The four of us have just spent a week in the family room and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at this wonderful, family run hotel. The rooms are simple but very comfortable, the views are unbeatable (try the guest lounge on the top floor, especially good for weather checks since the met office seem to have trouble forecasting accurately for Scilly). The food is very good indeed here and the staff are ony too happy to cater for speial requirements (I am a coeliac so this can be tricky), but this is an island so maybe think ahead and give penty of warning so they can get stuff in. The weekly authentic Thai night is probably the best kept secret on the island and was utterly fantastic! The staff are friendly, accommodating and helpful. The location of the hotel is ideal as it is very central, almost in the sea at high tide (!) yet the entrance is down a little back street which stays quiet. All in all a fabuous place to come and unwind.
