Blog Details

We are a 2 star hotel with rooms situated throughout 4 floors. The hotel has no lift due to the grade 2 listed building status meaning we can't make alterations to install one. We will of course, help with luggage though.

Our food is traditional and cooked using fresh produce of fish, meats, vegetables & dairy sourced from Scilly & Cornwall where possible. Our style is not nouvelle cuisine or a fancy Michelin Star type restaurant.

Our experienced staff offer excellent & attentive service, far beyond the normal expectations for a 2 star rated hotel

Our swimming pool is 8 metres x 4 metres and so neither small, or Olympic size! An unusual extra facility compared to even many other hotels. Its size is governed by available space, and is covered in and heated.

Our rooms are comfortable & furnished to the same standard. All are en suite with either bath, shower or both, and some are compact, hence the special offer lower tariff for these.

The hotel is situated in the centre of Hugh Town, at the quieter side and is ideally positioned for easy access to the harbour for inter island boats to the inhabited islands of Tresco, Bryher, St Agnes & St Martins.

I try to post regular photographs of the islands, and you can see more of the hotel in the photo galleries on the right hand side of the page.

Sadly, Mrs King was elderly, with mobility issues and was accommodated on the 2nd floor, after booking through a travel agent, and being fully booked, we were unable to move her. We are a listed building and can't install a lift. We do, however have lower floor and ground floor rooms, which can be requested at the time of booking that are much more suitable for guests who struggle with stairs. If calling the the hotel direct, we always advise where the room is positioned, and what sort of en suite facilities are provided. This information is also passed on to all travel agents who book through us; to hopefully be relayed to the guest at the time of booking.

Grabbed a booking at the last minute having read positive reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Amazing value with five course meal that was surprisingly varied and extremely tasty. The staff really made our stay, going out of their way to make the kids feel at home and fufil our many needs! We would definately recomend a stay - affordable pampering!

We would love to confirm this hotel does offer very good value for money, dont be taken in by the other slightly more expensive hotels on St Marys, they are not as good as this one!

The friendly polite service from everyone working at the hotel could not be faulted from the cleaners to the hotel manager. Indeed during one evening meal my partner dropped her butter knife on the floor and this was taken away and replced with a clean one in the blink of an eye. This is the attention to detail that sets this hotel above it's competitors. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean.I have to follow a strict gluten- free diet and this was not only catered for, but they went out of their way to give me a selection of food I could eat and even purchase gluten-free bread for toast! I dont even get that at home!
