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.

Wednesday 11th May 2011

It's been a while since I took a photo to post up. I was hoping to take some on Sunday when we went out to Tresco for the day; but I had to leave my phone at home as it was plugged into the computer for a software update which was taking an age to do, and we would've missed the boat!

Yesterday gave the perfect opportunity though on my way back into work for the evening. I saw a cloud formation that looked much like a big bird in the sky! It could be a Kingfisher or a Tern perhaps with it's pointed beak? See what you think?

Whilst there on Porthcressa Bank, I took another picture, as I liked the almost silhoutte effect, but sadly I must've had a bit of camera shake as it's slighly blurred :(
