Bryher is a tiny island in the Scilly archipelago, small enough to traverse on foot. Hell Bay in no way lives up to its name, being instead quite heavenly, a secluded, rocky cove that looks out over the Atlantic on the island’s west coast, and is the perfect location for a hotel as gently unassuming as this. Sea views and Cornish art abound, and the food is as much of a draw as the location. As you might expect, there’s sparklingly-fresh seafood aplenty on the menus in the Czar Restaurant (named after one of the island’s historic pilot gigs, a specifically Cornish type of rowing boat).
