Colossus is a detached bungalow with garden overlooking the lower moors and situated in a quiet residential cul-de-sac. Only a 5-7 minute pleasant walk with splendid views brings you to Hugh Town, where you will find shops, restaurants, pubs and three beaches and lastly the harbour - where you can hop on the daily boats to the off-islands. Five minutes in the other directions you will find Old Town and coastal walks.We have B&B rooms as well as a self catering flat.

We stayed at the Colossus B & B in St Mary’s. The en suite room was absolutely spotlessly clean. One of us had the full English breakfast and the other one had the Continental breakfast, and they were both really delicious and of excellent quality. Carmen, the proprietor, was

Our flights from and to Exeter were cancelled in both directions - Skybus forgot to tell anybody that their necessary accommodation costs for the delay would be paid by them and most people who were delayed still don't know but have paid quite high prices for last minute

Its unfortunate that your flights had problems. Transport to these remote islands can suffer problems on occasions and I hope the IOS Steamship Company have heard your views on this. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

A great place to base yourself in the Isles of Scilly. Family run and friendly. Don't forget to tap into Carmen"s local knowledge of where and when to visit locations and when you leave make sure you stock up on the delicious home made chocolate

Thank you for your review. I always try to help visitors new to Scilly as I am a locally born Scillonian and have spent a lot of time visiting each of the inhabited and uninhabited islands in our boat. Best Wishes Carmen

We stayed at the Colossus for five days. Carmen was very friendly and always provided hints where to go on the islands. Our room was fully equipped, we didn't miss anything. By chance we saw Carmen and her husband on the telly just a few weeks before we visited (search for "Die

Hello to both of you. Thank you for your kind review. It was strange that you saw us on TV in Germany before arriving to us. It was a series on the Queen's Islands. We were asked to be on it - me for my side business Scilly Maid Chocolate and Todd with his scuba diving. We hope to welcome you back to Scilly another time. Best Wishes Carmen

Hello Caroline, I am very sorry but there is no transport to or from the islands on a Sunday - please amend your booking through the third party you booked through to depart a day earlier or later and then you can fly from Lands End or Newquay. You can find my email and website if you google Colossus B&B. If I can be of any further help please email me. We look forward to welcoming you in November. Regards Carmen

Is a room for 2 available for 3 nights june 8 till 11?
"Both rooms very clean & bright en-suite facilities a bonus for us."
"Has choice of B&B or self catering"
"The double with separate (not shared) bathroom was more than adequate, but the ensuite was a bit larger, might try the self catering next time. "
"Room with ensuite is best as only other there is separate bathroom across corridor"
"Our room was snug for the 2 of us, but clean. Could have done with more positive ideas about seeing the isles and less ordering about in the place."
