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.

Isles of Scilly - Scillies - Scilly Isles - Scilly

The Isles of Scilly get called by varying titles. In the media, on television programmes and in newspapers & magazines, we hear the islands often being referred to as the Scilly Isles or the Scillies.
The official title is of course the Isles of Scilly, but people can be forgiven for mis-titling due to the media.
Old maps dating back from a few centuries ago often title the islands as the Scilly Isles. I love looking at old maps of the islands. You see varying shapes & sizes of the islands and their coastlines as the more primitive forms of cartography were used to map the area. The more rugged maps & charts are well worth a look if you get the chance.
