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

“Everything you could ask for and more”

Reviewed 17 July 2011

This was our first visit to the Isles of Scilly and it proved a memorable week both as a consequence of the superb location but also because of the excellent hotel. From the warm and friendly greeting on arrival, to the first view of our spotless Room 2 overlooking the bay, through to our departure five days later I can only speak in positives.
Though not large and with some low beams, our room was well furnished and the bed was particularly comfortable. Washing and toilet faciliites were quite adequate.
The entire hotel has a comfortable, relaxed feel and is maintained with great attention to detail and impressive cleanliness.
All the staff were always friendly and courteous with a genuine desire to offer any assistance required. This was very evident at breakfast and dinner where the service was punctual but not obtrusive. The menu changed daily and the food was presented attractively and of an excellent quality.
Though not a criticism amd only a minor point it would have been appreciated if coffee could have been offered at table rather than in the communal lounge. Whilst very happy to share pleasantries, not all guests feel the need to impose themselves on others after dinner.
We found Paul Hicks visits over breakfast in the morning to discuss boat trips for the day helpful and informative. We also appreciated his willingness to recommend another provider when he could not meet our needs.
The hotel can be justly proud of its high rating. Certainly, when we visit Scilly again as surely we must, it is to the Bell Rock Hotel that we will turn.
