Waterloo House Bermuda
A favorite hotel in Hamilton
Category: $$$$ Location: Hamilton, Pembroke Parish
Waterloo House is an elegant and one of the most British of the Bermuda hotels located right on the Hamilton harbor. With a manor house and surrounding cottages dating back to 1815, the hotel has over four acres of terraced gardens. It was established as a hotel in the 1930s. There used to be private mansion of the Wainwright family, merchants who built it in 1812, and named it after that year's most decisive military victory, Waterloo.
Waterloo House, although set in the perfect location for a tranquil relaxation, also offers a great deal for the business executives coming into Bermuda. A lot of business conveniences are available in all rooms. The hotel is within walking distance from the heart of the city. Many of the historic and cultural sites on the island are all within a close reach.There are 23 rooms and 6 suites in Waterloo House.
Rooms are of different size and decor. Each gives a flavor of a country-house guest room. There is a newer wing that offers small studios and twin-bedded units. There are five cottages that are the most expensive ones. They have living and dining areas and refrigerators (but no kitchens). They also have spacious and excellent bathrooms. Although the bathrooms in the hotel's newer wing are larger and better maintained, we still like the older units for their quaint charm.
The gardens within the Waterloo House has palms, magnolias, poinsettias, urns. There is also a fountain. There are white wrought-iron garden chairs and tables shaded with fringed parasols. You will also find nooks for drinks and sunbathing, and shade trees surrounding the swimming pool. The main dining room overlooks the terrace and harbor. On the lower terrace level is a bar lounge with English armchairs and hand-woven pillow covers.
If you are a smoker, you may like to reconsider before making reservation. This is a non-smoking property.
By the way, Waterloo House has some of the finest chefs in the island. One of our top favorites in this hotel is to take lunch on the sunny lawn at marina's edge. You should not miss this. However, you have another great option if you are staying here. Horizons is a sister property of Waterloo House Bermuda and is located at the south shore.
You can easily avail the facilities at Horizons as well. So what does that mean? This means that you can dine at the Horizons with the $50 MAP supplement – a great deal. You can also play golf at Horizons and sign up for water sports at its otherwise private coral beach. Well you can play tennis as well at its Tennis Club.
