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.

Guest Review Extracted From TripAdvisor

Note From Daniel:
...Well, what can I say?! I'm not sure where this review is coming from, but being fair, I will still post it on my blog!! I guess I can't please everybody all of the time. I do however find it rather annoying when people do not see me if there is a problem whilst they are here, and then go home to complain about it from a safe distance, as contradictory to the review, nothing was said to me. I have since contacted the guest and resolved any issues. I do feel I have been sold short on this one. Take it on the chin Daniel ...and keep smiling (as always!!) ;)

All of the staff were excellent, with the exception of the manager who seems unable to smile and also ignored a complaint from one of our party.
Our rooms were very ordinary.
The food was of a good standard.
A very good location .
