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.

Sunday 10th October 2010 - 10.10.10

This Sunday saw a time & date of 10:10:10 on 10.10.10. It was a hazy sort of day with the sun breaking through late afternoon. Still warm enough though, so I took a trip to Tresco for my day off, with the family to see a good friend who's birthday it was.
A few more birdwatchers around searching for the rarities on their migration routes to warmer climes for the winter. The boat was probably 75% birdwatchers on the way back, comparing notes and showing each other photos taken on cameras with some serious lenses going on! It seemed like they had a constructive day. Maybe a few more birds will help bring in more visitors to the islands to help boost the late season. We now have a few of our regular birdwatching guests in the hotel now.
