Beautiful hotel overlooking the Hamilton Harbour

Posted Jan 1, 2017
This hotel is truly a gem in Bermuda! It doesn't have a beach body makes up if amazing breathtaking views of the Hamilton Harbour both day and night. The staff are amazingly friendly the facilities at a clean and immaculate in the rooms can only be described as heavenly.

Lovely staff

Just got back from a week at the Newstead. Staff were wonderful. Location was great as we were staying for a sailing event. Great access to Hamilton on free shuttle ferry. Room was clean. Would recommend this hotel. If you want a beach holiday then better to stay along the south coast.

Amazing Place!

Posted Oct 9, 2016
Pros: Beautiful grounds and views as well as the spacious suite.
Cons: No convenience store.
Location: Hamilton is a short ferry ride away where you can take public transportation to everywhere on the island. Evdry part of Bermuda is lovely!
We loved the Newstead! The view from our balcony was beautiful and the grounds were lovely. Our suite was so comfortable and spacious with a full kitchen. We ordered food from the Zanzibar restaurant and it was very good. We used the complimentary ferry to Hamilton every day. The only thing missing was a convenience store which would have been helpful. We would definitely recommend this resort!

Good but needs improvements

Posted Sep 26, 2016
Pros: Views, staff, location, golf
Cons: Beds, showers
Location: Golf was handy and the shuttle to Hamilton took less than 5 minutes. Great restaurant in Hamilton.
The staff were very good (Sierra, Brooks and Denzel were great). Clean rooms with a beautiful view. The beds were uncomfortable and had polyester sheets that felt like rubber. The shower is dangerous as there are no grips and very steep. We transferred to as handicap room for a normal shower. This is a great place but it needs attention to the above.

Pros: The restaurant and bar staff was pleasant, service was quick, food good. The pool and lounge area was lovely.
Cons: 1) unhelpful front desk and concierge 2) drainage in tub; 3) noisy, bouncy coil mattress; 4) broken mini fridge; 5) extremely limited ferry service
Location: You can't really walk anywhere. Complimentary shuttle and ferry is extremely limited and not convenient.
My husband and I stayed at Newstead for our anniversary over an extended Labour Day Weekend. We love to travel and have visited over 20 different countries. In our younger days we stayed at 3 star properties, but now that we are more established, we treat ourselves and splurge on upscale accommodations. We prefer Kimpton, Fairmont and Shangrila Groups. However, we decided to do something different for this holiday and we completely regret our decision to stay at Newstead. As I stated, my husband and I have many experiences of luxury service that goes over and above and premises that wows. Sadly, Newstead overwhelmingly disappoints and rates more like a mid-range establishment with a luxury price tag.

The only real complaint I had is that we never knew we would be asked to pay $100 to sit on two beach chairs at Elbow Beach, one of the two beach resorts they shuttle guests to
