Having been to St Mary's before I knew that being sat outside Star Castle in the evening allows you to see amazing sunsets, so I had decided that I was going to take my girlfriend here for dinner before popping the question. We had a table in the Conservatory which we found just about after going in the entrance of... More

We recently got married in St Mary's and as there were only 4 of us we didn't book anywhere to have a meal on the evening of our wedding. We looked at several options on the island and decided on the Star Castle dining room, and are so pleased we did.We had the 4 course option for dinner and all... More

Good food, service and facilities in this comfortable hotel in High Town. Breakfast was good, as was our evening meal in the airy and bright conservatory restaurant. Seems very expensive for what is on offer though so offers poor value for money

We had a wonderful week at the Star Castle. The garden room was delightful, the service was first class and the food was just brilliant. There are 2 restaurants with the Conservatory being mainly fish based, its a wonderful light room dining under the vine. Transport is provided to and from the airport and there is a bespoke daily boat... More

We ate in the Dining Room, The menu here is changed daily and is excellent. (Note. The Conservatory Restaurant is also good and has more fish on the menu). The wine list is extensive although it contained no Merlot but when the owners locally produced Pinot Noir is available why would you ask for anything else. The food is superb... More

Decided to have lunch immediately on arriving in the Scilly Isles and before going for a walk round the Garrison. Initially went down to the Dungeon Bar but barman suggested eating on the battlements. Had simple Burger and Chips but it was cooked to perfection, beer was also very acceptable. Surprising very tame young thrush and sparrows, but at least... More

It's stating the obvious, but this is an old castle. As such, it has castle type features, such as very thick walls, sloping floors and small rooms. We loved it! The owners have cleverly combined and used the castle features without making the mistake of falling into kitsch. The approach through the main gate and along what feels like a... More

The conservatory restaurant at the Star Castle has some amazing fish and seafood choices in a lovely setting with grape vines weaving overhead and views of the night sky.
