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

“Friendly & relaxing”

Reviewed 4 July 2012

This was our second stay at the Bell Rock, following our first visit a year ago, and we have already made a provisional booking for 2013. The hotel's predominant atmosphere is one of quiet, peaceful, relaxing comfort. There is no noise or bustle and any music in the lounge or dining room is kept at a discreet background level. All the staff exude an air of cheerful friendliness, while carrying out their duties with unobtrusive efficiency. The dining room is spacious, light and airy, and the food is varied and perfectly cooked and presented, without the slightest trace of pretentious trendiness. Our room was quiet and well-appointed, and the bed probably the most comfortable that either of us has ever experienced in any hotel.
We would recommend the Bell Rock unreservedly.
