Stay at this handsomely restored townhouse hotel on St Mary's - the largest of the inhabited islands that form part of the Scillies archipelago. The hotel, originally built by Count Leon de Ferrari just before the Second World War, offers prime position for exploring the islands, close to Hugh Town and the harbour. It's a welcoming base that is both dog and family friendly with a selection of rooms and suites, a flourishing Mediterranean garden and a recently refurbished steak house-style restaurant with an open kitchen, serving local and sustainable dishes that showcase the finest island produce. Guests are invited to relax and enjoy contemporary comfort within a traditional setting with friendly staff and incredible attention to the finer details.



The added adventure - travelling to the islands in a tiny plane from Land's End - offers an exhilarating 20-minute experience with spectacular aerial views of the archipelago.

The hotel is only a 5-minute walk from Porthcressa beach, while Hugh Street a little further away is a bustling shopping district.
By plane: Skybus flies to St Mary's from Newquay (30 minutes), Exeter (1 hour) or Lands End (15 minutes). The hotel is a 5-minute drive from the airport. Free parking available.
By boat: the Scillionian III Passenger Ferry departs from Penzance (2 hours 45 minutes). The hotel is a 5-minute drive (10 minutes' walk) from the terminal.

The ground-floor suites offer space to sprawl out, with the luxury of coming and going freely, whilst there's an air of opulence to the Count Leon rooms with their elegant furnishings and balcony views.

Food & Drink

It was great to watch the chefs prepare fresh island produce through the 'window view', adding an exciting and interactive element to the evening. You can't beat the locally caught lobster from island fisherman, Neil Jenkins, and for meat-lovers, the Gloucester rib-eye steak with hickory smoked-plum tomato and crispy onions - cooked to perfection on the American-style broiler.

The Hall: relaxed dining and bar, grill restaurant. Local produce, specialising in steaks. Open daily for dinner and drinks, Mon-Sat for afternoon tea.
