“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

The Greenbank offers lovely studio apartments on the bay. The views are fantastic and the facility is really kept up very well. Melanie took over running Greenbank during our stay and we look forward to seeing her again! A great hostess. Greenbank offers a very peaceful Bermuda experience.

Of course, it's worth noting that the Greenbank offers a different kind of hotel experience. You're not downtown, and restaurants are not exactly close by, but taxis and buses are fairly cheap on the island (especially compared to the pricing of everything else!) and the Salt Kettle ferry is just one block away. We found that the Greenbank lends itself well to grocery shopping and then cooking in the apartment, where cookware is provided. If you'd rather have a late dinner in Hamilton after the ferry stops servicing Salt Kettle, a taxi back is only about $20 (again, cheap in Bermuda!).

Room Tip: Rooms facing the bay are quite nice, but rooms facing the garden are great, too. Sun hits the garden...

We just returned from Bermuda and enjoyed our stay at Greenbanks very much. We have stayed here before and return every year. This year the property management baton has been passed to younger members of the family, Melanie and Matt. We were delighted with our stay and their friendly and helpful hospitality, I know they will continue the great Greenbank tradition and we are already looking forward to seeing them next year.

This was our first trip to Bermuda. Nina and I stayed at Greenbank for 5 nights and we are so glad that we did. Folks make reservations well in advance yet Cindy managed to accommodate our last minute plans - in the end we only had to change cottages once. Taking the ferry into Hamilton (with visitors and local residents) and onward by bus or ferry to other spots including beaches, St. George's and Dockyards, was so pleasant. Coming back with a few groceries and take-away food in time to watch the sunset was a real treat for us, and when we stayed in Hamilton after the last ferry it was easy to catch Bus #8 and walk a few blocks to Salt Kettle. Arrangements were made for us to share a taxi to the airport on our departure day. We cannot imagine staying anywhere else on our next visit to Bermuda..

Room Tip: Most cottages have water views and outdoor eating spots.

We just returned from a 5-day vacation and covered all of Bermuda. We couldn't imagine staying in any other place for it's location. It is a 1-minute walk to a ferry that takes you across to Hamilton. This place is in a lovely residential location, don't assume it's closeness to a ferry stop puts it in a heavy traffic location. The grounds are beautiful, and the owners are most helpful, friendly and accommodating.
Cindy made calls for us when we did need a taxi and there is free wi-fi. We had a harbor view and a kitchen, and most units have outside sitting areas. When you contact the owner, just explain what you are looking for because the units do vary. The trip by ferry to Hamilton was a wonderful aspect of our stay especially because the weather was perfect (Apr. 15-20). A very welcoming common room where people can gather in the evenings to share their Bermuda experience that they had during the day. We enjoyed this aspect very much. We will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: We personally liked having a water view.

My husband and I stayed here for one week for our honeymoon, and we will never forget our stay. Paget is a great area of the island to stay on. The owners are absolutely wonderful. We came in on a Sunday (couldn't get plane tickets for other days), and they made sure our room was ready and keys were available. We were very appreciative of that. We stayed in one of the rooms closest to the water, and I loved the space. We had a queen-sized bed with a t.v. The kitchen was small but had a mini-fridge, microwave, and smallish stove. We were able to cook small meals, like pasta, a couple nights and eat outside to watch the sunset. You can jump right into the ocean here, too. The ferry stop is a 2-minute walk. It's not on the beach, but it's an amazing area to stay at. I highly recommend staying here, and we definitely plan on returning.

In the middle of everything. Even though we rent the bikes, we still love being able to jump on the ferry, which picks you up right there and head into Hamilton or beyond. The location of Greenbank works so well for our family and friends, which usually totals at least 10 of us. We love having the water, kitchen and most of all the owners. It is our favorite hangout just to de-compress.

Room Tip: Every guest cottage is charming

Have just come back from 10 days at Greenbank and even though our stay was out of season, we had a fantastic time. Our room was lovely with a small but adequate kitchen and a bathroom. The whole setting is beautiful, wake up and look out onto the sea; beautiful well kept grounds with tables and chairs on our patio and sun loungers in the gardens and on the dock. It was too cold to swim so we didn't make use of those facilities. As mentioned by other people, I must add also that the people who ran the guesthouses definitely contributed to our wonderful stay. Cindy couldn't have been more lovely and helpful in every way she could. What a nice lady. And the 3 cleaning ladies- Loma, Blanche and Margaret were the loveliest ladies, always smiling and time to chat. They really brightened our days. The other people staying at the guesthouses at the same time as us were also very lovely and friendly and I think that is the whole appeal of the place. It is a beautiful location…ideal for the short ferry ride into Hamilton with a lovely warm friendly atmosphere. We definitely want to go back. Great value for money also. Would definitely recommend.
