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

“A great base for your Isles of Scilly holiday .”

Reviewed 14 September 2012

If you want a hotel in St. Mary's offering great value , good location , wonderful food and a warm reception, then look no further than the Bell Rock Hotel, Church Street. A level 10 minute walk from the Quay where all the boats depart for the other Islands and within a hundred yards of two sandy beaches , each with amazing views, the hotel location is excellent and an ideal base for your exploration of the Isles of Scilly. Shops, banks and the Post Office are close at hand. The manager and staff of the hotel extend a warm and friendly welcome whilst the quality and choice of food in the restaurant would do credit to a 4 star hotel. We had a ground floor bedroom which was both comfortable and spacious and although we didn't use the indoor swimming pool, we were told by guests who did it was a welcome facility .If we ever return to St Mary's we would certainly stay at the Bell Rock Hotel and we strongly recommend it.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have a lift so if you don't like stairs ask for a ground or first floor room.
