The staff and management do their utmost to make their clients stay enjoyable. Lise the owner and manager has charm combined with a good sense of humor that enhances the whole atmosphere of The Champs. Great place to stay in if you want to get away, enjoy amazing views and just totally relax.

The location was nice, away from the noise from the streets etc . the staff exceeded my expectations from check in up to check out. The room was very cozy and comfortable and the amenities were up to date. Breakfast was delicious indeed. I would love to come again to stay at this terrific little hotel

We came to Dominica for the cricket and a holiday but had to stay at The Champs because we couldn't get accommodation in Roseau and I'm glad that happened!

A great little inn on a hill with gorgeous views and wonderfully friendly staff (who will do anything for you). Delicious breakfasts. They were really helpful in getting us to diving class and helping with a flat tire (beware drivers in Dominica the road from the airport can be a bit challenging for a US city driver)

The Hotel was as advertised. Sits on a steep hill overlooking the Caribbean with a beautiful 180 degree view. It is a long drive through the jungle, along the ocean & over the mountains from the Airport, we recommend having Lise set up the Taxi for you, they bill it to your room. Our room had a great balcony view... More

Remarkable view, cozy, great food, great bar. Fantastic host. Shuttle will take you and pick you up wherever you need to go. Centrally located makes it ideal for family visiting Ross University students. Beach just minutes away with bar and restaurants(for persons with Ross guest passes). Wi Fi with good speed.
