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

“Back to the Future”

Reviewed 8 May 2012

The Bell Rock has comfortable rooms, delicious food, and charming, old-fashioned (in the best sense) service. The Isles of Scilly are a step back in time with a slower pace of life even when overrun by a thousand or so Pilot Gig racers there for the weekend's World Championship. The hotel, conveniently located on St Mary's, is an ideal base to visit the other, even quieter islands while still close to a choice of bars and eateries.

***Thank you for your review. It's great that you have enjoyed the Isles of Scilly and your stay with us at the Bell Rock Hotel. I see you have picked up on our traditional values of customer service from attentive staff, and I'm pleased you have enjoyed our food from the daily changing menus. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Daniel***
