40 winks is a wonderful place. 5 Comfortable rooms with private baths. A great cooked to order breakfast each morning. Pam, Rae-Anne, Karen, and Fred are warm and helpful folks who will make your stay most memorable. You'll enjoy meeting other guests in this small inn too. Just a short 3 block walk to the Savannah. Mini-marts and a mix...

My brother and I were in Trinidad for a wedding and wanted to stay in a clean "local" place. Forty Winks fit the bill perfectly. The owner, Pam, is on property much of the time and is friendly and outgoing. Raane, (not sure about the spelling there) was also fun and always had a smile on her face. Even the...

Tucked away in a side-street, not a huge B&B, but all the more friendly. I only spent one night here, but the main thing surely is to get a good night's sleep, and that I got. The room is nice and clean, air-con working well, bathroom also fine. The owners are very nice and cheerful people to chat with, laugh...

I had a wonderful stay at Forty Winks Inn. The staff was courteous, helpful, and friendly. They can help you decide on excursions, book a taxi, or simply advise on where to go for a nice walk.
