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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

A great find! Really pleased to have stayed here after, admittedly, some trepidation having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. When I booked our trip to the Scilly Isles some eight months earlier in late January (thinking I'd have the pick of the accommodation), the Bell Rock ended up being our seventh-choice hotel as everywhere else was already fully booked....

Thank you for your review.
