“Amazing views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Newstead 3 nights in late August to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The spacious one bedroon suite was literally on the waterfront with an amazing view of the harbor and Hamilton. We had a little side patio with a small table and two chairs, and in addition there was a small yard area with two comfy chairs from which we could sit and watch the harbor activity. The bathroom was equally as spacious and was spotlessly clean. Our only complaint about the bathroom was that the tub drain was very sluggish and took a while to empty. There was a convenient vanity area with a lit magnifying makeup mirror. The small kitchen area got no use while we were there but did have everything you'd need to whip up a small meal or keep things cold. What sets Newstead apart from other properties is that it provides free airport pick-up/delivery, free ferry shuttles to/from Hamilton (limited schedule), and free golf with shuttles to and from the golf course and it's restaurant, Blu (highly recommend). They even gave us a free shuttle ride to Fourways Inn restaurant one evening because they were having trouble getting cabs. The golf course was lots of fun, but a bit narrow. (Hit 'em straight!) Just had to pay $35 for cart fee. The day we were there there was a tournament going on for local players and they still squeezed us in. The locals couldn't have been nicer or friendlier which we found to be true of all Bermudians. Don't look for nightlife at Newstead. We were looking for somewhere relaxing and that's exactly what we got! Our only negative feedback was that the pool area seems woefully neglected. It's a beautiful infinity pool, but the deck area is rather small and some days it was hard to find a lounge chair available and the left over dishes weren't always picked up at night. Towels were plentiful, but the bar was nearly empty. One day I asked for a rum drink and was told they were out of rum! It's Bermuda, how could you be out of rum?? There is also a small observation area that had a couple of low chairs and nothing else. They should capitalize on those views and spruce up the pool and observation areas. For the most part the staff (especially Tristan) were friendly and helpful. One day we took a cab ($40 one way) to the Dockyard. The cab ride itself was well worth the money just to see that side of the island, and our cab driver, Richardlina, was a wealth of information. Don't go there for the shops (very tacky), but be sure to visit the museum ($10). It sits up on the hill with spectacular views. While in Bermuda the weather was gorgeous, if not a little too hot and humid, but that made the pool all that more refreshing. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to Newstead.

Room Tip: One bedroom suites are located in little cottages right on the waterfront. It had a side patio, but...

Stayed here with my husband for our first time in Bermuda...I cannot say enough about the friendliest staff you could have asked for. This hotel is small and pays attention to every detail with service top notch. You are across from Hamilton and its amazing restaurants etc. The resort will shuttle you by ferry at night and you can get a cab home fairly inexpensively. There is a free shuttle to their golf course which has a great restaurant for sushi called Blu and a free shuttle to a sister resort on a beach if you want to explore a great beach and snorkel. Eric was our driver for the three days we spent here. He was kind, humorous, professional, and a wealth of information about life on Bermuda. There is no beach at this hotel as you are on the bay but the suites are built into the hillside and you enjoy a closer to the water view from rooms with a balcony. If you are looking for lots of action, however, this hotel will not be the one for you. It's quiet and a nice retreat for a romantic getaway.

We stayed from July 27th through August 3rd 2012. we wished we could have stayed longer. The room was quiet and we didn't hear any other guests. We stayed in a one bedroom suite and it was fantastic. The view was amazing. I loved the fact we were on the ground level because it felt like we had a yard. We got to see some beautiful birds every morning and see the local lizards doing their push ups while we had our meals out there.

Our blender didn't work, we made a call and we got another one immediately. If we wanted our garbage taken out, they would come and grab it for us. The front reception desk was so helpful and extremely nice. The bellmen were great, if we needed to go some where in the shuttle, they took us and we never had to wait long to get a shuttle back.

Beau Rivage for room service was awesome. We got this turkey ciabatta sandwich almost every day. It was THAT good. We had dinner there twice and even though both my meals were amazing. My husband's last meal he didn't like. They were out of the beef bourguignon. He asked the waiter his opinion on what he should get. So he winded up getting the beef wellington and he did not like it. They covered it with this thick sauce and it had a really thick layer of both liver and crust. It took a while before we got a waiter and they offered him something else from the menu but it was already too late. I was done with my meal. They gave him a free espresso. But the other things we did have: the foie gras, mussels, steak au poivre and rack of lamb were fantastic.

The pool is gorgeous. It was like bath water. I didn't see a place where you could drop your used towels so people would leave the towels on the chairs. You could never tell if someone was using a chair or not. One time (notice just once) when I went to get a towel there were none so I had to run back to the room (which was literally 20 feet for us) and get our towels from the room.

