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 very nice hotel”

Date of review: 22 May 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at the Bell Rock - it's ideally positioned for the beaches, harbour and shops of St Mary's. Everywhere in the hotel is spotlessly clean and all the members of staff we met were friendly and efficient, from the manager down to the cleaner.
The food in the restaurant was of a high quality, well presented and there was always a good choice available. Our room was spacious and comfortably furnished, and we especially liked the generous amounts of tea/coffee/milk supplies provided.(some hotels give enough for 1 or 2 cups at most)
All in all, a very pleasant stay - would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
