This historical masterpiece is located in the heart of downtown Nassau, the Bahamas capital is the perfect mix between business and pleasure. Our hotel offers a taste of the island’s rich Colonial flair, paired with modern amenities that are ideal for the business or pleasure traveler. Our urban resort, which overlooks the picturesque views of the Nassau cruise port, offers a private powder sand beach and an outdoor freshwater pool surrounded by day beds and colorful cabanas. If you’re in the mood to do something daring, hop on one of our paddleboards and kayaks and get soaked into our culture. When the fun is done, get ready to have your taste buds tantalized by one of our two restaurants, or enjoy a coffee at our coffee shop.

Stayed here for the 1st time march - april 2021 and the booking prices were very good too. Shop around the internet booking websites and also, check the Hotel's web site or call them for extended stays. Staff ( Cleaning, Ancillary, Gardeners, Door, Concierge, Reservations, Managers, etc. ) were hospitable, prompt and accommodating during my 2 weeks stay. I enjoyed conversing with all. The covid-19 protocols were excellent and there's also a convenient testing facility across the road opposite the Dairy Bell shop. Great breakfast, dinner food and drink menu with fresh and tasty food which can be enjoyed sublimely seated at the patio overlooking the tropical gardens and private beach; the only thing missing was the site of cruises ships sailing by but they are on their way back. My higher floor, city view, queen bedroom was clean, accommodating. I slept like a rock on the soft pillows and wonderful mattress. Due to covid-19, primarily the Bullion, souvenir & convenience shop were open for services; no tours etc. I missed the Brews and Bites Cafe as this is where I would pop into regularly to get my Starbucks coffee when I was staying at the 40 years plus famous guest house: Mignon Guest House ( now closed and for sale ) in Market St way back in 2013 during my 1st visit for Junkanoo. However, I got my Starbucks close by, at the temporary Starbucks stand at the John Bull building on Bay St, a pleasant 5 minutes stroll along Bay St. A new Starbucks is opening soon next door to John Bull. The Gym was open and has excellent and safe facilities which I enjoyed using. It's great walking around the tropical gardens, the large pool and also, lounging on the sofas in the pool gardens and on the beach. You can kayak, snorkel or swim in the beautiful waters of the private beach. For those that are interested in history, it's on the historic Old Fort Nassau site, where remnants of the old walls can be seen on the grounds, a National Register of Historical Signiificance building. The Woodes Rogers statue is by the entrance, he contributed to ending the Island's period as a Pirate Republic. Many of the pirates living in Nassau at the time (where the skull and crossbones was the flag truly flying), such as Captain John Howard Graysmith accepted the King's Pardon. He was one of the wealthiest pirates, if not the wealthiest at the time of accepting the pardon, he poured his monies into building his grand mansion : Gray Cliff; now a hotel, restaurant and cigar factory too. Trivia: The British Colonial Hotel was used as a filming location for the James Bond film Never Say Never Again, the pier was built for the movie and remain.

Hotel's Favorite
This location is primo! Walk to Fish Fry, downtown shops, COVID testing across the street, US Embassy. Cab stand out front for further excursions. We felt very safe here, large police presence in Nassau these days. Check Marvin for security! Pool like like new, live music on the weekend. Beach is clean and raked daily . Staff and bartenders are friendly and excellent. Check Valentino and Samuel, great job. Rooms are clean for the hotels historic age. This a timeless place, one of the grand beauties. Water pressure could be a little better, but hot water was great. Food was excellent and prices were fair for the area.

We had the pleasure of staying in the Nassau British Colonial Hilton from April 4th to April 10th, 2021 and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The hotel may not seem as lavish as the Baha Mar or Atlantis however what you save on the nightly rate you can spend. On excursions, transportation or food. This hotel is also conveniently located with a private beach, a short 10 minute walk distance to Fish Fry which is the best local food and hang out spot as well as a 15 minute walk to the queens staircase. The staff were all amazing and our room and bed were very comfortable. We were welcome for our stay by Jewels upon our arrival and she left a great impression on us. She was kind, endearing and genuinely cared for our experience and it really showed! We also had the pleasure of dining at Bullion, the restaurant located in the hotel, several times. The food was very delicious which is typically not the case with hotel food. We met several staff members during our stay and they all treated us like family. Specifically Jewels, Lashan, Valentino, Shanique and Gerard and each of them went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We are sad to have to say goodbye however we will be sharing our positive experiences with anyone we come across that is considering a trip to the Bahamas. We felt very safe and everyone including all guests abided by and observed the Covid guidelines. The room had air conditioning, the bed was very comfortable! We highly recommend a stay here!

This hotel is located downtown in a very convenient location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When we visited there was probably less than 50 people in the entire hotel. It was deserted. Pros: convenient location, nice pool, nice beach area, food at the restaurant was good, bed was comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful. Cons: The hotel is very tired and dated and in desperate need of a good clean. The humidity has not been kind to the hotel. We stayed for 4 days and they do not service the rooms during the stay. The water in the room (Shower & sink) stinks (smells like sulphur.) Food at the restaurant is VERY pricey! (Buy the food credit if you are going to be eating at the hotel). NO early check in. The hotel was 95% (or more) empty and they held firm to no early check in as they didn't have any rooms available. (Hard when your flight arrives at 10 am). Despite saying ocean view it really isn't the ocean. It is a channel for boats. Still pretty. The upgrade to ocean view IS NOT worth it. Our room had 3 windows and only one faced the water. I wouldn't have a problem staying here again but we know what to expect next time. In general I have found over the past few years Hilton Corporation has just ridden on their name and have not maintained what people expect from Hilton.
