Blog Details

We are a 2 star hotel with rooms situated throughout 4 floors. The hotel has no lift due to the grade 2 listed building status meaning we can't make alterations to install one. We will of course, help with luggage though.

Our food is traditional and cooked using fresh produce of fish, meats, vegetables & dairy sourced from Scilly & Cornwall where possible. Our style is not nouvelle cuisine or a fancy Michelin Star type restaurant.

Our experienced staff offer excellent & attentive service, far beyond the normal expectations for a 2 star rated hotel

Our swimming pool is 8 metres x 4 metres and so neither small, or Olympic size! An unusual extra facility compared to even many other hotels. Its size is governed by available space, and is covered in and heated.

Our rooms are comfortable & furnished to the same standard. All are en suite with either bath, shower or both, and some are compact, hence the special offer lower tariff for these.

The hotel is situated in the centre of Hugh Town, at the quieter side and is ideally positioned for easy access to the harbour for inter island boats to the inhabited islands of Tresco, Bryher, St Agnes & St Martins.

I try to post regular photographs of the islands, and you can see more of the hotel in the photo galleries on the right hand side of the page.

Guest Review Extracted From TripAdvisor

Bell Rock Hotel

We booked 'on line' only viewing the hotel from the outside on a previous visit to the Scillies, reading the Tripadvisor comments convinced us it was worth a try, and we were not disappointed. Everything you expect from a 3 or 4 star hotel was packaged in this neat tidy and extremely well run 2 star establishment. It is a very rare occurrence to see all the staff in a hotel seemingly content with their chosen vocation, but to a man and woman the staff appeared very happy working there. The meals were excellent and a good choice, not too much and not all doused in some strange sauce, that seems the current way with some restaurants. One problem, we only booked 7 nights, so have now booked 12 for next May.
