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 - Bell Rock Hotel Scilly

“Relaxing Retreat”

Reviewed 19 August 2012

This is a lovely quiet hotel located on the main island of the Scillies (St Mary's). First impression from the outside we thought it might be more for older couples however, that was not the case. Its very cosy and although the room was small it was very clean and adequate for our stay (you only really sleep in them anyway!). There were even free reusable carrier bags to use. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was extremely clean. We booked dinner and breakfast here and the food at both was excellent. The waiters and waitresses were very friendly and always had a smile. There is even a small indoor pool to use - we didnt this time but as we will definitely be going back we will try it next time. To make the most of our last day the hotel arranged to have our luggage taken to the ferry for a small fee (VERY Small fee £1.25) as the ferry didnt leave until 4.15pm we had the day to enjoy. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday.

I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and the service you received was of a high standard.
The rooms within the hotel vary in shape and size depending on where they are situated, and some have the sea views, as it seems you have had. The rooms are all viewable on my blog photo galleries. This is a good tool for guests to find out more about the hotel.
