“Great hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We first stayed here last October. We usually stay at the Southampton, but we liked the Princess so much we came back and they did not disappoint. The staff is very nice and very helpful. the rooms in the Bermudian House are perfect. The restaurant is very good, so much so we ate there every night. We also had a resort credit as part of our package so that helped. We heard from another patron that they were going to start renovations of the entire property and make the salt water pool into an infinity pool. If that's true we will surely continue to come back here.

My wife and I had a fabulous time. The cleanliness of the hotel and the surronding grounds was greatly appreciated. That staff throughout the hotel was courteous and professional. I would like to single out Gina at the front desk, she was a great help., also E. Michael funny and entertaining. Wife and I took a picture with them for our scrap book. Can't say enough, FABULOUS!!!!

Another great stay. The staff on he gold floor always makes it a defining experience along with the fine decor.

Would recommend any hotel guest to experience the gold floor experience. The room views are all very nice

It's location so close to Hamilton makes it a must for any business travelor

Everyone at this hotel was amazing with their attention to detail and customer service. I really liked the location - walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in Hamilton. Hamilton is so neat and clean. I disagree that this not as good a location then the Fairmont Southampton for vacation. You have so many more options for food and entertainment here - The ferry service to the sister property was very easy, and we had access to the private beach over there, along with the AMAZING spa. But the other location is far away from any town, and WAY up on a hill - so once you are there, you have to take a cab to get anywhere else.

Mr. Bimms and his team in the Fairmont Gold lounge really made this trip especially special. It was my first time with the 'Gold' experience - I don't know if I can ever go back!

Visited in late August on a business trip. Good sized rooms, well decorated and very welcoming staff. Front desk, doormen and the lady in the coffee shop were extremely friendly and helpful.

Expensive breakfast, but an amazing selection of very fresh food.

Would definitely stay again, rates are expensive, but not out of line with other hotels on the island. Its a business hotel, so if you are on vacation you should probably stay at their sister hotel in Southampton - and the access to beach would be easier.

Room Tip: The hotel is made up of two buildings - if you are a female traveler, might be best to request a roo...

The Hamilton Princess was the perfect choice for our family's multi-generational trip to Bermuda.
It's not a bargain destination, but the high standard of service, beautifully maintained property, and proximity to Hamilton make this a very good choice.
The Princess is on the water but not near the beach, which means postcard-worthy views of the harbor and some extra planning required for beach-time.
The two pools are gorgeous, and there's a free ferry to the other Fairmont in Southampton(with access to a private beach and guest privileges there).
We appreciated the extra effort that the staff made to help us, with special help given to the oldest and youngest members of our group, and the food at the hotel's restaurants was very good.
We all agreed that we would be happy to return. It goes without saying that this was an expensive vacation, but that's a fact of life in Bermuda. At the Princess, we got what we paid for.

Just got back from our Bermuda trip, stayed at the fairmont in hamilton the staff were very pleasent all the time. I found the hotel to be very nice and clean. Emily who is a Concierge at the hotel was a great help even before we got there from quick e-mail returns to taxi cab rides from the airport. There are many places to stay in bermuda but you will want to stay close to Hamilton thats where most things are located.Food prices are high because it comes from the mainland be ready for that.....Before you take this trip and if you have never been to bermuda do your homework first. Its a lot of walking or taking the bus or taxis which can cost a lot.one thing to look out for is the cruse ships by St. george when they get off ship to take the ferry to hamilton they get off in the hundreds watch your ferry time table they dont run all day.

Room Tip: The more you pay the better it gets
