Spent a week here, our room was on the top floor with sea views. Very comfortable room with large bed, kettle and tea coffee provided in room. Very friendly helpful staff, who are interested in making your stay enjoyable. Small bar service with full dining room, cooked breakfast was very good with a large selection.

Thank you for your 5/5 rating. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and our staff looked after you well. We encourage guest interaction and try to help make people's stay more enjoyable, and to help with information about the islands. It is good to see you enjoyed our breakfasts; it appears you booked in for just B&B. Maybe next...

We stayed for 4 nights in room 2 which had a view of both bays from the top windows. It was a very nice room but up on the 3rd floor and there is no lift. It is good exercise if you are fit . Breakfast had wonderful sausages and also good kippers. Evening meal was always delicious.

At start of season when dining room not yet operating, was sad not to experience the splendid meals usually on offer. However, following shocking crossing, we were welcomed warmly as ever and allowed to 'recover' in our own time. Usual welcome from the staff who have been in place for so long; home from home is not too much of...

We were pleased to be able to welcome you back again, and on our day of opening for the season too! Grabbing a late deal as you did offered the special offer B&B tariff (the first 4 days of the season was when only B&B was available). We hope to see you again later in the year perhaps to enjoy...

We'd decided to take a holiday on St Mary's and booked into the Bell Rock Hotel on the strength of a local recommmendation. Plus points would definitely include the overall standard of catering and furnishings and unfailingly polite and attentive service. The location in Hugh Town's main street is also a convenient one as there's only a few minutes walk...

The Bell Rock Hotel apartment is beautifully appointed 2 person accommodation. The flat is on the second floor and is accessed by its own external stairway. There are two large rooms. The bedroom has a king size bed and loads of room and its own TV. The living/kitchen area is also spacious and comfortable and also has a TV. The...

Back again for the umpteenth visit - welcomed by Manager with a 'Welcome Home' greeting! Never need to worry about standard at this establishment - 2 Star doesn't cover the quality, management, catering and general ambience and we can't wait for next year when we will return to relive our holiday.

We booked our stay in the Bell Rock relatively late in the season, and were grateful to Daniel, the Manager, for his help and patience in sorting out arrangements and answering our questions. Initial impressions on arrival were positive. We were greeted courteously, taken to our room, and made to feel genuinely welcome. The hotel is relatively small, and has...

We thoroughly enjoyed our five night stay in the Bell Rock hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Meals were very good and served promptly even though we were part of a group. Our room had all we needed. I especially liked the cushions and bed runner and (hallelujah!) there were two chairs. I would definitely stay there if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bell Rock Hotel has been welcoming guests for over 100 years - we look forward to your visit. We offer friendly, informal, attentive service, by caring staff. We are ideally situated in a level position, midway between Town Beach to the front and Porthcressa Bay at the rear. Both beaches are about 100 yards away! Our location is very convenient, quiet and central. Shops, entertainment and the museum are close by. The harbour is less than 10 minutes walk, with boats to Tresco, Bryher, St Agnes and St Martins daily in the season (subject to weather and tides). Our friendly staff will do everything possible to ensure your stay with us is relaxing and enjoyable. ... more   less

“Top floor rooms do have sea view but no lift makes this inconvenient for those less able. Rooms in long corridor more convenient and quiet.”
