Loughlands guest house near Elbow beach

Does anyone know if Loughlands guest House is still up and running? Think it is in Paget across the road from Elbow Beach. It was a big old white colonial building set in beautiful grounds. A lady called Mrs Pickles ran it. I stayed there 10 years ago, and would love to return. can't find any contact/email address.

The venerable old LOUGHLANDS GUEST HOUSE closed and was sold in 2003. Originally there was a 'plan' to build a new hotel/condo development but as with many such 'plans', it never came to fruition. The property was eventually redeveloped as private/government project as ninety-six(96) '..affordable housing condos...for first-time buyer..' resident-owner. Originally "..affordable.." was defined as $485-to $515,000.

Re-development of existing tourism properties as resident housing has always been part and parcel of Bermuda's '..plan..' to shift its domestic economic base from one that was tourism driven to one that was more balanced between international financial services and tourism...and address some of Bermuda's critical residential housing shortage.

Thank uou for taking the time to update me on the old Loughlands. Sad to hear it is no longer, but hopefully it has kept some of its charm. Will have to search out somewhere new to stay.

Near to the old Loughlands property are--

DAWKINS MANOR--

http://www.bermuda-charm.com/

PARAQUET GUEST APARTMENTS--

http://www.paraquetapartments.bm/

PARAQUET offers double rooms...as well as accommodations with kitchens. The accommodations at PARAQUET lack a great deal in the way of '..charm..' but every time that we've stopped in to check-out rooms here, the place has of antiseptically clean...and very well maintained...and the modestly priced restaurant on-premises is a plus.

A bit farther out along the South Road are--

SANDPIPER GUEST APARTMENTS--

http://www.sandpiperbda.com/

OCEAN WINDS VILLA & B&B--

CLAIRFONT APARTMENTS--

http://www.clairfontapartments.bm/

Of the above three, Clairfont is a real 'gem'..within easy strolling/walking distance of the south Road bus stop (150 yds) and the beach at WARWICK LONG BAY (400 yards).

In the event your memory recalls places like Sky Top Cottages and Astwood Cove Guest House along the South Road...both properties have also closed.
