“A good choice in Roseau”
Reviewed 13 October 2008

I have been in Roseau 2 times for short business visits and found Sutton Place a good choice. The standards in Dominica are not very high but they try to be the exception. The suites are much more comfortable than the standard rooms and not that much more.

A basic continental breakfast is included in the price but you can upgrade it by ordering eggs, cheese at a small fee.

It is clean and the staff is friendly. When I come back in Roseau I will stay there again.

When you come to Dominica for a nature stay, you may want to spend some time in the ECO lodges as well.

A comfortable hotel right in the middle of Roseau with friendly staff and good facilities by Dominican standards. Apparently it has been in the same family for many years. It was particularly nice to have free internet access in a quiet little alcove on the first floor. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The ensuite wasn't fully separated off (ie the walls were a partition that didn't quite reach to the ceiling) but that didn't matter. A basic continental breakfast is included in the price, but you could pay for more if you wanted to - we didn't. Unfortunately the cellar bar was closed for refurbishment (though it probably meant we got a quieter night!)

If you are looking for a small, comfortable and unique hotel with friendly and personal service located right in the heart of Roseau, the Sutton Place Hotel is probably for you.

The hotel is very nicely furnished and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. A computer is available to guests.
Though the hotel is quiet, its location allows you to really experience the day-to-day life of Dominica.

I have fond memories of my stay and would definately go back to the Sutton place.

  • Liked — The hotel had real character.

Reviewed 22 January 2006

My fiance and I stayed here for one week. Both the hotel and the room were very nice. It was a rich, traditional decor. The king bed was two singles, pushed together.

The service was inconsistent and you weren't sure what to expect each day for towels or breakfast. Below-average service seemed to be the theme for the whole island, so I would call the service average for the area. The included breakfast was less than you would expect at a continental, so expect to purchase a breakfast here or somewhere else. When we tried to order breakfast here, they weren't able to make either of our selections, french toast and banana pancakes. We found this type of thing common at other restaurants on the island, too.

The hotel was protected by a security guard, which is comforting when you are surrounded by third-world country. There were a few regular bums that would pester you in Roseau, so it was nice to have the guard there at the hotel if they made you uncomfortable.

There are only a few hotels that I would consider if I returned and this is one of them.

Unfortunately We were in Dominca on business and was only there for 3 days, June 1st to the 3rd 2004. Our client booked us into the Sutton Place. The Staff was excellent as was the service... The room was well furnished and was spotless. What amazed me was the friendliness of the staff and management... After living in the Caribbean for over 10 years this is generally not the case however in Dominica it most definitely was. The people that ran the restaurant couldn't have been more dedicated to our attention. When I informed the rest. manager that I was a very early riser (3am) and was interested in getting a coffee maker for my room, she told me not to worry about that and each morning I would come down to the restaurant and just turn on the machine. Apparently she would prepare a pot of coffee late at night and all I had to do was turn it on in the morning. The food was plentiful and prepared to high standards. The prices are incedibly low especially for the Caribbean. The Sutton Place is one of the finest places I've stayed in and I've been in nearly 300 hotels in the recent past. If you are planning a vacation to this beautiful Island you would do yourself well to stay at The Sutton Place. Iff you haven't considered Dominica as a vacation destination you certainly should.
