The journey sounded a little daunting until we found out the hotel could organise everything. They did and all went smoothly with an efficient taxi airport pick up and transfer to the quay on St Mary's for the ferry, and finally on the island the hotel mini bus completed the final leg of the journey. We found this a very... More

Although helped by being part of the best place on earth, this hotel is impeccable. Glorious rooms, outstanding food, delightful staff, immaculate, peaceful, the best on the islands. I've been coming to scilly for 4 decades and know all the hotels but this one is by far the best. But... Sssshhh don't tell anyone else!

Spent the day walking on Bryher with a lunch stop at Hell Bay. Good lunch and a good choice all reasonably priced. Lovely setting with pleasant and helpful staff. Our first visit to Isles of Scilly and certainly not our last!

Had a very special 4 day break. Everything was great, and we couldn't fault anything about the hotel. The hotel arranged the flights and the transfers to the hotel which made it all so easy. The staff are all very helpful and welcoming and the food was delicious. We will definitely visit again in the future.

Returned yesterday evening from a 2 night stay at Hell Bay. From booking to return home everything went like clockwork - most impressed. Flights and transfers arranged by hotel were relaxed and efficient. Our room - 3 "Nornour" was delightful, a sitting area leading to the lawn with the beach beyond. Even the sparrows were finger tame, and we were... More

This is such a lovely hotel and four nights was certainly not enough. As Isles of Scilly regulars, this place epitomises everything that is so magical about the islands - wonderful views, great food, well run and with the warmest of welcomes. And this year, we tried out the crab shack too - the freshest seafood in characterful surroundings and... More

We have stayed at the Hell Bay Hotel on many occasions for a special treat as it is always so enjoyable. This time we were accompanied by two first time guests and this latest stay was no exception !

We have stayed at Hell bay several times but this year was really perfect: good food, excellent housekeeping and Cassandra on reception who really made us feel welcome. A good but amusing aspect of this hotel is the welcome letter addressed to your dog - a lovely way to make valid points.
