“Thank you for a wonderful time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Harry and Marlie Powell of the Kingston House are the best B&B hosts my wife and I have ever encountered. Their careful attention to detail, immaculate rooms, wonderful conversation, awesome pool and incredible yard make this an exceptional place to stay. Harry and Marlie do whatever it takes to make their guests feel welcome. We highly recommend the Kingston House B&B for anybody who appreciates the B&B experience.

I had the best vacation in years staying at the Kingston House. The B&B is just wonderful and I cannot say enough good things about it. Harry and Marlie Powell are the PERFECT HOSTS and they have a wealth of knowledge. Do not hesitate to book a stay here. It is just Great.

My friend and I recently had the opportunity to stay at Kingston House. The experience was delightful and positive from the very moment of our arrival. Marlie and Harry were kind, helpful, and hospitable hosts. As others have already commented, they went above and beyond to make us feel welcome.

The beautiful house itself was a thoughtfully organized and secure environment for guests. The room we stayed in, (Frangipani), was charming, clean, and comfortable.

Breakfast was plentiful and tailored to our preferences. (It was also lovely to meet and chat with other guests during the breakfast hour!)

I recommend Kingston House to adults looking for excellent, reasonably priced accommodations, along with wonderful personal attention.

I was vacationing with a close friend of mine in Bermuda for a few days, and we selected this place because it was within our budget, and we weren't interested in the "large resort" style experience- like at the "Princess Mayfair" or other beachfront resorts. One should note that the prices quoted on their website are "taxes included" so although you might see a lower base price for other B+Bs, the value for this stay was exceptional.

When we arrived, Marlie greeted us at the front gate and proceeded to give a thorough welcome introduction to the place, the area, and our plans for activities during our stay. I was quite impressed with the house- it is a two-story stone building that has a very charming and welcoming feel, impeccably clean, and with informational packets and books everywhere. We also were treated to a mini tour- Harry took us in his car around the downtown area, recommending restaurants as well as sightseeing opportunities.

The room was beautiful- we stayed in the Frangipani room- and it had a full bathroom, TV, all the amenities one would expect from a larger hotel. However- It felt like home! There is also a wonderful patio to sit out on by a small pool. For rainy days, the family has a large selection of books and DVDs available.

Breakfast was wonderful- Marlie treated us to her baking as well as offering a selection of delicious cereals and pastries, as well as her own home-roasted coffee. Breakfast was only from 8-9, and this provided a great opportunity to meet and chat with other guests and exchange stories.

I would definitely come back to this house- located about a 10 minute walk from central Hamilton. The stay with Marlie + Harry was memorable!

The only "bad" thing I can say about my stay at Kingston House last week was that it was way too short... Why, exactly are flights out of Bermuda all in the morning? While this was a very short (one-night) business trip, Marlie and Harry went out of their way to turn it into a mini-vacation for me. From driving me to the beach for a quick swim, to arranging a cab for my early morning trip to the airport, and preparing breakfast extra early for me, to inviting me to join them for dinner, brief history and cultural lessons on the island, and wonderful conversation, they are perfect hosts. The place is comfortable and inviting, fown to the hot towels and constant fresh pot of coffee (home-roasted beans daily), I could not have asked for more.

We stayed at the Kingston house at the end of may/beginning of june 2012. It was amazing from the start: we arrived at 10pm and Harry still offered us a tour around town. The house was always very clean and the hosts so friendly! (Digby too!) And the breakfast... amazing! We loved it so much (even my husband who was a little bit worried at first when he saw that Kingston house is a vegan place...). I have no negative comments, the breakfast moments with the other travelers were very nice. The beaches are amazing and not so far away (15 minutes in bus, the public transportation worked well for us but the scooter was so fun too!). Definitly our best trip, for our honeymoon it was perfect!

We booked at Kingston House based upon reviews at Trip Advisor, and it was simply delightful from arrival until departure!

The house has been in Harry Powell's family for a very long time, and as soon as we arrived, we felt as though we were staying in an old friend's home. It is exactly what you would expect for a home that has been in the same family for generations. There is little rhyme or reason to the layout of rooms, furniture has clearly been acquired over many years, and Harry is the perfect host. On one hand he has a completely laid-back approach with a "wear shoes if you want, or don't if you don't" attitude, but at the same time is incredibly thorough and efficient at showing his guests everything they need to make it a delightful stay. After showing us our room and the rest of the house, Harry offered us the "fifteen minute tour" of the city so that we would have a good starting point for our four days in Hamilton. Over the course of our stay we visited several of the places he recommended, and all were outstanding!

We stayed in the Jacaranda Room, which is right off the guest common area. We were initially a little concerned about noise, but that never was a problem, even with a full house. In fact, we left the door to our room open most of the time, which gave us even more a sense of being in a friend's home where we were free to do as we liked.

We were staying at Kingston House, while our extended family was docked at the Dockyard area on a cruise ship. Harry was incredibly helpful at recommending things that would appeal to all ages, making suggestions for transportation, rendezvous sites that were most convenient, etc., etc.

We wouldn't change and thing, and will definitely stay at Kingston House again whenever we return! I can't recommend this property highly enough
