The Rosedon Hotel is a charming and comfortably elegant historic house/hotel. It is located on the quieter end of the main road. We found it to be perfectly adequate with some nice touches although it does not reach the level of what can be considered a luxury property. The PROS are it is pretty and cozy. The breakfast is ample and is served when and where you would like it. It is promptly delivered and is very good. Although the hotel is not located on the beach, the hotel pays for taxi service to Elbow Beach at specific times of day. The house itself is pretty and has a variety of sitting areas. Afternoon tea is served daily and is very popular. Most of the staff are very helpful and friendly. Some rooms have outside balcony area. There were fresh flowers around the hotel which was very pleasing. Mine did and I enjoyed my breakfast there on most days. The verandah is also quite lovely. The hotel hosts a mixer party with food and drink included. Walking distance to shopping, many restaurants and the ferry.
The CONS are that it is not beachfront if that is what you are looking for and they do not offer umbrellas or chairs to take with you to the beach. These can be rented on Elbow Beach but are quite expensive. On other beaches (Long Bay or Horseshoe Bay) the rental prices seem to be much less but the hotel transportation will only take you as far as Elbow Beach (12 min ride) and you have to get a moped (no car rentals in Bermuda) or take the bus (which is comfortable). The hotel taxi service to the beach only comes and goes a few times per day and if you like to go to the beach later in the day you are on your own. The biggest inconvenience for us was the very spotty Wi-Fi. The hotel should really consider installing a booster. We simply could not stay connected in our rooms but had better (though not great) connectivity in the sitting room downstairs. Afternoon tea is popular and they take some time to restock items as they go quickly and there is no consistent service (that I could see) clearing seating areas or assisting guests during the tea. I had to get my own milk from the pantry when it was out. If a staff member happens to see you need attention, however, they seemed happy to provide it. I thought the rooms were adequate although they could have been more luxurious (i.e. better linens etc) especially the bathrooms. My room safe was not in good working order.
