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.

New Year

Tuesday 31st December 2013

It's New Year's Eve, the last day of the year!! What will 2014 bring I wonder? Hopefully it will be a happy and healthy one for all!

Happy New Year from us all at Bell Rock Hotel! 

I will be away from the islands now for a couple of weeks.  Shirley will be taking calls on 01720 422575 for bookings and enquiries; and of course deposits for those with provisional bookings for 2014. Jenny & June will be keeping an eye on the emails, but for urgent attention please do call Shirley.

If you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or Tumblr please keep an eye out as I may well post pictures etc so you can see what I get up to whilst away from the hotel! (Internet coverage allowing)

Rough Seas on Scilly

Friday 27th December 2013

A brisk walk this lunchtime around the Garrison in the blustery winds. Blowing the cobwebs away after a couple of days of over indulgence Christmas festivities.
The seas have picked up some heavy swells with the strong winds of late.
