Super staff, lovely room (Studio overlooking the bay), great food and a view to die for. We spend a lot of time travelling and stay in a lot of hotels and this was a sheer delight. It is beautiful, without being pretentious, and the staff have the balance right between professional and friendly. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated and... More

This is one very special place. The staff are friendly and helpful while remaining very professional. Our room, an upstairs high tide suit, was fabulously comfortable with lovely views. The evening meals in the restaurant were real culinary masterpieces, an excellent wine list - breakfast was delicious too with a good choice. The transfers from Tresco and later on to... More

Everything was wonderful as usual! Have booked for a fourth year. Bryher is a unique location and so is the hotel. The rooms are charming and very comfortable and clean. All the staff are attentive and friendly, yet discreet.

The set up for dinner was exceptional. The food came out without delay, the courses were just the right size. The food itself was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and approachable, the venue itself was a delight to behold. The ambience was that of a relaxed hotel, the decor was well selected and the setting... More

Bryher is a fantastic rugged little island combining lovely little sandy beaches, dramatic cliifs and beautiful views of Tresco and Samson. This was our 3rd visit to HellBay and the service is still excellent, we were picked up from the airport and taken down to st marys port. As the tides were very low we had about 90 mins before...

Hell Bay hotel is on the west coast of Bryher in the Scilly Isles. We stayed for 3 nights on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis. Our room was a double en-suite (our adult daughters had an adjacent and connecting room). There was a small balcony and spectacular views directly out to the beach and sea. The room was very...

We had a lovely lunch here overlooking beautiful turquoise waters. Delicious and generously portioned white crabmeat sandwiches for less than £10- excellent value. We would come back if on Bryher in future. We didn't stay here as guests but it looked a beautiful place to stay.

This was our 4th visit and to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary we decided to opt for room 31,a large suite across the garden with lovely sea views. Unfortunately we missed a day due to flights being cancelled because of fog but it was no trouble for the hotel to sort out our travel the next day. From being picked... More
