The rooms are above the pub but we could not hear any noise. Our room decor was tired and I did have a problem that I had to bring to the staffs' attention but they immediately put it right and were very apologetic. We had been out all day so we decided to eat in the restaurant and we were...

I spent a week at The Longboat with a group of eight and we found it had everything that we needed. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The location is terrific. It's very close to both the railway station and the bus station. And it's an easy walk to the coastal paths. The meals were great and there's a wonderful,...

This friendly venue is located extremely close to the railway station. It is quite convenient, except for the fifty stairs to the third floor. There is no lift. The breakfast is included with the room, and is quite good with a variety of foods. The room was quite clean. I did not enjoy walking up and down all those stairs.

Well located for the Scillonian Ferry, with long stay parking close by (£6.00 per night). Standard pub rooms, rather basic but adequate for a one-night stop-over. Some stray hairs in the shower! We enjoyed a good, freshly-cooked breakfast.

Breakfast is a buffet style with plenty of choice and very tasty local produce. Staff were helpful and always had a smile nothing was too much trouble...

The service here was good, and the staff were excellent. Breakfast was good as well. The room was standard but comfortable, but we didn't intend to spend all our time there, and were happy to get our heads down each night after doing a lot of touring! For the number of staff there, and what they have to do, from...

Great accommodation. Great breakfast. Great staff. Great location. Everything about this is great. Except it is not suitable for those less able physically. No lift and lots of stairs. Breakfast was excellent and we didn't need to eat at lunchtime. Beer was also very good.
