3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights, half board in an ocean view room. Very average room, nice view though but only if the cruise ship isn't blocking it. Staff were fairly unhelpful, got the impression they didn't want to be there. Food was OK but on a half board package we would expect to be able to eat what we liked off... More

We had a good room, sea view deluxe or something like that. At 300 dollars a night, it should have been though. Phoned days to arrange an early checking so our toddler could get a nap. A pointless exercise as the snooty reception staff appeared to know nothing about this and did not facilitate it in any way. Food OK... More

Stayed 5 nights. Walking distance from the ferry. Had trouble finding the main entrance and reception area from the ground-level. Our room was in the old building near the busy road. Small, noisy and no seaview, but we enjoyed the colibri-trees near our balcony. Safebox in the room, but the room security was very low. The door-locker was nearly prehistoric!... More

We stayed for 3 nights while scuba-diving and hiking in the park. Roseau is the best place to stay for these activities, and the Fort Young Hotel is the best accomodation option. It's quite an attractive hotel with large rooms and great balconies that face the sea: a perfect place to watch the sun go down. Unfortunately, cruise ships were... More

I arrived at the Fort Young Hotel very late in the night due to the inefficiency of Liat Airlines. Although the restaurants and bar were closed they made food for me as I had not had dinner, accompanied with wine. I was truly grateful as the trip there was exhausting. I discovered that Liat is NEVER on time. I arrived... More

We stayed in the Fort Young for three days in January 2013. No ocean view rooms were available, so against the advice of TripAdvisor reviewers we stayed in a "fort" room. We were expecting the worst, but other than the fact that we had to shower in the dark, due to no lights in the shower stall, we had no... More

We needed to stay in Roseau for a night before taking a ferry to Martinique and this hotel fit the bill. Nice clean room with amazing views. Complimentary bottles of water and a cool washcloth upon checking in. Free internet attracted a lot of people from the cruise ship to the lobby bar. The hotel is a few blocks from... More

I was very skeptical about staying anywhere in Roseau after experiencing or seeing some of the fine lodges and guest houses on offer in the countryside, but I stayed at Fort Young twice and each occasion has been just perfect when doing business in Roseau. The rooms are very well appointed. They could be kept a bit cleaner, especially the... More

The hotel does not deserve 3 stars. My rating of them is 2.5 stars. So, where to begin? Well, I had to stay for 5-6 days in Dominica on a important business meeting. Since , their are no famous chains of hotels in Dominica, this is one of the most famous. options. Their were other options as well, when I... More
