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

“Warm and Welcoming”

Reviewed 1 April 2013 1 person found this review helpful

This was our first visit to the Isles of Scilly and even though the weather was very cold the Bell Rock Hotel was warm and welcoming. It certainly lived up to the other excellant reviews. We stayed 4 nights and the food and service at breakfast and dinner was first class. All the staff made an effort to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Daniel the Hotel Manager made sure we were aware of changes to the ferry schedules prior to leaving home and after checking out. Previous reviews have mentioned the small rooms, but I certainly found them adequate for our needs and well stocked with as much tea/coffee & milk as you would need (even for my wife).
The after dinner coffee & mints were served in the bar area, which I found was a good opportunity to meet the other guests and exchange holiday experiences and ideas. This added to the friendly atmosphere of the hotel
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Bell Rock and hopefully will have an opportunity to return in the near future.
