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. My husband and I enjoyed walking from the Inn to Queens Park Savannah, and then on to the zoo and the botanical gardens. We were also within walking distance to... More

Thanks to those who recommended this place to me. I visited the Forty Winks Inn priory to my trip to Japan and i could not have asked for a more home setting than this. The staff are so lovely they were like my family. The time was well spent. Keep doing the good that you are doing.

I stayed at at this inn for 4 nights with my 7 year old son. The best thing about the inn is Karen. My son fell in love with her warmth and we had a lovely stay. Breakfast was delicious and we would recommend this inn to anyone. My stay was very economical because Karen advised on using the public... More

Great location close to the Savannah. Comfortable, clean, great breakfast each morning. Had a relaxing stay and restful sleep. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooftop terrace was a pleasant place to relax. Would definitely stay at 40 Winks again...and would love to go back to Trinidad!

Used Forty Winks as a matter of convenience as I was visiting Port of Spain. Had a few late nights and wanted somewhere I can get to in a short time. Came in handy as well during the day for a quick refresh point as the city gets hot and humid. Room was neat and clean. Bathroom worked perfectly, albeit... More

Stayed here two nights as a stopover between countries. Rooms are basic but clean with very good shower, slightly on the small side though. Beautiful roof terrace, good breakfast included in price. Staff are the best part, always willing to help and look after you. Walking distance to anywhere in central Port of Spain. Would recommend if looking for a... More

Great place with very good location and very nice, helpful staff. The terrace was very nice, especially in the evening with a little lights and the atmosphere. We enjoyed cheese and wine. The room was clean and cosy. They noticed my food allergy too and I got gluten free breakfast.
