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.

Saturday 30th April 2011 - Gig Championship Weekend

The 2011 World Pilot Gig Championship Weekend is upon us and in full swing! We have quite a few gig rowers staying with us at the hotel this year from various parts of Cornwall.

The weather forecast for the Gig Championship weekend has been bad, but today I think they have got away with it as it has stayed dry, although the winds picked up this afternoon from the east. It could've been a lot worse as last night we had an almighty thunder storm at 2am with lots of super bright lightning and loud thunder and a torrential downpour to go with it! Lets hope the forcast for tomorrow's rain is incorrect for the finals.

Here is a photograph of the gigs all lined up on Town Beach this afternoon. The picture is courtesy of Martin Hall who works in the Coop. He managed to get a good view from the back of the shop on his break.
