“This is a great value, great hospitality, and perfect location!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We stayed here 3 nights in June 2013.. Celia Dawkins, the owner, is the consummate host, and provided a warm reception and top-nothc service.

Only 10 minutes from hamilton, and basically in the middle of the island, it is perfectly located to see it all! Located next to Elbow Beach Resort, and one of the best, pristine beaches on the island is only 5 minutes walk.

My travel companion found Dawkins Manor listed in her Frommers Guide--and what a great find it was. It's centrally located with a short walk to Elbow Beach, a market, and the bus stop. Rarely have I been in a cleaner establishment. With dining prices so high in Bermuda, it was so good having a kitchen for breakfasts and suppers before and after a day of sightseeing. Long will I remember our breakfasts eaten alfresco in the lovely garden just outside our door. A plus to Dawkins Manor is Mrs. Dawkins herself--warm, accommodating and informative. The charge for the large, comfortable rooms is low by Bermuda standards but the value is tops.

My husband and I just returned from 8 days in Bermuda and can't wait to return. We stayed at Celia Dawkin's - Dawkin's Manor and just loved it! If you are looking for a swanky place- this isn't it, but the location for us was great and the kitchenette served the purpose, as food prices are outrageous in Bermuda. Makes NYC look inexpensive!! There is a grocery store at the bottom of the hill- so we bought breakfast and snack food there and stocked the kitchen. Bought some liquor at the Duty Free at the airport which was a savings. Kitchen is set up for 4 and small but well equipped. Celia is a gem- such a sweet lady and very helpful with information!!
We rented scooters- was the best thing we did! We scooted all over the island, all week... Went to St. George's- shopped and picked seaglass on the beach and visited the Perfume factory for a tour, The Dockyard for shopping and a fun game of mini-golf , the Crystal Caves, horseback riding on the beach and a day poking around Hamilton for more shopping.
Eating out was expensive, but fun. We found good food at the Paraquet and The Specialty Inn at a somewhat reasonable price. The best nights were at Elbow Beach-- the Lido in the outside bar. Sushi, wine and tapas.... pricey, but couldn't beat the view and the pleasant service with no rush...... Can't wait to return.... very relaxing vacation.

My family (spouse and two adult children) just spent a week at Celia Dawkins' guest house. The trip started with a two hour delay at JFK, getting us to the house at almost midnight. Mrs. Dawkins was very tired, but had stayed up until we arrived and she could show us how everything worked.

This was our first visit to Bermuda so it's impossible to know what to expect. As it turned out this place was a perfect fit our needs. There's an excellent market 5 minutes away on the main road, a bike rental on the grounds of the Elbow Beach Hotel (about 15 minutes away), and beach access via Elbow Beach, also 15 minutes away. We rented a suite with a kitchen, which probably saved $50 a day for breakfast alone. Even though we washed our own dishes, the unit was thoroughly cleaned every day and I'm sure the maid would have done it.

We rented a scooter from Elbow Beach and left the helmets and keys with Mrs. Dawkins for pickup by the rental company after we left. Very convenient. Riding a bike in Bermuda is not for the meek. I ride one in Manhattan often and I would never even attempt this on the very narrow, winding, shoulderless roads in Bermuda.

I would highly recommend getting the multi-day bus and ferry pass. We got ours at the main ferry terminal in Hamilton, which is a $10 cab ride away. (We had no trouble flagging cabs on the main road or in the parking lot of the market.)

Ocean views are nice, but paying extra for this feature at your lodging seems like a waste when you are surrounded by stunning views all day. For us, it was nice to come back to a quiet house with a private entrance to our rooms.

Also, March is a nice time to go. The cruise ships don't arrive until April so the sights near these areas (St George and the Naval Dockyards) were very quiet and uncrowded. The merchants are also very happy to see you! The downside is that the water is too cold to dive or snorkel without a wetsuit.

We will definitely return to Bermuda and Dawkins Manor one day!

Room Tip: We rented two rooms with an adjacent living room and kitchen - not a suite exactly but I think that...

Our family visited to Bermuda for the first time in Jan 2013. We booked through hotels.com. Then, I contacted Mrs. Dawkins for transportation from the airport. She mentioned that the rate was paid for two only, not including my son and advised $45.00 additional will be charged at the hotel. But hotels.com agent booked for us including 1 child is $160.00/ngt. I even saw the same amount $160.00/ngt on the hotels.com website. So, I called hotels.com but they keep transferring phone to a lot of departments and never resolve the problem. But they took my booking fees and nobody wanted to take responsible for my booking. So, I forwarded hotels.com confirmation to Mrs. Dawkins. She advised me that just come with the same price. She will resolve the problem with hotels.com manager. BE AWARE OF HOTELS.COM when you book with them. They will charged you for booking fees but they don't want to take responsible for customer that I was treated badly and unprofessional services. Mrs. Dawkins was very nice and kind. She even gave us a ride around the neighborhood the day we arrived. I will definitely go back to DAWKINS MANOR again. And also very convenience place to get to the hotel from the Airport by bus if you only have a carry on bag. You just need to take bus 10 or 11 from BDA and transfer another bus 7 at Hamilton without additional charges. Then get off at Bermuda college stop and walk about 3 minutes. And elbow beach is 5 minutes away and horseshoe beach is about 4 stops away by taking bus No. 7. Grocery store is 3 mins walk next to the bus stop. Hotel is very clean and quiet.

There is nothing negative I can say about Dawkin's Manor. My friend and I stayed here for 4 days in November, and it was absolutely wonderful. The Manor is a 5 minute walk from Elbow Beach, one block from a grocery/liquor store, and a 20 minute walk to Hamilton. Other than the location being ideal, the place itself is clean and friendly. Ms. Dawkin's was an amazing hostess. She was so helpful and even gave us a ride into town one day when she saw us walking. She gave us a brief tour around Hamilton before dropping us off. The room was extremely clean, comfortable, and cozy. It had all the amenities you would need for a short stay or an extended stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances as well as having an oven, stove, microwave, toaster, and fridge. The rates are fantastic as well. We paid $90 a night, which is basically unheard of in Bermuda. We couldn't have asked for a better stay as first-timers in Bermuda. Cherry on the sundae was receiving a Christmas card today in the mail from Celia. She certainly is a most gracious hostess. I was floored. I will most definitely be coming back for another stay at Dawkin's Manor.

We booked a great deal through travelocity and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Celia is an absolute peach. She was so friendly and helpful and really made our experience in Bermuda that much more special. The room was comfortable and had a little kitchen with a stove and and sink and dishes ready to use. There was plenty of room and we were just a short stroll to the nearby Elbow Beach which was one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen! The grocery store is literally at the end of the street and we were within walking distance of the City of Hamilton. I would definitely stay with Celia and her staff again in the future.
