“Bermuda daughter's wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Loved this place. Walk upstairs and see an incredible view. We were there with all family, taking up guest house and rooms in the home. My husband also has a sister and aunt on the island. We had 55 family members all over the island and our spot was VERY popular. The pool was perfect and the grounds very lush. The dock on the harbor was so fun, the kids swam and snorkeled there too. Breakfast was great, loved Carol and Mike the owners and Francisco was a wonderful help and great personality. A jack of all trades!! My only complaint was we had children with us and getting to the ferry was scary on Harbour road. Bus line is up a steep hill, and not easy to get to. Cabs are the best way to go. Our daughter, was married on the island, and Carol allowed the girls in the wedding party to use a drawing room to dress. Thanks again!

My wife and I took advantage of a business trip to steal a couple of nights together in Bermuda to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at the Granaway Guest House. The innkeepers, Carol and Michael Ashton, were warm and inviting, and Francisco, who helps run the place, was helpful and friendly. The grounds are beautiful and private, and we very much enjoyed lounging by the wonderful pool in the evening. Granaway is a short walk from the Belmont ferry stop, which makes getting to and from Hamilton a breeze, and the bus stop isn't too far either. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and we really enjoyed learning the history of the house and the island from the Ashtons. We were lucky enough to get the cottage -- thanks again, Carol! --and it was comfortable and charming. We can't wait to go back.

We stayed 4 nights at the Granaway at the end of May 2013 and we definitely loved it! The clean pool is gorgeous both during the day and at night. We loved the big yard and the vegetation and the old style of the house. The owners are very warm and welcoming and we enjoyed the delicious and lovely breakfast in the morning (thank you Francisco!). We also really enjoyed the fact that it was central on the island (not too far from Hamilton). We would definitely love to go back there!

On holiday, my husband and I take value for money quite seriously - especially in a place like Bermuda where there's a hefty duty on literally everything. Right from the beginning, we knew we were on to something special with the Granaway Guest House.
Upon arrival, expect to pay around $35 dollars to get from the airport to Warwick parish and the guest house. Non residents are not allowed to drive so you should plan to either hire a moped (~$55/day), bike, or get to know the public transportation network. We opted to walk, and take buses and ferries everywhere. To start off with when navigating the roadways, you may be worried about the lack of pavements, but if you keep close to the road walls and realize that local Bermudians are completely familiar with the narrow roads and walkers, you'll be just fine.
Granaway is a short walk from the Belmont ferry stop and about 10mins to the nearest bus stop going in to Hamilton (~15 mins) or out to the dockyards(~40 mins). The local beaches are beautiful and only around a mile away even though it feels longer due to the two manageable hills. Public transportation drivers don't give change so if you haven't purchased tokens (~$4) or a pass ahead of time, you should aim to have the correct amount or you'll be out of pocket.
The house - it's simply gorgeous. You'll be greeted by one of the warmest welcome's you could ask for by your hosts Michael and Carol, and their diligent house keeper Francisco. The house itself over looks a picturesque garden and a palm-adorned sparkling pool in the back, and the Granaway Deep bay in the front. Every window has a view and perfectly placed chairs inviting you to sit and enjoy it at every moment. There is a private patio/dock right on the water front perfect for taking in a sunset or two all to yourself. The rooms are very well appointed, comfortable, and tastefully theme-decorated. A healthy fresh breakfast of great coffee, tea, fresh fruit salad, homemade muffins, toast, eggs etc, is served at 9am. This can be taken either 'family style' around the dining table sharing the company and stories of the other guests, or more privately in the garden or your own room. Your hosts effortlessly make you feel completely comfortable in their home and can offer as much or as little local advise and information as you need.
The nearest restaurant is a short walk through their private gate across the golf course to the club house (Blu bar and grill). The view from the dining patio is breathtaking, perfect for enjoying some excellent cocktails and incredible sushi rolls.
We would jump at the chance to stay at the Granaway next time we treat ourselves to a getaway in Bermuda. The Granaway offers excellent value for money in a beautifully idealistic setting. It's near enough to everything you need, and yet far enough away to make you feel like you're in your own little paradise. It's the icing AND the cake!

I literally flew back to my home today after a three night stay at The Granaway, and sat down to write this right away... did NOT want to leave!!
We are veteran 'inn stayers,' and have stayed at many from Key West to Montreal to Portugal... You get the picture.
Our wonderful experience started with my phone booking with bubbly Carol. She, and her husband Michael, are the consummate hosts... THEY make the experience... A fact made all the more impressive by the fact that they've been doing this a LONG time. They genuinely seem to care, and along with their caretaker, the ever-smiling Francisco, make you feel welcome and attended to.
The house and grounds are beautiful... It was hard to get my 10 year old out of the sparkling pool... Well, me too to be honest.
It is centrally located, a short walk to the Hamilton ferry, or cab ride to the great restaurants at Elbow Beach or the gorgeous South Shore beaches (shhh!! Jobson Cove!!)
A lovely birthday trip with great 'bang for the buck'... Ummm, can we catch that 7am flight back TOMORROW?!

We stayed in Granaway for four nights. We definitely LOVED this place! It has beautiful garden, swimming pool, hospitable and nice hosts (Michael and Carol)! The room we stayed was large, delicious breakfast (Thanks to Francisco!), clean room+bath room! The breeze from the sea was amazing. I found this guest house definitely lovely. Amazing service, and good price. Also each morning, the guests had breakfast in the dining hall with Michael and Francisco and It was an another pleasant thing at this guest house (sharing information, great chat!) I will definitely come back to Granaway next visit to Bermuda.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Granaway for three nights in March. It was absolutely lovely! The central location, delicious breakfasts, spacious rooms, and cozy ambience made our vacation perfect. The water view is amazing - clear blue waters and the little islands across the harbor. Maverick (the dog) & the kitty are extremely friendly and fun to play with, probably used to having guests come in and out. All in all, we can't wait to go back. Francisco was extremely hospitable and gracious- thank you for everything!
