Other Information

Hotel

2* Bell Rock Hotel, St Mary’s

The most southerly hotel in England, the Bell Rock Hotel is located just a short walk from Porthcressa beach and the harbour. En-suite bedrooms have a TV, radio, hairdryer and tea/coffee facilities. The hotel offers a heated indoor pool, bar, lounge and dining room.

This is a historical building built over 100 years ago with eight steps leading into the entrance of the hotel. Due to its age, guests will encounter steps throughout including the ground floor, with a limited number of easier to access rooms, which will still involve some steps. There are no adapted rooms and owing to the layout and subsequent steps, the hotel is not wheelchair friendly.  The Bell Rock does not have a lift.

Location

The Isles of Scilly are outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt. Consequently, you will find that the destination does not offer the same facilities as on the mainland and guests will need a level of mobility to access the ferry and enjoy the islands. Guests will encounter gradients and rough terrain.
