On being shown to our oceanfront room (208) we were a little disappointed. It was fairly dark and there was a peculiar smell. The bed was large and comfortable and the balcony had the advantage that you could see past the cruise ships, which must obscure the view from the oceanfront rooms 00 to 07 on each floor From the...

We have a very comfortable ocean front room with a nice balcony, comfortable king sized bed, fridge, free wifi and a huge bathroom. Be aware that the tile floors are slippery if you come in from swimming. An easy chair would be a welcome addition but we bring in the balcony chairs. The street level lobby is the 5th floor...

I visited this hotel for the second time. Again he fulfilled my expectations. friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere, excellent service in the hotel bar. Views of the sea and mountains from the room is amazing. I recommend anyone who visits Roseau, spend at least one night in this friendly hotel.

I have visited Dominica on many occasions and stayed with family. I had often lunched at the Fort Young. This time we spent a couple of nights there. The staff were very professional and attentive, the view from our room balcony was spectacular. When the cruise ship came in we were literally beside it. The food was tasty and the...

Well appointed hotel, very close to the cruise port and downtown DOMINICA. Oceanfront rooms are great, the sound of the waves crashing was very relaxing; the other rooms , not so much. Great breakfast and friendly staff!

I have stayed at the Fort Young for years, but on my last stay, 27 January, it was the best ever. I don't know what management has done, but the new training has worked. The entire staff has a new, attitude, to do anything to make the stay the best possible. Well done.

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...