The golf course was nice. You definitely need the shuttle to get there. Make sure you get a tee time. The hotel called the pro shop and said we can come down at any time as long as it was before 3pm. and when we went in to the pro shop to pay for our cart they said next time we need a tee time. I am complete novice and felt like the course ran into each other sometimes. We also were told we had to stay on the cart path but noticed that people were driving on it.

Spa- My husband tried to get a hair appointment and would call every other day but they were very booked and couldn't take him for a hair cut. So if you are planning on getting a hair cut do it before you go on vacation.

We are definitely going to come back hopefully next year.

Stayed in 2 bedroom suite. It was our first time in Bermuda. Came with two grown up kids to celebrate our birthdays with the friends who stayed in different hotels and resorts.
Accomodations are very comfortable with a picture perfect harbor views and a town of Hamilton from each room of the suite as well as patio that is accessable from each room of the suite. Nice bathrooms and rooms. Very clean, fully equiped kitchen for those who want to cook, although there are plenty of great places to eat on an island.
Very relaxing small resort.
Great service and ease to get a taxi anywhere on the island.

Room Tip: Depending on number of members in your party, I would recommend a suite, either one or two bedroom o...

Newstead Belmont Hills is a beautiful hotel with a very beautiful swimming pool and fabulous harbor view! We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which has one king size bed in a very large bedroom, huge bathroom (huge bathtub and big shower), kitchen, dining area, big living room, powder room and huge patio. There is high point ceiling that the room was on the top of the building. Fabulous view from the patio! Beautiful hardwood floor everywhere. They have hot tub next to the swimming pool and it was so awesome and beautiful! Rent a moped is recommended because you can go to many beaches as you want. We went to Bermuda for many years. We stayed at several hotels (Fairmont Southampton, Fairmont Princess, Four Ways Inn, Elbow Beach, Castle Harbour (now Tucker), Invururie (now new name of the old hotel?). So far, it's Newstead Belmont Hills is the BEST hotel of all!! My two older teenage kids said they love this hotel, Newstead the best, too! We love two restaurants the best which is Mickey's at Elbow Beach which is on the front of the ocean on the beach (beautiful!!) and HogPenny in downtown Hamilton. Very good food! We love Tio Pepe (italian restaurant) up the hill from Horseshoe Bay. Pizza was so good. We also love Swizzle Inn restaurant for lunch (orginal place)! We will definitely always go back to Bermuda. We will come back to Bermuda in about 2 years. Bermuda is one of my favorite countries in the world. We will definitely come back to Newstead Belmont Hills!!! So beautiful!! It's my 12th time and it's my husband's 8th time and it's my kids' 6th time for visiting in Bermuda.

Perfect location with a great view, central location, a fabulous infinity pool with stunning views of the harbor, and a courteous and energetic staff make this the best deal on the island. We stayed in a gorgeous suite that was convenient for a couple as it had a kitchenette.
The best part of Newstead is their transportation. The only hotel with a private ferry to get you to Hamilton and hence on your way very easily to anywhere else on the island. They have a beach shuttle to Coco Reef Beach as well as Belmont Hills Golf Club.
Anyone who has tried to get around Bermuda learns quickly that taxis are expensive, the busses are not air conditioned and very unreliable, and renting a scooter is frankly as dangerous as walking railroad tracks at night....in a thunderstorm....during rush hour.
Seriously, Newstead is THE PLACE to stay while vacationing in Bermuda.

The Newstead Belmont Hills is a beautiful hotel, centrally located with a gorgeous infinity pool and outstanding views of the harbor. My room (Deluxe room) was very spacious (probably 500 sq feet), had 2 double beds, a large bathroom and a huge patio with unique views of the harbor and the city of Hamilton. There is a small fridge in the room but it is not a mini-bar. Furniture are modern and beds very comfortable. The hotel provided a free shuttle bus to the Coco Reef Resort where you can use the private beach or walk to Elbow Beach. Note that the shuttle is very small (7 people max). However in Bermuda I would always recommend to rent a scooter. The hotel has a partnership with Oleander Cycles. They will pick you up at the hotel and take you to the rental place 5 minutes away. You do not need to return the scooter to Oleander, they will pick it up at the hotel, very convenient. The food at the Belmont Hills is very good (breakfast room service, Blue Rivage restaurant for diner). Note that the hotel advertises a Sunday Jazz Brunch... in fact it is just a very expensive brunch ($38, coffee, juices and water not included!!) and there is no Live music as I expected but just a radio playing Barry White and Sinatra in a loop... disappointed with the ambiance but the food once again is very good. The staff throughout the hotel is really friendly, helpful and professional even though sometimes not entirely at par with what you would expect from a luxury property. The hotel provides free airport pick up and free transportation back to the airport (book it 24h in advance).
