“An absolutely delightful, family-run hotel with a magical setting (a 16thC star-shaped castle) and a truly warm atmosphere. While never forgetting its core clientele of walkers, retired couples and families, the hotel's recent refurbishment will appeal to all, with charming bedrooms and two excellent restaurants. Owner Robert Francis has two passions: lobster fishing and wine and you will enjoy the fruits of both.”

“The Star Castle is an hotel with an ambience as different as the islands themselves. Built in the form of an eight-pointed star and surrounded by a dry moat and broad ramparts, the building speaks of legend, history and intrigue. The castle and the staff who work within its walls possess an integrity and sense of purpose befitting a location with such an illustrious past.
Rooms within the castle have been elegantly refurbished whilst retaining the character of the original rooms.
There is a choice of accommodation at the hotel. Garden rooms and suites are adjacent to the castle in the grounds. Some guest rooms and suites have sea or harbour views.
Dining at the Castle is a delight. Guests have the choice of two award-winning restaurants featuring fresh locally caught sea food, local produce and vegetables from our own kitchen garden. Open during the summer months and adorned by a magnificent vine, the Conservatory restaurant is light and airy. It has the same convivial atmosphere as the Castle restaurant, but specialises in seafood and offers a delightfully alternative dining experience.”
