“3 Days in Paradise”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

My husband and I just returned from 3 days in paradise. When we checked in we were greeted by Olga at the front desk with a warm Bermudian smile and she provided all the details we needed. She was friendly and knowledgeable and gave great advice on top things to see and do during our short stay. The Rosedon is amazing. The property is well kept and the grounds are gorgeous with lush tropical plants and flowers. They serve tea daily from 4-5:30pm (this was a true highlight for me). The room was well decorated and the bed was super comfortable!!! The breakfast each morning was fantastic and Veronica was bright and cheery each morning when we called to order breakfast. The service was very quick; our breakfast was delivered shortly after ordering. We felt like royalty.

This hotel is located just a short walk away from the downtown Hamilton area. There are wonderful shops and restaurants along Front Street. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the beach. We spent one day at Horseshoe Bay beach which is a must see for anyone travelling to Bermuda that likes the beach. It is breathtaking!!!

We would highly recommend the Rosedon. It is the perfect getaway to relax and unwind. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They provided top notch hospitality. The hotel is centrally located and easy to get around. Bermuda has a great bus and ferry service. It was safe, clean and reliable. Overall, Bermuda is absolutely beautiful and the people are very friendly. The island is a bit pricey, but definitely worth a quick getaway.

We truly enjoyed our short stay and can't wait to return again soon!!!

Stayed at the Rosedon the first week in June with 5 of my girlfriends. We were in Bermuda to honor a dear friend and mentor who passed away and who had taken many trips to Bermuda over many years. She always told us how beautiful it was and how wonderful the people were and she was definitely right.
The Rosedon was perfect for our gathering, even though we didn't seem to be the typical Rosedon guests. Most appeared to be couples or business people. Not sure they knew what to make of six women in their 60's and 70's traveling together and laughing a lot, but from the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome.
So much fun having breakfast together on our patios each morning and afternoon tea every day, meeting other guests. The rum swizzle party on Tuesday was great also. The location was perfect for us, since the ferry and bus terminals are a short walk away. We could easily walk into Hamilton to many great restaurants and shops. Guests should check with the hotel for vouchers to many restaurants for good deals. We took their free shuttle to Elbow Beach and enjoyed that also.
Cannot say enough about the staff. Their friendliness and helpfulness was beyond what we expected and made our trip that much more enjoyable. Richard, a member of the family who owns the Rosedon, is responsible for the gardens and they are beautiful. We felt like we had a tropical paradise right outside our doors. Loved the heated pool too.
We had a great trip honoring our friend and the Rosedon was the icing on the cake. We're already talking about a reunion....and now the husbands want to come.

I refer to the Rosedon as an "oasis" due to the fact that after a day of doing the "touristy" things, it was a wonderful way to end the day, walking up the driveway back to the comforts of the Rosedon Hotel. This is not the place to stay if you are looking for a lot of commotion and a multitude of activities on the premises. This IS the place to stay if you are looking for a beautiful relaxing place, with a very accommodating staff (no long concierge line here)! Breakfast is certainly a highlight, with the ability to have it delivered to your room, on your porch in front of your room, by the pool, or on the lovely patio of the hotel. There is no restaurant in the Rosedon, but the afternoon tea and small sandwiches are more than enough to hold you over if you are planning a later dinner that evening. Also, many good restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel. We will return to Bermuda some day, and this will be our first choice of places to stay. A couple's dream of relaxation!

Bermuda has two options as far as hotels in the 300+ price range - stay in Hamilton (the city) or on the beach. We decided to stay at the Rosedon based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor, the price and the look and feel of the hotel. We figured getting to the beach would be pretty easy, which it was. If you are the type of person who loves the beach and could spend all day lounging there, the Rosedon is not for you. However, if you are someone who might find yourself exploring every corner of the island, land and sea, the Rosedon is the perfect location.

As far as the hotel itself, we were upgraded to a deluxe room upon arrival which was right up the stairs from the foyer. The room had a large four-poster king-size bed, a couch, table and chairs, and a flat-screen TV. The house itself is beautiful and I doubt we could get a room that size for the price anywhere else on the island.

As the other reviewers mentioned, breakfast is included (and delicious). Tea time is at 4pm every day and it's a good meal and great way to meet other guests. I'm not sure if this is typical of the hotel, but nearly everyone staying there was over 50. This wasn't such a bad thing - the hotel was very quiet at night and the pool wasn't busy either - and the other guests could not have been more friendly.

The best reason to stay at The Rosedon is for the customer service, and at the heart of it is Olga at the front desk. Even though there were plenty of other guests, Olga made my wife and I feel like we were the only guests at the hotel. She offered to book events and dinners for us (we never had to ask). She called plenty of cars, arranged tee times and massages, and helped us with whatever we needed. But most importantly, when we were at the airport on the way home and realized our passports were left back at the hotel, Olga came to the rescue and sent her most trusted driver to the airport immediately. Though we did make our flight by a few minutes, a part of me wished we would miss it so we could continue to enjoy all that The Rosedon and Bermuda have to offer.

All in all, I would recommend The Rosedon to anyone going to visit Bermuda.

I stayed here in September 2013 with my best friend as our last girls holiday before weddings and babies.

I am a travel agent and have been fortunate enough to visit a lot of countries, but the service and hospitality at the Rosedon was incredible. Breakfast is served wherever you want around the property every day, and you are given a menu the day before. We always ate ours outside of our room overlooking the pool. And the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, a huge four poster bed.

The pool was lovely, so relaxing and peaceful. It was hardly used, so we felt like it was our own private pool.

Afternoon tea is served daily, we were there everyday for it, such yummy cakes and sandwiches.

The hotel is a short stroll into Hamilton where you'll find some great restaurants, and you can also take the ferry to other parts of the Island, so it really is just perfect.

We split our trip by doing 5 nights at the Rosedon and another 2 nights at a beach hotel so we really feel we got the best of both worlds.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Rosedon, if you're thinking of going 7 nights beach, make sure you stop here for a couple of nights too, you won't regret it!!!!

I have stayed at a number of the larger hotels in Bermuda. My wife and I wanted something more intimate and personal to experience the Bermuda culture on this trip. This hotel filled all of those expectations. I can not say enough about the friendly staff that made us feel at home from when we arrived to when we returned home. The amenities here were outstanding. Our breakfast was a wonderful way to start each day. We ate by the pool, on the veranda, and in our room. The meals were always prepared exactly the way we wanted. We wanted to be close to town so we could walk there for dinner and shopping. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to town. Even though the hotel is not located on a beach they provide transportation to and from the beach. Our room was in the main building. It was nice to wake in the morning and have the sun shine through our windows. We could even smell the coffee brewing in the morning. FYI excellent coffee! The room was spacious and gave the feeling of being in a Bermuda home as opposed to a hotel. At the Rosedon Hotel you get a real connection with the other guests. Everyone greets you with a “Good Morning” or Good Afternoon”. Tea time is a great place to meet other guests from around the world. All this said we had a great 10 days, loved every minute, and will definitely be back to the Rosedon Hotel again.
