My husband and I spent six nights at Greenlaws, and everything was perfect. It’s a gem of a place, away from the busy main town, so we had a wonderful 15 minute walk down to the Quay to begin and end each day. Ian and Heather are the perfect hosts; full of interesting facts about the islands and things to... More

The Greenlaws Guest House is in a lovely setting on the shores of a small sandy bay, 5 minutes walk from the Airport and about 10 minutes walk from the town with all the restaurants and shops. The owners were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble including an unexpected full English breakfast 45 minutes before breakfast... More

Fantastic little guest house, with clean comfortable beds (partner has had spinal surgery and no complaints!) and equipped with the usual tea/coffee making facilities, ensuite etc. Location is perfect; beautiful and peaceful and only a short walk from the much busier Hugh Town. Ian is a top bloke, made us feel welcome without intrusiveness, and being first timers to Scilly... More

Our stay was totally unplanned,an extra day added unexpectedly to our holiday on Scilly owing to our Skybus flight being cancelled because of bad weather. The Tourist Information Bureau on Porthcressa were very helpful, told us Greenlaws had a vacancy for one night, and we were just pleased not to have to sleep on the beach! But when we arrived...
