This was our third visit to Hell bay and it was still wonderful. The journey by boat to Bryher puts you in a relaxed frame of mind. The setting of the hotel is idyllic with a wonderful beach nearby and beautiful walks around the island. There are boats to other islands to explore everyday but you do need to plan... More

Have just returned from our honeymoon at Hell Bay. What a fantastic place. We stayed in Juno which is the top floor of the boat house with brilliant views across Hell Bay out to sea and was everything we wanted. The food was outstanding and the staff very friendly and exceptionally helpful. Went out on one night to the Crab... More

Top notch. Well trained, friendly and very helpful staff. The location is superb for just flexing, as a base for walking the island or for boat trips out to the other islands. This is on a very friendly island. Food at the hotel is excellent ... Changing menu each day with good local produce where possible. The Bryher lobster being... More

We arrived on Bryher, on the early boat from St Mary's. Along with the morning newspapers and the daily delivery of milk. The sky looked wild. The wind took our breath away. But the water alongside the jetty was crystal clear. And the golden sand could have been blown direct from any Caribbean island. The hotel 4x4 was there to... More

Our stay coincided with the tail end of Hurricane Bertha. As a consequence boat services to the other islands were suspended on the sunday. But being marooned on Bryher is no hardship, particularly when you're staying at Hell Bay! Quite lovely, and the most relaxing mini break imaginable.

Superb place to escape from the busy world, a place to relax, switch off, enjoy the excellent rooms, service and food. The whole stay was thoroughly enjoyable, an experience we will be repeating next year. We have stayed a couple of times now and still want to come back.

Although we only occasionally stay at the Hell Bay we are regular visitors to its bar and restaurant. The hotel, the food and the service gets better and better with each year and this year a special mention must be made regarding its staff who are superb. The quality of attentive but not 'over the top' service deserves recognition. Whether... More

Our second visit was just as good as our first 5 years previously. We did the usual 4 night deal but due to our indecision, as to where we would holiday at that time, unfortuantly couldn't have the room we really wanted. We ended up with room 31 which is huge - a balcony (unfortunatly we chose a windy time... More
