“What an exceptional experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

This was our second stay at Rosedon and we stayed 6 nights in a luxury room. Carline checked us in and immediately, had us shown to our room. Upon arrival, we found a bottle of champagne with a note, welcoming us back! We immediately headed to the pool to relax and found other couples/families who had just arrived, doing the same thing. We went to the "Swizzle" Party that evening (Tuesday) and enjoyed not only the tasty libation, but the hors d'oeurves, both hot and cold were quite filling, so need to worry about dinner!
Made to order breakfasts are wonderful.....delivery is to your room (balcony) or front porch within 5-10 minutes. Always delivered with a smile by Chris or Cameron!
Olga assisted us with making reservations for dinner and to Elbow Beach via the transportation and beach services.
We used the honor bar daily for both bottle water and soda, which is great!
Our room attendants were very accommodating each morning and evening, asking when we were ready to vacate for either morning or evening activities.
Renovations have been done and are taking place to the rooms and are keeping with the simplicity of Rosedon.
The grounds are amazing and very well kept.......just beautiful.
Rosedon is very intimate and allows you to get to know others who are staying there. We met many other people who have stayed at Rosedon and have returned numerous times. For some, this was their first visit, and they vowed to return.
The only thing which is minor, Rosedon is working on upgrading their wi-fi service, so it can be spotty at times. Had to keep entering the password to gain access to the free service.
Will we return to Rosedon......in one word, ABSOLUTELY!!!

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

We chose this boutique hotel for it's great location, lovely venue and anticipated great service. We were not disappointed. The hotel could not have been more lovely. We requested an upgrade at check in and were granted the request with pleasure. We had a lovely gentleman take our bags through the wonderful gardens to our room. The room was very large with a beautiful patio overlooking the pool. The room was extremely well appointed with a four poster king bed, flat screen and lovely bathroom. Made to order breakfast and afternoon tea were such a nice touch. The self service pantry and bar were also a huge plus. The location of the hotel is wonderful and within very close walking distance of all of the restaurants and the ferry terminal as well as scooter rentals. The transportation to the beach was very convenient and worked out perfectly. I have a hard time finding anything negative to say about The Rosedon. The only area of improvement would be the Wi-fi availability which was spotty. Unfortunately, we had to leave The Rosedon early due to bad weather in Bermuda and the staff could not have been more gracious or understanding. All the way around, just at the people of Bermuda, The Rosedon is just absolutely lovely!

How does one begin? This is the most amazing hotel! From Olga at the front desk, to Chris (who does a lil bit of everything well) to Kaye turning down our bed (and leaving wonderful chocolates) - our first trip to Bermuda started out at this amazing hotel! Not knowing what to expect, as soon as we arrived at the Rosedon, we felt welcome and important. Everyone remembered our names and always wanted to help us and share the Bermuda love.

If you are looking for a relaxing, simple, English bed and breakfast - the Rosedon is the place for you! The home-cooked breakfasts each morning brought to your room, the pool, the front porch or anywhere else on the property is unmatched anywhere I have ever stayed. From the China dishes, to the daily newspaper, to the fresh flowers, it was perfect! They even brought my husband a birthday cake (with candles and all) to our room.

The afternoon teas complete with china tea cups and saucers, small sandwiches and yummy desserts, to the Tuesday Rum Swizzle party and homemade sandwiches at the pool, were available at your pleasure. They even prepared a picnic lunch for us to take to the beach - which they provide a free shuttle service each day at 11 - amazing!!!!

I truly could go on an on about this hotel. You are a few blocks from Hamilton and all the shopping and English pubs. You are minutes from the beach and across the street from the Harbor.

If you are looking for a full-service resort the Rosedon is not it, however if you want a relaxing, special, intimate location - Rosedon is the place for you! You will not be disappointed. My husband and I went to a large resort for the last part of our trip and wished we had stayed at the Rosedon.

Thank you Olga, Chris, Kaye and the rest of the staff - you made our first trip to Bermuda a truly memorable one! We will be back

Room Tip: The second floor overlooking the pool is wonderful - beautiful 4-post bed with comfortable bedding

Stayed for a week with my wife on a part business trip / part holiday. Breakfast delivered each day to your room and can sit outside, all at no extra cost. Afternoon tea provided and very helpful staff. Booked meals at local restaurants at discount for us. Rooms comfortable, well equipped (coffee, iron etc). Good location on the edge of Hamilton and close to the ferries.

Room Tip: Six grades of room, most look out onto the pool. Second floor have balcony

Our five nights at the Rosedon Hotel were outstanding. Wonderful breakfasts served just about anywhere you wish. Ours was just outside our room on the balcony over looking the pool and well cared gardens. They take pride in delivering the breakfast within 5 minutes on average. Afternoon tea with tasty pre-dinner sandwiches and sweets was a pleasant treat. The Tuesday Rum Swizzle party with local musical accompaniment gives you a chance to soak in the hospitality of the Rosedon Hotel Staff. The main house gives you the feeling you are staying in a B&B with a library, reading room and quiet areas to work or read the local papers. We found the location excellent. A short walk to some excellent restaurants and other large scale hotels. Harbor nights celebration during the summer should not be missed. Gives you a chance to experience the casual, friendly "street Fair" atmosphere of Hamilton. The hotel rooms are well kept, good AC and quiet. There were a lot of "regulars" who use the Rosedon as a home away from home when travelling on business. We can not complement the staff for their attentiveness and attention to detail.
Taxis are a little more expensive in Bermuda if "telephoned for". Staying at the Rosedon was a good deal because we could catch a taxi anytime at the entrance of the hotel. The ferry is a five minute walk from the hotel. The "passes" work great because you can travel at your leisure. Just make sure you check the schedule for return travel.

Room Tip: I would suggest any rooms overlooking the pool and gardens.

We were scheduled to stay at another hotel and when we got there it was a nightmare! We checked in and checked out within 30 minutes. I called the Rosedon Hotel for availability and when they heard our story they got us in that day, Jennifer at the front desk was sympathetic and very courteous. The room was amazing! The bedroom had 2 beautiful queen beds and a pull out couch (so that my 2 children had their own beds to sleep in). The room had a huge flat screen tv, wifi, a nicely remodeled bathroom, (with jacuzzi tub) and a private patio. The reservation also included an awesome breakfast and high tea every afternoon. The hotel is beautiful and the front veranda was amazing to sit on. Even though there were other guests staying there, we rarely saw or heard them. We had the pool to ourselves every time we used it. Another nice feature was that you could eat your meals anywhere on the property that you wanted, you could make a call and have your meal served on the front porch, your room, by the pool, anywhere. The gardens are beautiful and the pool is very nice (and heated). The staff is very friendly and attentive. They genuinely care about the guests and their experience at The Rosedon. We felt pampered and relaxed at The Rosedon Hotel. It's located minutes from downtown Hamilton, scooter rental, the ferry and beaches. My husband, our kids and I all agree, this is where we'll stay next time we come to Bermuda.

We stayed 5 nights at the Rosedon Hotel in Hamilton Bermuda. Very nice old property but updated with new air conditioning, baths, furniture and beds. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The included breakfasts and afternoon teas are wonderful. We enjoyed quiet time by the pool amongst lovely gardens. Close to town, shopping and restaurants. I would come back without hesitation.
