Fabulous island, people are so friendly, Brightside is a family orientated place. My appartement is very clean and spacious. One of the best places I have ever been to. Would highly recommend it to others.

When i first drove up i thoughr it was a cool place. I thought the property was in a good location. Not too far from the beach, the aquarium and you could catch the bus with no problem. The owner was pleasant and professional. Perhaps I didn't read about house keeping but she never came to clean up our room...

I recently stayed in Bermuda for my sister's destination wedding in July of 2013. We actually have family in Bermuda and they confirmed our UPGRADED rooms before we called to give Michael (the manager) our credit card information. I called one week out to ensure all was well and Michael stated that we were "upgraded to the two bedroom family...

I recently traveled from Washington, DC to Bermuda for a friends 60th birthday party in April 2013. Our group occupied eight (8) units on the property. The property has a family friendly environment located in the Flatts. Guests have the ability to cook in the units which will help save money. The supermarket is a 10 minute bus ride. Bermuda...

Not being able to afford the higher end resorts and guest cottages, we found this to be a wonderful alternative, a charming boldly blue collection of apartments situated toward the east end of the island in Flatts village right on all the major thoroughfares overlooking a picturesque inlet and harbor and across the road from the aquarium with great walks...

Doing Bermuda on a budget is somewhat an oxymoron. However, if you’re looking for areas to pinch, the Brightside Apartments is a good option. We did $150/night over Memorial Day weekend. They give you a bed to sleep-in, a lock on your door, running hot water, AC, WiFi, and a pool. It’s steps away from three bus routes (3, 10,...

My husband and I have traveled a lot and are not fussy people. We don't need a lot of bells and whistles to be content in a hotel. But we both were left feeling disappointed by our experience at Brightside. It has so much potential for being one of the few affordable backpacker-style hotels in Bermuda, but unfortunately it falls...

Brightside (with the emphasis on the 'bright' paintwork) has its decor stuck firmly in the 80s. However the studio apartment we had was well equipped, spotlessly clean with a wonderful daily maid service and is in a good location. Would recommend it as a base for exploring beautiful Bermuda. We just shower, eat breakfast and go out for the whole...

The Brightside Guest Apartments are very nice. Located in Flatts, Bermuda, they are right at a central point of the island, and a nice spot. The marina and Flatts Bridge are always bustling with people and boats, and provide very nice views from the apartments. The apartments all have (shared) verandas, with nice wicker chairs outside. We stayed in a...

Please do not stay at Brightside!! When you pull up the outside is beautiful but please dont be fooled by that. Once I got in my room, there were dirty towles in my bathroom and urine on the toilet. The kitchen area was nasty the coffee pot had mold in it. The microwave was filled with old food and the...
