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.

Guest Review Extracted From TripAdvisor

“excellent, relaxing, break.”

Reviewed 26 August 2012

Only booked a few days before, to be told only a small room available, however we were not too bothered as it`s only somewhere to freshen up and sleep, (as we`re both relitively young late thirties). On arrival the room was fine for our needs, better than anticipated, and with a sea view which was a bonus. The room was very clean and adequate for us and our luggage, and the staff very helpful with luggage.
This was a small break without the kids, and certainly ticked all the boxes we needed.
The food in the hotel was of an excellent standard (compliments to the chef ) and the waiting staff very attentive and hard working. Would definately recommend this hotel ( and I`ve stayed in a lot worse 5 star hotels ). I think the 2 star rating is very harsh and should be re-assessed as a matter of urgency, definately 3 / 4 star standard.
