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

"A lovely relaxed and friendly hotel”

Bell Rock Hotel

Sep 15, 2009 | Trip type: Couples

We just came back from a week on Scilly at the Bell Rock Hotel, and wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay on the islands and the hospitality of Bell Rock. Don't let the 2 stars fool you, it really is a very nice hotel, with friendly staff, and despite the back pain the Manager Daniel seemed to be suffering he remained cheerful and helpful. Lovely food, good value, decent rooms, and even without a sea view - not many rooms here or at any place you stay on Scilly has sea views to be fair - the accomodation was just right for us. After all, why stay in your room all holiday - you should get out and walk! We certainly did lots of that, on a hearty hotel breakfast, and come back to a lovely evening meal, and drinks in the bar. Will definitely be returning. Great value. Thanks Bell Rock Hotel!
