We are both seasoned travellers to St Mary's Isles of Scilly and have stayed at various establishments . However, we were so delighted with our stay at Serica Glandore that we booked for 2015. A well appointed double bedroom apparent which includes all you need for a perfect stay. It was delight to return each day after exploring the beautiful islands. The kitchen is well equipped with all you need for your dinning requirements. The lounge area is comfortable with the added bonus of spectacular views across Porthloo Beach and beyond towards other islands. Balcony is just perfect for that early morning coffee. Glandore is just short walk along a coastal footpath to Hugh Town's restaurants, pubs and the pier for ferries to off islands. The owners Steve and Lois are always on available with helpful advice and information. We are both looking forward to our return. more

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review of our 'Serica' apartment which we are sure will be helpful to prospective guests. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday with us and look forward to welcoming you back this coming summer. Best wishes, Stephen and Lois more

Serica, a well-appointed one bedroom apartment at Glandore, St. Mary's, with wonderful views overlooking Porthloo Beach, has been our holiday destination for nine years. Always a delight to return to after a day spent exploring the Isles. Every effort is made by the owners, Steve and Lois Morris (Steve is one of the Island's artists), to make their guests welcome, and Steve's art gallery is an added attraction. more

Dear Christopher, Thank you for your kind review of 'Serica' apartment. We look forward to welcoming you back again next spring. Lois and Steve more
