This Hotel is in a lovely spot. Breakfasts were lovely and the staff were outstanding. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated and could do with a refurb, but, lovely and clean. Cannot fault the cleanliness. The bed was extremely comfortable and I had 3 lovely nights sleep. I did find it a little precarious on an...

The hotel is in the centre of St Marys and minutes from the port for boats to other islands. We had a lovely sea view room which was right on the beach. With a wide window we could spend time just watching the boats and the birds from the comfort of our own room. The staff could not have been...

A small, friendly welcoming hotel. As a 2 star hotel this is not grand, the rooms are small but very comfortable with everything you need. The food was excellent, please consider eating there in the evening, for £10 you will not get a better 3 course meal. There is a small bar with sofas where we chatted with other guests....
