I spent 2 weekends at the champs, the staff is very friendly and the owners Hans & Liz make it a duty to interact with us throughout the day. It was a great experience, great food, especially the wood oven pizza. If you want somewhere to stay to experience the night light of Portsmouth, I would recommend The Champs.

What a great place! Lize was a wonderful host; the food was excellent; especially the oven baked pizza! Great bar & bar life with the Medical Students close by. Rooms were clean & roomy; great surge protectors for all my re-charging batteries. Huge bathroom; plenty of room to move around. Beautiful Views of the Caribbean and the Island of Dominica.... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Champs. It is a small, personable place. The staff and the generous spirit of its manager, Lise, make the place a "home away from home". The hotel is well located, with a beautiful view, although a little hard to get to if you don't have a car. Lise makes certain that you are... More

Nice hotel with a excellent view of the ocean-on hilltop . The food was excellent-they made special vegetarian breakfast for us. Staff was very courteous . The Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean- watching the sunset from in a Jacuzzi was something awesome.

Champs staycation deal was a steal! For one night (it can be longer but we're medical students) we only paid $50 US each for one of their superior rooms with an amazing view. It included a welcome drink, unlimited usage of their private jacuzzi, and breakfast the next morning. We were able to get away from school for a day... More

As a Ross University Alumnus, I returned to Dominica for a week 12 years after my original visit. I had the pleasure of staying at The Champs, a wonderful little bed & breakfast, nestled atop the hills overlooking Portsmouth. I felt as though I had been welcomed into Hans & Lise's home, a European enclave insulated from the rest of... More

Love this location and the service is outstanding....be sure and get to know Hans and Lise who will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The Champs is one of the best hotel venues on the island and their Sunday Jazz Brunches are not to be missed. You won't find a better menu as Chef... More
