There is a nice atmosphere, be patient with Ma bass. Good location, close super market and restaurants.You can safe some money by cooking on the kitchen. Roseau is a good base to visit the south of Dominica and Roseau valley.

The two travellers we were were very happy to find Ma Bass in the quite expensive Roseau - inside the islands, prices are way lower. But Ma Bass knows how to take care of her hosts. She's always looking to make sure you have everything you need. She helps you with bookings, visits or whatever you need. You can use... More

MaBass Guest House has been built by hand by her husband and is maintained by her with lots of love and care. We felt very well taken care of and had some nice conversations with her. I absolutely recommend staying. Its close to the harbour in the middle of the city and close to the collective taxis that bring you... More

A sweet, elderly couple served as our hosts at this very centrally-located guesthouse in the capital city. Their grandson checked us in (we had reservations), and Mr. Bass greeted us almost every night upon our return from local adventures. Mr. Bass built the house himself, many years ago, and they still live on-site. Prices are very reasonable, and vary based... More

Great deal simple, no frills, clean, unassuming place in the center of the city, access to all areas even Portsmouth, Ma Bass was great with suggestions on where to visit and how to get there. The room was nice space, safe access to kitchen. Side note people go to Dominica because of its rawness, pay for cheap hotel room then... More

Ma Bass is a comfortable clean guest house run by a very sweet old lady. The rooms are quaint and basic and we felt very safe and secure. Sure the showers aren't the hottest that I have had but in this climate it hardly matters. Ma went out of her way to make breakfast at the time that suited us... More

Unfortunately we can't give a proper review as Ma Bass was not there when we arrived on Sunday evening from the ferry, despite having made a reservation in person, the week before. She was friendly enough then and wrote it all down in the book. The rooms looked OKish but basic. Arriving on a Sunday night in dark deserted Rousseaux... More

I was extremely dissapointed with the state of my room in the attic. I rarely had a hot shower, my toilet did not flush properly for the duration of my stay, the wardrobe door was broken, the sink was crooked and the water trickled out of the shower and tap.When I complained about all of these issues, I was told...
