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.

Dining Room - Re-Decorated & Re-Furnished 2011

I have now uploaded the photographs of the new look Dining Room for 2011. The walls have been re-papered with a lighter cream coloured wallpaper, and we now have all the new solid wood tables, and the leather dining chairs.
The layout of the dining room is slightly different now to that of previous years, as the chairs are slightly bigger, and require more space. The initial verdict from returning guests is that the chairs are a lot more comfortable, and the room feels a lot lighter. Thumbs up then!

There are a few more images in the Public Areas photo gallery on the right side of the page.
