The exterior of the hotel nice, service is great, staff is very friendly and attentive. Just in need of some TLC and attention to detail in the rooms and common areas. The Smokers Oasis needs to be made more comfortable and inviting to those using it, the slat benches are a joke.

This hotel is situated in a great spot. Just a short stroll from the centre of town with its shops, bars, restaurants and anything else you would need. It overlooks at the rear the cruise ships that come and go everyday. Despite the busy location it isn't noisey here, as long as you don't mind Senor Frogs next door which...

This hotel is a fair reprersentation of an older Island type hoel, as such it is neither bad nor excellent; My major issue is the cost of food and rink at this location. I givwe general kudos to your staff who all were gracious and accomodating.

It is hard to believe that there is a hotel with a private beach in downtown Nassau. The view is fantastic, specially from the executive lounge. Talking about the executive lounge, the service there was impeccable, thanks to Shamarize, the assistant executive floor manager, who was extremely nice. Our room was not ready when we got there, even though it...

We usually like staying at Hilton properties and enjoyed a lot about the Hilton Hotel in Nassau, such as the large room with an ocean view. However, much of the hotel was without hot water for most of a day. Also, on checking out we were hit with a bunch of add-on charges (a room-cleaning fee--really?) that we hadn't expected....

It is easy to imagine the British Colonial Hilton in Nassau as a four-star hotel in years past. Unfortunately, this hotel is showing its age and is need of a remodel. Let me start with the positive. The service is great. I have no complaints about any of my interactions with the hotel's staff. As mentioned above, the hotel is...

This is the perfect hotel in the heart of Nassau. The pool and beach are great. We loved watching the cruise ships come in to the Nassau port. It was an easy walk to cruise ship dock and we enjoyed walking down to watch tourist come in, and we were able to easily pick up some tours ourselves. Also Dunkin...

So, I visited this property recently and did so with some trepidation given the reviews on TA. Here's my take. For the typical american tourist, this really isn't a spot you'd want to stay. Yes, it has a pool. Yes, it has a beach. But, realistically, this is more akin to an airport hilton in the states. The property has...

The hotel is in a great location and has a lot of history to it, the private beach is also pretty good. However, they have a problem with doors. The main door into the room area is bad. Our room door was broken and we had to call multiple times to get it fixed. The bathroom door also had problems,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on downtown Nassau’s only private beach and the site of Old Fort Nassau, the British Colonial Hilton in the Bahamas has undergone a multi-million renovation throughout all areas of the hotel, and offers a taste of the island’s rich history, along with some of the most modern amenities for both business and vacation travelers. What’s more the hotel is only 25 minutes from Nassau (Lynden Pindling International) Airport. The hotel is a true Bahamian experience with a marble-tiled lobby and is studded with palm trees under a skylight ceiling. There are 288 luxuriously appointed guest rooms with harbor or island views. All rooms are furnished with tasteful decor, complemented by separate shower and bathtub. One-bedroom suites offer a separate living area with sofa bed, and Executive accommodations are also available along with the Executive Lounge, where attentive hotel staff assures that every need and whim will be met during your stay. Recreational activities are convenient and varied for leisure and business travelers alike. A 300-ft long private white sand beach is furnished with lounge chairs and thatched sunshades overlooking the harbor offering a peaceful and secluded access for an ocean swim or a day in the sun. Use of kayaks and snorkeling gear on the beach is complimentary. Bordered on one side by a tropical garden, the hotel's freshwater pool offers harbor views and has an expansive sundeck with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Both the sundeck and beach offer views of cruise ships moored nearby, and of the western tip of Paradise Island, 300 yards offshore. Guests can snooze in hammocks on the lawn adjacent to the pool. The property can also organize trips out reef snorkeling island exploring, boating, golf, tennis and scuba diving. For dining options, Aqua is a fun, casual restaurant serving international favorites with a Caribbean flair, or guests can meet up for cocktails at the Bullion Bar. The new Bullion Bar is the 'place to be seen' for happy hour with great drink specials and tasty snacks. ... more   less
