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.

Lovely Spring Feel

Wednesday 20th February 2013

There's a fresh breeze today but its not too cold and what's even better is the clear blue skies and sunshine! Beautiful!! Its like a lovely spring feel to the islands. Too good to miss, I took a quick stomp around the Garrison at lunchtime to take in the fresh sea air. The seas were a lovely blue/green colour and shimmering the bright sunlight.
I've not been around the Garrison for a few weeks as I've been away. You just can't beat Scilly to come back home to!

Please Disperse...

"Please disperse, there's nothing to see here..."
These guys are over for a controlled burn of old marine flares. Nothing untoward to be concerned about! Always best to have these explosive substances disposed of in a safe manner!!

Scilly Sunshine

Sunday 17th February 2013

Apologies for the lack of posts. I've been away jollying it up skiing in Italy before taking a look about in Devon & Cornwall. I'm back now and slowly working through the pile of paperwork. Catch up is always the downfall of going away.
Anyway, here is a couple of the harbour from Buzza taken on Sunday, with the burial chamber in the foreground.
