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.

Room Photo Update For The Ground Floor Rooms

We have re-decorated the rooms on the ground floor during the winter closure of 2010/11 and replaced the fabrics to revamp the rooms. We have gone for a lighter shade and simpler, more elegant colours for the fabrics.
I have now taken some new photos of these and replaced the old ones in the "Ground Floor - Easy Access Rooms" photo gallery. This can be found on the right side of the page. The rooms are numbers: 22, 23, 25, & 17.

...Photos to follow: The Dining Room. We now have the new tables, but are still awaiting the new chairs, which should hopefully be with us at the end of April. I will post photos of this when we get these in!
