Did a last minute quick getaway to Bermuda in Mid-July. Found it hard to find last minute accommodations, but finally got a room at Robin's Nest.
Taxi ride from the airport cost about $35 (including tips etc). Robin's Nest is about a 15-20 minute walk north of Hamilton tucked away in a suburban neighborhood. We got a nice room (#2) on the top level of the "apartments" with a distant sea view and overlooking the pool. The room was quite spacious, clean, and well equipped. There is cable TV and free Wi-Fi access as well.
After we arrived and got settled in Renee offered to drive us down to the grocery store and bus station in Hamilton (we choose to use the bus system during our short stay and didn't rent scooters). This was a great help as I think initially it would have been difficult to find on foot (taxi costs approx $10 to central Hamilton from Robin's Nest).
If you choose to use the bus from Robin's Nest the bus stop is close and the bus system is great, except that route 4 (the loop that goes by Robin's Nest) ends at either 6pm or 615pm depending on the day. We didn't find it a big deal as we just did things in the area in the evening (such as Spanish Point and Admiralty Park which were a close walk down the road). Bus passes are they way to go as the the bus drivers are not supposed to accept cash, just tickets or passes. Bus is the most affordable way to travel and it can get you just about anywhere on the island and also includes the ferry service.
One night the owners family had a little get together and invited us down to for some food and socializing. We felt welcome and enjoyed our time listening and learning a bit about life in Bermuda (was definitely a high lite of our trip).
All in all if we do return to Bermuda some day we hope to stay at Robin's Nest again.
Thanks to Renee and her family.
