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.

“A Warm Welcome”
Bell Rock Hotel

Malvern, United Kingdom
Sep 21, 2008

My wife and I spent a week in Scilly in September 2008 and stayed at the Bell Rock Hotel on St Mary's. Due to delays in our helicopter flight from Penzance we arrived very late and were given a wonderfully warm welcome and, in spite of the restaurant being closed, a meal had been kept for us. This welcoming and friendly attitude by all the staff continued throughout our stay. We found the accommodation to be comfortable and the food of a high quality from a table d'hote menu that changed daily. In particular we found the wine list to be excellent value for money. The staff were always helpful and provided all the information we needed to get around the islands. We have no hesitation in recommending the Bell Rock as a good base for exploring Scilly.
