“A Great Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The relatively new Hope Town Inn and Marina is worth the visit. We came by boat, and took one night in Room 4 (King, upstairs, great view of the Harbor and grounds). It is easy walking distance to the famous Hope Town lighthouse. Staff was great, on call water shuttle back and forth to various harbor locations, help with luggage getting it off our boat, etc. Fabric, pool bar, and restaurant all worthy of praise.

I really like this place.

Room Tip: Room 4 had a great view, and great air conditioning.

We were booked into a two bedroom, two bath villa. Everything was spotless and new. The villa had a living and dining area plus a beautiful kitchen with all the cooking, eating and drinking things you would need. Private patio off each bedroom and a BBQ if you desired to cook. Private pool near to service the villas. A short walk to the Inn pool, bar and restaurant. Just exquisite taste in decorating the area around the pool. Draperies that can be closed to protect from the wind. You certainly do not need them at this time of year. The weather was fabulous. The Inn also offers a water shuttle to take you and your party to other restaurants and locations in Hope Town. The front desk, housekeeping and table service at the restaurant and bar - superb, as is everywhere you go in Hope Town. While we were there for 2 nights, it felt like a week of holiday. Also - for sailboats, power boast and yachts - the marina can handle the largest and the smallest. Huge number of slips. Reservations a must.

Room Tip: Did not see the Inn "rooms" because they were all booked. But the privacy of the Villas wa...

This was an excellent marina to spend time in. The personnel was very helpful. We enjoyed their free shuttle across to the main town as well as the peaceful and private areas of the marina itself.
Wonderful area for snorkeling and beach walking by day, dancing and fun activities at night.

Room Tip: We used the marina for ourselves, but did have friends use the hotel. They thought there room was de...

Really nice new restaurant and marina. We ate lunch here the other day and really enjoyed it. I had 2 of the best goombay smashes ever. We also had great bacon cheese fries for appetizer. I had an excellent crawfish (lobster) quesadilla and my wife had a great steak and bleu sandwich. Great place to go for lunch, only downside is that you either have to go by ferry or on your own boat, unfortunately you can't get there from Hope Town by land.

Just spent three nights in Room 6 overlooking the pool and harbor. A very delightful place, good food, charming employees and so perfect. Well run, clean, and pretty. Will definitely come again, hopefully for a longer time so I can enjoy the conch chowder every day. Thank you for making my birthday extra special!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 6 facing the harbor and pool. Totally perfect in all ways.

It was a sunny Friday last week in Boca where I had been on business. Virginia is home and it was cold there, having just left a snow and ce sleet storm on Thursday. Having been to Hopetown many times before I popped on over for the weekend. For a number of reasons I decided to try Hopetown Marina and Inn.

Dropped off right at their dock by Alburys Ferry, the stay wonderfully well when Gary, my friend, came out from behind his place at the bar and gave me a hug of greeting. He has just moved over there after 15 years at the lodge across the water. Juat having Gary there made my stay.

Aaron, the manager, was friendly as were all the staff ! You can just TELL whne a team is cohesive and enjoy working together, and this was true of the staff at HM&I.

I was greeted at the front desk, escorted to my room and met there by another staffer with the door open ! The room was nicely furnished complete with microwave, safe and small refrigerator. Even better they were all in their own closet. My room with its king bed faced the water right atop the marina. The deck is a little on the small side, not allowing for furniture on the balcony unless you bring it out from your room. Which I did. The view was just too pleasant not to. I especially enjoyed the double french doors, a very nice enhancement over sliding doors.

Try Chef Neil's conch chowder. They offer both red and white and the white was the best white conch chowder I have had. Not too thick and cloying like New England clam chowder but more like North Carolina chowder.

Gary whips up some mean island drinks. From Goombay Smashes to Bahamamas to Rum Punch, he does it all with a joke and a smile.

The property is newly remodeled and it was done well. Overall it has just a great feel to it. Seeing Gary was great. Made even sweeter by the fact that they had some of the best rates on the island.

Sweet Island Life Mon

Room Tip: All the marina rooms face the water and the marina. There are no bad rooms.

Four of us went for this evening. Two of us had the Creamy Dill Catch of The Day. The Grouper was a bit on the salty side and we could find no evidence of dill present the dish. Cabbage salad and plantains were quite good. The girls each had a salad which they enjoyed. For a place that charges the highest prices on the island, paper napkins don't cut it, at least for dinner.
