Resort on the water
Resort with a good view of Hamilton Harbour. Spacious room with oven and fridge. The staff was attentive. Infinity pool and hot tub were clean. Had issue with having only one cable channel for two days. Screen slide comes off track. Tree frogs make noise all night long.
Great views and suite
King suite #571 , top floor, great patio space and sunset views! Great tub. The free resort shuttle only leaves a.m. and then evenings. So cannot really use for lunch trip to Hamilton wo taxi back. Could usually only utilize ferry for one way. Was rather frustrating. Resort restaurant very expensive. Bought groceries to fix majority of meals. Resort fees, tax,etc runs Resort bill higher. Very costly to visit Bermuda.
Newstead Blue Hills Hotel and Blu restaurant
Very nice facility with great view of the water from large balcony. Large and well-appointed room but with several minor but irritating glitches in the room, like dead bulbs, broken light switch on lamp, sink drain inoperable, etc. that should not happen at this price point. Gorgeous infinity pool. On site restaurant serves great breakfast but very formal for other meals. You are not in Hamilton, but there is a free shuttle ferry that gets you to Hamilton in AM hourly and in late afternoon, hourly, but not in the middle of the day. One real downside is that the ferry does NOT operate on Sat afternoon or at any time on Sunday. This leaves you really isolated, except for expensive taxis. This was a major disappointment. There is very little around. They do offer a free shuttle van ride to and from the nearby Belmont Hills golf course, where there are two restaurants. One, called Divots, is quite informal, with a good varied menu and the food was very good at a reasonable price. The other one, called BLU is beyond pretentious and overpriced (e.g. your wine bottle cannot remain at or near your table; It spoils the ambiance of the dining room). I saw a woman dare to put her light spring coat over the back of her chair and they descended on her as though she had shot the king, pulling the coat away against her wishes - nuts!!) Not very friendly at all. Food was good but not exceptional enough to outweigh the unpleasant vibe of the place. Definitely pass on BLU.
Best food and lovely view
We went here twice, both times for lunch. The menu is very interesting, and the food is fabulous. The wait staff are friendly and efficient. We sat out on the patio with a view of downtown Hamilton. Also looking out to the islands and over the infinity pool. If you go, be sure to order their chocolate soufflé when you order your lunch, as it takes a bit of time to prepare. But definitely worth the wait!
Great room, Good Location, Inconsistent service.
Had a one bedroom suite, with kitchenette facilities, large living space, great balcony with views across to Hamilton and extra large comfy bed. Since eating out hugely expensive, eating in, on alternative nights worked a treat.Take some duty free alcohol with you as very expensive in hotel. $15 for a beer, $6 for a can of coke and $20 for a gin and tonic. Gail who cleaned the room was a special lady. Location is great and the only drawback is that taxis do not like taking fares as it is a short trip to Hamilton, Elbow Beach etc, even though the fare is $20. We waited over an hour for a taxi to come and collect us after dinner at Lido at Elbow Beach. In the end the manager of Lido had to take us back. For this reason, you need a fantastic service of the in house shuttle and taxi booking by the front desk. This was a very frustrating experience. they were brilliant booking restaurants, golf etc before we arrived. Absolutely faultless. However, when we got there they would forget to book the taxi, and tell the shuttle driver to collect us, which meant that the two times we played golf at Belmont Hills, we had to wait an hour for the shuttle and had to make a number of calls. On each occasion the driver admitted that he was at the hotel, but was not informed by the staff that we had called for a pick up. We were not alone with this problem and was the biggest gripe from the other residents I spoke to. It is not difficult to get this service right, but absolutely a necessity to do so. The return journey was always the issue, though we almost missed a prepaid boat trip when the taxi was 30 minutes late. We had an inclusive breakfast deal and the waitress told us that we could only order some of the items on the breakfast menu. Luckily we found stuff on the limited choice but since they were all priced the same with maybe $5 extra for the Eggs benedict was it really necessary to exclude them. A smile would go a long way as well. So whilst it is good, it could be much much better, and it would not take much to make it a great experience.
