Perfect location (Warner St. between Picton and Maraval) in a relatively safe, quiet, mostly residential neighborhood, but walking distance to the zoo, Savannah, and national museum. Downtown, Woodbrook Square, and the ferry terminal are a bit further, but I managed to walk to each within 20-30 minutes. Excellent restaurants, including Buzo, are within a few blocks. Wifi was a little... More

We stayed just one night & had the twin-bedded room overlooking Warner Street. Not the most picturesque view in Trinidad - but, we were in the city & within easy reach of all amenities.

These are indeed frequent and loyal clients to whom we give priority in return for their loyalty. I am therefore deeply affected by the turn of events. In response to a change in the habits of the travelling public, we have had to push back our check-in time to 2 pm, following the lead of most Hotels around the globe.... More

We booked a room at Forty Winks for our overnight layover from St Vincent back to the US. What a hidden gem!!! The Inn was so quaint and cute. The art work was beautiful, the upstairs terrace was full of beautiful plants and flowers. So relaxing to sit up there and take in the view of the city. The best... More

Pamella was a wonderful host. We landed in Port of Spain, and within hours, our entire trip around Trinidad and Tobago had fallen apart due to circumstances from the Easter Weekend.

I stayed at this inn for 3 nights and all I have are good impressions and experiences. The place is absolutely cute and very clean. What to say about Pamela, she's a wonderful hostess that will do everything and anything to assist you, very service-oriented. Breakfasts are delicious here and location couldn't be better. 100% recommended.

The Forty Winks Inn is a small (five room), locally-owned boutique hotel conveniently located close to the Queen's Savannah, restaurants, museums, and other amenities in the Newtown section of Port of Spain.

The room was small but clean. The shower worked well and there was flat-screen TV that included HBO. Breakfast was nice. The staff were friendly. The only issue was the prior guest took the keys so they had to open and close our room for us when coming and going.
