Reviewed 30 September 2016

I've just come out of 5 months of shuttling back and forth to Bermuda every week, and stayed at the Rosemont on all but one of those occasions. The Rosemont isn't exactly a luxury property, but a good place to stay for a longer period of time. Its kitchen facilities also help in keeping costs down, since dining out in Bermuda is very expensive.
As far as I can tell, there are three room types:
1. The standard rooms in the main building. These are all well-maintained and a decent size, however I found the bathroom and kitchen just a little too small to be truly functional (e.g. a bit of a battle between the bathroom door and shower door, which is bad enough when you're alone, and even worse when there's two of you).
2. 3 penthouse suites at the top of the main building. The view from up there is fantastic, and they have huge balconies, however the one time I stayed in one (the penthouse lounge, in the middle), I felt that it could do with a major update. The kitchen was a joke and the bathroom looked like it was from the 80s, which isn't the case for the other rooms.
3. My favorites: B1, B2, C1, C2. These are in their own separate bungalows and have a different layout from the standard rooms, most importantly, the kitchen and bathroom are bigger and much more functional. If you have the chance, try to specify that you want to stay in one of these - the C building is slightly better since it's a little more private.

Note that all rooms have connecting doors on both sides, which is great if your party is staying in more than one room, but does enable noise to travel. The B and C rooms are good in this respect too, since you only ever have one neighbor.
Having said all that, the rooms are spotless. No sign of bugs anywhere, which is tough in that kind of climate. Body wash and shampoo dispensers are provided in the shower, as well as liquid soap and a bar of soap by the wash basin. There is a large closet for storage, as well as an in-room safe.
All the rooms have king beds, although they're essentially two twin beds bolted together. They will separate them on request.

One thing I noticed throughout my stays is that there is continuous improvement going on:
- All the rooms are having their old carpets replaced with tile floors;
- The Wifi was terrible at the beginning, but is now pretty decent. Note that there are at least three Wifi networks, so if you don't have good connectivity, it's worth checking whether you have a stronger signal from one of the others;
- The pillows are being replaced (although I'm not a fan of the new ones - too firm);
- The towels have been replaced (though the bath towels are still on the small side)

As other reviewers have mentioned, there is what may be called a "continental breakfast" available in the reception area. This consists of mediocre muffins and a selection of yoghurts. Tea and coffee are available throughout the day. This gets old pretty quickly, so if you don't want to go out for breakfast, it's easiest to stock your kitchen at Miles Market, which is 5 minutes down the road.

Everyone I met there was lovely. Lisa was there every Monday at check in to welcome me back, and everyone at reception was always friendly and happy to help, whether it was by booking a cab or supplying me with needle and thread.

The Rosemont's location is good - it's one of the few Bermuda hotels that are actually in Hamilton, so it's very walkable. It's on a little hill, which gives it great views over Hamilton bay. Shopping, restaurants, the ferry and bus terminals are only a 5 to 10 minute walk away.

Room Tip: Ask for the B or C rooms if you can, the layout is better. Otherwise, the G rooms are good since the...

I have been to Bermuda many times over the last 30 years and have stayed in a variety of hotels around the island. My favourite by far is the Rosemont Hotel run by the owner Mr. Stephens. This hotel is ideally located near the centre of Hamilton and quite walkable, no need for a taxi. The Bermuda transportation system is good and can take you anywhere on the island that you wish to go to. The hotel itself has pleasant rooms each with a small kitchen completer with stove, fridge, microwave and utensils. The pool area overlooks the bay and is beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonable place to stay. If you want room service and all of the facilities of a 5 star this is not for you.

First, this was my first time to Bermuda. I'm used to staying in name brand hotels, so I was a little hesitant. The reservation was made for me, so I didn't have a choice.

The hotel was close to front st, which us where all the shops and restaurants are. It was totally walkable within about 10 minutes.

The rooms are all entered from the outside, but was safe. The rooms were nice, which was a pleasant surprise. I would stay here again, when I go back.

This hotel was a fantastic place to stay for a few days. It's a short walk into town or the ferry dock, so an ideal place to check out Hamilton, or really all of Bermuda. The room was very comfortable with a great view.

Our room had a nice kitchenette, although we didn't use it for our one night stay.

Hotel provides coffee and a small breakfast offering in the mornings, and the pool looked very nice.

A good friendly hotel which operates more like a motel. The hotel owners were friendly and always helpful.
The rooms were clean and well appointed with a good view of the harbor.
A limited continental breakfast was available for guests in the hotel reception area.
The hotel is within easy walking distance to the city centre.
The swimming pool was good and well patronized.
The WiFi was reliable during the stay.
