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 good seaside hotel”

Bell Rock Hotel

We really enjoyed the holiday on Scilly and the hotel was good value on a half-board basis. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was fine. The pool is refreshing after a busy day. Took a trip seal 'hunting' and then on to St. Martins on Crusader which was well worth it. Also had a laugh on the Island open top bus tour. The beach at Great Bay St. Martin's is FAB.

Dear everyone at the Bellrock

Just a quick note to thank you all for looking after me for the few days I had on St. Marys. I think your Hotel is great, everyone is friendly, the meals were excellent and so is its position.

I will recommend it to anyone and I hope to visit again.

With best wishes
