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.

Spring In Scilly

Monday 10th March 2014

Spring is definitely here in Scilly. The weather is glorious. Sunshine & blue skies. If you in a sheltered spot, the sun's warmth can really be felt on your face... Enough to actually burn, so sun cream at the ready! It's easy to get caught out this time of year as the air is so clean & pure, the sun's rays have no trouble getting through. 

I've only had chance to snap a couple of pictures of Porthcressa in the sunshine.

You could be here soon if you want an early season break! Between Monday 17th March & Thursday 10th April we have a special offer on. Just £69 per person, per night for dinner, room & breakfast. Stay for 4 nights but only pay for 3 nights! Call us on 01720 422575 to book.
