A unique hotel in a stunning location
Built in 1593 for the defence of the Isles of Scilly, this Elizabethan castle is within a wall 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 decor is a mix of rich traditional 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 Castle dining room with exposed beams and an open fire and the vine-clad Conservatory, open in summer which is light and airy, which has 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!
There is an indoor heated pool and the hotel is set in four acres of secluded gardens. A perfect hotel for lovers of nostalgia and history with top class service and a great location.
Prices start at £522 per person sharing a Garden Double/Twin room on half board for three nights with flights from Land's End to St Mary's
