“A Beautiful Home Base for Bermuda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

First of all, Hazel, her family, and staff are worth the stay. They are extremely hospitable and kind hosts. Salt Kettle House had an amazing breakfast, nice guest accommodations, and the most relaxing hammock with a view of the harbor and Hamilton. We ended every night with a ferry ride back home, cooked dinner in our room, and ate on our porch. We would make dark n' stormys, turn on some jazz music, and enjoy the view.

When we make it back to Bermuda, we'll stay here. Hands down.

10 days AT Salt Kettle was not enough for the people you meet both owners staff and guests. Hazel Lowe is the sweetest lady that when you meet her at introduction you just want to hug her and I did. I loved everything about the place the veiws both front and back the rooms stayed in starboard with my mom and sister plenty of room clean and bright. Great breakfast with great people every morning close to the ferry (2 min). I can tell you I will stay here many more times on my future vacations to Bermuda. Honestly we had the perfect time at the perfect place. Thank you hazel for everything it was great to meet you and i will see you next year.

I have had the great pleasure of staying at Hazel Lowe's Salt Kettle House for many years. It's in a beautiful part of the harbor side of the island facing an inlet in both back and front, and close to transportation to town, the beaches and beyond. Your stay will include a delicious home cooked breakfast. It's comfortable for the person who wants something more like home as opposed to a high maintenance luxury stay, for a more reasonable price. Truly like coming home. Over the years I have met many lovely people, and have seen how the homey ambiance, especially at the communal breakfast in the sitting room, creates a comfortable atmosphere for people from all walks of life. I always look forward to my stays at Salt Kettle, and will continue to do so!

My wife and l spent two wonderful weeks at Salt Kettle from March 19 to April 2. The weather was wonderful by Canadian Nova Scotia standards. ( 20-24 ) during the day and dipping down to 16c in the evening. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The kitchen/housekeeping staff were superb. We liked the fresh flowers in our Pinpoint A cottage. John Lowe rushing too and fro setting wood for a nice cheery fire to take the chill off in the evening. John and Hazel took us to the store to purchase our groceries. All the people we met were first class. We had many a laugh and an occasional Dark and Stormy. It was a very great and positive experience. Gordon and Jill Holstead. Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Every wonderful review you read here is correct. I have only a few notes to add that may be helpful.Remember that this is not a large hotel and, as such, does not provide the amenities that we have come to expect such as shampoo, lotions , etc. I had hoped for a box of tissue and wished I had purchased some on our stop at the market on our way in.Also, if your plan on cooking in, you may want to ask for a room with a regular stove. Some rooms that say they have a kitchen only have a 2 burner cook top of sorts, a fridge and a microwave. The ferry is indeed very close for those who don't want to chance the motorbikes.However the bus stop is quite a hike uphill or a ferry ride to Hamilton for the bus terminal. A transportation pass makes this transportation reasonable but be aware that a bus will not drop you off at the doorstep of many of the places you will want to go. All in all, Salt Kettle House is a charming and delightful place.The owner and staff are wonderful and we enjoyed meeting people from New York, Texas, Nova Scotia,New Hampshire,Pennsylvania, Canada and England. A lovely lounge for gathering and sharing a "Dark and Stormy" with new friends is what staying at a place like Salt Kettle House is all about !

Just stayed here - great location, lots of character, very friendly and lovely guests to chat to over yummy breakfast. Highly recommend for people wanting an alternative to the resort hotel experience in Bermuda.

Somewhat hard to find on the web (stumbled upon it on TA) - but hard to leave once you're there!

The personal service starts when you give Hazel a call and she takes care of all your needs from booking your room, arranging for Mr. Harris to pick you up at the airport, reserve a table in advance, etc. We were greeted with a pot of tea and Hazel's recommendations. She can (and will !!) plan out your itinerary while making notes on your copy of the Bermuda map. After our sit down with Hazel we knew where to go for lunch at the Dockyards, dinner in Hamilton, attractions in St. George's, best swimming beach, ... the list goes on. She has been on the island for so many years that everyone knows her. I think you could ask just about anyone (from the ferry pilot, waiters, shop keepers, art galleries) and they will know Hazel and Salt Kettle. Try it!

We lucked out and stayed in the Tower Room (it can be booked up many months in advance) which is on the 2nd floor and has windows on every side to catch nice breezes no matter which way the wind blows, and a private balcony to watch the sunset over the water. You will need to climb the flight of stairs up from the 1st floor bath, however, so this may not be a good choice for those with disabilities. There are other rooms on the ground floor and 2 cottages with views over the harbor to Hamilton. The skyline is beautiful at night and you won't miss the downtown noise or traffic. In the morning everyone meets for breakfast which is prepared by 2 lovely ladies and includes your choice of eggs, French toast, pancakes, muffins, juice and, of course, coffee. Basic fare (no sausage, onions, cheese, etc.) but enough to keep you going for the day.

The house a bit of a walk from the bus stop, but is literally just around the corner from the excellent ferry to Hamilton. A great way to get around while getting a waterside view of the Great Sound! The bus doesn't go everywhere so we rented scooters (they will come to pick you up at the house) in order to see some of the out of the way spots and to pick up wine and cheese at the market. Riding them is a bit scary at first, but just relax, keep to the left (British driving rules), and let the faster cars and bikes go by. Paget is centrally located so Salt Kettle is no more than 45 minutes from any place on the island.

The warm service attests to the many repeat visitors to Salt Kettle House. We intend to join them on our next trip to Bermuda!!
