What you'd expect. Good location to get your bearings and have easy access to Roseau. Special mention for, and thanks to, Stevia at reception, a charming lady, who was really helpful to us in arranging ta suitable transfer to our next location.

Even though it was a business trip and did not get to use the amenities. The staff was really amicable and nice. Excellent customer service. The rooms were really clean and neat. The hotel also smelled great including the rooms.

Rather a disappointing stay in a potentially atmospheric fort. The half a view coincides with a cruise ship in. Our room was a little tired - ceiling fan not working and a tired bathroom. Food in the restaurant was good, although same menu every night. The bed was reasonably comfortable. Service mixed but generally good. Information available to buy about...

FYH is located at Roseau harbour. The location is perfect if you do not want to rent a car and drive on your own but book a guided tour. We were warmly welcomed, check in was easy and fast. We could not open the in-room safe, the staff responded very quickly. The room was ok, a little bit outdated, it...

This hotel is clean, friendly, and provides wonderful tours. The do have lots of steps though so if you have a hard time with steps, beware. The elevators were not usable most of while we were there. Overall it was a good experience.

We picked Fort Young for its location near the city and it's charm. We stayed in a fort room which was clean with plenty of room. Be prepared to do lots of stairs on the property. The breakfast buffet was good but not outstanding. Lunch buffet was also good. Dinner off the menu was very good. The Concierge service on...

I just returned yesterday from Dominica where my group assisted in building homes following the hurricane/tropical storm this summer. The hotel was very clean and modern. I had a newer room this time and found it to be spacious with a very large bathroom and tub. The grounds were clean and the food was excellent. Breakfast stands out but the...

A very pleasant and accommodating classy hotel set in an old fort right on the waterfront and across the street from parliament in Roseau. The staff is very attentive and little details like power outlets in US and UK formats in the rooms show attention to detail. Just make sure you actually leave the swaddled comfort of the hotel to...

Well worth four stars plus – they know what they are doing and do it well. They clearly aim for ‘international’ standards particularly as this is clearly a business hotel as well as for vacationers. Overall, they meet such standards. Rooms are spacious and well equipped (including a reasonable sized desk for once). Food is very good – breakfast is...
