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.

Subject: Our first stay at Bell Rock!

Dear Daniel

It took us 52 years to the discover the Bell Rock, after first visiting Scilly in the late 1950’s. We have been on a journey of many of the levels of accommodation in the Islands, over those years, and we both feel that we have come to journeys end. We have discovered, what is for us, the perfect place to stay in St Mary’s.

The hotel was first class, the food was excellent and the staff were courteous, professional but within that they never failed to be friendly, even though when a crucial member of the team was “fog bound” in Penzance.

Gerry says it has been a long time since she has had a real holiday, No shopping, no cooking and no washing up.

Thank you all for making that possible.

It may have been our first visit but with God’s willing, we will be back!

Ray & Gerry Tims.
