“Heaven after nine days on the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2010

After a nine-day sailboat charter, my husband and I dragged ourselves to Fort Burt for a day of rest and recovery. It was early in the morning and the hotel was more than happy to securely stow our sailing gear and luggage until our room was ready.

We then walked around Road Town, had lunch, and returned a few hours later. The staff met us with smiles and questions about how they could help make our visit more pleasant. I remember the manager of the restaurant, poking his head out from the kitchen and welcoming us to Fort Burt.

I nearly fell over when I saw the room... king sized bed, amazing view of the water, charming balcony, small refrigerator with ice and bottled water... flush toilet (if you've been on a boat, you'd understand)... and much more. We were thrilled!

The rest of the day, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the boats in the bay, swimming in their crystal clear pool, enjoying the lush landscaping and interesting architecture of the hotel, and collapsing in an air conditioned room!

That evening, we had a splendid meal in the restaurant with the manager and several others visiting our table to ask about our trip and if we needed anything.

Fort Burt has a handful of room and doesn't have the amenities of a large resort. If you want to experience the "real" BVI, however, from the crazy traffic on the roads, hustle-bustle of boats in the bay, historical significance of the area, authentic food, and natural beauty, stay at the Fort Burt Hotel.

It's an OK place, but the owner has no manner or respect for the people who stay at the hotel. Some staff need to learn how to talk to people absolutely no people skills...

This is a locally owned hotel, located close to the ferry dock in Road Town. It has a pool, bar, and a fairly expensive restaurant that we did not try. The room was large and clean, but the repairs and fixtures have a bit of an improvised third-world look. Everything worked, however, especially the quiet air conditioning. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking the marina and the main waterfront street, as well as a refrigerator with free bottled water and, for some reason, a fax machine. Plenty of hot water and good amenities. Slow wireless was available in the lobby but I could not get it to work in the room. Rates are reasonable for this expensive market. We stayed here one night after our yacht charter and it was perfectly adequate.

I stayed in a STANDARD room for 6 nights while visiting my son who was doing a month long internship on the island. The winter rate for a standard room is $115 and resonable for a room in Road Town. It was clean and there was plenty of hot water. The rooms have cable TV with over 60 channels. A microwave or coffee maker would have been nice. Huge walk-in closet for storage. Everyone was very nice and accomodating. Suitable for scuba divers like myself or someone between adventures traveling on the cheap. Great location overlooking the Harbor and within walking distance of Road Town

You should visit Drake's Point Bar and Restaurant which has been under new management since Deceber 2009 and not affiliated directly with the Fort Burt Hotel. You can arrange to have your drinks and meals put on you hotel bill. Eddie, the manager, and his staff will take excellentcare of you. The food was excellent and what you would expect to pay at a fine restaurant on the islands. The tropical drinks were outstanding. The only Wi-Fi is in the bar-resaurant area.

My wife and I booked a one-night stay at Fort Burt before and after a Windjammer cruise (amazing). We experience very good service and excellent food for breakfast and dinner. Some rooms are perhaps "cozier" than others. The room our first night was near an a/c unit or some mechanical beast that was a bit noisy. Second time around, no problem and slept like a baby. This is no-frills, but for the price and cleanliness, as well as a decent restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I arrived with our room not ready. The girls at the front desk weren't very helpful or knowledgable about things we inquired about. That being said the pool suite we booked was great. The view is amazing. We went off season so the hotel was empty. We had dinner there one night and we were the only ones there. The food was good but way overpriced. The hotel is right on the main road and was loud and busy. The hotel is on a big hill and you walk up and up so it may not be good for people who can't climb. When we needed things the staff was often missing. It seemed deserted. The room was cleaned every day though. The water often went out and we had to call. Our room had a fridge and microwave so we went down to the market and bought our own snacks and alcohol to keep in the room. The pool was my favorite part about the place. Otherwise I would never stay there again. I would only recommend the pool suite. If you want to walk around...don't! Drivers are crazy and do not care about pedestrians. Rent a car.

Yes there are lot's of steps to your room from the reception lobby and the upkeep is not 4star, but the room was very clean and had a comfy bed . The VIEW was incredible, as Hotel is at the entrance to harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is associated with the local community colleges' culinary school, which is part of the New England Culinary Institute. The grilled romaine salad is unbelieveable! The eggs benedict were phenominal.
