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.

Best Value in the Scillies”
Bell Rock Hotel

My wife and I returned to the Bell Rock for a week in June/July 2010 after staying there in September 2008. Nothing had changed and we again found all aspects of our stay to be excellent. We were made very welcome by Daniel and his staff. I was inrtrigued by the comment in one review about Daniel's inability to smile! If I have a complaint it would be that he smiles too much!
Once again Daniel's wine selection was excellent in quality and value.

Good Afternoon

It has occurred to me that I might not have emailed my thanks for a lovely holiday
4th-11th June. Have been extremely busy since return. I came with 3 friends and it was the first time to visit the Scilly Isles for each of us. Stewart Warren and Nigel Porter recommended your hotel to me and have thanked them both for the recommendation. When I last saw Stewart and Nigel they had not long returned home to Cambridge therefore still 'in holiday mood'.

The meals, service, rooms etc were excellent. All staff friendly and welcoming. I have recommended your hotel myself now. In fact, someone I know from the Cambridge walking group is considering a bird watching, wild flower holiday in Scillies, possibly next easter time.

Thanks again,

Best wishes,

Patricia Lowe

Hi Daniel
So sorry we missed you yesterday due to our early start but would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at BELL ROCK. The accommodation could not be faulted and all of the staff were most helpful at all times including yourself.
We were very fortunate with the weather which certainly helps to get around the islands.
Hopefully some day we may return and would definitely stay at the Bell Rock which we would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Scillies.
Once again thankyou for everything.
Pat & Sid

We enjoyed a very relaxing stay . The hotel is ideally situated for access to two beaches, and the harbour is a short walk away. The staff are friendly and helpful . The meals are are good with lots of choice.Also the hotel is spotlessly clean.
