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

“What a treat!”

Reviewed 23 September 2012

as we were staying in other accomodation on the island we only visited the restaurant. After a warm welcome we were shown to our table. It took some while to order as all the dishes sounded fabulous but we finally made our choices. Wewerent disappointed...the food was beautifully cooked,well presented and delicious!!! the staff were friendly, helpful but never intrusive and the whole evning ended with coffee and mints in the bar, and a chance to catch up with fellow travellers. i would cetrainly recommend the Bell Rock for a meal to remember, esp to fellow coeliacs....a knowledgeable chef meant that there were no worries about the food.
a lovely night out.

***Thank you for taking the time during your holiday to Scilly to choose to come in and eat at the Bell Rock. I'm pleased that you have enjoyed your dinner, and that our staff helped to make your evening a relaxing & enjoyable time. Maybe we will see you again another time; or perhaps you may wish to stay here? Regards, Daniel***
