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 9th January 2011

We were blessed with a glorious Sunday this week, when it felt like it could almost be spring already... Then we had a severe weather warning with a force 8 or 9 blow through Monday just to remind us it's still winter with its horizontal rain, and cancellation of the Gry Maritha sailing (I don't blame them; there's no way you'd get me out there when it's like that!!). The sea was furious out there, and very white with quite a lot of big hills. That was short lived though, and we return to calm. The Gry is on her way to us now, so we may be able to get something to eat in the Co-op later!?

Here are some photographs I took on Sunday whilst out walking:
