The Isles of Scilly in October are full of interesting birds and lots of people dressed in green with tripods and long lenses enjoying them! And the Wheelhouse is a wonderful place to base yourself while you too get out and about and experience it all. Lovely walks, boat trips to the other islands, prehistoric tombs, the garrison fortifications -...

Third (or fourth) time in the Wheelhouse. Trust me, it gets better every time. The attention to detail is outstanding, the breakfast is to die for, the rooms are glorious, the staff are world class and the owners, Dan and Jen, well, surely 'nuff said. When J.C. returns for the second coming, he will stay here!!! One word sums it...

Although we have stayed at The Wheelhouse over a number of years this is our first review. Every year there seems to be improvements with only very modest increases in room rates. Until this year we had Room 4 (See website) but this year we upgraded to the very spacious Room 5 which is as good as a 5* Hotel....

Beautifully located at Porthcressa Beach and owners extremely helpful at all times, even as far as sending found car keys to our next location. Nothing too much trouble and staying here was a good start to our first trip to the Scillies.
