Charming little guest house with only 5 rooms. Currently completing a makeover, rooms are small but comfortable. Furniture is basic but does the job. Wifi works very well throughout. Breakfast included. Not a wide choice but nicely cooked. You can make your own tea and coffee and use the kitchen fridge for storing cold drinks as there are no fridges... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, it would be pretty challenging to fit all the typical large Hotel features into our little guest :-) But I daresay you have all that you really need.! Forgive me for being so busy with the renovation that I couldn't give the personal attention I normally give to the various needs of guests. It... More

My husband and I spent one night at the hotel because we were on our way back from the North Coast of Trinidad and wanted to spend one night in Port of Spain before flying home the following day. I was able to arrange a half day tour and airport transfer through the very friendly and efficient hotel staff via... More

Dear Guests, thank you for taking the time to write your wonderful review. Just a slight correction, we do not serve hot-dogs except to kids. There were Polish Sausages..quite expensive in Trinidad. :-) Would love to have you back some day to see the new and improved Forty Winks. Upgrades are in progress in time for the Carnival festivities beginning... More

The staff is friendly at this Inn, and the owner is very helpful in telling about things to do in Port of Spain. The breakfast is lovely, and it is a true treat that the owner is there to cook it for you every morning. The location of the Inn is practical for a short stay in Port of Spain:... More

The rooms are comfortable and very clean with a yummy home cooked breakfast in the morning. In a good location, close to the Savannah and museums. Unfortunately lots of mosquitos in the lobby/breakfast area but thankfully not in the rooms.

Forty Winks is a really special little guest house. It is located in a business area of Port of Spain within walking distance of the Savannah, with a number of restaurants around. It is even less conspicuous from the street than the picture suggests - it is really a narrow little house on a narrow little street, but every bit... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, and also the kind remarks. The staff will be delighted to know that we made you feel welcome. Actually, the narrow little street, as you described it, is wider than most streets in the city! It can take 3 cars side by side. (:- More

I spent three nights at the Inn, and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is clean and very comfortable, and painted in bright, welcoming colours. As a single female traveller, safety was very important to me, and this hotel felt very secure. A 24 hour reception desk meant that front door was always kept locked by staff, and security chains were... More

Great location. Staff was very helpful with suggestions for sightseeing with a limited time frame, and with helping us get a lock off a suitcase for which we lost a key. Room was comfortable. Hotel was colorful and attractive. I found it odd that they did not have water available. I had to walk to a corner store to get... More

We had a wonderful stay at Forty Winks. The room was comfortable and clean. Forty Winks is close to many great restaurants, bars and a coffee shop with free wifi.
