Competition

THE STAR CASTLE, St Mary’s, Scilly Isles is this month’s prizegiver. With epic views across to Tresco and Bryher, this historic 16th century castle hotel welcomes guests with excellent seafood, comfortable bedrooms and friendly staff. Guests enjoy island-hopping, swimming with seals and a scenic golf course said to be the loveliest in the UK. The old stone-walled dungeon is now a bar and some of the bedrooms are in the original 16th century fortification built in the age of Sir Francis Drake.

All you need to do to win this handsome prize of two night’s B&B for two at the Star Castle is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.

Andrew Wardrop from London is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner bed and breakfast for two at THE LYGON ARMS, Broadway, Worcestershire. An Elizabethan coaching inn with roots in the 13th century, it has been restored to its historic glory by new owners. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton feature in the guestbook though not earlier guests Charles I and Oliver Cromwell. There is a beautiful landscaped terraced garden. Ales Maurer’s modern British menus include such dishes as herb crust lamb canon. You can dine in the wine bar (panini, pasta, pizzette), in cosy lounges or the stunning Great Hall, with its barrel ceiling, huge fireplace and minstrels’ gallery.
