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.

Sunday 15th April 2012

This is the 2nd attempt with the new Blogger App. The 1st try published the photo a bit too big; so a tweak with the settings and hopefully this will turn out better!?

...A sunny day today on Scilly with a cool northerly breeze. Out of the wind though it was glorious and warm. Stunning colours from the sea & skies. Clear & bright with the sunshine gleaming off the sea.
Today's stroll was across Porthcressa Beach, along the coastal path past the allotments and up to Peninnis.
The mainland was clearly visible from up there.
The sheep have their lambs now, which are pretty cute to be fair. They can be seen from King Edward's Road.
The flowers are out up at Buzza Tower.
