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

“Fantastic Hotel In Perfect Location”

Date of review: 6 May 2011

It has a good, quiet location and is spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the restaurant provides excellent food.
The only negative would be ‘no lift’ but if you can negotiate stairs OK, this hotel is better than most three star hotels. Would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone.
It was my second visit to this hotel and the same high standards were maintained, as before .

"We are pleased that you have enjoyed another stay at the Bell Rock Hotel, and we hope to be able to welcome you back yet again in the future.
I see you have picked up on the fact we have no lift facilities. It is something that the hotel proprietor has looked into, but the problem we have is that the hotel is a listed building, and the staircase can't be touched/altered. We will of course help guests with luggage when required. I am glad though, that it didn't spoil your holiday in any way."
