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!

About
Description
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, More 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. Less
