We agree with some of the comments in the review recently given by Rick P but overall our experience was a more positive one. Our room, on the lower floor, was comfortable enough, good shower, broad verandah & lovely view. Breakfast service was very slow, we didn't see any butter and sometimes no milk but the fruit was fresh, omelettes...

This hotel sits on the hilltop above Ross University and has a great view of the ocean and Portsmouth. My room was spacious, spotless and well priced. I would definitely stay here again instead of being based in Roseau. Dinner in the restaurant was mediocre- but given that it was Valentine's Day I think they were overstretched. Breakfast was quick,...

Amazing time with the Best Hospitality. Liz and Hans made us feel like family. Thank you so much for an amazing honeymoon :) Our room was very cozy, beautifully decorated. There was entertainment every night. Breakfast was overlooking the mountain and Caribbean Sea which is spectacular and breakfast is made to order. Could not have asked for anything more.

Le Champs was very poor. It advertises itself as individually designed boutique rooms, but our room was no more than a rather poor and a bit grubby motel style accommodation. They also advertised a poolside but this was in fact a hot tub on a large decking. The decking had sun beds, but no way could these be described as...

What a lovely place tucked into the lush hillside above the ocean! This is a perfect place to stay if you have a student at Ross University as it's a 5 minute walk away! The owner is very knowledgeable about things to do in Dominica. And the breakfast is delicious! I'll be back!

My family and I were in Picard/Portsmouth for the Christmas Holiday. The Champs advertised a special Christmas Eve dinner and we decided to make a reservation. The chef, Eric, is superb! The pumpkin soup, the lobster macaroni and cheese, the filet mignon, everything was absolutely delicious! We highly recommend The Champs Restaurant!
