The Old fort is certainly different being about10-15 mins outside Port Elizabeth by taxi or about 40 mins walking down ( considerable more to walk up!). The views are amazing,looking down the Grenadine chain of islands. Our room was spacious and the bed good. Tired looking furniture Erratic water supply Poor bedside lighting, missing tiles in bathroom all give an... More

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing Christmas dinner buffet at The Old Fort on December 17, 2015. The evening was spectacular. Food was great, the staff and management were warm and inviting. The evening finale, a band by the infinity pool overlooking Mustique, made the evening magic. We look forward to our return visit.

The Old Fort is an excellent location for a group gathering such as a Yoga retreat. It overlooks the sea and is truly beautiful. The rooms are one of a kind (there are only about 7 or 8). We were hosted by its owner Quirin who went out of his way on several occasions to make sure our stay was... More

This hotel is just a amazing place to relax. The old fort is a beautiful heritage building converted into a high-end boutique hotel. It was great just to chill at the Pool with the view on the surrounding islands. The estate it self is very well maintained with Palms and tropical flowers everywhere. But the most amazing thing were actually... More

Every year I keep coming back to the Old Fort because of the beautiful surroundings and friendly staff. All of the rooms are unique, so far I've stayed in the Petit Nevis and Honey Rooms and can't begin to describe all the inviting spaces with breathtaking views throughout the estate.

After a long journey from Germany, we finally arrived at the stunning and secluded Old Fort in Bequia. Not only were the staff and the hosts incredibly friendly but also made sure we were able to experience the beauty of Bequia and all the other islands of St. Vincent & the Grenadines. We didn't feel as if it was a... More

The Old Fort is not so much a hotel as a very picturesque and sympathetically built private hillside retreat. It's only a short taxi ride up the hill from Port Elizabeth, and just a 30 minute walk back down the hill to the stunning Princess Margaret beach or any of the welcoming places along the Belmont Walkway. Otman and Quirin... More

I stayed in the Old Fort Historic Estate in June 2015 and I have to say it was one of the best places I ever stayed in. It is located on top of a mountain so when waking up you have the perfect view over the ocean and landscape, it is just breath-taking and gives you the true caribbean feeling.... More

We spent 5 nights at the Old Fort at the end of May for our anniversary and couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Quirin and his staff (Michelle and Josiah especially) were incredibly accomodating, taking care of any need that came up from arranging a car rental to coming up with special menu requests. The setting is unbeatable with incredible... More

As the Caribbean is my destination of choice, I've been very fortunate to see quite a bit of it. On May 2nd 2015, I found a gem amongst the stones.On the small Island of Bequia, second in the chain of the Grenadine Islands, high on a hilltop, with the most incredible view lies The Old Fort.
