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.

UPDATED!! Total Raised From My Stride For Life Sponsorship

The Stride for Life event in aid of Cancer Research was a real success, and I now have my final total (Just waiting for a couple of payments before handing over). I was aiming for at least £50, and so I am really pleased to say that people have been very generous sponsoring me. I have now managed to raise a total of £136.30.

Many thanks to everyone who has kindly sponsored me. I'm still chuffed to have been the 1st walker over the finish line :)

I walked the route again this afternoon (somewhat more leisurely I might add!). I wanted to try and clear up the distance confusion issue. I took my handheld GPS that I used to use on my boat, and is accurate to within 4 metres. The total distance for the 5km course is exactly 5.3km. So that's sorted now. My phone must've been misbehaving a lot on Sunday!
