Best hotels in The Isles of Scilly from the Direct Hotel Online

Wildlife paradise with astounding scenery

Unlike any other part of the UK, the Isles of Scilly have an exotic feel about them even though they’re just a short ferry or helicopter ride from Cornwall. Beautiful sandy beaches and blue seas make it perfect for a relaxing hotel break and there’s plenty to do. DHO has two recommended luxury hotels on the islands. Hell Bay Hotel on Bryher, the smallest and southernmost of the inhabited Scilly Isles, and Star Castle, a star-shaped Tudor fortress on St Mary’s.

See the islands’ diverse bird and wildlife. Spot seals on the Eastern Isles and visit Norrard Rocks and Annet for the birdlife and colonies of puffins in the early summer. The world-famous horticultural paradise Tresco Abbey Gardens is home to more than 20,000 exotic species, flourishing in the warmer climate of the Isles of Scilly. Explore castles, fortresses and interesting archaeology, take a boat trip or walking tour, sample fresh local produce – the Isles of Scilly is a great holiday destination.
