“Best room ever!! Well kept hotel with freiendly service.”
Simply put, this was the best room we have ever had at any hotel (many high end and expensive). It was more like a small condo acutually. It may not be everyone's cup of tea due to the fact that there is no beach on the hotel grounds and you do have to play the "shuttle game" to get tp the beach, golf course or Hamilton itself. But the room, deck and view more than made up for it. There was no big crowd anywhere at the hotel. The infinity pool is not huge, but very nice and pool bar great for that relief from the sun. Both restaurants (Beau Rivage and Blu at the golf course) we found to be outstanding, particularly for seafood which we looked forward to. Best of all was the room which simply had everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable time. Large bathroom with walk in shower and whirlpool tub. Kitchen with everything needed to eat in as much as you care to. Best of all a huge and comfortable deck with awesome views to enjoy at every moment of the day. I would highly recommand the Newstead for a relaxing vacation, great room, clean thoughout, friendly staff and complete (if not overbearing) facilities. This is the perfect, luxurious escape from the rat race!
The Newstead was an excellent choice for our girls golf getaway. Four of us shared two rooms and we were all extremely pleased with the hotel, restaurant, shuttles, pools and the service. Beautiful views from every room. The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff went overboard to ensure that our every need was met. The shuttle to the golf course everyday saved us a lot of money and hassle as did the water shuttle to downtown Hamilton. We all loved Bermuda and when we return it will definitely be to the Newstead!
“A Beautiful Spot”
We were quite pleased with our choice of the Newstead. We booked a 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite for our family of 4 and found it very roomy, nicely furnished, with a large porch and balcony overlooking the pool and an amazing view of Hamilton harbour. Luxurious master bath and we went to sleep each night with with a view of the Hamilton city lights from our bed. The central location was good for getting to Hamilton, beaches and Somerset by taxi, shuttle, or scooters, but walking anywhere was not practical. The hotel has a free 7- minute ferry service to Hamilton, but it only runs for a few hours in the a.m. and again in the p.m. (last return from Hamilton about 8:30) and doesn't run when raining or on Sundays, so we often had to take a taxi (about $10) to or from Hamilton. There is a free shuttle to the Belmont Hills Golf Club and Blu restaurant -- neither of which are adjacent to or within walking distance of the Newstead. Free shuttle to airport also, but must be arranged 24 hrs in advance. I gave 3 on maintenance because a/c was not working in part of our suite when we arrived, but they quickly moved us to a comparable suite when we reported it. I gave 4 on cleanliness b/c both suites had a small problem with tiny ants, but I gather they're a problem everywhere in Bermuda, regardless of how clean the room is -- just be careful not to leave anything out that would attract them!
For beach lovers the hotel may not be in the best location as you do have to take a shuttle which goes to Horseshoe beach or ask the concierge to take you to an alternative. However we do recommend hiring scooters we did initially for 3 days but then extended for the whole 14 day vacation, complete freedom According to my wife the spa is excellent if a little expensive actually most things are in Bermuda. Golf course is superb and as residents you get a complimentary round of golf each day (if you can avoid weekends) Hotel also arranged for tennis lessons. Restaurant is excellent but again expensive as is the one at the Golf Course Blu (excellent sushi) While the boat shuttle service over to Hamilton seems not to run in the afternoons it is no trouble to take the public ferry as the drop off point is right next to the hotel. Generally speaking this hotel is used by businessmen visiting Hamilton which makes it quite quiet, except you my get some locals booking in for the weekend then its a little livelier, our room was 730 be prepared for some road noise as well as tree frogs, insulation between our room and next door is not the best but we soon got used to it, the balcony and view is outstanding.
“Bermuda sub-tropical refinement”
Recently redone, Newstead offers great amenities and quite a luxurious atmosphere. The villas are spacious and modern, access to Hamilton (via private shuttle) is convenient. The Onions are great and represent a sub-tropical european elegance. Day trips and beach access are all convenient. Dinning is above average on site and locally. We shall return.
“Very nice hotel, great pool!”
Unfortunately I went with my kids and fiance in the wrong season, the kids could not enjoy the pool. The pool was breathtaking how it overlooked the ocean, I loved the room we stayed in, it was perfect for our family of four, we made much of our trip and stay in the hotel although we were very limited for the winter season, I would definitely recommend this hotel but in the summer and warmer months, keep in mind Bermuda was expensive compared to NYC where we live.
Excellent staff that is friendly, cheerful and willing to answer your questions and make helpful suggestions. Shuttle takes you to private Coco Beach and the Coco Beach Resort guests use the golf course. Food was excellent and even the catered dinners were great.
Great time great location pool heater should have been on at this time of year
“Golfing family hotel”
Perfect for golfers. Notice that you must drive for most activities, however. A free shuttle is available for golf and beach. A free ferry is available for shopping and tennis is available on the grounds.
“A wonderful hotel in Hamilton, Bermuda”
I had to reschedule our visit by one day earlier so we would miss the Boston Blizzard of 2013. I had reserved a Junior Deluxe Room, and when we arrived, we were put into a 1 bedroom suite. They upgarded us without asking us and at no additional charge. A beautiful hotel with great views of the harbor and the City of Hamilton. All rooms face the harbor. The people who work at Newsteads could not have been nicer or more friendly. They could not do enough for you and really made you feel welcome. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
