Clean large room big comfortable bed. WiFi only in room not on the grounds or poolside etc. Nice pool and beach access. Good buffet breakfast. Good location. A/C too cold in the bar, restaurant and lobby areas. Would recommend this hotel.

Pleasant Atmosphere
Reviewed 4 days ago

The hotel is spotless. The staff courteous. I found the room to be small and made me feel claustrophobic. This hotel is considered a landmark. Quite likely one of the first in Nassau. Its is charming, The beach area is small and well maintained. The water is crystal clear. While on the beach you can view the cruise ships as they prepare to dock or leave port. The hotel is located downtown Nassau and the area is busy during the day. Stores close around 5 p.m. then the area becomes quiet. The night life in the area is limited.

Good location
Reviewed 5 days ago

This hotel has a colonial charm to it. It is quite a large building, right in the centre of Nassau. You can walk to the shops and restaurants with ease.
There is a nice size swimming pool area overlooking the sea, and the hotel has a nice private beach with aqua blue and pristine clean waters. On the right hand side you can see the massive cruisers that come and go every day. I didn’t find this distasteful, although some people might.
Right at this moment there is a brand new building being built next door, which makes a quiet time at the beach quite a nuisance. I certainly wouldn’t pay £300+ per night to stay in a hotel next to a building site.
The hotel has a nice breakfast room called Aqua. I had breakfast there and I must say the food was excellent.
There is a large gym and you can also enjoy kayaking and other water sports facilities provided by the hotel.
My bedroom was complete with all the amenities needed. The housekeeping was impeccable and they delivered fresh towels every day even though I didn’t need them. (I always hang them so they don’t have to replace them, however that was ignored).
There was no bottled water in the room, despite the fact that there is a coffee machine and the tap water is not suitable for consumption. So you need to buy your own water or ask at reception, which one of the receptionists told me “as a good Will gesture I will give you one this time”. I found that a bit cheap for a hotel of that category.
The view from my room was the worst I’ve had (photo number 5) although a couple of friends were staying there too and they had the nice sea view...it must be me!
The bed was very comfortable and the room was an ok size. In comparison the bathroom was bigger.

Classic old style hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

In the downtown area, lies this cool old hotel within walking distance of the straw market where you can get souvenirs galore!
There’s a nice clean beach (smallish) but big enough with a view of the cruise ships, and a convenient beach front restaurant and a lovely pool.
There’s a very modern gym that needs exercise mats, and nearby is a hammock in dire need of repairs.
Rooms are nice but water pressure is not great. Hint: ask about room size (they really vary), and so as to not wait a long time for a shower, maintenance told me to turn on the bath and sink at the same time as the shower and it gets hot quicker! It works!
There’s a very friendly staff too, so if you want to go to Atlantis (like Disneyland in my opinion), this isn’t the place for you. If you want a laid back place, it works well.
Last thing: there’s construction going on next door so there’s some noise by the beach.
