“The very best Guest House in Bermuda!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

Enjoy a taste of the real Bermuda at Granaway, a fabulous Guest House located just across the harbor from Hamilton. Michael and Carol Ashton will be sure you are spoiled with a generous and delicious breakfast and will tend to your every need. You will so enjoy meeting them, living in their beautiful home and strolling the lovely gardens. In just a few hours you will feel like part of the family! Your Bermuda experience will be so much more personal and enjoyable if you plan to stay at Granaway!

Granaway Guest House and Cottage were just what we needed. We celebrated our 30 year wedding anniversary in the cottage in the grounds of the most beautiful guest house. Michael and Carol are such great hosts. All the staff were superb. We had the most delicious breakfasts every morning where we sat with all the guests and received such pleasant and wonderful service. We felt like one of the family. The table was set so nicely, with silverware and wonderful plates etc.
The cottage was very quaint and quiet. It was very romantic and private. The garden and pool were just so relaxing. We barbecued one night and swam nearly every day.If you want a quiet relaxing break I would recommend Granaway. Absolutely amazing and
well worth a visit. We shall be back. Thanks everyone at Granaway for making our stay so memorable. We will never forget this trip.

It's in an excellent centralized location in Warwick so you can go up to Somerset or visit the east end near St. George both in under 30-45 minutes. We rented a scooter so it was very convenient and right next door to an excellent restaurant Blu at the golf course. The house is very warm and bermudian in it's tile and wood floors and furnishings.

The room was well appointed, clean sheets and really nice desk, chairs and comfy bed. The towels were a little musty because of the humid weather but there were ample to choose from. The breakfast, especially the waffles were excellent! Francisco does a wonderful job on the service and Michael and Carol are very warm and friendly. The only minor item was that our room faced the road and there was traffic noise but since we were never in the room it really didn't matter. If you want to avoid this I would recommend booking the cottage in the back.

Would definitely go back again! Enjoy Bermuda the local way and stay here instead of at an overpriced hotel with less charm.

We didn't read about Granaway before our trip, unfortunately! But because of a miscommunication somewhere else we could to stay at the Granaway for one night. We were surprised by it. Carol, Michael and Fransisco do a great job here. It looks good and the rooms have anything you need. If you are looking for a good mix between B&B and luxury this is your place to stay. The room we had was fantastic.

We spent 11 days at Granaway and loved every second of our stay. Warm, welcoming hospitality from hosts Carol and Michael, and their right hand man Francisco. Lovely, historical Bermuda home filled with delightful amenities, delicious silver service breakfasts, fragrant gardens, a serene swimming pool, plus a secluded patio/ dock with deep water swimming made Granaway an special treat! A top notch place to stay in Bermuda for rest and relaxation. We hope to return soon. This is Bermuda at her best!

First, some advice: the trip advisor availability calender always shows full, but do not be put off (for smaller hotels and guest houses, the calender is not suitable} - you might miss the holiday of a lifetime, so check with the owners direct.
Carol and Micheal make wonderful hosts at this most friendly and well located accomodation.
What more can we say: just go there and see for yourself!

Our first time to Bermuda and The Granaway met all of our expectations and more. The view of the Sound is breathtaking from the sitting room balcony and there is even a really romantic setup on their personal dock that we could access. The B&B gives you a historic taste of the real flavor of Bermuda and like previous reviews really felt like you were staying with friends rather than at a non-personal hotel.

The owners were very nice, helpful, accomodating, and interesting. Michael and Carol always had good stories to tell at breakfast (which was excellent - unending coffee with addicting sugar crystals) and plenty of advice to give whenever needed. The grounds were beautiful with lush plants all over and plenty of area to lounge at the pool or at the numerous table and chairs for tea.

It was definitely helpful to rent scooters, but even if you don't, the ferry stop with access to Hamilton, dockyards, or even St. George's was a quick walk up a neighboring waterfront golf course and the bus stop was about a 15 minute walk at the bottom of a semi-steep hill (but its past Michael Douglas and Catherine Z Jones house, so who minds that ?). Beaches are walkable with an added exercise bonus.

The location was good as it is close to Hamilton for good restaurants and nightlife, not far away from amazing crystal blue beaches with snorkeling, and in between the historic areas of St. George's and the Naval Dockyards with plenty of stops along the way. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again without a doubt !
