“It couldn't have been a nicer start to our holiday”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed at the Hummingbird Bed & Breakfast in January 2013 before taking a bare boat sailboat round the BVI. Yvonne the owner, was delightful and helpful and cooked a great breakfast. We were arriving later on in the day and Yvonne arranged for a cab to pick us up from the airport at a very reasonable cost. She also recommended a local deli that we could order food from and, because we were arriving late, she picked it up for us so we could relax and eat with a bottle of wine in her very pretty and cozy courtyard. The bedrooms were nicely furnished and very comfortable. I honestly wouldn't want to stay anywhere else as this was perfection for us. Thank you Yvonne for sharing your beautiful place and wonderful hospitality with us.

Yvonne, the owner and hostess, was most accommodating. The room accommodations suited us fine for our one week holiday stay. You are even able to play with her cats and dogs. Poppy and Jack meet you everyday the cats say hi in their own way. The animals made our stay more enjoyable at the house.

After a full breakfast in the morning, our day trips consisted of walking around Tortola and taking ferry rides to Virgin Gorda and Peter Island. Both islands has breathtaking views. Our trip was made enjoyable by Mr. Lonely, our taxi driver and Lilli, our new friend on Virgin Gorda, who sells souveniers he makes himself.

A return trip to the island in the future and we would definitedly stay here again!

Room Tip: We had room # 1 which faced East. Wonderful view of the sunrise.

Yvonne couldn't have been more hospitable. Arranging food from the excellent deli in our room fridge for our late arrival. Looking after our luggage while we went sailing for a week and letting us relax and use all her facilities (pool, shower room, honesty bar etc.) when we arrived back at 9am. Even had our room ready by 11am. Breakfast was excellent. Location very convenient. The view was lovely and the wild life (cats, dogs, humming birds and other types of small birds, lizards, even a tiny snake) kept us amused for hours. (The snake was a rare visitor and probably brought in by one of the cats so do not be put off by this!)

Another success thanks to Tripadvisor reviewers.

Everything as shown on their web site - the rooms a bit "fussier" & " frilly" than I expected - think " doilies " but very spacious, very clean & secure.

Can see why it reviews so well although it's not really my sort of place - too many cats & ornaments. But, but really pleased we stayed . Only has 4 guest rooms but plenty of space around the pool & honesty bar. Great views from the terrace, lots of hummingbirds and a great breakfast.

Walking distance of the Sunsail base if yr luggage has wheels. Great sports club opposite offering good food, low prices & great service. Yvonne happy to store your luggage if not able to pick yr boat up until 6pm.

Over the holidays we visited the BVI primarily to spend some time on beautiful Anegada. While in transfer we stayed on Tortola and decided for the 1st time to stay at Hummingbird. The location is excellent if you want to be based in Road Town as a lot of the area's attractions are within walking distance. The accommodations were very good and Yvonne was very hospitable and her breakfast was outstanding. There is a little restaurant right down the street that has excellent service and food and the pricing is very affordable.

We’ve stayed in Road Town many times in 20 years, and this was the best. The Hummingbird is wonderfully located about 7 stories up a hill, yet only a half-mile (an easy walk without luggage) from Moorings/Sunsail/Footloose. There are only 4 rooms, and ours (5 nights) was clean and comfortable. The pool and patio were also clean, and surrounded by beautiful flowering trees and many birds, and good Wifi. The honor bar was well stocked, and the warm breakfast was very good. Because of the hill and the breeze, we never even considered the A/C. Yvonne, the owner/hostess, treated us very nicely.

Previous notes described problems we found unimportant. There are several cats and a few dogs there, and they sleep all the time, only in the public areas, and really ignore the guests. Unless you are severely allergic or really HATE animals, this isn’t an issue. The notes about how to flush the toilets is important . . . they function differently in the Caribbean than in the states.

Having lived on a sailboat throughout the Caribbean for six years makes us more objective. Staying at the Hummingbird is like staying with an aunt or a sister at her upper middle-class home in the Caribbean, and you are treated exactly like that. The five well-deserved circles on TripAdvisor are not the same as “5 stars”. And we’ll go back to Yvonne’s anytime.

We arrived late at night after a LONG journey from Manchester UK - hungry and thirsty. No food, but Yvonne offers a well stocked "honesty bar" by her pool - it was a lifesaver!
Nice room with en-suite, both immaculately clean and everything worked properly. Free WiFi worked well.
The cooked breakfast was good and served promptly. We paid $150 + tax per night, good value for Tortola, but this place has just 4 rooms so it can be difficult to get in.
Yvonne has some cats around the place but we didn't find them intrusive. (No chance of rodents here).
Very hospitable and well appointed sports club just below the house which does really good bar food and there's a fab French Deli 5 minutes away for lunch etc.
Don't expect executive standards, this is a guest house, but we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Good location for Sunsail / Moorings marina
