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.

Stride For Life - Sunday 22nd July 2012

Stride for Life in aid of Cancer Research.

The weather was absolutely scorching out there!

I'm pleased to say my walk was completed 47mins 35secs (Official time).
I was really chuffed to be the 1st walker over the finish line! (I don't do running!!)
My position was 28th out of 71.
It's further than the planned 5km; according to my gps it's 7.9km, but it had a little excitable moment through town (probably the buildings in the way), and has added around 1.5km. So I reckon it's about 6.5km in total.

Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me. Once I've got my final total I will post the result... It's got to be over £100 though which I'm really pleased about as I was aiming for at least £50.
