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.

Cuisine & Swimming Pool at the Bell Rock Hotel

The guest review made on TripAdvisor titled "A Lovely Stay" is posted below. It has spurred me to post up a new photo gallery which offers sample menus for reference (namely from this last week 12th to 18th August). Once clicked on, the menus can be zoomed in.
The cuisine at the Bell Rock Hotel is of a traditional slant with traditional roast dinners etc. We also have world cuisines, such as Thai or Indian curries; Bolognese; Chilli; or even Hungarian Beef Goulash.
Whatever the menu, there is always meat, fish & vegetarian options available. The menu changes daily, and there is the option to pre-order a steak for a small supplement Monday to Saturday.
We have had the same chefs now for 3 seasons, and this being their 4th season. They source as much local produce as feasible depending on the season, and take pride in their home made dishes.
If you are looking for good value, excellent food & varied choice, then I am sure you won't be disappointed. We also welcome non-residents for evening meals: 2 Courses is only £17.50 per head and 3 Courses is just £20.00 per head. We even offer coffee or tea afterwards at no extra charge.

The Swimming Pool is indoors, and heated... A rare facility on the islands and warmer than the sea any day!! The dimensions are approximately 9m x 4m.
