This place does not run like clockwork, and it is a steep climb up the stairs but the staff is friendly (and will assist you with your bags) and once you have arrived the rustic charm is lovely and overwhelming. We had the room on the top floor which. The windows open for a fresh breeze. We especially loved the... More

We arrived from key west and we had problems with our luggage. The airline lost our bags, so the beginning of this trip didn’t start off too well. We checked in to the hotel late, the hotel is literally no more than a 10 min drive from the airport. The receptionist was very sympathetic when she heard about our luggage... More

I accidentally booked a room at this hotel, and when I went to try to cancel it they wouldn't let me. I had to pay a 100% penalty. Quite frankly I think the hotel was very deceptive. I'm sure there were some small print somewhere that warned me of this, but at the time that I booked it it wasn't... More

The setup of the property is different, makes you feel like you're some where else. I'm from Nassau and decided to have a little get away for the weekend. I was suppose to write a review from long time so I cant remember the gentleman's name but he was very helpful and inviting. Our room was just how the pictures... More

We liked the look of this on Trip Advisor so went and booked it. In life, first impressions count and this wasn't good. After getting ripped off by the taxi driver we rung the bell at the bottom of the steep steps up to the entrance, and waited and waited. No one came, so we had to haul our baggage... More

Based on some of the reviews that we'd read we were quite looking forward too our stay here, even if it was just for one night on a stop-over to Havana. We were however quite disappointed in our experience. I appreciate that everywhere on Nassau is expensive but at over $215 this felt like extremely poor value. Despite it stating... More

This is a delightful hotel tucked in a quiet part of Nassau away from the crowds and tourists. The hotel is clean and well mantained with a beautiful garden and breath-taking views being located at the top of a cliff. It is also very close to the airport and it will only cost you $12 for a taxi ride. If... More

The staff at this hotel were extremely accommodating! My husband was feeling ill and the chef came up personally to see what he could provide. I don't think we'd stay for many nights because we like to have our own kitchen and if we are going to do the hotel thing, would probably prefer compass point given its ocean front... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the west end of New Providence lies an exquisite hideaway. A STONE'S THROW AWAY is perched on one of the highest elevations by the coast. Here our Guests can indulge in a rare panoramic view of Nassau 's land and sea. The scenery boasts the best of the island's natural wonders, from the native pine forest by Lake Killarney to the brim of the coral reefs that protect the glimmering beaches of west Nassau. The property was recently built to echo the traditions of an old Bahamian home: wood floors and wood ceilings, louvered shutters and a large wrap around porch bring the visitors back to a quieter time long ago when the music of the islands could be heard in the whispers of the trade winds. ... more   less
