Lots of information leaflets and books here, but where it really wins is that the staff are local people and truly understand, and can advise on, the quirks of a Scilly holiday

Helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Will advise on where to see and what to do, when asked. Great place to sit outside when too sunny or raining.
