The tiled bathrooms are big, clean and well equipped with lots of white towels, a hair dryer, nice bathrobes, and toiletries. As you see in the picture, the partition between the bathroom and the bedroom is of glass with huge wooden blinds.
You may think that this may interfere with the bathroom privacy a bit. Actually it doesn't if you close the blinds. On the other hand you have the option of opening the blinds, enjoy your bath, soaking into the hot tub while having a great view through the open blinds and out through the balcony :-)

Was the Belmont Hill Hotel & Golf Club torn down or converted to something else?? I used two stay there with two doctors who had served with the Canadian navy during WWII at the King George Hospital.

Just returned from a 4 day stay at Newstead Belmont Hills. Unfortunately, my 32 stay in Bermuda leaves me with a very heavy heart. I expected the people at the hotel to be just as warm and hospitable as the "old Bermuda".
People were polite but very business like. Being guest on the breakfast plan limited what you were offered for breakfast (same menu everyday - very boring). The ferry hours were not convenient for shopping in Hamilton.
Not being golf guest you had to "pay" to get to the restaurant at the Belmont (this was not indicated in any of the information sent to us about the hotel). Taxi to the Belmont restaurant and breakfast plan, were false information given by the hotel. It is sad to see what the hotel business is doing to the tourist who love and wish to return to Bermuda.
