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.

Superfast Broadband Arrives on Scilly

Wednesday 23rd July 2014

An historic day on Scilly. The fibre optic cable for superfast broadband is brought ashore on Porthcressa. A feat of engineering at its best. Great to watch.

These photos are nearly a week ago now but hopefully the scenes will make up for the delay! 
We had a trip over to Tresco and relaxed for the day in the sunshine.

Lightning Display

Thursday 17th July 2014

The lightning and thunder storms reported in today's news from last night across the south of the country started here about 9pm for a while. It was quite mesmerising with the skies lighting up brightly. 
I was lucky enough to capture one large bolt across the skies above Porthcressa

Pelistry Beach

Saturday 5th July 2014

The sun is out again and it's been a scorching hot afternoon on Scilly. We headed for a lazy couple of hours on Pelistry Beach. Plenty of sun cream being the essential ingredient today!!

There weren't many clouds in the clear blue skies today. I didn't get my phone out quick enough for this cloud formation and it changed from what I thought it looked like!! Oh well, it's still a relaxing photo.

Scillonian Sundays

The Scillonian III is now sailing on Sundays until Sunday 7th September being the last sailing. Here's a picture of her arriving on Sunday 29th June as she passes the island of Samson

Posts out of Sync

I've had a couple of posts that failed to upload so they're now out of sync slightly. These are Scilly Summer Shots & Landing Craft.

Scilly Summer Shots

This week has been stunning. Scilly summers are hard to beat! Why on earth would I want to be anywhere else? ...answer; I wouldn't!!
We've had guests really made up today after seeing dolphins whilst out on a boat trip with local boatman Mark Bromham on the Golden Spray
Here's a couple of pictures of St Mary's this week:







Landing Craft

The landing craft has been in again bringing materials for the airport runway works. 

St Agnes

Sunday 29th June 2014 

Sunday lived up to its name this week and we took a trip over to St Agnes for the first time this year for some lunch with visiting friends.
