Head Sout Lodge is a small guesthouse with good location just under the Signal hill and 5 min walk to 3 anchor bay. Rooms are quiet with good beds. However there is big variation in rooms. Some are nicer than others. Service is always most hospital, like wisiting friends. Breakfast is good including juice blender anf cappucino 😀

We spent nine nights here beginning on New Year's Eve. We had reserved an ocean view room, but we were given a room at the back of the hotel with a mountain view. However the hotel was able to move us after the first couple of nights. The room was good sized and very comfortable, with a wall of glass...

The guesthouse is very conveniently located and in walking distance to most places - shops and restaurants, the beachfront and the Waterfront. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and the staff are very helpful.

From when I booked until I left I found the staff friendly and helpful. The building is quaint and well kept and I loved the outdoor area (bar, pool, lounger etc) to entertain my friends when they visited. The concept of an honesty bar that seemed to work was fantastic. I always prefer smaller hotels to bigger ones and Head...

Location by the waterfront, by not on the waterfront. Parking is potentially a bit limited, you might have to park round the back, but its worth it. Room was bright clean and comfy, hotel is open light and airy, might be worth trying to get on of the rooms on the upper floor, might be a view? Breakfast was fine,...

Friendly staff and great location however the place is let down by boring rooms with exposed piping (sinks are in the rooms), we also had dirty pillows for 3 of the 4 nights and no window in one room which we switched. Breakfasts are very boring, the pastries don't seem fresh at all which is a shame when one of...

The rates according to the different rooms are not accurate in comparison to Rooms in the front facing the swimming pool. The back room should not be advertised as a Semi Luxury room, same as the front rooms facing the Pool, not accurate to charge the same!

Excellent service and very helpful staff. They were part of this awesome mobile phone program where the hotel provides a ,mobile phone with data that you're free to use throughout your stay. Amazing! At first, we weren't sure about staying in Greenpoint, but it turns out that it's very close to everything. The room was clean, and breakfast at the...

As a company we always stay at Head South when on business in CT. The rooms are always clean and its close to the areas we call on. Its also close to the Sea Pont promenade and numerous restaurants. The staff are always pleasant and assist when requested.
