Great service Staff is really helpful and caring. Especial Shambula and Samantha in Sales and Catering. Hotel is clean however furniture in rooms could use a little updating. Location was perfect and in the center of downtown Nassau Bahamas.

This was our 2nd stay here - we brought our daughter on this trip. Had such a wonderful experience first time here. So, when we were assigned our room, we were very disappointed to find that, although good size room, we overlooked a construction site - not the Harbor View that we had booked. As we were staying here4 nights... More

Love the hotel and the extras provided by the hotel at no extra charge such as the Kayak, bikes, beach toys for my 4 year old, and snorkeling equipment. However, The Government of the Bahamas has all these taxes that makes a trip to the Bahamas feel like you are getting robbed. You have $17 per person, per night electricity... More

Attended a banquet organised for a local celebration. What a beautiful place. Colonial in style indeed. However the Beach is amongst the worst in the Bahamas and compares only to poor polluted beaches in the UK

Staying at the British Colonial Hilton is a pleasure because of the beautiful private beach, pleasant, helpful staff and convenient location. We walked to great restaurants, shopping and needed taxis only for going over to Paradise Island. The housekeeping staff always made us feel that special requests were "no problem" and the buffet breakfasts were a real treat.

I use a manual wheelchair, so I was - overall - very pleased with the accessibility in the hotel lobby, on the grounds of the hotel (wide, flat, paved walkways are easy to negotiate), in our room (#247), and at...
