The gray cliff hosts an elegant wine lunch with tours of their amazing wine cellar (number 3 in the world) cigar factory and chocolate factory. Great way to spend a few hours in nasseau. We had been there almost 30 years ago and we're excited to go back. Very close to where the cruise ships dock. Short walk or quick...

We stayed here for two nights and couldn't have been more delighted. Had no idea what to expect upon arrival and it exceeded all my expectations. We slept in the Woodes Rogers room which was beautiful and looks just as pictured in the Graycliff coffee table book. The AC works brilliantly as needed on a June vacation when the humidity...

Cigar Rolling Lesson at Graycliff was so cool! After giving us the history of how cigars are made and the types of leaves used to make cigars, walked thru the huge humidor and learned about how long they let them sit for, we got to watch them roll the cigars. After watching both my husband and I got to choose...

The Graycliff is one of the best luxury experiences that you'll find if you're also a history lover. At more than 300 years old and counting, you're literally surrounded by that history at every turn. I didn't stay in any of the rooms, but the property is open to the public for limited viewing. The foyer area is like walking...

Despite having cancelled my reservation 3+ weeks prior to my arrival, the extremely rude accounts manager refused to reverse the no-show fee of $350 charged to my credit card. How would I know the name of the person I spoke to and that she was working that particular day and time unless I truly did call . I was told...

Graycliff, Manager at Graycliff Hotel, responded to this review

Dear BermudaBella, While we appreciate your frustration, it is our policy that guests must return to their original form of booking to cancel reservations. Just as our front desk agent advised you. And she's 1000% sure that she advised you as such. Also, after you called and didn't get an email confirming your cancellation did you not think that was...

We stayed main part of the hotel in the Baillou suite. It was an absolutely gorgeous room filled with antiques and little touches of luxury. The room opened directly on to the expansive front balcony which was a peaceful place to have an evening drink. We had breakfast in the hotel every day and I think that was my favourite...

The Graycliff is located in downtown Nassau. The interior reminds one of the colonial era. The main building was once owned by royalty. The hotel is across the street from the Government House and it is close to the main shopping area on Bay Street. It is well-appointed with antique furniture and paintings. The lounge is spacious and comfortable. Rooms...

We were told to visit the Graycliff by our Taxi driver. We walked over from Bay St and simply told the first person we encountered that we wanted to tour. We were then advised that the general tour was self-guided and we were free to walk around the grounds as long as we liked. The gardens are amazing, you can...

We stayed here two nights, one night on either end of our trip in Inagua. The first night we were in the Windsor room; it was a bit down at the heels. the second night we stayed in the Woodes Rogers room, which was beautiful.
