This is a wonderful little hotel with a unique character and family-charm. The rooms are basic but well appointed and clean. The same can be said about the bathrooms. The most important aspect is the staff and the proprietor, Ms. Pam, who are simply wonderful, generous, friendly and want their guests to enjoy their visit from the sweltering heat outside....

Mrs Pam and her team are very flexible. We had a very detailed mail conversation about the rooms. We could check in late and check out later than normal. Without paying extra. The rooms are awesome! The colors are soooo beautiful. In a nutshell Forty Winks Inn s all about cuteness. When think about our stay there I see happiness...

My wife and I were in Trinidad for 2 nights recently. I wanted somewhere affordable to stay that was within walking distance of restaurants. Forty Winks is a very small hotel located a few blocks from "The Avenue", where one can find an abundance of good local food. The room at Forty Winks was pretty small. The air conditioning was...

I stayed three nights at the Forty Winks Inn. The room was small, but very clean, and the shower had good pressure and hot water. Bring your own shampoo! Staff was friendly, and the breakfast was good. Big disadvantage is the parking situation, if you have a car. You park on the street (there was always a space in a...

We are in an old, architecturally interesting part of the city where blocks are long and narrow and cars were not the order of the day, so garages are in short supply. Unfortunately I would have to sell Forty Winks to buy a piece of land in the area for parking :-) No shampoo, but there was soap, towels, a...

Two nights stay over in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Forty Winks Inn was ideal for us. Centrally located so close to sights, museum, botanical gardens, restaurants, etc. Very pleasant and helpful staff.

We wanted to stay somewhere that wasn't a big anonymous chain hotel but that wasn't grotty. I tried The Gingerbread House but that was full, this was my second choice, but in fact, we couldn't have been happier with Forty Winks. It's really charming. The people there could not be more cheerful, friendly, helpful. Owner Pam gave us precise instructions...
