Hotel is pleasant enough. Only stayed for one night but found the hotel to be friendly and clean throughout. My room was of good size and with a decent shower. Situated in Hugh Town, its a great location and I would defiantly stay here again given the choice.

Really pleasant hotel, ideally placed for two beaches both a 5 minute walk away. Both of us are well into retirement, but luckily quite fit, as there are plenty of sights to be seen, but to get to Tresco Abbey Gardens, a boat trip is necessary, and the walks around the gardens can be a difficult if you are mobility...

I went over to the Scillys for work and stayed at the Bell Rock for 3 night's. Daniel and his team were warm, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was clean and comfortable and it was refreshing to see hotel staff working together as a team.

We had room 23 on ground floor - sandwiched between kitchen and rubbish bins at back of hotel. Bad smell from kitchen as access from front of hotel was past kitchen. In summary very overpriced for the facilities we got. From outside very impressive with loads of character but once inside tired and old fashioned.

It is a real shame you feel you have to review us in this way. Your booking was made on late availability on an offer B&B tariff.

Enjoyed another stay at the Bell Rock hotel. Our friends accompanied us and were suitably impressed. Food excellent. Room very comfortable although warm, but this may have been as a result of the morning sun directly onto room. Minor gripe plug in sink basin reluctant to stay closed.

Hotel well placed for St Marys and the harbour for boats to other Islands. Hotel pleasant without being too upmarket, rooms clean and fresh, breakfast was good and evening meal not bad but choice was limited. Small bar for drinks and staff were attentive and friendly. Shower bath a bit primitive but functional
