“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Rosedon in early December, 2012, and really liked this hotel. The room was comfortable and clean, and the complimentary breakfast was delicious! The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the gardens were beautiful. We also loved the location, it was a short easy walk to restaurants, shopping, and the bus station.

My husband and I have just returned from a week in Bermuda, our first trip to the island, and I felt it was important to say how much we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is such a lovely property and everyone there made us feel so welcome ...a true “home from home” and a real Bermudian experience. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, you feel as if nothing would be too much trouble for them. While there is no restaurant, breakfast is included and we loved the whole breakfast approach – a simple phone call when we were ready and breakfast appeared, as if by magic, in about 2 minutes, to be enjoyed in the lovely setting of the verandah outside the room, overlooking the lush gardens and swimming pool. Our room was wonderful, spacious, clean and comfortable, afternoon tea (included) such a civilized way to pass an hour after a day of exploring, and altogether we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay – so much more welcoming than the large, impersonal properties that seem to abound on the island. We stayed in a Superior room, on the upper floor overlooking the garden. The hotel is only about 5-minute walk from downtown Hamilton where there is a huge array of restaurants, pubs, cafes etc. to choose from. There is a coffeemaker and fridge in the room, and a microwave in the main hotel lobby for the guests' use. Miles Market is about 3 minutes away so you can purchase food, drinks etc. to take back to your room if you wish. The bus and ferry terminals are also only 5 minutes away so you can easily reach any part of the island with ease. Buy a transportation pass then you can hop on and off all buses and ferries on your own schedule. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Bermuda.

Room Tip: Superior rooms on the upper level overlooking the garden are very spacious and quiet.

My first visit to the Rosedon was for a father-son get away about year and half ago and it was great!
Well, now it's was my wife turn! There was no question as to where we would stay. I had told my wife about the Rosedon and I think the actual experience for her surpassed my description!
This place is like an old potato chip commercial that promoted "bet you can't eat just one!" Well, I'm not a betting man but one visit here is just not enough.
The staff is fantastic. They are professional but better than that, they give you that family feel. As was the case with my first visit, I got a chance to meet the General Manager (Muriel Richardson) and she is the very best! It might seem like a small thing but on my first visit I raved about the butter cookies served at tea time and it seems she made a notation of it, When we open the door to our room, (Royal room) there was a small bag of butter cookies just for me. I felt like a KING!!
The Rosedon gives me that feeling I had as a child when holding a Teddy bear, all nice and warm.
We can't wait to come back!

This was our first trip to Bermuda & we definitely will stay at the Rosedon again. The grounds are beautiful. We stayed in the main house and the room was fine. One other guest stayed in the rear of the hotel and claimed the room was too small. No one else complained at all.

The breakfast changes every day. If it's not to your liking, they will gladly make minor changes for you. Pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs were all served up during our stay. Cereal & fruits are also available. They'll serve you in your room, on the porch, or by the pool. There is also a room off the lobby for dining. Not having to buy breakfast every morning was a huge plus.

Don't miss the Tuesday swizzle party and catch one of their afternoon teas at the hotel.

The hotel is close to the ferry terminal and a little further from the main bus terminal. You'll need one or the other if you tour the island. The Rosedon will explain all of your options on getting around. Purchasing a book of bus/ferry tickets is best.

Miles Market is very close to the hotel, but somewhat hidden. They're expensive, but good for little grocery purchases. Also walkable is The Market Place in downtown Hamilton. They have a GREAT selection of hot prepared food inside the store. A good option if you get tired of the over priced restaurants.

The guests at he hotel were older for the most part. We stayed there at the end of March, so most families probably had children in school. I'm sure the crowd is a little younger during summer vacation time.

Thank you for this great review.
Our rooms in the main house have become favorites for many of our guests. They exude old world charm.
Our location certainly is handy to access the nearby markets where one can purchase delicous cooked food. Of course we have the microwave in the pantry to heat it up,if one decides to exercise this option instead of going out to dinner.

We look forward to welcoming you back one day.

I'm a Bermudian who has been traveling home with my family for the past 25 years. We've stayed in at least 4 hotels on the island, but this stay was truly and experience in everything Bermudian! From the greeting we received upon arrival, the room, the room service each morning for breakfast anywhere on the property, the afternoon tea, the manager Muriel and her hospitality - OMG...words cannot describe how wonderful this weekend stay was! Did I forget the walk through the well-kept gardens? If you want to experience Bermuda and the "Bermudian touch" in hospitality, stay here! Really, this is how I remember Bermuda as a young person and I was so glad to learn that Bermudians are still providing the best service to our visitors...even me! My husband and children even enjoyed the tranquility... Thank you to all the Rosedon staff; hope to see you in 2014! The McRae's!

Be sure to read the review from "Georgia-USA" because it says exactly what I would say. We would definitely return to this hotel as the service was so accommodating (thank you to all the staff) and the grounds made us feel as though we were living in a botanical garden. The Tuesday evening "Rum Swizzle" opportunity to mingle with other guests was great and provided not only a lovely rum drink(s) but also delicious hot hors d'oevres that made dinner completely unnecessary. We enjoyed walking all over Hamilton and one of us really enjoyed the motor scooter we rented (the other of us was semi-terrified, but unjustly so as it turns out).
