Great Time

The hotel was beautiful, clean and a friendly attmusphere. The food in the hotel was a little pricy but again this is bermunda and the cost is up everywhere on the island cause the demand is high and it is hard to get the demanded needed. It's a short walk to the main area for shopping and eating out. Small taxi ride to the beachs or other city sites. All in all I would go back to this hotel in a heart beat and hope to make a trip yearly to the island and this hotel!

The bars along the main road that the hotel is on is a good time. It's right across from where a cruise ship docks.

"relaxing and enjoyable vacation"

Loved everything about this hotel -- gorgeous habor, magnificent garden, beautiful room in new wing, great location. Employees are very friendly and courteous and very helpful in restaurants and shopping. I took the free ferry to the Southhampton Princess and went to the beach, unfortunately I could not bathe because the water is very cold at this time of the year. Used the ferry to see the island. I would definitely return next year with my family.

Pleasant stay at the Fairmont Hamilton

Pleasant stay at the Fairmont Hamilton. Room not available until close to 4 p.m., but hotel is very close to downtown Hamilton, so walked to town, had lunch, then went back to hotel and relaxed around the pool. There was some confusion as to whether breakfast was included, I believed it was, and [...]at the front desk, made sure that it was included. (Good job [...]!) Other agents at front desk were very helpful on Sunday with bus info to St. George (not sure I would go back to St. George again. Not too much to see or do). Did take hotel ferry to Southampton beach, which was very, very crowded. Walked next door to Horseshoe Bay beach, which is absolutely beautiful, rented an umbrella and spent the afternoon. Would strongly recommned visiting this beach. BEAUTIFUL. Salt water pool at hotel wasn't as crowded as regular pool. Would recommend checking it out.Service at hotel is good, not great. Gratuities automatically added to all hotel bills, which makes me wonder if there is little incentive to provide great service.

christmas ghost town

Went to Bermuda by myself thinking in was in the carribean, surprised and dissappointed to find out it's off the Carolinas. Water was to cold to go in, cloudy skies & town was devoid of any life during X-mas holiday. Lonely going... Hotel staff advised me to reserve a taxi for 15 Min. ride back to airport, In the morning there was 7 taxis out front for 7 seven travellers all heading to the ONE & ONLY airport. No wonder the hotel does not provide a shuttle. $35 Taxi back + tip Each adds up to big$$$ for the islanders. Have a beautiful day...

Gold Club treatment at Hamilton Princess

My stay at the hotel was during hurricane Bill. The staff handled everything well and was helpful in every way. I was a Gold Club guest which I'm sure helped the level of the positive experience. If you can afford it - it's worth it! Access to the Southampton Princess was also a nice perk - great private beach.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

It's hard to get around in Bermuda. No sidewalks = walking can be dangerous. Rented scooters are also suicidal, as are pedal bikes. The roads are very narrow making it hard for even cars and buses. Taxis are very expensive, and buses are OK but you need to know what you are doing and where you are going. Don't know how folks get around really!???

Grand Vacation Squeezed into 4 Days!

Bermuda is the perfect destination for a single woman traveling alone, and the Fairmont Hamilton Princess was a very wise choice. The staff is cordial, attentive and helpful. The concierge is informative. The hotel location is central with great access to ferries, bus depot, restaurants and shopping within walking distance. I took advantage of the ferry to the Dockyard, and the bus to the Botanical Gardens. I walked to all the shops and some restaurants in Hamilton, so that I was never restricted to the hotel grounds. Bermuda is very safe and welcoming to all visitors, as is the Hamilton Princess.

The ferry to the Dockyard is very inexpensive, and is faster and more scenic than the bus. Also, the ferry landing is a shorter walk than to the bus depot.

Elegant get-away

This was just a few days of luxury for me; I wandered around the towns, using the ferry this time because the water is so relaxing. I did not use the fitness center or the pool, but there seemed to be plenty of activity in those areas, however I enjoyed watching others as I sat at the pool and read. I thought the little grab-and-go cafe for morning muffins and coffee was a nice touch for those in a hurry for business.
