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.

Saturday Afternoon Wanderings

Saturday 14th July 2012

Most of today's pictures are of Old Town & Peninnis area. I did walk round from Porthmellon, Pump Road, Parting Carn direction first.

The first picture was taken on Pump Road of a Horse in a field:

Old Town Bay had quite a few sunbathers this afternoon. It was nice and sheltered from the stiff breeze today:

Along the path to the Old Town Church there is a seat which is made out of the bow section of the an old tripper boat. If I remember rightly, it is from the Buccaneer:

Further along the path up to Peninnis, the trees create a tunnel like effect. The coastal erosion is getting quite bad on this section, so if you don't fancy running the gauntlet, you can take the track through the adjacent field:

This picture is taken from King Edward's Road looking towards St Agnes:

The last picture is taken from Buzza looking across the harbour towards Samson & Bryher:
