“Couldn't ask for more!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

From the moment we arrived early in the morning, Carol and Joe welcomed us and made our stay so comfortable. Value for money! Great location handy for the shops....good to browse when you come back to St Mary's after a day on the islands and good for grabbing last minute bits before heading for the quay/airport....and even though its right by the shops etc its very quiet. All the rooms are different but fantastic quality. We had room 5, a twin with massive bathroom, and room 2, a 6ft superking double that can be a twin with another huge bathroom. The rooms are so well kitted out! Fridge with chilled mineral water, glasses, bottle opener, bath and beach towels, robes, toiletries galore, well stocked tea tray......lots of little extras. The standard of décor and furnishings is as good as a good hotel. Spotless! Breakfast was great with a choice of juice plus fruit platter or fruit compote/yog or grapefruit followed by hot choices of full English or variations of it...plus lots of other tempting treats. You can come and go as you please.....without having to worry about keys. The roof terrace is a great spot for early morning/evening wind down before heading out. When you check out you can leave your bags there and they'll arrange for your luggage to be taken to the quay so you don't have to lug it down there. Carol and Joe are fantastic hosts..helpful, full of tips and info, always smiling and friendly. You couldn't do better anywhere else so look no further! My second visit and definitely not my last!

Room Tip: Room 2 is a massive superking double that can be a twin. 1st floor. Well kitted out with huge bathr...

We have just returned from a weekend in St Mary's, staying at the Freesia Guesthouse. Such a convenient location and what a lovely clean & friendly place. We were greeted by Joe, and had a twin room (No 5) at the top. The bathroom was bigger than our own and had all the toiletries and bath robes, even fresh flowers.The breakfast was fantastic (albeit a small dining room,which made getting to know other guests essential), but along with this you get to know where to go & what to do if it is your first time in the Islands. Do take advantage of the suitcase delivery service, for just £1.30 a bag you don't have to worry about it. If you do visit, this is the place to go, so close to other pubs restaurants & cafes.

I think you would struggle to find a better B&B on the islands. The rooms are very nice, tastefully decorated and very clean. The breakfast is superb and Carol and her son Joe are very welcoming, very friendly and very good hosts.

Room Tip: I had a look at all the rooms and they are all good, but perhaps the ones on the first floor are may...

We recommend the Freesia Guest house for its friendly welcome, central position, and comfortable rooms. In many towns the central position would be a problem ie street noise late at night - this is not a problem in Hugh town and the central location made it handy for shops, pub, and boats. When we arrived we were first guests of the day and were given the chance to choose one of the three rooms available at that time. I can say they are all comfortable, and have large bathrooms - we'd have been happy in any of them. Carole provides a friendly welcome and a good breakfast. We would highly recommend the Freesia to anyone

My daughter and I have just returned from 4 nights in this most lovely of guest houses. The welcome we received was second to none. Carole is quite simply the most charming of hosts and we felt at ease immediately! Our immaculate room, and indeed, the rest of the building is superbly appointed with great decorative taste. Furnishings are of a high quality and the towels are good and fluffy! The rooms are private and quiet and the decking area for guests to use is handy to sit out in for a cup of tea. Although you are only a hop and a skip from the beach and its gorgeous views.
Breakfast was lovely with such a wide and healthy selection, all beautifully presented. Something for all tastes and appetites. Close by there are some great places to eat and drink, all good quality in our experience!
Carole and her family embody the friendliness of the Scillies, and will help in every way they possibly can. You too will be beguiled.... !

Room Tip: Sea gulls may wake you up early. But in choosing to stay near the sea, that's your fault! I lik...
