“Delightful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Chose Hamilton for harbour location. If wanting beach, choose Southampton. This is a delightful hotel with beautiful gardens and harbour setting. Room was immaculate and well equipped. Very good location for visiting Hamilton town. Arrived the evening of wine tasting demonstration by visiting local so met local residents and visitors. Hotel organises similar events.

We arrived at the Fairmont in Hamilton for July 4th weekend and although they were extremely busy we were checked in with ease. This is a great property. Among the many wonderful things it has are, air conditioned lobby, taxi cab stand which i rarely waited more than 5 minutes for a cab, several restaurants, a gym, several stores inside the hotel, an outside pool that overlooks the water, its one block away from a wonderful supermarket called Miles where you can stock up on anything, its 3 blocks from town the bus depo and the ferry and finally my personal favorite the hotel has its own ferry service to the other side of the island and you ferry right into the South hampton Princess. The SouthHampton Princess is a lovely hotel with a wonderful spa, a beautiful indoor pool with waterfall, more indoor shopping, golf, tennis and is located on a great beach. As a matter of fact the beach right next to the hotel is Horseshoe Beach which is amazing. I also have food issues and a s soon as I mentioned it to the waiter at the South Hampton the chef came right out and was able to accommodate my food allergies as well as my need for gluten free foods. We had great weather while we were there and the one day it wained we spent the day checking out the shops, spa and gym. We will definitely be back.

Great location and lovely setting, this hotel is passed it's best though. Limited gym, expensive wi-fi and $50 charge for room to change in for late flight home. Disappointing and not good value for money.

Thank you for your review. Your understanding that we are undergoing a makeover is correct. Phase one will begin in November 2013 with anticipated completion in April 2014.
Phase one will include a renovation and restoration of the guestrooms and suites in the Poinciana Wing of the hotel, a new resort pool, the development of a new marina and enhancements to the infrastructure. Hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you in a not too distant future...Sincerely, AB

We're just getting ready to check out and are really sorry to leave. Although a little on the corporate side, the hotel offers everything you need. The boat service to the Hamilton in Southampton is great and the beach at Southampton is the best but we prefer to stay at the Hamilton which gives you access to a great selection of restaurants and bars.

You have to speak with E Michael, he was the former Mayor of St Georges and what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing. We made a booking for us at Little Venice and the owner, Emilio couldn't do enough for us - shame it was our last night as he had some great recommendations.

Our room was on the 5th floor overlooking the harbour, great views - you can even see the Fairmont in Southamtpon. Friday night happy hour is obviously the place to be, shame it ended at 9pm.

We will definitely come back and would stay here again,

From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty. Our room was in a perfect location. Taking the ferry back and forth to the beach was perfect. We had a great time at the Friday night happy hour,love to people watch. This is the best place to be in Bermuda close to everything.
You won't be disappointed

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!!!!
