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.

Wednesday 18th September 2013

After a glorious start to the day, it decided to cloud over in the afternoon. It's not cold though and I didn't need a jumper or anything to go around Peninnis

Bar Point & Innisidgen

Sunday 1st September

Well, if the weather for the first day of September is an indicator to the rest of the month we are on to a winner! Lovely, warm and sunny day. 
We took a walk up to Bar Point and sat on the beach just around the corner towards Innisidgen. The sand is very fine and a beautiful colour.
The Scillonian went past on her penultimate Sunday Sailing of the season.
