Good quality .. nice staff ..awesome views. Located right in the heart of downtown so you need no transportation. Bang for your buck. The staff is really nice. Only downfall is no complimentary wifi lol..

As with many things in life, a lot of times its all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, and the British Colonial Hilton has a perfect one. Its a 10-15 min walk to the Arawak Cay Fish fry which is the best choice for true Bahamian cuisine. You are literally right on Bay street so shopping, restaurants, and nightlife is within a...

Extremely friendly staff. Service could be a bit better and bathrooms need to be remodeled. Really old and not in the best condition. HHonors members (even Diamond)must wait in the same queue as all other guests to check in and check out..although there is a sign at reception for HHonors guests... it's just a sign but no special service.

I stayed during the off-season (November 2013, not 2014) and the weather was perfect. The water was lovely. The grounds were clean. Staff was as friendly as I expected, being an US Soldier solo on R&R. The club level was wonderful, with it's special space on the top floor away from most of the other guests (definitely worth the extra...

We left a previously booked hotel at Cable Beach - extremely loud music blaring and too far from town- and moved to the British Colonial.

Should be better maintained for the price, but everyhting in Nassau is overpriced for the value. Slightly but not terribly worn around the edges, so to speak. Nice pool and beach, but beach lounges needed restoration. Resturant with good food and service. Pleasant and well laid out rooms.

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

“Don't choose this hotel. Lots of other options for the price.”
  • Headboard/lighting shelf over the bed...was probably last dusted a year ago
  • Black mold growing on shower walls.
  • This is a so-called ocean view
  • bathroom and shower doors opening into one another...mirror on back of door could easily smash
  • Why not just fill that hole in? Or silicon the metal ring to the wall to cover it?
  • Very dusty headboard, pics don't do it justice. This is over the bed.
