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 we expected”

Reviewed 6 May 2012

We visited the Scilly Isles recently and used Trip Advisor to choose a hotel. We were not disappointed. The Bell Rock Hotel is a traditional hotel in the town centre although not on the sea front it is only a block back. We had very little choice of rooms as the week we chose was the world championship gig racing events which made everything extremely busy. Our room was at the back of the hotel with no outlook but this was compensated for by the package that was offered for full board. The staff are excellent, the cleanliness is unsurpassed and the food is tradtional but excellent quality.
The Scilly Isles tend to be expensive however the Bell Rock Hotel offers excellent facilities at reasonable cost.

****I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at the Bell Rock Hotel on our dinner, room & breakfast tariff, and we hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. As you have discovered, the 1st bank holiday weekend in May is a very busy one with the World Pilot Gig Championship's taking place. At the same time though, it can be a very peaceful visit to the islands, as away from the crowds centered on Town Beach, you can easily find a quiet spot.
We always recommend early booking where possible.****
