We visited St Mary's for a long weekend as we were attending a wedding on the island. we stayed at St Mary's Hall and found it very comfortable, convenient for the town and full of friendly and helpful staff. I would certainly recommend it.

This is a lovely hotel, it has a great atmosphere, elegance without pretentiousness.
We stayed four nights and had a lovely time.
I would only mark it down for one night which I guess was the chefs night off when the standard of the food seemed to drop.
However I will let them off on this as this is a place you really would recommend to your friends

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at St Mary's Hall Hotel in the Scilly Isles and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. From the time we alighted from the Scillonian 111 the service was first class. Our bags were delivered to the hotel within half an hour and on our return journey they were efficiently dispatched for our trip back to Penzance. Roger, the Deputy Manager, was at all times attentive and informative always ready to answer our queries whether they related to the hotel itself or to the Islands. He was in fact a font of knowledge who clearly interacted well with his guests. The hotel staff were friendly and the rooms were immaculately clean. We ate in the restaurant every evening and, like some other reviewers, we have eaten in restaurants all over the world. This one was able to hold its own with any of those!! The hotel has a cosy atmosphere reflecting the private home it once was. There were two lovely sitting rooms available to guests which retained the quality of being in someone's home as well as the more modern bar. A big thank you to Roger and his team who made this, our first visit to the Scilly Isles ( along with the glorious weather!) such a memorable trip. Lesley and Mike Jones, Cardiff

Room Tip: I understand that the hotel has some suites but we had a standard double which was perfectly functional and comfortable for our needs.

Over in St Mary's for the Gig weekend with my family. Lucky to get the last hotel room on the island at short notice so very pleased with that and the communication between the hotel and the tourist board who gave us the heads up on the accommodation. Paid over £500 for two nights in a family room which was very comfortable but this is the Gig weekend and its usual for the islands to put their prices up because the islands are full and visitors do not have any other options. Very good location and the family rooms on the ground floor have access to a small decking area where you can sit and rear door access which is useful for sand covered kids and kit. Breakfast menu was very good and the kids eat free. The one evening meal we had was poor and as a hotel guest/resident you have no guarantee that you will get a table in the restaurant. The hotel will not ensure all guests have a table because of the demand for meals in the evenings by the thousands of visitors who have come for the Gig weekend and they will be paying more than the discounted rate offered to guests. This was not really an issue because it is a 3 start hotel and something has to give.Very personable staff and Derek the Deputy Manager was very helpful and pleasant until he forgot the service industry mantra of "the customer is always right". There was a misunderstanding on what time our luggage would be collected for the early boat. Rather than accept that it was a misunderstanding he went into confrontation mode and proceeded to argue the toss about who said what. I travel the world on business and to some pretty interesting places and I have never been spoken to in recent years by a member of a hotel management team the way Derek spoke to me. Its top rate hotel prices but you do no get the top rate hotel experience. That's why my title includes the phrase "island attitude" because you scratch through the superficial 'friendly approach' and you get the island mentality coming out. They call anyone not from the islands "FMLs" (you work it out - the last two letters refer to the word Mainlander) we have a saying as well, "FIs". This didn't spoil our trip, we had a fantastic weekend but Derek is the reason why the St Mary's Hall Hotel will not be getting our business again, that and the dinner/guest policy.

Room Tip: Ground floor family room with decking area
