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.

Bryher - Sunday 1st April 2012

Sunday the 1st April was a beautiful day! No Joke!!! Out of the cool breeze, the sun was lovely. I managed to get slightly burnt (even after telling guests to use suncream all week so they don't burn!).
It was our first day out this year on the boats, and Bryher didn't disappoint.
We had lunch at Hell Bay where we were greeted by a cheeky Thrush looking for a snack!

After lunch we walked the north end of the island passed Popplestones, up to Shipman Head and back round to Fraggle Rock. The view towards Tresco was cracking!

I had a go using the panorama app on my phone to take in the view of Tresco, which didn't come out too bad really
