If I have to tell you something positive, there are two points Ocean view from my balcon and nice young ladies at the reception desk when I checked in and out. The location in quite good, not bad. But the breakfast was triple overpriced as all other items in this hostel. I tried two times the breakfast, first and last...

We are Dominican by blood and every time we come to Dominica. We spend half the time with family and the remaining at fort young. The hotel grounds are lovely and you are right next to the busy town streets. The staff are the most friendly and the food is to die for. Only negative is the breakfast menu leaves...

The hotel itself is historic with very comfortable rooms. The view from the balcony is a beautiful ocean. The only compliant we have is the food service in the bar near the entrance, the drinks are great, the food for lunch took almost 90 minutes. By then we had enough, cancelled lunch aand went into town to eat. The staff...

We recently visited for our honeymoon and it was delightful! It's a very nice hotel (probably the nicest large hotel on the island) in Roseau, the capital. We spent 3 nights in the Northeast corner of the island at Calibishie Cove (which was absolutely magical and secluded and totally recommended!) and then 3 nights in the Southeast corner at Ft...

This place is incredible: comfortable, clean, fun, beautiful. Staff are helpful and friendly. There are also plenty of open seats to relax in. It is situated in close proximity to walk to other stores / restaurants. Incredible sunset views by the pool. Excellent restaurant and friendly wait staff.

Strongly recommend the Fort Young Hotel which is delightfully comfortable and pleasant, and by far the best hotel in Roseau (had to stay four nights in the Garraway waiting for an opening at Fort Young and it was truly torture trying to sleep in an 83 degree room). Since Fort Young is so popular, try to book sufficiently in advance...

By far the best hotel in Roseau. Right on the water and centrally located. Exceeded our expectations in almost every regard. Most importantly, its website is a true representation of what to expect when you stay there.

Grist old fort with a long history that isn't pushed enough. Food was fair to good. Wine list very limited. Anything outside the hotel is minimal and it would be nice if the hotel sponsored more activities. Dive shop on premises was excellent. Service was friendly in all areas though terribly slow.

The hotel is the best in Roseau, but that's not saying much. I had a relatively expensive ocean front room. The bed was easily the worst I've ever slept on. The mattress was very lumpy, and I could not find a comfortable position. Despite being of ample size, the room lacked a comfortable sitting and reading chair. The furniture and...
