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 Inseln der Queen")

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

Lovely bungalow and very hospitable host nothing too much trouble. Lovely cooked breakfast and able to walk into the Town for an evening meal. Suitcase pick up service from the accommodation to the ferry terminal for a very small fee.

Excellent family B+B business with a self catering apartment upstairs. Very friendly welcome. Near to shops, harbour, church and amenities. My daughter and I had a marvellous week visiting all populated islands. Cooking, cleaning and washing facilities all first class. Highly recommended. This was our second visit - first in 2012 and now 2017.

A very pleasant and comfortable stay in a lovely quiet Bed and Breakfast just outside the main town of St Marys. Easy walking round the Island, close to town and the harbour for all the boat trips and bus tour. A short walk the other way to the golf buggy and cycle hire too. Exceptionally warm and calm when we were in the Scilly's making it a fabulous stay.
