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

“amazing hotel with great staff”

Date of review: 22 Mar 2011

Myself and a colleague was supposed to be on the island only for a day but because of delays on the plane and due to work going on for longer than expected we missed our flight which was not such a bad thing because we got to stay in this amazing hotel with very nice staff and lovely food. On arrival we wanted to use the pool which the manager allowed us to use till 6 which was great as i think it was supposed to close at 5. entering the room i noticed how quiet, clean and fresh it was with a very comfy bed and great shower room, also very clean. The food was 5* along with the service which was very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and if im back on the island again this will definitely be my first port of call. I did notice that it was a 2* hotel but why as it should be more.
