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.

Dear Mr Lawson,
Thank you for a lovely holiday at the Bell Rock Hotel. The service was excellent and our room was very clean and comfortable.
We found the location ideal, very close to the beaches, shops and the bus route.
The sea was beautiful but rather too cold for swimming and so the hotel pool was a welcome treat and was very warm. It would be good if it could be open for a little longer into the evening as we sometimes found there wasn't time for a swim after a full day out.
Paul's boat trips were great and we saw all the other islands. We were lucky enough to see some puffins on the way to St Agnes before they disappear later in the month.
We hope to return to Scilly again soon.
Jill and John Scott.

Dear Mr & Mrs Scott,

Thank you for your kind words, and I'm pleased you had an enjoyable stay here. I shall pass your comments to Paul also. The Puffins are just about to leave, so you timed it just right to see them.

I shall discuss your comments about the swimming pool with the proprietors. The reasons for the 6pm closure of the pool is due to the dinner service commencing, and also chemicals are regularly added to the pool at this time.

Kind regards,
