“No disappointment”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

This is a beautiful hotel located within an easy walk from downtown Hamilton, Bermuda. Looks like a southern plantation as you drive up its circular driveway. Behind the main building is the gorgeous warm pool surrounded by lush plants and most of the rooms. Our room was large and had every amenity. Breakfast is ordered each day and can be delivered to your room, your balcony, the pool, or the tea room in the main house. Staff is friendly and attentive. They went above and beyond to accommodate my gluten-free diet. Once a week is an evening party and each afternoon a tea time with snacks. Nice way to meet other guests. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: They all seemed comparable to me.

Thank you for this wonderful review. It is gratifying to know that you enjoyed our many services and amenities.
One of the unique features of Rosedon is our intimate setting for afternoon tea. Guests get to meet and mingle with one another. This happens at our Swizzle Party also. We are glad you got to experience both.
We look forward to the possibility of welcoming you back one day.

Warm Regards,

I've been coming to Bermuda at least twice a year for 15 years and the Rosedon is the place to stay ... And I've stayed everywhere else as well. Down home ... For a fairly large hotel, it's More of a bed and breakfast feel and the people who run it are amazingly friendly. Do t miss Twizzle night on Tuesdays!!!

22 years ago i stayed at the Hamilton Princess and when looking to book a suprise visit there for my now wife i found that the Rosedon kept coming up top and as i knew the location i decided to book this small boutique hotel.
Well so glad i did, we were greeted with a warm Bermudan smile and as we arrived early our room wasnt quite ready but we only had to wait 15 mins and so took a look around.A small reception behind a door so privacy was always there and opposite were two loung areas with fireplaces and sofas.In the back loung is a door leading to a well stocked "honour bar" with spirits,wine,beer,soft drinks and snacks at prices cheaper than the bars and restauants in town.
Afternoon tea was served in this area at 4pm everyday except on Tuesday when there is a rum swizzle party giving you chance to mingle with fellow guests or get to know the wonderful staff!
Our standard room overlooked the pool and gardens and was very spacious with large comfortable bed,a table and chairs and ample sized bath/shower room.
At night a turndown service is offered and the following day breakfast menu is delivered.In the morning just call room service and state what you wish for breakfast and where you want to dine and it is delivered usually within ten minutes fresh and hot!
The grounds and pool area are immaculate and everyday we used the pool area there was only about half a dozen or so people there so plenty of sun loungers to go round.
If you have read this far then thankyou and hope you consider this property with wonderful staff,rooms and only 10 mins walk from Hamiltons shops and restaurants and nightlife, Also just to point out it is on a main road directly opposite the Princess and perfectly safe area.

Room Tip: room 53 is around the corner from reception and only 4 steps to go up and so ideal for somebody who...

We had planned to end our States side tour with a trip from Atlanta to Bermuda, as my wife had never seen the island. I had stayed before at the Hamilton Princess (Fairmont), which is quite large,but on this occasion we preferred to find somewhere quieter, but still maintaining the 5* quality.
The Rosedon Hotel fitted the bill superbly.
It is approximately 36 rooms based around the old colonial styled house, with a small pool garden area, and more rooms surrounding the garden. The quality of furnishings are befitting the colonial style. Whilst limited in offering dining facilities, it is so close to the town centre you can stroll in for dinner to all the Hamilton restaurants with ease.
Breakfast is superbly presented either to your room (on your balcony), by the pool, or on the front verandah. You can get sandwiches / salads/ burgers, by the pool throughout the day.
The friendliness of the staff is exceptional, they will go that extra mile to serve you. Complimentary afternoon tea is served daily at 4:00.
For us it was a superb stay in a beautiful location.
We hired a scooter, and from Hamilton we could then visit all the wonderful beaches that Bermuda offers.
If you are looking for quality with with a peaceful stay, this is for you. If you have young children and need a place that offers facilities to keep them amused, then the Rosedon is not really for you, but for couples its superb.

Room Tip: If you go for a garden room, request 1st floor rather than ground, as on the ground you could find y...

The Rosedon will forever hold a very special place in my heart. Last month we were married on their porch and I can not express enough gratitude and love for the staff of this property.

We made the decision to elope to Bermuda after a long engagement that included a fierce hatred of wedding planning. We wanted something quaint, romantic and personal and we found all this and more at the Rosedon.

The staff is what makes this place feel like home the minute you arrive. The location of the hotel is wonderful, it is close to all Hamilton has to offer and a short (moped!) ride to any of Bermuda's amazing beaches.

The day of our wedding we woke up and walked to coffee and massages, lounged around the pool finishing up our vows and felt loved by the excitement of those around us (all strangers!). It was a wonderful day. We were married during the early evening with the hotel staff and our new friends from the property watching, it was emotional and lovely and perfect in every way. We all toasted, threw some confetti and off we went for pictures with our photographers (Two & Quarter who are WONDERFUL as well!) (Our minister was Rev. Judith Gardner and I have to add that she is a sweet, kind, wonderful woman who made our wedding more amazing than I ever could have imagined!)

We will always look back on our wedding weekend in Bermuda fondly and can't wait to return in the coming years to visit our friends at The Rosedon!

What a joy it was for us to be a part of your special wedding day.
I am always amazed at how peaceful and calm our weddings couples can be hours before the wedding, simply because they have entrusted the planning to us.
It truly was a wonderful, intimate, happy occasion!

We came here upon a recommendation. This place is quaint and beautiful. I am in the service business. They go above and beyond. They are intimate and take the time to know you. The food is great. It makes you feel like your in a family's members home. It's like a blast from the past with a modern twist. I plan on coming back.

This was our first trip to Bermuda and we truly lucked out with this hotel. It is a beautiful property with staff that is incredibly friendly and helpful. It is easy to feel very much at home at the Rosedon.

If you are looking for a standard corporate hotel this is not the place for you. It has it's own unique charm that includes daily tea and a secluded feel.

It is located within walking distance to everything in Hamilton. We very much enjoyed this hotel and it would be our only choice if we were to return to Bermuda.
