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.

Every area in the hotel was spotlessly clean. Although I did not request clean linen and towels daily, I am sure they were changed at the discretion of the housekeeper.Breakfast was full English with a good choice of items. Dinner was excellent every night with soup as well as the stated starters. If you include coffee, this was 5 courses. Food always hot and well cooked. The dining room staff were cheerful, friendly and always polite. Nothing seemed too much trouble.Very convenient for beach, shops, harbour, community and tour bus.Very good value Fudge shop for sandwiches, pasties, pizzas, hot drinks and delicious flavours of ice cream! This is across the road in front of the hotel and around the corner to town beach, where you can sit, eat and watch the boats.The hotel is a listed building and has no lift but does have rooms with only a few stairs to manage. One night the array of desserts was such that I had difficulty choosing
