When we go to the Island of St Marys again the Colossus will be our first choice for accommodation. The setting was ideal, the room was perfect and the hostess,Carmen, was delightful. I would certainly recommend this B&B on this wonderful Island.

Carmen is really friendly and helpful, and her B&B is very comfortable and well presented. I was doing the Scilly Swim Challenge and Carmen was very understanding of our timetable for coming in and going out. A lovely place to stay, thank you!

The Scilly Swim Challenge is an amazing challenge for everyone. Well done to you as the sea wasn't the calmest. It would be lovely to welcome you back next year for the event again or any other time. Take care Carmen

Following our previous July visit, we took Carmens advice to visit earlier. This years June visit was indeed better for flora & fauna. The unexpected bonus was what turned out to be the warmest, dryest two weeks of 2017! It was also worth paying a...More

Sorry, we have a Jack Russell so we don't take dogs I'm afraid. Thank you for your interest in our B&B. Please call me on 01720 423361 if you decide to come without your dog. Regards Carmen
