After checking out many of the other hotels in Port Blair, I concluded that this is best choice. That said, don't expect quality. The hotel is relatively clean if you don't look too closely. There were ants in the room, but I saw no cockroaches. I was in Room 601, which was quiet, had a comfortable double bed and a great view of the bay (the view sells the hotel). Unfortunately, the room does not have a balcony. The room had an electric kettle and coffee mugs - no tea/coffee was provided. There is reliable hot water, but no shower curtain. The TV in the room didn't work.

The hotel hosts parties in their small lawn, so it can be quite noisy in the evening with blaring music if there is a party. Since the hotel is on a cliff, there is often a nice breeze. There is not easy access to the beach but it is a short walk to the strand.

The food is good, service is average. The breakfast is ok but the coffee is terrible. Thank God for Folger's one cup coffee bags.

Dear Madam,

Thank you for dedicating some of your time and reviewing us on Tripadvisor.

We are very sorry to acknowledge that our standards did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately what may have occurred was that the room you were assigned upon arrival may have skipped our usual quality control which we perform daily.

We'll keep notice of your comments which we consider precious in order to up-grade the quality of our services.

Please note that guests' satisfaction is the main goal of our hotel chain.

We sincerely hope you will give us another chance to serve you to demonstrate the professional care we dedicate to our customers, in the meantime we pray you to accept our apologies.

I could not agree with you more that Hotel Sinclairs Baview is the best option in Port Blair with majority of it's rooms facing the sea with a seamless view of the Bay of Bengal.

Best regards. Have a good day.

Hey people my last trip to Port blair changed my view towards the place. If some one wants to mix business with pleasure then SINCLAIRS Hotel Port Blair is the right place. I must mention ; that we got a fabulous support from the staff of the hotel for making arrangements of the conference from cordless mike to laser pointers all was available and the arrangement of lunch near the Seaside Lawn was a wonderful idea given by the Manager of the Hotel. Their courtesy and gratitude is fantastic.

Had stayed there for a night. Room allocated to me was stinking and the room service was absolutely pathetic. Would not recommend this to any one.

Actually i don't know What have I done without that hotel as I am a strict vegetarian even visiting that place for the first time.
But really that hotel made my whole trip remembered forever.
Starting from the welcome drink to arranging for places to be visited by us, everything is so perfect.
Even the staff out there is nicest of all. They have arranged special food for us as my mother prefer it without onions and garlic. Even the room service is quick and responsive to your complaints (if you have one).
The food quality and services is par my expectations.
One great quality they have is that they give you more than promised and even don't cry to earn extra pennies from you. They had given us coupons of Rs.250 per person per day to be spent within Hotel (except some conditions) which they even didn't mentioned anywhere in their package

Perched high on the cliffs, a good value hotel in Port Blair. It is close to beaches and has commanding views, airy rooms which accommodate entire family. Rooms could be better but they are ok as of now - some renovation was going on at the time of our stay. Restaurant downstairs is slow but food is good quality. You need to take a taxi to go anywhere in Port Blair, but at the same time it is a small city. The promenade leading to the hotel next to the road is pleasant after dark.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days. Rooms are good but not maintained. The view from room is a nice rocky beach. Food is decent. Actually, there is nothing much to do at this hotel. I think It is better to stay at another similar hotels in city which are available much cheaper, are more clean and services are better and then, enjoy the site seeing in port blair.
