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.

Winter Weather?!? January 17th 2010

Well, it's January, but it almost feels like springtime here in Scilly! The sun has felt really warm on my face today whilst out for an afternoon walk around the Garrison. It's certainly a far cry from the last couple of week's weather. Although we had no snow like the rest of the country, we had iced over puddles and frosts which is a rare sight for Scilly.
Not long until the hotel re-opens on the 8th February. Just 3 weeks tomorrow! Get booked up now for an early spring break. Hopefully the weather will be as good as the last couple of days?!
In the mean time, here's a couple of pictures taken today

Tuesday 5th January 2010

Well, whilst most of the country seems to be struggling under the weight of the snow, we have none! It's been pretty cold, and for Scilly standards even more so, with ice forming on standing water, and the odd pipe freezing.
There is a forecast of snow tonight though, so we might wake up to a slightly white scene?! If it does, I shall be sure to take some pictures!
