Tucked away in a secluded cove facing the Atlantic Ocean on the beautiful, rugged island of Bryher, Hell Bay is the highest-rated hotel and restaurant on the Isles of Scilly.

Hell Bay's secluded setting on the tiny island of Bryher is complemented by beautifully tended and expansive grounds, a heated outdoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, Treatment Shed, yoga studio and the beach right on the doorstep.
The highest-rated hotel and restaurant on the Isles of Scilly, Hell Bay holds the coveted Four Red Star AA ‘Inspectors’ Choice’ award, whilst the restaurant has been recognised with 3 AA Rosettes.
Scattered throughout the grounds, the hotel's 25 rooms and suites enjoy garden or ocean views across the wild and rugged coastline that lend the hotel its name, with each enjoying a private terrace or balcony. Every suite is beautifully appointed with Lloyd Loom furniture, Egyptian cotton bedding and artwork by some of Cornwall's leading artists.
The inspiring artwork continues throughout the hotel bar and restaurant, where you can enjoy award-winning local food or simply a leisurely drink on our sheltered terrace or curl up with a book in our lounge. For a truly unique experience, The Crab Shack serves a simple menu of Bryher crab, mussels and scallops in a rustic old barn, whilst the Sunset Deck is the perfect spot for a romantic sundowner as the sun dips into the ocean.
For those seeking relaxation, our sheltered outdoor pool terrace is the perfect spot to while away a warm summer's day, whilst our Treatment Shed, small Jacuzzi, sauna and gym offer a blend of active relaxation. Of course, sitting on the doorstep is the beautifully rugged island of Bryher with its inspiring clifftops, beaches, coast paths and peaks for walking, running or simply sitting and soaking in the view.
Bryher’s closest neighbour is the island of Tresco, where you can find the famous Abbey Garden in addition to award-winning eateries and the Tresco Island Spa. Tresco is owned by the Dorrien Smith family, who also own Hell Bay Hotel.
