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

“Even better than last year!”

Reviewed 20 August 2011

As a rule we never repeat holidays but we enjoyed our stay at The Bell Rock last year we decided to go straight back and we were not disappointed. This year we had a lovely room on the first floor with a small but immaculate en-suite. The first impression of the hotel was of the high standard of cleanliness and it came as no surprise to see that the hotel had won an award for this. The food at both breakfast and evening meals could not be faulted and on the one occasion my wife was not enamoured with the veggie choice the chef produced an alternative. The standard of service was of the highest quality and the waiting staff manage to combine efficiency with being very personable.
Everything about our stay was perfect. Many thanks to Daniel and his outstanding staff.
