We have just returned from our 8th visit to the Rosedon since 2003. We now regard it as "our second home"! The warm welcome on arrival sets the tone for the rest of the visit. The staff are extremely friendly and make everyone feel special. The rooms are very comfortable and well equiped. Regular returning guests all have their own favourite rooms. We have always requested the same room overlooking the pool. The garden is a special place full of many and varied plants covered in beautiful flowers. It is a joy to sit outside our room at all times of the day, but particulary in the evening when the tree frogs are in full voice.What makes the Rosedon so special, to us, is the interaction between the guests which regularly starts at breakfast and continues at afternoon tea on the terrace. Many of the guests are now friends with whom we remain in contact throughout the year. One of the highlights of the Rosedon is the Swizzle Party on a Tuesday evening and should not be missed! Rum swizzles, delicious food and great company, what more could you want? The Rosedon is, for us, in a location second to none as we use the buses and ferries to get around this beautiful island. They all originate in and return to Hamilton and the termini are a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The monthly travel pass represents very good value for money for our 16 day trip. There are numerous excellent restaurants throughout the island many of which are within easy walking distance of the Rosedon. All in all, our stay at the Rosedon is one of the high points of our year and before we left we booked our room for next year. Roll on October 2012! Only 50 weeks to go!

The Rosedon Hotel is lovely. We stayed for 7 nights in October. The staff were more than helpful, always smiling, always happy and always willing. We stayed in Room 61, which was one of the rooms around the pool and the room was charming. We saw lots of wildlife from our room each morning, from the lovely colourful birds, to a bright green lizard and the odd frog or two, it was so nice to sit and watch this over breakfast each day. The honour bar was a wonderful idea and the ice machine too made our stay even more comfortable. The in room I-Pod dock was a very nice touch and we listened to this each day, we were so impressed with it that I have come back home and am going to buy one myself. The breakfasts were superb and we didnt feel the need to eat again until the evening. The afternoon tea was super and we managed to get to around 3 of these during the week, when you can chat to the other guests and get to know everyone. The Swizzle party on Tuesday evening was also very nice and another chance to meet fellow guests. We took the free shuttle bus to the beach one day and this was very easily done and the beaches were stunning. We also hired a moped for 2 days to have a look around Bermuda. The Rosedon is just a short walk to Hamilton centre, where you can catch the ferry to to other parts of the Island. The Rosedon cat "Owen" is a sweetie and will probably come and say hello during your trip, he likes lots of attention and we will miss seeing him every morning and every evening. I would recommend a stay at The Rosedon without hesitation, if you prefer more personal service then pick here rather than one of the larger hotels.

Room Tip: Room 61 and 62 are excellent ground floor rooms close to the pool.

My husband and I just spent our honeymoon at the Rosedon Hotel. It was absolutely perfect! We had never been to Bermuda before and stayed here at the suggestion of my parents. They had spent their honeymoon at the Rosedon 30 years ago and have raved about it ever since. The staff was friendly, helpful and wonderful. Our room was beautiful and everything was just perfect. We loved afternoon tea on the front porch and having rum swizzles at the swizzle party! We cannot wait to come back and celebrate our anniversaries here.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great. We stayed in the rooms surrounding the pool rather than in the main hou...

We had been absent from our visits to Bermuda since 2009 for various reasons, but this year we made it a point to go back. Although we've stayed in other places in the past, the Rosedon is, by far, our favorite. So much so, it's the only place we will stay. The rooms are well kept and nicely decorated. The breakfasts, each morning, are plentiful and satisfying and best enjoyed outside your room where you can relax and read the newspaper, meet and greet other guests or just take in the beauty of the gardens. After a full day of fun and exploring the Island, many guests gravitate back to the front porch of the Hotel for the 4:00pm tea served with finger sandwiches and cake. Perfect for a late afternoon snack. An event that shouldn't be missed is the Swizzle Party held on Tuesday evenings. It is a marvelous way to meet and chat more extensively with other guests. Hamilton is a short jaunt from the Hotel with it's many shops and restaurants. Although we always rent a scooter to get around, many tourists prefer the bus pass. You can also hire a taxi to take you 'round the Island for a private tour. Other places of interest: Dockyard, St Georges and the beaches with their pink sand and crystal clear turquoise water....Last ,but certainly not least, the staff at Rosedon. I just can't say enough good about them. Friendly, helpful, courteous, sincere and knowledgeable. They make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Yes, we'll be back to the Rosedon this time next year. It's like going home again.....

We spent a fabulous 8 days here, the room we had was spacious well appointed and very comfortable.
Breakfast served every morning on the terrace outside was great and the service was excellent.
Only 5 minutes walk into Hamilton centre and the ferries to the dockyard and St George.
Scooter hire is a must, you can see all of the island in a few days.
Will definately use again!
