We loved this place!

Rented one of the cottages and it was perfect for a romantic getaway. We had no complaints about the cleanliness of our room and loved the view of the turquoise beach. Location was perfect for us because it was quiet and we took the No. 10 bus to wherever we wanted to go. In fact, a couple was married on our beach one late afternoon and the bride commented to me "She wished they were staying at the Orange Hill because it was so peaceful compared to the craziness of their resort".

Don't waste money on taxis, just walk down the driveway and the number 10 bus stops every 15 minutes to Nassau.

good value

This Place is a little past it's prime and dare I say Bohemian. However many things make up for that. The owner is charming. The location near the airport and out of Nassau proper are appealing. While not directly on the beach it has proximity and views. The Bahamian food served is reasonably priced and excellent. It's an excellent overnight for people traveling to the out islands, or for and inexpensive trip to paradise during a long winter. I highly recommend provided your not looking for "Atlantis".

Good value as a stopover and for scuba divers

This is a cool place, good funky vibe and very friendly helpful staff. Honor bar and great food, especially the pot roast and cracked conch. We love stopping here before getting early morning flights to Bahamas Air to the Out Islands. Like a home away from home.

Not bad for the price

This place was clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was home cooked and reasonably priced. The vibe was quite, stick to yourself. Also it is a $30 cab ride to downtown so factor that in when considering price! The owner was super friendly and helpful.

Rat Trap

They should not charge for the rooms, they are so bad. We stayed there for no more than 3 hours, packed and moved away. It was scary. The rooms did not have light fixtures, they were exposed bulbs dangling from wires. The pool was green. The owners' restaurant was their house. Doors did not lock, bathrooms were grungy, Uneven sidewalks with ragged grass. We tried, but just could not lower our standards. Lost a night room $, but well worth the change. Went to the Sheraton, and walked in. Not the cheapest, but at least you felt safe. "Beach" was down the hill and across the road. No sand. Just hard coral and bushes. Not sure these other folks stayed that rated it acceptable. Its Not where I visited.

Creepy

We stayed one night here because it was the closest to the airport and we were leaving at 5:30 the next morning. The owner and people that work there are very friendly and run a home-like inn that has a bar that's on an honor system. The dining room was closed the Saturday night we were there. The facility is extremely old and tired. The room was less than basic - the bathroom was very old, tiny. The walls are paper thin - we were up all night thanks to the couple in the next room. At $150+ the only thing we saved was cab fare. Definitely would not stay here again!

Had a good stay

The ad on [...]stated the room I was booking had a kitchenette. When we arrived, we only had a fridge and microwave. Not very convenient but we got by with what we had. Contact the hotel directly to see what you are actually getting.

Thanks for a nice stay!

This hotel is only 10 minutes from the airport. By taxi it will cost 12-15 USD. The hotel itself is very pretty it is set on top of a hill and overlooks the ocean. It has a couples swing set and tables outside to eat. It has a study/computer room and a restaurant attached to it. There is also a TV room and sitting area and a honour system for sodas and snacks.When we arrived they were very nice and upgraded us to an apartment. It was huge. There was a full kitchen full dining table and it was 2 separate rooms. It would be ideal for families. The rooms are clean and it was fairly quiet. The only thing is that if you chose to eat dinner at the attached restaurant dinner is a bit pricey and go early as they tend to run out of food. If you want cheaper options 10 minute walk away there is a Chinese place that is tasty and low key and an Italian place that is upscale. There is a gourmet market in the same plaza but apparently closes at 5-6 pm as we arrived at 7:30pm. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.
