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 St Mary's

“Home from home”

Reviewed 15 August 2012

We arrived at the hotel after traveling on the ferry across a rough sea. We were instantly made to feel welcome. The room was ready and spotless, the pool is great for the kids, towels and robes are available from reception. Breakfast is excellent and at last a hotel that is child friendly and allows me to order smoked haddock instead of a fry up without charging any extra, kippers also available as well as "proper" poached eggs. They deserve there trip advisor rating as number 1 on the island from our experience. The staff have big smiles and treated guests like family, well done. The bar is well stocked at reasonable prices. If you are visiting the island it's definitely worth a stay. We will definitely return. The beds here are very comfortable and the location of the hotel is great for exploring.

I am pleased that we were able to accommodate your family, and that you all enjoyed your brief stay with us after a not so smooth crossing on the ship. Unfortunately, the winds have been particularly strong over the last few days, and your plan to return home by fixed wing aircraft was probably welcomed by the rest of your family.
We regularly receive compliments on our freshly cooked breakfasts (rather than bain marie/hot cabinet style) and I'm pleased you have enjoyed this service.
Thank you also for your enquiry on your return home with plans to re-visit! I hope that we can accommodate you again soon.
