“Simple, convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

If you're looking for excitement and cheesy bands, proceed straight to Atlantis. If you are looking for a simple, super-clean place only 10 minutes from the airport to stay on your first or last night in the Bahamas, this is it. The 'check-in' is located inside the dining room past the honor bar (yes, the honor bar, stocked with the most delicious rum, cold beer, and mixers).

The room: nice little balcony facing a lot of palm trees and the sea (over the parking lot). Very clean and nice. The AC was on when we arrived, there is an efficiency kitchen + refrigerator, and nice sized bathroom. The Ritz it is not, but a nice little room in which to stay and get a nice night's rest it was.

The beach: down the drive and across the road. Not crowded at all and easily accessible.

The surroundings: there is not a lot around this inn. A small shopping area is a 10 minute walk to the east and has a Chinese restaurant and liquor store. A restaurant called Traveller's Rest that received great reviews was closed by early December due to the owner passing away. So, to eat your choices are Chinese or the Inn. The inn's menu is nice and local, but a wee pricey. Having more food choices or inexpensive options on the menu may have bumped this review to excellent.

The checking in and out was efficient and simple. Hard to argue with a process when you have a cold Bahamian beer in your hand.

In summary, I would stay here again and would recommend it to others with the simple caveat: it's not an all-inclusive resort. Other than that, open a cold Sands and sit while watching the palm trees sway in the breeze.

stayed at Orange Hill for a week before visiting another Island, we stayed in one of the older style apartments on the first night, but the owners did'nt charge us for that night, as there had been a little mix up with the cottage by the sea we had booked,The older style apartment was ok a little tried, good for a night, perfect for an over nighter, as the airport is very near.
The next morning we moved into the cottage, it was great everything you would need was right there, over looking the sea, clean, and I did remark about how comfortable the huge bed was and lovely linen
. we enjoyed the week going to the quieter beach, we had them all to ourselves. orange hill is a quiet and friendly run hotel, and the price is great valve compaired too other hotels on the Island, we would definitely stay here again

I have visited this hotel on many occasions since 1995, the latest being Nov this year.
It is the only place I would ever stay in Nassau. Some of the reviews on here are very dramatic/suspicous, I suppose that is the devil of trip advisor.

I have never felt more welcome anywhere on this planet, and yes I have travelled.
No this is not Atlantis of paradise Island, but I would never want that.
You are part of the family at this hotel, you will not find what they have anywhere else.

Such great hosts, I've never felt like home from home anywhere before.

As Rick says to me, welcome home :)

Keep up the good work guys :@)

Stayed at Orange Hill before and after a sailing holiday in the Bahamas and I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay - laid back, friendly, everything you need - and so much nicer than the concrete jungle of Cable Beach or the cruise ship nightmare of Nassau. Nice rooms, a lift to the supermarket for supplies from Rick, an honesty bar, good food at good prices, quiet, a good pool and no problem - or charge - for late check out. VERY nice people - staff and guests. And a beach to myself too! If you need to stay in New Providence for a couple of days before/after diving/fishing/sailing holiday - or if you fancy a totally relaxed holiday, without spending a fortune - go for Orange Hill

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms starting with 'D' - you get a kitchenette too and a terrace overloo...

We stayed here one night because of the price and its proximity to the airport. There is just no way I would ever stay here otherwise. It is basically a 1970's concrete block motel never updated that apparently is being turned into residences for locals. The rooms are in poor repair, the entire place was in desperate need of general upkeep and cleaning. Sure there is a beach, across the main coastal road. I'm not that hard to please but the website is really misleading. The people were friendly but the facilities are just not up to par.

I had a wonderful stay at Orange Hill in early November. I booked one of the cottages and a had a wide-open view of the ocean and beach from the french doors on the porch. The kitchen allowed me to have my own food (as the 1 breakfast I had in the hotel dining room left much to be desired) and it was a short walk down the street to a very good Chinese restaurant that had excellent pot-stickers. Traveling into Nassau is a bit of a trek with the taxi fare being around $30, but after staying in downtown Nassau for 5 nights, this was a welcomed retreat.

My husband and I stayed here for a week. It was the most amazing week ever! This is not a upperscale hotel/motel. You will not get a mint on your pillo wevery night and towels made into little critters. What you do get, is some friendly people, some beautiful views, some quiet time and a great vacation. If you want the night clubs and lous crowded beaches, this is not the place for you....but it was the place for us! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Get one of the cottages....love love love it!
