Historical Traveler Reviews Ostrich Inn South Creake
Not that great
Was not what was expected, the room was dark, musty and somewhat dirty.
The bathroom was seriously lacking, the house staff were great and very friendly however, the desk staff were snotty and unhelpful. We asked three times to change the room before someone finally stopped with the bad excuses and tried to accomodate the request. A nice pool and beautiful grounds, but I wasn't sleeping outside. The famed veranda really needed a good wash down, bird droppings everwhere and six inches of grit on the floor.
Unless you're lucky enough to stay in the Main House--forget it! Dirty, dank and dark.
Old world charm with all modern facilities
Good location, situated in its own grounds, just a few minutes walk from centre of Hamilton.
Spacious well-equiped very comfortable room - I was in "De Luxe Garden" category. Excellent room lighting with masses of lamps and bed side lights. Bathroom was adequate but nothing special.
Nice afternoon tea, served in lounge, included in room rate, as was on-line internet connection in another lounge. Cooked breakfast, served in room or on veranda, was only just adequate.
Friendly staff who addressed you by name, but some service lapses.
Coffee packs in fridge were not replenished during my 5 day stay, and missing room safe key , reported to reception on my first morning, had not been replaced by time of departure.
Rosedon Hotel - The best hotel on the island!
Rosedon Hotel is a real jewel. Wonderful accomodation, very friendly staff, excellent location. We have been to Bermuda several times and Rosedon is by far the best hotel on the island. Look no further!!
There's no place like home
It's true; there is no place like home at the Rosedon in Bermuda. The staff make you feel as though you are part of their family. I went to tip one of the staff for their incredible hospitality and going above and beyond and he said, "I can't take that from you, you are family.' He then went on to say to my daughter, 'you are like my little sister.
I am glad you had a good time.' We have stayed there twice and are in the process of planning our next trip. It is the ONLY place to stay in Bermuda.
Excellent place but snobby desk
The accommodations are excellent, likewise the property itself with very good service and a lovely pool. Good business location. Shops are two blocks ago. However, the desk service was very snooty: I was kept waiting to check in even though I was the only person waiting to be served. No apology, no "I'll be right with you", no smile. Sorry to have intruded! A blight on what could have been a perfect working vacation.
Rosedon to the rescue.
After a disaster at another hotel, the Rosedon and it's staff rescued my vacation. It is an ease walk to downtown Hamilton and the restaurant district. Many of our fellow guest have returned many times to stay in this quaint hotel with a staff who will show you true Bermudian hospitality. The staff is so friendly that the guests all become friends as well sharing restuarant tips and sightseeing stories.
Try one of the royal rooms, just redecorated.
This hotel has all the amenities needed while maintaining the personal charm of a Bermudian Colonial Inn. Walk to town (Hamilton) in five minutes or less. Breakfast on the veranda was ust delightful and they were always willing to accomodate my husband ( a non-egg eater).
Gracious staff, beautiful gardens and pool. I can't wait to go back.
Could not be better!!
We could not have been more pleased with our choice of The Rosedon to celebrate our 50th. Great location in quiet area five minute walk from shopping, bus, and ferry. Spacious, clean, & comfortable room. Full breakfast included at poolside by our door. Terrific English tea every afternoon. Very attentive staff, especially management! Saw and read of others, but Rosedon is our choice for future visits.
A Taste of the Real Bermuda
If the traveler wants a true taste of Bermuda, Rosedon should be the first choice. It is Bermudian owned, managed, and staffed. Some staff members have been with Rosedon for more than 30 years and there is a genuine feeling of warmth toward each other that also extends to guests, many of whom are repeat visitors. It is a small, elegant hotel but with enough informality that makes it easy for guests to meet one another.
It is within walking distance to Hamiton's shopping and restaurants. One unigue feature is that there are menus of Bermuda's restaurants in the reading room with comments from the guests.
I give Rosedon and its staff my highest recommendation.

On board there's a general system whereby able bodied people get buddied up with someone who needs some extra help around the ship. Whether it be an illness that has caused some form of hearing problem, or a person who uses a wheelchair - to someone who is completely blind and has 1 leg like Kylie.

Everyone from our watch apart from Stretch will be leaving the ship and that always makes for a sad day. Big hugs and assuring each other we will be sure to visit one day or go for a beer if we pass through each others homelands I wave off most of the watch into a taxi off the airport.
