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 friendly, comfortable, well-appointed and well-located hotel”
Bell Rock Hotel

The rooms were comfortable and thoughtfully-decorated, and had all the amenities that we could wish. The service from the hardworking staff was cheerful, friendly, polite and always helpful. They were not intrusive, but always available to offer ideas for actvities and general advice. Had the weather let us down, there were plenty of games and books to use and the hotel had a pleasant swimming pool decorated by an island artist to show the gig racing for which the Scillies are famous.
The location was ideal. The hotel was in a quiet spot less than two minutes walk from either the harbour or a sandy beach. However, it was no more than three minutes walk to the shops in the centre of Hugh Town and about five minutes to the quays from which the ferries to other islands left. Bell Rock is a lovely hotel providing the basis for a great holiday.
