    Fabulous

    The room was very clean and well maintained, the bed was very combfortable.

    The reception did not answer the phone when I called from the room, I tried every number on the phone including the emergency line which was also not answered, I was just trying to get the internet working, but had it have been an emergency someone may have died. I had to walk down to the reception to speak to someone. Very poor

    So many hidden costs added to the room bill almost doubled the room bill. E.G. room cleaning tax, environmental tax, service tax, all per person per night. Internet charge even thought it is stated as been free internet. The two trips organized through the hotel were both over 50 minutes late on pick up from the hotel and end up costing a lot more than the hotel stated.

    The view

    An overpriced money making machine with no heart. Inefficient staff unable to convey a sense of care for the guests - "going through the motions". If you like the appearance of quality without the substance, this is for you. Otherwise avoid. For the price asked, a total sham.

    Atmosphere from colonial times

    They have the widest range of extras I ever seen on a bill be prepare to pay another 40% on top in taxes services and tips induced on you room small

    Fabulous

    I just loved the location, just downtown Nassau with many restaurants just across the street for lunch and just 20 min on foot to many touristic locations such as arawak cay (fish fry), junkanoo beach. The Buillon bar also is a must for cocktail lovers! The private beach is small but very lovely! I would definetely recommend British colonial for those who dont like the cruise-ship feeling of being in fancy paradise island and the resolrts there. Personally I wanted to be downtown and closer to the locals and the local colours of the town.

    The additions to the original price, just too many taxes, though as far as I understood thats how it works in the bahamas in general i.e. restaurants etc

    Overall a good evaluation. One serious negative is very limited if any hot water. There were charges on my final statement that were no mine. The charges were Removed when I complained.

    Es en el mismo Town, limpio en general y mantiene buenos precios de acuerdo a la ubicacion.

    La limpieza es pobre. Las 2 diferentes noches que estuvimos tuvimos incomodades debido a la mala limpieza.

    Exclusive

    Everything was as advertised; the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. When they learned our group was there for my bachelor party, they cheefully upgraded our rooms. We ended up on the sixth floor with a balcony, on the same floor as Prince Harry, who was visiting at the time!

    Fabulous

    Very convenient for exploring Nassau and the surrounding area. The concierge staff were very helpful. The Bullion bar and beach facilities were great. Close to some wonderful local restaurants and the ferry to Paradise Island.

    Showers had low water pressure, bathrooms were a bit tired and could do with an update.

    Did not get the room booked initially; windows, where they exist, do not open; beach is a waveless small stripe of sand; all non smoking

    I am really disappointed and I won't suggest this hotel to anyone. The facilities were very poor.The staff is very unfriendly and unhelpful especially at the reception. It is not like a four star hotel at all.You would expect much better from Hilton brand.

    Guest rating

    The rooms are quite spacious and comfortable, and the staff very friendly. Food in hotel's restaurant, although pricy, was very good.

    Very disappointing beach - tiny, dirty and noisy because of all the ferry boats coming by. We were not aware that the hotel was located nearby the port, and would never go there if we knew. Definetely not for the travellers looking to appreciate the nice coast of Bahamas...
