Fort Burt once guarded the mouth of Road Harbour. ( I have to guard my own mouth!) It was constructed by the Dutch, and later rebuilt by the English,, who annexed the islands in1672. Only the foundations remain now.

Do not expect any fort like in Funchal or in St-Martin or in Antigua as the fort became a restaurant with just 2 benches and this nice view over the road. But it is not worth to walk 2 kms or to take a bus from Tortola center to get to it, really not!

Stayed here after a sailing trip fro a couple of nights to explore Tortola. The hotel is built on the remains of an old Dutch fort which used to guard the harbor. The view over the water is excellent. The rooms are clean but basic, service is also good and the location is very good. Overall, I've stayed here on... More

We stayed one night here before getting on a charter at Conch Charters. This is a VERY basic hotel, which appears to have been little updated since the 1970s. It is cheap, not particularly clean but does tick the basic box for a low cost night. Please do temper expectations as not plush at all.

The hotel is very convenient for anyone needing to be in Road Town. Unfortunately the rooms are dated and the services spotty. The only redeeming factor is the great Restaurant/Bar that is attached to the hotel

Very reasonable rates and clean rooms. Rooms are a little dated but very clean and good pricing. Arrived after restaurant had closed but staff made us dinner and put it in our room refrigerator for our arrival. Food was absolutely great.

We ate here the night of our sleep aboard on a TMM yacht. It is right across the street. The food was average, but decent. The hotel and restaurant were clean and the service was very good. We would eat here again because of the location.
