“Very Welcoming Hotel”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while visiting the Abacos. They are doing some extensive remodeling during the slow season, so they offered us a room away from the remodeling and it was wonderful. We never heard any noise from the renovations, and the staff made sure we were comfortable with the accommodations. Candice was so helpful and pleasant. She suggested great restaurants and helped locate areas of interest. The hotel is very clean, and it is among the shops and restaurants in Hope Town. We can't wait to go back to see the updated renovations. Thanks to Candice & Paul for a great time.

This review focuses on the back of the hotel facing the ocean, where they have an outdoor restaurant ("The Reef") looking out over the water, a salt-water pool and nearby outdoor bar. The venue was so nice that we came and ate here and used the pool and beach several times during our stay. The food was good--I had a blackened mahi sandwich. At your table under a pergola you can sit either facing the ocean or facing the pool. The nearby bar serves bottled beer and mixed tropical rum drinks. The staff are friendly and helpful. One of them even brought us some mint from another island so we could make mojitos at our rental house. I have eaten in the hotel in past trips and the food was good there too. Some of our party went up to the indoor hotel bar called "Ray's Place" for karaoke and drinks a couple of nights. The hotel itself is right before you get into Hopetown, and you must go up several flights of outdoor stairs before you get to it, so it isn't wheelchair-friendly. It's a lovely, quaint and elegant place that we enjoyed visiting.

The Beach Cabana was a tiny bit smaller then expected, but the view made up for it 100 times over. Everything was great from them moment we arrived. The staff at the Beach bar were hilarious and kept us entertained night after night. Will be back as soon as I can, can not think of a more relaxing place to take a holiday.

My (now) husband and I saw Hope Town on the TV show "Scrubs" a few years back when they took their vacation to Hope Town and the Janitor and Lady got married. After seeing that episode, and watching the behind the scenes on the DVD, we decided that we wanted to get married on Hope Town because it looked so beautiful. After doing some research, we found out that we could actually manage it and we would also get to share the experience with our closest family.

There were 7 of us total, and we all say the same thing about Hope Town; it was paradise. We stayed at the Hope Town Harbour Lodge, and our family stayed in the hotel rooms, while my husband and I stayed in the Guava cottage. The rooms had air conditioning which was nice. They, however, did not have a phone, or TV, but in all honesty, not a single one of us missed not having those amenities. We were so busy exploring the island, tanning on the beach, or having an excellent dinner, that there wasn't a moment to miss those items. If we wanted to find out what the rest of our family was up to, we'd just walk around until we found them. It was a breath of fresh air.

The staff, and everyone else on the island, were so friendly and helpful, you couldn't help but smile the entire time. The hotel helped make sure our wedding and small reception go smoothly and they answered all of our questions. The food at the lodge, along with everywhere else on the island, was amazing. I have never enjoyed food so much in my life until then.

It honestly felt like a dream. We went the beginning of May, and you would walk out onto a beach and maybe see another person. It felt like you were on your own private island. I am so pleased that I got to share that experience with our family, and that we chose to get married at Hope Town Lodge.

The town is so beautiful as well, because everything is painted bright colors, well kept, and the flowers that grow there are huge and luscious. The rest of the island does not disappoint as well. We rented golf carts and traveled across the island many times and it was all just amazing.

We plan on going back, (hopefully soon!) and we will for sure stay at Hope Town Lodge again. They helped make our wedding, and vacation, a trip that we will never forget.

Had dinner one evening. restaurant is nicely appointed, comfortable, air-conditioned.
Table service was competent, efficient and friendly.

the meal I had was disappointing wherein the main ingredient, lobster was in short supply.
wine choices were good. meal was expensive.

Beach bar is nice place to have lunch or drink overlooking beach. nice beach, snorkeling in front.

Hotel facility appears well maintained but I did not stay here. If you pick your meals carefully I believe you will enjoy a dinner here.

Room Tip: did not stay in rooms.

Just came back from heaven. Our little cabana on the beach was pristine and everything we could have hoped for. No television, no clock, no phone, no problem! The view was what postcards are made of and waking up and laying in the hammock was perfection. The only tough decision was deciding what delicious cocktail to try, Gary the bartender never disappoints. Pricey? Yes, but well worth it. Whether visiting with the kids or just an adult getaway, there is no better place to stay than here. Looking forward to visiting real soon!

Room Tip: Flying Fish is the name of the room we had.

The sleepy little island of Hopetown is perfect for getting away and doing nothing. There's no gambling, no noisy discos or hip hop bars, there's barely 4 or 5 restaurants on the whole island...and that's just enough. Harbour Lodge is right downtown, yet also on the ocean which is perfect for getting around. We got one of the cottages overlooking the water and couldn't have been happier with it. It was kind of pricy, but upon check in realized it was well worth it. My wife and I agreed if they had a TV and a bigger fridge, we'd sell the house and move there! The place was decked out wonderfully with new fixtures, a tiny yet functional kitchen, and a great king size bed. The ac was powerful yet quiet, so powerful I had to get up in the middle of the night and turn it up. The porch out back overlooked the ocean and was great for morning coffee time. The staff was helpful and considerate and the drinks at the pool bar were done up ice cold and perfect by Gary the bartender. Overall it's a bit more expensive than some of the places on the island, but this was our second visit, first time in the cottages, and we'll definitely go back for the quality.

Room Tip: Blow a few extra bucks on a cottage. Having 4 walls to yourself is worth it.
