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

“Highly Recommended”

We stayed at the Bell Rock Hotel between 6th August 2012 and 13th August 2012 half board. The hotel is 2 Star but should be much higher. It is spotlessly clean, all the staff without exception were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. The restaurant was very well staffed, well furnished and decorated. There is a great menu choice each day and a really good wine list. We have stayed at 5 star hotels around the world but have to say this hotel equals some of the best. We stayed in room 5. The rooms are not very large but perfectly adequate, the en suite is small but again perfectly functional. Daniel the Manager was very helpful and attention to detail was much appreciated. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool which is nice when the weather is bad, the hotel provides towels and robes, however the pool is the only part of the hotel that would benefit from some up dating. The hotel is ideally situated just 5 minute level walk to the quay. The prices are reasonable for the quality and level of service. We will definitely stay there again in the future.

Thank you for your kind review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your holiday on Scilly, staying at the Bell Rock Hotel as your base to explore. Our staff have obviously left a great impression and have helped to make your stay an enjoyable one. I'm pleased you enjoyed our food and wine (it was unfortunate that weather problems delayed the special order bottle of wine I was getting for you. Hopefully someone else can enjoy it now it's finally arrived! Receiving goods on an offshore island can sometimes be problematic).
We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
