Fort Young was full so I had to use this hotel. Very basic rooms. Breakfast was not satisfying and no amenities to speak of. The service from the staff and the water views are the best part of the hotel. It's dated and really only recommend if you are on a budget and need to be in town for a...

I am not going to tell you this hotel compares to a big city hotel but I will tell it was clean. It had no damp or mildew smells. The room was actually on the large size and the area is near a market and the cruise ports. The restaurant was nice, I had jerk ribs they were ok but...

I was very impressed by the staff hospitality - front desk, room service, dining. A shout out to Nigel and Sylvester. They went out of their way to make my stay a satisfactory one. Service with a smile. There is no doubt that the hotel needs refurbishing but the rooms are clean. If you are looking for a hotel with...

The staff was very nice. Nigel and Sylvester will help with whatever you need and if they don't have the answer it's a quick phone call to get you what you need. The air conditioning went off a couple of times but it was quickly dealt with. The 5th floor terrace was a great comfort as we sat out there...

The adage, "Location, location, location" is perfect for this hotel. And the reason I recommend it! Nothing in the room stands out for me as exceptional. Big bed, pull out couch, A/C, ceiling fan, hot water, kettle, fridge. All nice things for two weary travellers to have in a hot and humid country. But the service was great. Everyone was...

The Garraway Hotel isn’t as nice as the management photos indicate. It’s an older building. The bar inside extends outside and they sell beer and sodas on the patio. Pay for a drink and you get wifi. Signal is awful though and there are a ton of people trying to use it. Restrooms are yucky. You have a street view...

We always appreciate comments which are balanced and constructive. Wifi signal can be low especially when hundreds of people are trying to get on as it is free which is a service provided to clients by the hotel.

Facilities are basic and run-down as others are saying - for the cost per night you would think they can spend some money fixing it up! Shana on reception was extremely helpful when we were stranded after missing our cruise ship. Wi-fi worked but there were no iPhone charging options. The food in the restaurant was below average and the...

At the time you arrived Dominica had just experienced one of its worst tropical storms and the hotel remained open for business despite the problem you describe just to accommodate visitors given the damage sustained from Tropical Storm 'Erica'. We apologize for the inconvenience but this has to be considered in the context of what the country was going through...
