3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lise was a great and helpful host. The rooms are nice with A/C, hot water, desk, wifi and TV although the bed was very soft. They offer great food including their famous pizzas in wood oven and great breakfast including fresh tropical fruits. They are building a swimming pool and its deck. There is no elevator so if you have any physical limitation request a room close to the lobby. Also there are only 4 parking spots if you rented a car.

Home sweet home! amazing views, wonderful food, clean and air-conditioned room, and staff who always greets you with a smile. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting the island. We will definitely be back soon!

the area is very welcoming the people are great, atmosphere is tranquil , air is very clean, the view is to die for , so comfortable to stay up there the view is at the top i suggest that's where u book, thou you can also get it from the restaurant

Excellent dinner, their pizza is the best (I'm a pizza snob). We ate there several times during our visit. Great setting above the city. Lise is great an excellent hostess. Service was excellent. I look forward to eating there more often when I relocate to Dominica in the fall.

I visited Dominica for two weeks in April with my girlfriend and we stayed in The Champs the whole time. It was the right decision. The hotel is located in Picard up a steep street above the rest of the town. The view over the bay is awesome and you can watch the sunset from the bar. Lise, the owner, is great. Not only does she run a very good hotel, but she knows all the places to go and see and can organize everything you need, from the rental car to a private tourguide for your hikes into the mountains. Should something go wrong, she does everything to solve your problem. Included in the room fee is a local cell-phone which you can use free of charge and to call the hotel for free transfers in the region of Picard. Breakfast is à la carte and served each morning on the patio overlooking the bay. You get fresh fruit, juice, coffee, with eggs, toast and bacon. At the moment they are installing a pool, which wasnt ready yet, when we were there, but there is a jaccuzi which you can use when you want. All in all we were very happy with The Champs, the staff and the service. If you are staying in the north, choose this place, Lise will surely make your stay perfect.

Lise and Hans are exceptional hosts happy to help with advice on trips, taxis, restaurants etc. There are stunning views from the terrace, restaurant and breakfast bar and we enjoyed watching the iguana in the tree each morning. Rooms are plain but have good facilities. The food in the bar is excellent but we found the live music and TV a little distracting, probably more suitable for the students. All in all a very comfortable hotel and good location for coastal attractions. It will be even better when the pool is finished.

Had a great stay. Service was impeccable. I would definitely stay again at this hotel. Shuttle service was fantastic. All employees were friendly. One of the best hotels in Dominica. Great breakfast. Easy access to the Ross School of Medicine.

The welcome to the hotel was quite elegant and nice, got served with a drink of your choice at the well stock bar. The rooms are real comfortable and the room design is great. i love how the spaces are utilized. The food is great and there are nightly activities to keep you entertained. The owners are very friendly. Its a great place to stay.

This was my second trip to Dominica. I wanted to stay near Ross University and was pleasantly surprised with Champs. The owners were always available and willing to help. The room was clean and cool. They have a small restaurant so we stayed and ate on location.

This is a small 5 room hotel with excellent personal service. The views are beautiful and you get a sea view with every room. The breakfast is delicious, you get fresh fruit, eggs and bacon every morning served on a balcony overlooking the ocean and lovely gardens. There is a really good restaurant on site that has different theme nights which attracts tourists and locals, which gives it a good atmosphere. The hotel is up a steep hill; however you are given a mobile phone so that you can call the hotel and they will pick you up if you are local. Lise and Hans are very welcoming hosts and they are backed up by a great team of staff, they make you feel at home and are always around to help you.While we were there we got married at the local beach, and when we returned they had decorated our room and a private terrace with candles and petals, which was stunning and totally unexpected. We were then served a meal on the private terrace, it was the perfect end to a perfect day. Lise,Hans and all the Champs team made our stay very special on this very special island, we can't thank them enough.
