There were not many hotels to choose... Dominica is a small country with only 72,000 people, they have 9 volcanos (3 of them active) and everything is surrounded by mountains. For nature lovers is the right place. In my opinion, the Fort Young Hotel is the number one there, but it was fully booked so I got Garraway, which was... More

On our trip to Dominica we had yo stay in a hotel for one night. The Garraway had vacancy, it was a great choice. The staff was very receptive, warm and friendly. We were checked in quickly, escorted to our room, which was very spacious. The hotel is located right on the water front, which is not a reflection of... More

Stayed at Garraway for two weeks. The only good thing was the breakfast which was overpriced and could be included in the stay package. A few of the front desk folks were out right rude. The executive suite was not really a suite ...none of the usual amenities ...have to carry a large key around And the front door closes... More

I stay for three nights and couldn't get another hotel since there was a big cricket tournament when I went and all of the other hotels were filled to capacity. The food was very good and local dishes were offered in the morning. Didn't eat lunch or dinner there. Was out during lunch and went around the corner at a... More

We were forced to stay here during a travel delay due to a cancelled flight, it was one of the only hotels which would accept the airlines voucher. While the hotel itself was OK, I have no idea why anyone would actually pick it given the other choices. It's right downtown next to the cruise ship dock. It's very busy,... More

Dominica unfortunately does not have any modern design hotels, Garraway is in the top 5 best on the island. Difficult to keep the noise from the city out of your room. Requires better maintenance. The hot water is lukewarm, but the cold is cold. Having stayed all over Roseau, it's a toss up really when it comes to accommodations. I... More

More of a business hotel than tourist, rooms are large and modern with fridge & kettle and most have a sea view. Good for sunsets, but you may wake up with a multi storey cruise ship outside your window as the dock is on the opposite side of the road. The staff were helpfull, I had not heard good things...

Thanks for your observations about our hotel which does cater for both the business and leisure visitor. We do not have a swimming pool but since we are so centrally located and pride ourselves on being the Nature Island of the Caribbean, we feel that most people love to enjoy our natural rivers, sulphur spas and beaches. We are able... More

The Garraway hotel enjoys a prime location on the Roseau waterfront offering gorgeous sunset views from its West facing aspect. It's clean and the rooms are spacious; bathrooms are OK but could use an upgrade -however the towels were quite new when I stayed recently which was a positive. The front desk is usually very helpful and the restaurant staff... More

November 2011. Our departing flight from Dominica was cancelled, and American Eagle sent us all back to Roseau to spend the night. We were sent to the Garraway Hotel. We all looked forward to some cocktails and dinner there, and a good night's sleep before returning to the airport early the next morning. The Garraway was busy; the young men... More

Ideally located on the waterfront, this hotel is too pricey for the level of service it gives. There is no wifi which was a major inconvenience to a business traveler. The room I was in was exceptionally spacious with a kettle and refrigerator, however there was no coffee or tea provided. There is much room for improvement if one has... More
