If I had to come back to Bermuda, I'd certainly try to stay again at Kingston House B&B. Everything in this homey place is carefully taken care of and the owner's hospitality makes you really feel at home. Their price is notouriously affordable in such an expensive place like Bermuda and their location is in walking distance from city centre.... More

We're glad you felt at home here and appreciate your compliments about caring for the B&B and our guests. We're lucky to be on such a quiet, leafy lane and so close to all the action in Hamilton...now that you know how quick and easy it is to get here, we hope you'll come back often! All the best, Harry... More

My best friend and I have been coming here every year for four years now. The family is pretty much our family now! My friend and I are quite well-travelled, yet our hearts belong to Bermuda. And a large part of that is because of Kingston House. Note that it's still a ways out of Hamilton proper, in a residential... More

You're right scooters are probably the ideal way to get around the island--go wherever, whenever you like whilst sniffing the breezes and working on your tan! If you're with a group of people, then taxis are really cost effective and convenient. A number of taxis also do tours (on very reasonable hourly rates), which is a great way to see... More

We spent 3 nights here last week in the Palmetto Suite. The bed and shower were great and we liked having the extra space. Breakfast was very nice with healthy choices. We enjoyed having Digby around as we missed our dogs. Location was quiet and the walk into town took about 10 minutes. The road could be a little intimidating... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. Digby thanks you, too. A lot of us find it tough to be away from our furry friends when we travel. Digby has never known anything but B&B life and adores our guests--you know that you belong to the 'pack', when an orange ball is gently placed at your feet! We look... More

Kingston House feels like a second home. I have returned from a week's stay at the Powell's B & B and feel refreshed, rested and inspired. Their bed and breakfast (and beyond) is an experience I hope return to again and again. Each day my friends and I enjoyed a healthy breakfast in the gorgeous dining area that included a... More

The pleasure was entirely ours--it's always great to see our intrepid explorers get out there and try new adventures! We were well impressed with your ocean kayaking expedition, hiking the railway trails (head to wind) and then there was that refreshing swim in the Cathedral Cave...

I just got back from my second trip with friends to Bermuda (and my second stay at Kingston House) and had an amazing time, again!

It was great seeing you again and wonderful to know that you had a nice time on the island even when the weather disrupted some of your plans. Hopefully, you will be able to go whale-watching next time you come! Thank you so much for taking the time to review us on TA. We look forward to seeing you again... More

I stayed at Kingston House for two nights on a whistle-stop trip to Bermuda. Kingston House is a great choice for accommodation in Hamilton. I prefer staying at local hotels or B&Bs when I travel rather than at chain hotels, and this makes even more sense in Bermuda, where hotel rooms are very expensive. Marlie and Harry are excellent hosts... More

It's one of the best places I stayed in. Our room was quite spacious, and whole place was very clean. Very healthy, quality food for breakfast. Good location - not far from Hamilton where buses and ferries can take you everywhere on the island. But most importantly - lovely people. Marlie was very helpful with day to day trip planning...

Thanks you so much for your kind review--it was a fun visit! Bermuda is warm and friendly from one end of the island to the other and it's great you got to see a lot of it.

Kingston House is a wonderful find, a charming1920s house with modern amenities. We stayed in the Palmetto Suite, which was cozy and very functional (good seating and lighting, a table for working, cable TV, a comfortable bed). The downstairs living room, with microwave, dishes and an assigned place in the fridge, gave us a lot of flexibility for meals. We... More

The B&B/small Inn experience and using public transportation and walking everywhere certainly gives you a more authentic experience. Bermuda is very picturesque and the people warm and friendly--you find that everywhere here. We're very glad you found your way to Kingston House and we hope you will find your way back often--it was wonderful meeting you both...see you next time!... More
