Fort Young is a charming spot in the heart of Roseau! From the booking experience to our departure the employees were very accommodating.
After a bumpy crazy evening ride from Melvillehall Airport we were ready to unwind. We were pleasantly greeted at the front desk with warm white cloths to freshen our hands and offered a glass of wine. The bellhop had quite a hop in his step, but we were able to keep up with him during the 5 minute walk to our room.
Once you enter the lobby, it is stone-walled with dark accents. There is a long hallway leading to the rooms and dining areas. The front desk to the left of the entry way is highlighted with red and yellow accents.
The room was adjacent to the pool in the 100 block - the spaciousness of the room and the ocean-view made for an inviting stay. Daytime offers the best view of the ocean from the room.
This room was painted in and island Peach hue, very calming and decorous. Upon entering the closets are spacious and clean complete with full size ironing board and iron. Next to is is a large bathroom - superior in size. There is a huge bathtub and shower combination. On the balcony, there are 2 chairs and a table to enjoy the view.
Each conference room was equipped for audio/visual, podium and a/c. I loved the stone-walls and the old world feel of the property.
Upon arrival, I had forgotten my toothbrush and toothpaste, the desk agent came to the room for the cash and walked to town to pick-up the items for me. It took maybe 10 minutes and they were very honest and helpful.
I would not recommend walking into Roseau or the surrounding areas at night. There are flat screen TV's in the room and enough entertainment at the hotel. Friday nights are BBQ fetes island-wide. It's bonkers! The hotel offered the same at the property with a DJ. You can have a great meal under $40US.
