“Absolutly first class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We first sayed there 20 years ago and thought it was wonderful. We returned three years ago and and felt the same way. This hotel is the epitom of small hotel luxury in every way.

Add to this the amount of well traveled interesting people who return there time and time again who would not think of staying anywhere else on the island of Bermuda.

Will go there again soon we hope.

Just back from a week in the Rosedon, and it's a fantastic little hotel. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, and the breakfast each morning was great. Location is perfect, 5 minutes from Front Street Hamilton so close to restaurants, shopping and bus and ferry terminals. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for one night in July whilst on a business trip.

As I was here for such a short time, it's difficult to give a detailed review, however...

The room was extremely spacious and very nice. The hotel is a short walk to the financial district so perfect if there on business.

Breakfast was a little strange, there isn't a choice (or at least we weren't offered one) and you eat in this little room that has two tables in it - quite bizarre.

Apart from that the staff were wonderful and I'd definitely go back for business purposes.

Thank you for this good review. We are happy that you found your room 'spacious and nice'. Our location is perfect for the business traveler. We are sorry you found our breakfast to be 'bizarre'. We do offer options in the menu and also where it is served. As we do not have a formal dining room, breakfast is served in the room, by the pool or on our magnificent front porch. We apologise that you were not fully apprised at check in.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next business trip and hope you get to stay longer.

We recently visited the Rosedon and what a gem this place is. You can stay at a large resort and expect to have a typical stay. The Rosedon offers a warm, comfortable atmosphere that is hard to find. When you walk down into the pool area you feel like you stepped into the garden of Eden, simply beautiful. The location is wonderful too, Close to transportation, shopping and fine dining. It is very quiet too despite the closeness to downtown. There is also a scooter rental shop within walking distance. I can't wait to return to the Rosedon for 4 O'clock tea!

Thank you for this great review! We are so happy you enjoyed the comfortable, warm atmosphere we try to create.
Your compliments on our gardens too are much appreciated. They truly are amazing and your comparison to the 'garden of Eden' is a good one.

We would love to welcome you back one day so you can enjoy our afternoon tea!

The staff at the Rosedon Hotel is exceptional and will do anything within their power to help make your stay perfect. We feel like we are staying with family; and no matter what we were out doing always seemed to gravitate back to the Rosedon for the afternoon teas.While I can't drink my husband enjoys Tuesday evenings, "Rum Swizzler" night and the entertainment and hor d'ouerves. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning and the staff flexibility in make some substitutions and/or additions. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Proximity to town and restaurants is great. Less than a block to the gourmet Miles (?) Market across the street for a few extra drinks, snacks or necessities; Several restaurants are close by, Harry's, Fairmont Princess Restaurants, Bouchers, and a new Sushi restaurant, etc. Close to the ferry station and bus stops; also easy to get a taxi, either request the front desk to get one or just walk across the street to the Fairmont Princess where the taxi's line up. We definitely enjoyed our stay and were able to relax and just enjoy our break from daily life.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Rosedon Hotel. Due to Hurricane Sandy, our stay was extended from 3 nights to 6. The longer we stayed, the more I appreciated what a special place it is. If you're looking for something glitzy, then you're better off at the Hamilton Princess. But if you're looking for a place that will make you feel at home, you can't go wrong with the Rosedon Hotel. The location is a short walk to town and lots of restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the grounds were beautiful. We looked forward to a nice breakfast and afternoon tea on the porch each day.

Recently returned from the beautiful island of Bermuda, and surely we must have been staying in the best hotel, with very spacious, comfortable rooms in the big house. Fantastic breakfast and afternoon tea included in price. Attentive staff. Gorgeous gardens with pool. Close to Hamilton for transportation, restaurants and shopping.

Room Tip: No fitness room, cannot erase the "terrible" rating
