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.

Precious Lives Appeal for Children's Hospice Southwest

On Saturday 16th October, the band that I'm in "Stir Crazy" played a gig for the very first time, and in aid of the charity: Precious Lives Appeal for the Children's Hospice Southwest who are in the process of starting up a new hospice just outside of St Austell. We managed to raise a sum of £308.00 for the charity which is pretty good going as there were a couple of other large events going on elsewhere on the same night; Gig Rowers Annual Dinner & Presentation Evening & a Charity Ball in Aid of the Vetinary Support Group.
It was an enjoyable evening albeit a little daunting for me as it was the first time I had ever played guitar in public. The first has got to be the worst as far as nerves go... so bring on the next performance!!
If I can find someone who took any photos, I will post one up!

***Update 22.11.10: A bit later than planned, but I've got a link to You Tube for one of the songs we performed - Marillion; Kayleigh***
