A unique hotel in a stunning location 

Built in 1593 for the defence of the Isles of Scilly, this Elizabethan castle is in the form of an eight-pointed star. Surrounded by a dry moat, it’s a unique property that stands on Garrison Hill, a short stroll from town.
38 ensuite rooms many with seaview, some located in the castle and other garden rooms are outside the wall, close to the indoor pool. Room décor is a mix of rich raditional and contemporary. All rooms have TV, coffee making facilities, hairdryer, dressing gowns and Wi-fi access.
Throughout the hotel there are historic paintings, seafaring memorabilia and cosy alcoves. Two restaurants, the atmospheric award winning Castle dining room with exposed beams and an open fire and the vine-clad Conservatory, open in summer which is light and airy with fabulous views and specialises in local seafood dishes.
The Dungeon Bar was indeed a dungeon where prisoners languished 400 years ago.
Today, there are exposed stone walls and old military paraphernalia. Scillonian real ale is served here!
Other facilities include an indoor heated pool, a tennis court and guest relations can easily organise golf at the nearby course.
A perfect hotel for lovers of nostalgia and history with top class service and a great ocation set in four acres of secluded gardens.
