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.

Tresco East Side

A trip to Tresco for the day. After lunch, the sun came out beautifully and so we took the opportunity of walking back to the quay at Carn Near from Old Grimsby down the east side of the island. Stunning views.

Sunday 11th August 2013

A trip to Tresco with my family, who normally hide out of shot, but I caught my daughter on the wall at New Grimsby! We met up with some friends for an unplanned & impromptu afternoon & evening. Sometimes you have to just do these things and enjoy life. Enjoy it while you can. And what better place, than Scilly?!
