I frequent Nassau all winter long for work. This is the best place to stay, with the exception of Paradise Island. The hotel has reliable WiFi in the rooms, lobby, and on the beach. The breakfast buffet is great, and the rooms are clean. Hhonors points really rack up here too.

Very nice hotel conveniently located in Nassau. The hotel is well appointed and the ocean view room we had was very comfortable. We had access to the lounge, free drinks and canapés in the evening. The restaurant was limited and generally expensive. Overall the hotel was a nice experience, however a number of cruise ships are allowed access to the...

We stayed here at either end of our out island vacation - great location to wander around downtown Nassau - lots of shopping and bars and restaurants very close by. Pool and patio were great as well - Staff was professional and courteous.

if you like downtown hotels close to bars and restaurants and with a nice private beach this might be right for you. It's an old historic hotel that is mostly updated. The rooms are nice but small for the price. They have a small private beach with views of the cruise ships coming in and out. Fat Tuesdays and senior...

We stayed in a "city view" for spring break last week. The lobby is beautiful. Location is close to shopping and museums and restaurants. However, our room was in great need of renovation/remodel. Our bathroom was so small we couldn't open the door 2 ft without hitting the toilet. Most of the pool area furniture needs to be replaced. As...

what a wonderful hotel, though I did not stay, I did however attend a wedding. The lobby is plain, but the bar is wonderful, it is attached to the private beach where you can watch the cruise ships come and go!

Beautiful old hotel. It was probably the classiest hotel in the area at one time. The lobby was dark, had beautiful woodwork and interior. It had what appeared to be a very high skylight ceiling in the huge lobby but there wasn't much light coming in. Rooms were nice but the bathroom sink counter was very small for two people...

The British Colonial is located in downtown Nassau, Bahamas. It is a lovely beach front hotel. What impressed me and my husband immensely about the hotel was the warmth and professionalism of its staff. My husband and I received some bad news while we were eating in the hotel's restaurant. Somehow, Shelly Wright noticed my husband's grief and spoke to...

Stopped in Nassau on a Disney Cruise and didn't want the hectic Atlantis option. The Hilton offers an excellent day package that is a bit pricey but offers $40/adult and $20/child in food/beverage credits. Just a short 10 minute walk from the ship to the hotel and you enter instant peace. Beautiful private beach with lots of chairs/umbrellas, large pool,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on downtown Nassau’s only private beach and the site of Old Fort Nassau, the British Colonial Hilton in the Bahamas has undergone a multi-million renovation throughout all areas of the hotel, and offers a taste of the island’s rich history, along with some of the most modern amenities for both business and vacation travelers. What’s more the hotel is only 25 minutes from Nassau (Lynden Pindling International) Airport. The hotel is a true Bahamian experience with a marble-tiled lobby and is studded with palm trees under a skylight ceiling. There are 288 luxuriously appointed guest rooms with harbor or island views. All rooms are furnished with tasteful decor, complemented by separate shower and bathtub. One-bedroom suites offer a separate living area with sofa bed, and Executive accommodations are also available along with the Executive Lounge, where attentive hotel staff assures that every need and whim will be met during your stay. Recreational activities are convenient and varied for leisure and business travelers alike. A 300-ft long private white sand beach is furnished with lounge chairs and thatched sunshades overlooking the harbor offering a peaceful and secluded access for an ocean swim or a day in the sun. Use of kayaks and snorkeling gear on the beach is complimentary. Bordered on one side by a tropical garden, the hotel's freshwater pool offers harbor views and has an expansive sundeck with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Both the sundeck and beach offer views of cruise ships moored nearby, and of the western tip of Paradise Island, 300 yards offshore. Guests can snooze in hammocks on the lawn adjacent to the pool. The property can also organize trips out reef snorkeling island exploring, boating, golf, tennis and scuba diving. For dining options, Aqua is a fun, casual restaurant serving international favorites with a Caribbean flair, or guests can meet up for cocktails at the Bullion Bar. The new Bullion Bar is the 'place to be seen' for happy hour with great drink specials and tasty snacks. ... more   less
