I highly recommend upgrading to ocean room as the views are amazing and somewhat larger than interior court yard rooms. The positive: -Beds are comfortable -Rooms are clean -Front desk staff lovely to deal with Room for improvement: -restaurant service in the court yard is very slow -Extended restaurant hours would be ideal considering that everything in the vicinity begins...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 March 2017

Wonderful hotel. Clean and staff were very friendly. The Buddy Dive Dominica is a wonderful dive shop. The local staff were just wonderful, friendly and went above and beyond the call of dutu. I would highly recommend.

Nice hotel, great rooms, most rooms have good ocean views. Pool could be larger for swimming. Lunch staff at bar was understaffed causing delays in service. Nice, efficient, safe dive operation, but thought dive sites were limited.

We spent two nights at this place. The first one was in a standard rate room near by the rondabout and it was a bit noisy. We complained to the front desk in order to get a less noisy room and the manager decided to upgrade our room to a suite for free. We did not expect such a commercial...

Visited in April 2017. Hotel has a nice history attached to it and is very well maintained. The rooms were a good size with amazing views (I had one of the ocean view rooms). It's pretty much in the centre of town so while it's very quiet, there are some small bars close by if you feel like stepping out...

When we are working in Dominica, the Fort Young Hotel is our favourite. Staff are laid back and friendly and the hotel has what most modern ones don't - loads of character. Currently the West Indies and Pakistan cricket teams are staying here and the hotel is busy but doesn't feel it. Dominica is just a great place and if...

Recently a group of us stayed at the Fort Young Hotel. Our group stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. The diving was good. The hotel was very nice. Our room was well appointed. Our balcony overlooked Caribbean Sea. We were a short walk from the pool, the dining room, and the dive shop. Service was good. The...

This hotel is a place to remember; built on the grounds of an old fort - it incorporates all surviving features of it, ramparts, courtyard, even some shiny brass canons, polished daily. The layout is unusual: five levels, with one entrance at the top, another at the bottom - but it is very convenient, once you figure out what is...

Very good hotel, probably the best in Roseau! I only stayed two nights this trip. I found the hot food very good, but the salad ingredients were not fresh. Room and staff were very good. Fitness area had some equipment down for repairs. Since it was a small facility, this made it a less than enjoyable experience this trip.
