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.

Photo Gallery Update!!

I've finally taken the new pictures of the Long Wing bedrooms & bathrooms today. They have now replaced the older pictures.
You will see that this year, the rooms have all been decorated in a cream colour as opposed to the yellow wallpaper with borders.
The bed spreads, curtains & cushions are also in the red theme to match the style of the 1st & 2nd floor rooms.
The bathrooms have also lost the glass shower screens in favour of curtains, and the taps on the baths & sinks have been renewed.
This work was all undertaken in the winter before opening for the 2010 season.... it's just taken me until the beginning of October to photograph & upload them; Sorry!!! Better late than never I say.
I've also added a few more to the public areas gallery.
