We stayed at Champs for 3 nights. Clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was included and was excellent. There is a restaurant on site and the food and service was good. Being located at the top of a hill, there was a fantastic view of Portsmouth and the ocean at all times. i would reccomend it.

The view of Dominica from high up on the hill at The Champs was gorgeous - upon arrival I immediately took a nap in one of the hammocks provided on the patio while staring out over the lush landscape towards the ocean. So relaxing! The room was clean and comfortable, although we wished there had been 120V electric outlets installed... More

The island of Dominica remains an undervisited gem in the Caribbean and if you go there it is worth staying in Portsmouth in the north as well as Roseau in the south. The Champs is a good base near Portsmouth from which to tour the north of Dominica. It is a small, friendly guest house like hotel, situated up a... More

We were well taken care of and all needs were met with friendly personal service. We were given a phone which really came in handy and food was wonderful. When we missed breakfast the staff offered to make something just for us. The hotel is beautiful, relaxing, and cozy. A truly unique experience.

Hans and Lise, along with the entire staff, are incredibly accommodating. They all work very hard to ensure your visit to their hotel and the island of Dominica is all that you want or need it to be. They are very knowledgeable and helpful in arranging any type of activity that the island has to offer.
