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.

Magic Really Does Happen In The Bell Rock Hotel

...Or at least, it did this evening!! We have a guest in at the moment who is a magician and a member of the Magic Circle (so no explanations or solutions given unfortunately!), and he has performed various card tricks and illusions for the guests in the bar in an impromptu little show after dinner.
I have to say, it was amazing to see the skill of these illusions! One trick he did was to have an empty champagne flute into which he placed a 2p coin and a £2 coin. In a quick and barely visible flick of the glass whilst his hand was nowhere near the opening, the 2p coin just disappeared!!
The guests and staff have been truly wowed by it all, so many thanks go to our guest for this!
Along with tricks & illusions, he also does balloon modelling, and made a couple for the staff. Here is a picture of the one he made for Adriana:
