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.

Porthcressa & Little Porth

Wednesday 9th April 2014

It's another sunny spring day on Scilly. My daughter Keely Lawson has taken a few photos after school, around Porthcressa & Little Porth. I hope you like them as much as I do?! :-)

I took another quick walk around the Garrrison as the weather was again perfect. I took a slightly different route this time. The skies are just so blue! No Saharan smoggy dust here!! 

Mother's Day - Sunday 30th March

I've just found a peaceful photo I took back on Mother's Day, early evening as fishermen return to the beach in their punt as the sun goes down.

Spring Time Scilly

Tuesday 8th April 2014

I've not had a great deal of time for walks yet this season but I need to get back into it to burn off the winter blubber if nothing else!! Anyway, I managed to squeeze in a quick late afternoon walk around the Garrison yesterday. Monday was a stunning day, from mid morning onwards, and again today from the start!!
