. Martins is our favourite Island so we will be back and hope next time the management has got its act together.

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at the hotel and found the accommodation and views from the room wonderful. The staff were all welcoming and Scott looked after us extremely well from the point of booking and during our stay. St. Martins is a beautiful island and this hotel is well appointed for guests wanting to take advantage of the many walks, easy access to a stunning beach and the quay for boat trips to other islands. We will certainly return.
