We only stayed one night on a layover on our way home from the family islands, but it was great. The service was excellent, the beds where very comfortable, and the feel of the place is very special. The building is not new and shiny, but it is nice and has a quality comfortable feel. We stayed in the "Tile" room but most places would have called suite. A large sitting room, a bedroom, a bath, and a toilet room. Nice rooms in Nassau are expensive, at least here I felt like I got my moneys worth. There are also lots of activities here, I just did not have enough time to enjoy them. I hope to return some time for a longer stay.

Beautiful period property with an incredible wine cellar & very upmarket restaurant. Room was large & comfortable if a little tired. Food was good and service attentive but the prices were incredibly high. One night with dinner & breakfast was over $1,000 and whilst the stay was very enjoyable I certainly wouldn't describe it as good value. Definately worth trying for special occasions but close your eyes when settling the bill !!

Graycliff Hotel is just wonderful. Right from arrival you are treated with the utmost care and attention. Nothing is too much trouble. It's a stunning setting perfectly preserved from days gone by. Everything we could have wished for and more. Our evening meal was stunning as was breakfast, I would certainly recommend the eggs Benedict. We were given a personal tour of the wine cellar and the cigar factory both of which were fascinating. We will certainly return.

It claims to be 5 star and that is certainly reflected in the room price. The rooms were very nice and tastefully decorated but the noisy air-conditioning outside the room meant that the sleep quality was very poor. The bathroom was very well appointed but when we had a shower despite running it for ages it was only luke warm and the same was true for the water in the taps and bath. The grounds are beautiful and the staff were generally helpful. But it is not the quiet and peaceful hotel that it purports to be. The jazz pianist who was playing in the lounge when we were there was first class.

Graycliff is a refined, elegant hotel which perfectly captures the aura of nineteenth century civility while allowing just enough of modern comforts to make for a perfect stay in Nassau. Our expectations were high -- based largely on Trip Advisor reviews -- but were greatly exceeded. An ambiance of old money, tastefully appointed, but with a casual family feeling from a flat-out perfect staff that makes whatever problems your life may have feel trivial (at least while you are here!!) Special mention to Monique at the front desk, Karen the hostess, Monty the waiter and Henry the bartender. Each of them has a long history here, and they are absolutely integral to the charm and graciousness of the hotel. We loved where we stayed, the Woodes Rogers room on the second floor of the old house, filled with period antiques but with a spacious and modern bathroom. The restaurants, the bar, the amazingly expansive grounds and spectacular pool -- any future visit to Nassau will include a mandatory stay at Graycliff. Perfect location with plenty to walk to, but still a serene setting. Again, compliments to the world class staff. You are the best and you made our visit memorable.

My wife and I were staying at a resort when we decided to take a side trip into Nassau for a day. We had heard about the Graycliff Hotel, so on a whim we decided to walk in to the hotel and check the place out. First, the hotel and the grounds are breathtaking. Gorgeous interior to the hotel. Very tastefully done and the atmosphere takes you back in time. Second, the hotel grounds are gorgeous. Very lush, private, well manicured grounds. We saw several pools that were amazing, absolutely beautiful. We then walked over to the Cigar shop where we were allowed to watch the cigars being hand made and we chatted with the cigar rollers. The staff at the hotel was very friendly. My wife and I grabbed some drinks and sat by the pool. Overall I would say we had a lovely time at the Graycliff. Can’t wait to go back!

1st visit here was in 2009... place is still remarkably beautiful! Enjoyed visiting the cigar and chocolate shop. I think it’s one of the oldest buildings in Nassau and worth walking around the property. Would definitely love to enjoy dinner here during next visit

Graycliff is like the non-hidden gem of Nassau: it’s beautifully colonial and currently works as a hotel, restaurant, cigar & chocolate maker and boasts one of the biggest wine cellars in the world. If you’re a wine aficionado you need to go there, get yourself a drink and ask if you could please visit their cellar: it’s insane! So much so they don’t actually let you take photos of it btw. The gardens are something out of a period English film, beautifully tropical and almost jungle-like. The pool is unreal, it’s been made to look like an outdoor Roman bath. Inside the style is 100% Georgian English, complete with lots of rugs and a semi-grand piano, liquor cabinets etc. Personally I wouldn’t choose to stay there just because I do like my modern mod cons but I would happily spend every afternoon there enjoying G&Ts in the veranda or by the pool!

Beautiful place full of history!we went for dinner,excellent service,dishes well prepared,nice pianist,dont miss the chocolate souffle at the end! Very charming hotel in the downtown area. Winston Chuchill visited this hotel during WWII. The third wine cellar of the world! Dont miss it👌

My family and I stopped into the Grayciff last week for the wine tasting lunch. It exceeded all of our expectations. Michael gave us an amazing tour. He was so knowledgeable and didn't mind answering all the questions we had, especially about the wine cellar. Mika across the street at the tasting room made us feel so special too. By the time we had lunch we were already so pleased and things just kept getting better. Our servers, Glenn, Nyshad and team were the best. We honestly felt so welcome. Karen stopped by multiple times to ensure our visit was perfect. To make an already amazing day even nicer, one of the employees, Terrance, took time out of his lunch break to help us find the next location we wanted to go to. Thank you for such amazing hospitality!
