Positioned in Hugh Town on St Mary's, Tregarthen's sits amidst a spectacular setting at the water's edge with far-reaching views across to neighbouring islands. A few minutes' walk will take you to the bustling historic quay, the hub for passenger boats to the off-islands. These run twice daily alongside day trips - wildlife safaris and tours of the uninhabited islands in a glass-bottomed boat. This is a wonderful part of St Mary's to explore with its historic granite buildings and flourishing sub-tropical gardens.

Traditional in style, Tregarthen's is designed around its breathtaking sea vistas, featuring floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the conservatory lounge leading onto the garden terrace, bringing the outdoors in. The hotel was founded in 1849 by Captain Frank Tregarthen, whose living quarters remain at the heart of the building. With history at the core, interiors have been kept neutral, allowing the views to do the talking with some colour pops of blue and yellow keeping décor fresh, drawing on the coastal surroundings.


Tregarthen's staff offer the warmest of welcomes, making you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The team are brilliantly knowledgeable about the islands, offering advice and tips on how best to plan your stay. For days when you feel like lounging, room service is available upon request and there's a handy laundry service provided should you need it.
