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.

1st July 2011 - About Time For Some Photos!!

Well, it's now July 1st (Exactly Mid Season)... and the nights are now drawing in. What?! More like summer is well & truly here!!! The sun has been beaming down strong, giving us glorious settled weather with beautiful blue skies; Oh Yes, this is Scilly!! :)
Apologies for the lack of Scilly photos of late. It's been a tad busy this last month, but I took one of the St Agnes Lighthouse on my day off on Sunday 26th June:

...And I couldn't resist popping over the road this morning from the Hotel to take a couple of pictures of the harbour: Friday 1st July 2012:

Beautiful! We can cope with this for another couple of months I reckon!
