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.

November 2011

It's been a while since I've posted anything, so I thought I had better give a quick update with a few piccies for good measure.

The hotel is now closed for the winter season, and will re-open again on Monday 12th March 2012. Don't forget our March offer for 2012, of just £189 per person, for a 3 night break including dinner, room & breakfast. Any further, night's tariff will be held pro-rata at £63 per person, per night.

During this winter, there will be a few goings on in the hotel for decorating etc. There's always something to do! For example, as I type this, Shirley is busy painting the ladies cloakroom. Both the gents & the ladies have been re-papered, and are being painted a lighter, fresher colour. The gents is also having new flooring.
...Plenty of other things going on too, so the sooner I wrap up this post, the sooner and can get myself covered in paint!

Enough of my waffle.... here's some Scilly pics from this last week.
