Good but not back to glory.
Jun 2019
The BVI's are in "OK" condition, even after almost two years since storms. This property is making some progress but there is much damage and wear noted. They seem interested in getting back to a 4 star status but it's taking way too long.I'm not sure if capital is needed or competent services to accomplish restoration.

TMM Yacht Charters--an outstanding vacation!
Apr 2018
Bareboat or with a captain--great day sailing with a different harbor on a different island each night. Excellent snorkeling and incredible star gazing at night. Cook on board or dine at local restaurants, or both...
Check ahead of time as some shore facilities are still closed for hurricane damage repairs (they really got clobbered!)

We Love Fort Burt Hotel!
May 2016 • Family
I live on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, and run an annual sailboat charter flotilla with Conch Charters in Road Town. The night before we sail, we all stay at Fort Burt Hotel. This year, we had 26 people the night before the charter, and 22 people the night after the charter ended. Fort Burt was perfect, as always!

There are an assortment of rooms, with different rates. All are spacious and clean, and have gorgeous views of Road Harbor. I have stayed in the Standard, the Deluxe, and Mini-Suite, and even the 2-bedroom with a private pool. All are excellent!

The staff at Fort Burt is incredible friendly and helpful. I arranged a dinner at the dining room for everybody, and they outdid themselves with decor and service. The dining room is on the main floor, with big views of the harbor. Service was prompt, and all the food was delicious. In the morning, the staff prepared an huge buffet breakfast for everyone. Eggs, bacon, toast, waffles, potatoes, fruit, juice, coffee, tea.

The rooms have comfortable beds, good a/c, balconies, tv, phone, desks, small refrigerators. Everything you need.

There is a small pool that is perfect for a quick swim.

I've stayed in other Tortola hotels, and nothing compares to the Fort Burt Hotel. Thank you, Ian, and all the staff for all the hospitality.

The fort burt hotel structure has numerous falling and trip hazards and should be visited if you have kids. Railings are loose, too low or too high in hallways and room areas.

Excellent Dinner
Apr 2016
We spent one night as guests of the Fort Burt Hotel, at the end of our bareboat charter. The hotel suited our needs and was unremarkable. Dinner was another thing, as we were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and our server Maya (spelling?)

Maya was professional and entertaining. Everyone in our group, 8 in all, thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. I had grouper and it was cooked to perfection with a creole style sauce. It proved to be a great way to end our BVI vacation.

The hotel could be lovely. It is terraced into a steep hill with a beautiful view of the ocean and marina across the street. Our room was very plain, but it had all the basics. Don't expect luxury. There were some sand fleas which attacked my ankles. I learned quickly to keep my shoes on, and purchased some Off bug spray. The ladies who run the hotel are very sweet. I actually left my handbag out overnight, and when I asked if anyone had seen it, not only did they give it to me, but all the cash was still in it! The food is incredibly expensive, we had no coffee maker in room. It was $5 for a small pot of really bad coffee.

Clean, Convienient, Value, and friendly staff
Dec 2015 • Friends
Fort Burt was clean, comfortable, convenient and a value prior to our yacht charter out of TMM. When we got to the island, the humidity was oppressive, and the air conditioned room was a welcome sanctuary. The hotel was nice enough to hold the kitchen open for our groups late arrival also.

Conch Charter
Feb 2016 • Friends
Perfect for an overnight stop if using either of the charter bases just outside the entrance. We arrived near midnight and were checked in by " Bert " who was also our barman for our travel de stress before retiring for the night. Excellent breakfast with super views and just a five minute walk put us on our charter boat.
