Graycliff Hotel And Restaurant4.0 out of 5.0

A gem of a place situated in an old mansion. The dinning is excellent. The drawing room is such a great place to hang and smoke hand rolled cigars while listening to live piano and sipping cocktails or drinking wine. We keep going back to Nassau for this place.
Spent a long weekend at Graycliff. Heard wonderful things and the restaurant is amazing. The staff was very good, helpful and pleasant. The groinds and rooms need updating. Loved the location and amenities (restaurant, cigars, wine cellar)but did not think it was worth the money.
Cool place to walk though for 30 minutes while in Antigua. I enjoyed the cigar store. You can actually watch them roll cigars and learn a little about the different papers they use. A little tip jar is available and probably a nice gesture if you do not purchase anything. The chocolate shop was okay. I like my chocolate, but thought the quality could be better. Friendly people. Check out the pool too. Old school chic. Worth a visit.
Overall, a lovely property. Old mansion with a lot of stuff. I say stuff because there is everything from a pool, to a pizza restaurant, to a cigar factory and many other things. There are also a lot of activities on the property as well, related to the various businesses located there. This is all great, except you wouldn't know any of this unless you read the binder in the room once you get there. However, by then offerings are usually full so it doesn't work out well. The rooms were spacious and included a mini bar. Also, keep in mind this is not a typical type of tropical stay, but more of a jungle retreat. Little things about this place made this 4 stars for me: * No screens on the windows, so you have to constantly keep them closed and use the air conditioning. * The voicemail box not cleared out between guests. * Not being told ahead of time when certain things would be closed. * No tour or overview of the property upon arrival. * Having to walk by dinner guests at the nice restaurant after a day on the water to get to your room. This felt more like a business than a hospitality endeavor. That little spark of genuine caring for guests was missing.
Whilst the hotel is a premium price for the Downtown Nassau area, it's worth a visit. We stayed for a single night at the end of our trip. We didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't comment on that. The room was very big and comfortable. Had a great feel to it (which felt nice in Nassau, which is otherwise all a bit too "Cruise ship/Paradise Island super resort-ish" for my liking. The hotel itself comes into it's own when you see the other things that are there - the Cigar factory is well worth a visit! even just to take in the wonderful cigar smell upon entering the door. They let you look around, but they do offer a short (very short) tour for about 10 dollars per person (It's not worth it, as the tour doesn't really go beyond a corridor with some signs on the wall) - just go an have a quick look instead. The other absolute must do, is to ask for a tour of the wine cellar. I'm not sure if they advertise it, but I asked at reception and a very kind member of staff took us down to see the incredible collection, at no cost (about 300 thousand bottles with some very rare and old wines), it's stored in the cellar which is a converted colonial prison block. If you really do have some money, then you can dine down there (but that's getting into silly money territory). in conclusion - a wonderful experience if you can afford it (I couldn't normally, but having just our final night there was fantastic and worth a bit of overspending).
We were told that this is a 5 Star Restaurant....DO NOT BE FOOLED!!! This is NOT a 5 Star restaurant, although they charge 5 Star prices!! I would love to post some of the pictures we took of the night we ate there....OMG, a dead viney plant was our centerpiece...on a wooden table, NO LINENS at all!!! What a joke!! I would NEVER recommend this place....OH by the way, even though we had a confirmed reservation and arrived on time...we waited 45 minutes for a table?!?!!? NOT 5 STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cafe Martinque or NOBU are much better in every way!!!
As a cigar enthusiast I've smoke Graycliff cigars for years. When on a cruise visiting Nassau, I couldn't resist swinging by. My wife and I enjoyed a handmade cigar and a nice rum while relaxing in the very beautiful environment of the hotel lobby. We also made a quick stop in the factory. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable visit. I highly recommend it.
Graycliff is a beautiful hotel located very close to Nassau's downtown. Always has been my favorite place... however the service it is unbelievable... not the first time that they forgot our orders, seems like we annoyed the staff because they simply ignored you. And God bless you if you are brave enough to complain... they will show you attitude and answer you back with the worst attitude! Bye Graycliff, it was good but with your team there i simply can't take it anymore.
best for adults, quiet, beautiful gardens, great pool area. all within walking distance of all the shopping in downtown Nassau ( if you choose(. I spent a weekend there with friends, relaxed, relaxed and relaxed some more. We never left the property!!! The Graycliff Hotel and Restaurant, which do I like better ? I love them both. 5 star dining that is really difficult to beat, 5 star service, very friendly and helpful staff, and they have one of the largest private collections of wine in the world. I cant wait to go back.
What a classic old hotel, within walking distance of Government House and the art museum. The swimming pool is huge and stunning with the intricate tile inlay at the bottom, let the cool water caress you after spending a warm afternoon shopping. Loaded with antiques, lots to do with he cigar factory around the corner and the chocolate shop next door.
