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.

Our First German TripAdvisor Review!

“Kann das naechste Mal kaum erwarten....”

Was soll ich war RUNDHERUM einfach super!
5 Tage durften wir in diesem "Kleinod" von Hotel verbringen. Vom ersten Tag an haben wir uns willkommen und sehr wohl gefuehlt. Das Personal zuvorkommend und herzlich. Das Essen abwechslungsreich und excellent zubereitet. Zimmer und Bad sehr sehr sauber. Die Lage des Hotels ist wirklich zentral und trotzdem sehr ruhig.
Bitte von den "2 Sternen" nicht irritieren lassen, das Hotel haette fuer mich locker "4" verdient.
Es herrscht insgesamt ein sehr familiaeres Klima, dies wird wohl noch unterstuetzt durch die netten Abende, die man, wenn gewuenscht, in dem Salon mit Bar geniessen kann und somit jederzeit mit anderen Gaesten, hauptsaechlich Englaendern, in Kontakt kommt.
Spielesammlungen und eine kleine Bibliothek runden das Ganze ab.
Fuer uns war's einfach traumhaft und wir koennen unseren naechsten Scilly Urlaub kaum erwarten.....

***Rough Translation***

What can I say .... it was all around just great! 5 days we spent in this "jewel" of the hotel. From day one we felt very comfortable and welcome. The staff courteous and cordial. The food prepared varied and excellent. Room and bathroom very very clean. The hotel's location is really central but very quiet. Request of the "two stars" must irritate the hotel as would have earned for me "4". There is overall a very homely environment, this is probably supported by the nice evenings, which can, if desired, be enjoyed in the lounge with a bar and thus any time with other guests, mainly English, comes in contact. Games and small library collections round out the whole thing.
For us it was amazing and we can hardly wait for our next holiday ..... Scilly
