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.

Hi Daniel

Just a note to say thank you for a lovely holiday. This was our 7th year at the Bell Rock and no wonder we keep coming back for more. You and your staff are always so welcoming and cheerful and nothing is to much trouble for any of you. We also receive a lovely warm welcome from Chris & June. The rooms are of excellent standard with nice comfortable beds and they are immaculate. The food is lovely (especially the puddings) this manifests itself when I get on the scales upon my return home. I would recommend the Bell Rock to anyone who is looking for a holiday in the Isles of Scilly. So thank you once again and we are looking forward to seeing you all in 2012.

Jane & Roger Gilks.
