“The best little B&B in all of Bermuda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I have been visiting Bermuda for 40+ years and Kingston House is far and away the best place I have ever found for a truly relaxing vacation. The attention to detail that Marlie and Harry provide leave you with nothing on your mind but unwinding day after day. If Kingston House were a book it would be the story of a l00 little nice touches that add up to a wonderful stay. From the amazing breakfasts to the fresh flowers in your room to the always available computer, the nice touches were everywhere. The quiet street only added to the ambience and yet so near to everything. Best wishes to the Powells and may they show others in the local hospitality business how to provide top of the line service.

Last year, I stayed at Kingston House B&B as it seemed to afford the best facilities for the best price. This year, I once again chose Kingston House because, frankly, why would I want to stay anywhere else? And next year, when I return, there will be no question about where to stay.

Returning to Kingston House this year felt like returning home, especially as I once again stayed in the Jacaranda Room. Since last year, some improvements have been made, such as a bigger area to prepare food in the Guest Lounge as well as a new, very clever water cooler which extracts water out of the air for either hot or cold drinks. The rooms have also benefited with the replacement of the old tubs with new, modern showers.

What hasn’t changed is the warm, friendly welcome you will receive from Harry and Marlie (and Digby, the resident dog), the wealth of knowledge about the island they are eager to share with their guests around the breakfast table, the delicious options available for breakfast (including superb home-roasted coffee), the offer of rides into the City of Hamilton, availability of beach towels and mats and the knowledge that the hosts want you to truly experience the Bermuda they are proud to call home.

You can stay at any hotel to experience the beauty of Bermuda but to really get a sense of what makes it such a magical island, stay at Kingston House Bed & Breakfast.

The house is located in a very quite area (residential road in hamilton).
It's only 5-10 minutes walk from the scooter rental store, 10-15 minutes walk from the Ferry Terminal and Front Street and 15-20 Minutes from the Bus Terminal.
It's quiet during the day and incredibly quiet at night.
The room (palmetto suite) was clean,comfy, with a big closet, terrace and had all the comfort (even more than expected). The bed was extremely comfortable too.. in fact it wasn't easy to wake up early in the morning.
The house has a well furnished common area and a patio with a great swimming pool (the one you can turn on the current and swim as much as you want and as fast as you like). There s a big fridge where you can store your food. Each room has it own space in the common area kitchen for more food storage. They also provide you with plates and silverware.
There's a gas BBQ in the patio next to the pool. This means you can cook and eat in every time you want and this is definitely a big PLUS considering the restaurants in Bermuda aren't cheap.
They provide you with clean beach towels every day. You'll find soap, very good shampoo and conditioner too. You do not really need to bring much from home besides some light clothes!
They also have more travel guides, books, maps about bermuda than any book store on the island! Do not forget to ask for recommendations to Marley and Harry.. you'll never go wrong, trust me!
They really are the best hosts we ever had and we were really sad when we left. They make you feel home in every way.
And I cannot forget one of the best perk of the house ... Digby "ButterPads" Powell, the PartyDog.. Dive for the Queen, Digby!!!

If your like B&B's this is for you!! We stayed in July and thoroughly enjoyed our time ther. Harry and Marlie are so nice and go to great lengths to make your stay a pleasant one. The house is quaint and extremely comfortable. We stayed in the Palmetto Suite and was so welcome to come back to after a long day.The bed was extremely comfortable and everything was very clean. Breakfast was good--loved the scones!! Harry roasts his own coffee. Harry was also so accomodating--he even drove us into town a few times!! Harry and Marlie are also great conversationalists and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Marlie even waved as we left in the cab as if we were old friends leaving!!

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor have a small deck

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.

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.
