On first arriving on admittedly a dull day, I was a little taken aback. The hotels shuttle bus had picked us and our luggage up from the quay all of half a mile away. The entrance porch and doors looked a bit shabby and rather than a hotel there was a collection of wooden buildings and a couple of ex... More

Dear David1309, Thank you for taking the time to review your with us. Our traditional Bryher cottage from the outskirt we do realise do not always look the most attractive but internally are beautifully decorated. Upgrading our bathrooms is an ongoing project. We are aware their standard isn’t always the same as other parts of the hotel. The addition of... More

I booked 2 nights here as a treat for my 30th birthday and wasn't disappointed. On arrival to the main island by plane there was already someone waiting with a minibus to take you to the quay where a boat was waiting to take you to Bryher and then the Hells Bay staff were waiting to collect you from the...

On the chill-out basis that 5 days on the Isles of Scilly equal at least 2 weeks anywhere else, we took a midweek break at Hell Bay Hotel. It was simply gorgeous. Our suite comprised a large, airy and beautifully but simply furnished main room with a comfy sofa and armchair, and great (twin) beds - I slept like a... More

We had the most wonderful three nights stay here. Everything about this hotel is just fantastic. The food is consistently excellent and every night we had a beautiful dinner with faultless service. The staff are so friendly, helpful and unbelievably well organised. There is such a lovely feel to the hotel not pretentious but comfortable and relaxed. It's a really... More

I love the Isles of Scilly, especially the off islands but in particular Bryher. Great for peace and quiet - although small there is good walking, lovely coastal views and walks, interesting bird life, and easy to get ferries to the other islands. BUT what really makes Bryher is the little stalls selling produce eg Veronica farm and fudge, Island... More

Dear Avocettoo, Thank you for writing a lovely review about Hell Bay Hotel and Bryher. We are very fortunate to have some lovely produce around the island as well as the honest stalls selling home grown goodies. The Emperor Suite is our top suite and does have fabulous surround views which we’re sure you enjoyed. It is unfortunate that as... More

I guess only a very small proportion of the UK's population has ever visited the Isles of Scilly. Which is a good thing because it keeps it special, and that it certainly is. If you want a temporary escape from the rat race these islands are the place for you; that said if you get panic attacks without a constant... More

Booked 4 nights here as a treat for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Arrived with very high expectations as we had considered it to be 'hellishly!' expensive compared to places we would normally book. However, we can honestly say that it was worth every single penny. The service was beyond compare and so friendly. The manager himself was making a point... More
