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.

Nicola Lawson Art - Acrylics of Scilly

This is basically a blatant free advertisement for my wife's art! She has been busy over the last few months painting ready for the 2011 season. Her art is now being displayed at the Boatshed Restaurant down on Porthmellon.
It's all new and exciting for Nic as she's only been painting for a year, and her work has been improving with each and every painting.
I've set up a blog for her to show off her paintings to the world. Please do check it out and watch her further progress as we update the site ...And don't forget to ask me at the hotel if you are interested in any ;)
I've put a link in my link list also on the right side of the page. Otherwise, copy & paste this into your address bar)

Here are a few samples of Nic's work:
