Its wise of the hotel to not have pictures of the exterior on the website. The architecture is bad and it looks cheap. Interior is old and out of date. Its a lot of stairs and steps to access the rooms. Our room was a family room with lower standard then expected. The breakfast was ok but dinner was no... More

Really good experience here, particularly after we had a nightmare with our flight to scilly cancelled. We stayed on the Friday night before an early flight the next day to scilly. The rooms are nothing extraordinary but perfectly good, especially given we need a room big enough for 2 adults, 3 young children and a dog. We had room 303... More

This place is all about the views and location. The rooms are nothing to get excited about (granted i usually go for the more budget end) but they give you what you need. Cumfy bed and warm shower. The thing that sets this place out from the rest is the view in the foyer. Sitting on the south end on... More
