Arrived by Skybus from Lands End. Transport arranged by hotel worked perfectly - we were met at airport, taken to the ferry and met on arrival at Bryher by the owner. The return arrangements were equally flawless. The hotel is not actually on Hell Bay but a little further south (actually a much better position for a hotel) The views... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Hell Bay Hotel. We are always pleased to receive positive feedback. It is great to hear that our representatives on St Marys helped to make the transfer between the two islands as seamless as can be. More

We have been coming to Hell Bay for a number of years and have always had wonderfuld stays. The staff, service, accomadation and food are always perfect and our visit in Septmeber for my mothers 80th birthday was wonderful. We will continue to return to this amazing spot where a five day break feels like a months rest!

Returned here to our favourite hotel and location. It's a special place and staff try hard but overall lack the style that the price should command in terms of attentive service and care. Pool area grubby and unkept. Evening dining overall was excellent. Breakfast ok but poor and sometimes tired presentation. The location and tranquility remains stunning. Good service in... More

Who could not fail to be enchanted by this hotel, it has everything going for it? Getting there is suitably difficult to add an element of adventure but not too difficult to make it seem a burden. Once you have managed to escape the fog on mainland UK and arrived on St Mary's it is painless to get on the... More

A beautiful looking spot, gardens and property superbly maintained. We sat in the gardens, a good glass of wine and a 'small portion' of their wonderful rich fish soup more than needed for my lunch ! The full portions were enormous..Good appetites necessary! Very reasonably priced for the quality. Might choose to stay here for a few days during my... More

We had heard good things of this hotel and location and it more than matched them in every way. Although we had a difficult trip getting there; our flight was cancelled due to the weather and we had to go by sea the following day; the hotel more than made up for this disappointing start. It was fabulous in all... More

We arrived on the beautiful island of Bryher 24 hours later than planned due to fog, but in the end this was a bonus! We contacted the hotel when we knew our flight - and all others on the day- was cancelled and asked if we could extend a day so as to still have 4 nights. We had a... More

This was our second stay at the Hell Bay, our first having been a couple of years ago as part of our honeymoon. It’s still just as wonderful. Staying on Bryher is always special, but staying at Hell Bay is something else. It is expensive – really, really expensive – but you enter a bubble of understated, unpretentious luxury and... More

My husband, son and I recently stayed 3 nights at the Hell Bay Hotel. The hotel is cute and somehow reminds you of being at the Bahamas. However, we travelled with our 16months old son and this place is not ideal. Firstly the pool was dirty and cold. The spa looked like something that might have been nice in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Since you stayed we have taken on board the comments from yourselves and others. We have improved the breakfast buffet, having a fresh fruit basket as well as a selection on sliced tropical fruits. We realise when travelling with children, families do like to dine together.
