“Off the Beaten Path Relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

What a refreshing bit of local hospitality! My partner and I, both independent budget-minded travelers, enjoyed our week-long stay enormously. Mrs. Greene was a lovely, gracious hostess. Breakfast was made to-order each morning - nothing over-the-top, but filling and delicious. We found the bus system to be easy to access from the B&B and very easy to navigate (purchase a weekly pass!). West Whale Bay Beach is a tiny, secluded, beautiful slice of beach paradise, and only a 15-minute walk away. Agreeing with some other reviewers here, the rooms were a bit rough around the edges, but clean, comfortable, and functional. We especially appreciated the in-room refrigerator, as we cooked our own dinner in the main kitchen once or twice in the week. Our favorite part about our stay? Greene's Guest House is located far from the busy cruise docks, giving us the quiet, slower-paced island experience. A wonderful experience at a reasonable price - would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I and two other couples spent a week at Greene's in Nov-2011, and all of us enthusiastically recommend it for the budget minded traveler. My take on the place is about 180 degrees opposite the very negative '1' rating provided by another reviewer. Even though one of our party needs to use a wheelchair, we found the nearby bus stops was a great asset for keeping costs down. One warning for handicap travelers - Bermuda buses are not really set up for wheelchairs. The only reason we were able to use them is that our friends has a light, fold-up chair which we could place into the one bag holder at the front of each bus.

Mrs. Greene is a very friendly warm hostess and her breakfasts while not fancy, are very substantial. It's not possible to leave her breakfast table hungry. Our rooms were a bit 'tired' but they were clean and quite large. It looked like all of the bathrooms had been relatively recently redone and they were clean and bright. Mrs. Greene went out of her way more than once to make our stay with her a pleasure. I do by all means recommend staying here.

We wanted to experience the real Bermuda and not the Hotel glitz that provides no unique “Bermuda Atmosphere”, so we purposely chose Greene’s Guest House for the local flavour and it was a fabulous choice. The facility was like staying with a friend; our guest room was large and well appointed with a fridge and microwave that let us set our schedule and not have it dictated by a service schedule. The full breakfast provided at the start of the day often let us pack a snack for lunch and set a leisurely dinner. As for our hostess, Mrs. Greene is a gem and personifies the friendliness of the Bermuda people, always willing to do that little more to make her clients’ stay a Bermudaful experience. In providing house services to her guests, she is ably complemented by her assistant, Raymond, whose smile and joyful outlook on life always seemed to make our day even more special. Next visit to Bermuda, we’re coming right back here, no need to look for other accommodations.

Greene's guest house is a viable alternative to dropping multiple paychecks on the more expensive properties on the island.

The guest house is quite proper and nicely appointed, but by no means upscale, fancy or grandiose. The rooms showed some wear and tear, but not to a point where it was a problem. The pool area was clean and quiet and offered nice views of the sound. The pool is nice, deep and well kept. The venue location is not on the beach but in Southampton within striking distance of the best sights in Bermuda, including short bus rides to the crown jewel aka Horseshoe Bay. The hostess is a lovely lady who puts the comfort of her guests first. She was very accommodating to our needs.

In summary, the great location, excellent hospitality and read: affordable and reasonable, but not low prices make Greene's a smart choice. For many, being able to stay in a good valued, affordable property can make the difference of being able to book a trip to Bermuda.

Room Tip: Ask for something with a view of The Sound

This was my first trip to Bermuda and I feel that staying at Greene's Guest House was the perfect complement to a perfect trip! Bermuda itself is amazing, however, staying at Greene's was so comfortable and easy that there was absolutely no stress involved with the entire vacation. Mrs. Greene, the proprietor, is truly a special woman and she brought so much to my experience in Bermuda. She went out of her way to be accomodating and her guest house is absolutely charming! There is a small beach just a 10 minute walk from the guest house and the main beaches are a $10 cab ride or a 10 minute bus ride away.

The only negative about staying at Greene's is that it is roughly 20 minutes outside of Hamilton (the main city in Bermuda). This turned out to be both a positive and a negative though because Greene's offered a quiet retreat from the city.

I would absolutely recommend staying here as I think it is one of the most reasonable places to stay on the island. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Some rooms have an in-suite bathroom and others do not. We staying in one with a bathroom and I wou...

Greene's Guest House has everything going for it - it's in a great location, it's extremely good value for money, the guest house itself is lovely and the owners are lovely providing a very personal service.
Greene's is located near all the best beaches inlcuding Horseshoe Bay, as well as being situated by one of the major ferry terminals.
Incase you don't know already, Bermuda is an extremely expensive place to go. Greene's recognises this and as well as being excellent value for money, they provide fridge's in the room so that you can buy and keep your own food, as well as use of their kitchen to make food. They also provide breakfast which is great. Our room was an extremely large twin room with a very good sized bathroom. The swimming pool is great and has a beautiful view.
Mr and Mrs Greene really looked after us and were wonderful throughout our stay.
I can't recommend this place highly enough!
We had friends that were staying in the Southampton Fairmont - the most expensive hotel on the island, and they wished they'd stayed at Greene's with us!

We had a wonderful time staying at the Greene's Guest House. I think the earlier reviewer with negative comments should have stayed at one of the large hotels rather than a B&B. It should be well known to her that B&Bs do generally not offer 24-hr service nor do they have large staffs to take care of every little need. We got exactly what we expected and more in terms of service at the guest house. The other reviewers are spot on with regard to Mrs. Greene. She is very nice, makes wonderful breakfast, and gave us great advice to help plan our days. She even drove some of our party to a grocery store for supplies. My cousin came over for a visit by the pool one day as he was getting married at the Reefs. Rather than wait for a bus or expensive cab, Mr. Greene drove him and his fiancé back to the Reefs. That's service that you won't find at one of the large hotels.
