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

“Deserves it rating as No.1 hotel”

Reviewed 22 September 2012 NEW

We chose the Bell Rock Hotel at the last minute but were not disappointed. The staff, food and location are excellent for a stay on the Isles. Our only disappointment was the room which was a bit on the small side and up two steep flights. We knew this before booking so do not comment as a negative but just so as other guests are aware.
Lovely stay in a welcoming friendly hotel.

Room Tip: Staff are helpful when choosing rooms. You need to be fit for the second floor rooms.

***Thank you for your review, and I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us on the whole. We have varying shapes and sizes of rooms depending on the location of them within the building. The hotel is an old building in the main front part, and this makes some of the rooms less uniform in shape and size. These more compact rooms come with a cheaper tariff. Some also have the benefit of sea views as on the 2nd floor, which will hopefully compensates for their size. We don't have a lift in the hotel, but we can always help with luggage if required. If we could get a lift in, we would, but the age of the building and the fact that we are a grade 2 listed building makes this option an impossibility unfortunately. Hopefully this won't deter you from returning in the future. We always recommend booking early to give more room options. We always describe rooms as you point out, which hopefully helps in the booking process. My blog website also offers photo galleries of all the rooms and their positions within the hotel to help guests to see what is on option. Regards, Daniel***
