“OK for Holiday, terrible for business”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

First let me start by saying, Valley Cottage would be ideal for any tourist looking for inexpensive lodging and wanting to explore what Bermuda has to offer. But any tourist wanting to visit Bermuda, is gonna want to stay close to the water if not view the water.
The grounds are very well kept but apartments are very out-dated. The apartment were I stayed had some issues upon check-in.
No light bulbs in any of the fixtures
The over doesn't work
The shower nozzle removed itself from the wall upon using the shower
Internet is available, but it's at dial-up speed
The property owner will let himself in to your apartment at his own free will w/o notice(has 3 times in 4 days)

Good things:
There's a grocery store close by with plenty of inventory
There's a bus stop and ferry stop within walking distance

The thing about Bermuda is, you're never more than half a mile from a beach. You don't need to see it from your hotel room -- or at least, you don't if you're like me and on a budget. Valley Cottages is just about the most convenient place I've ever found in Bermuda: bike rental RIGHT across the street, and a well-stocked grocery store a few steps away. Centrally located in Paget, you're only a few minutes away from Hamilton and the ferries to everywhere else if the bikes intimidate you. It's clean, tidy, charming, has kitchenettes so you don't have to blow the budget on restaurant meals every day, and it was a pleasant surprise to have free wi-fi on my most recent visit. The owner, Richard Simons, is very accommodating and the atmosphere casual and relaxed. No, it's not the Hamilton Princess. It's a far more authentic Bermuda experience. Can't recommend highly enough, and will be back. Soon.

The cottages were a wonderful value. No beach, no pool, but excellent location with an incredible little but very well stocked grocery store just feet away. Short walk to Hamilton Ferry and right on bus line. Quiet, clean and modest. Owner most attentive. Cleaning staff (Jasmine) wonderful and accomodating with odd schedules. We have wonderful memories of lazy days. The3 bargain on the Island. Intend to stay there many more times.

Our Bermuda vacation May 29 to June 3, 2010 was delightful due especially to the help of the owner, Richard Simons, and his very efficient maid, Jasmine.

We took all the local tours and in the evening Richard took us to various places to enjoy the music, sunsets and the beaches. We particularly enjoyed the 'Harbour Nights' held in Hamilton which was colourful and vibrant.

After 10 years of not visiting Bermuda we were able to book our same 2-bedroom cottage and enjoy the improvements done to it. The grounds are very well maintained with all the different flowers and greenery.

We found the location to be extremely good for the cycles, food market, ferry and buses to the city or the beaches. We did find, however, that traffic has increased and that more sidewalks are needed especially along Harbour Road when going to the ferry.

We are hoping to return in the not too distant future and especially look forward to staying at Valley Cottages.

Bermuda is a very beautiful country with nice pink sandbeaches (pink from the coral/reef). I travelled with family includes a 23 mth baby. The owner Mr Simon, kept mentioning that "Kids are kids". I don't really feel my cute 23 mth was welcome. And he always checked around to make sure things were in his way. Yet he was nice to drive us around on the landmark in Bermuda on our 1st nite. Also, there were many ants in the cottage. Bewared after eating or cooking. U will find ants partying in your sink if you left unwashed dishes/food not handle properly fast. We had a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with kitchen suite. There is no internet service. The room is a little old. Certain door will open automatically even though it was closed. The location is great! Close to foodmart, bustop which can bring you to ferry terminal. The food and living expenses are very expensive in Bermuda. A loaf of bread costs US6 compared to CA1.20 in Canada. Using a stroller in Bermuda is very dangerous!! There is not enough sidewalk for the pedestrians and the streets are very narrow. Especially at turning corner, I really felt uneasy and scared pushing a stroller with my baby inside. I will recomend to join the all inclusive cruise and visit the Bermuda island for 1-2 days.
