Bentley's Boutique Hotel, BW Premier Collection
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Osprey
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 2, 2012

This was picked via the Internet as we knew we wanted to be within 50 miles of Busch Gardens for tomorrow.

This family room was £80.00 for the night in this smart boutique hotel on the Tamiami trail on the Gulf coast.

We arrived late afternoon after our 350 mile drive from Key West. From the road it is less than inspiring, bland concrete block building with almost tacky signage.

However, inside it is seriously "cool". Staff are smooth and good looking American, efficient, polite and no nonsense in a very positive way. There is an underlying English theme, London underground wall art, rooms are named after underground stations etc. Reception area tables have art and photography books to browse.

We headed for the pool which is fab, realised we could eat there and then discovered that draft beer was buy one get one free and "bucket" size margaritas were two dollars a pop. There are similar offers every night of the week.

Bar food was good, huge portions as always in the US, quick to arrive after ordering, and tasty.

All in all, top value at this hotel in essentially, the middle of nowhere, actually ten minutes south of Sarasota, worth a visit for a couple of days.

We placed our reservation for 3 days based for the most part on previous reviews of Bentley's on Trip Advisor and weren't disappointed. Renovated room with king bed and modern decor was very nice, along with a small outdoor privacy area at the end of the pool and Tiki Bar area. The resulting feel was more of a beach resort than a hotel.

Because of our schedule we ended up having a couple 8-9 pm meals out by the tiki bar. Bartenders did a good job but the first night they seemed severely understaffed for the number of people needing service and we seemed to get lost in the shuffle. For a more demanding customer this probably would have been very upsetting. We solved it after waiting for service 20-30 minutes by ordering our drinks at the bar and returning them to our table. Ditto with ordering meals - got a menu and went back to the bar to order.

The next night was better but still some issues with the service. I think the 2 of us sitting quietly at a table tended to be overlooked a bit versus the other tables having 4,6 or more people who required more regular attention and were more obvious because of noise level if nothing else. This is just an observation and not meant to be a jab at the staff.

Price is midrange for peak winter season, but you do get what you pay for here. We'll be back again.

We stayed for two nights on the way from Miami to Tampa to visit the local area.
The hotel was exactly as shown on the Internet and in keeping with these excellent reviews.
We particularly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere around the pool and Tiki bar area and the bedrooms with the most comfortable beds we have found in any hotel.
We look forward to returning for longer next time.
Thank you

If there is anything that we here at Bentley's can do for you in the future, please do not hesitate to call upon us.

On behalf of myself and the rest of the staff at Bentley's, thank you and we look forward to being of service in the future.

We cannot recommend this hotel highy enough. The rooms, the restaurants, the staff, the pool area etc etc! So pleased we found this place. We booked for four nights but decided to stay for six. A special mention for the beds which were by far the best we stayed in during our three week stay in Florida.We just loved the whole place. As the owners are British we feel some people might think we are biased but honestly this place is so worth a visit. It is so easy to visit all the keys. Go on try it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool

Dear Guest,

On behalf of everyone at Bentley's, we thank you for your patronage. You comments about the bedding are ones that we have heard in the past, and are pleased that you have found them just as equally as comfortable as our other guests.

Our owners, as you have stated, are from England, and have brought with them that "European Finesse."

Thank you so much for your kind words and recommendations! We look forward to serving you in the future if you are ever "on this side of the pond" again!

Cheers!

After printing discount vouchers for various hotels in the area, this was the first one we stopped at in the afternoon to look over. Upon seeing it we immediately decided to stay overnight and fortunately there was a room available. The hotel was easily accessible to our places of interest. We returned to the hotel in the evening for a meal in Morgans, the hotel restaurant, where we had a very late early bird and it was excellent - including the very fresh fish and chips - better than most places back home in the UK! The waiter even brought us malt vinegar - a sign other than Bentley and Morgan that there is British influence. The hot buffet breakfast was very good and copious, the waitress bringing additional orange juice, toast, coffee and tea to what was out on the buffet. Unfortunately, we did not go to the Tiki Bar/café as we had not realized it was open in the evenings but would have loved to have tried the $2 cocktails. Our room on the ground floor facing the carpark was clean, quiet and comfortable.
The only downside: upon leaving, a pair of sandals was forgotten in the room and even though a phone call to housekeeping was made later the same day the sandals were never found.

Dear Guests,

On behalf of myself and everyone else at Bentley's, I would like to take this moment to thank you for choosing to stay with us. I know that you have a variety of accommodation options available to and are pleased that you had decided to stay with us.

As you have stated, our establishment has a very distinct British/European flair about it. Large portions of the property have a touch of British influence such as: all the guest rooms are named after tube stops in the London Underground, all our facilities are named after a British automobile, serving traditional English High Tea and so forth.

I have passed on your kind words to our Food and Beverage department in regards to the Fish and Chips and the complimentary continental buffet we offer.

In regards to your lost sandals, please feel free to contact me directly to see if there is anything that I can do to help recover your these items.

Thank you again for your warm remarks, and hope that you will visit us again if you are ever state side!

Cheers!

With style and grace this was an exceptional hotel to reside in for a week. The service and attention to our needs, congratulations Greg, were to be applauded. The rooms were immaculate and the beds, you would hibernate in if you had the time. The Tiki Bar is a great place to chill out at the end of your day, also great to eat as well, top marks for presentation of food and taste. Location and access by car was simple and uninhibited.
Style Service and undoubtedly totally Satisfied.
Carolyn we will see you again !!

The hotel was upscale, clean, fun and very nicely renovated. You can tell that a lot of effoandante thought was put into the work.
The pool area is fantastic and the atmosphere is fun and vacation-y! We had great service at the tiki bar, in the cafe and from the owner himself! An overall wonderful place to stay.

Dear Valued Patron,

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to write such kind remarks concerning Bentley's Boutique Hotel!

Over the course of the last two years, we have gone through a major re-build of the property, going all the way down to the concrete slab the property rests on.

Our owners play an intricate part of day to day operations and are always willing to listen to our guests when it comes to design and comfort. Large sections of the property were re-designed just to accommodate growing customer comments about what they would like to see on property and we have taken those words to heart!

I have passed on your comments to our Tiki Bar and Cafe staff and they are delighted that we were able to make your stay more enjoyable.

If there is anything that we can do in the future to assist you, please do not hesitate to call upon us.

Thank you and look forward to being of service to you in the future!
