Little Pomander Guest House Bermuda
Hotel Category: $, Location: Paget Parish
This bright pink colored guest house is one of the oldest buildings in the island. Little Pomander was constructed some 400 years ago. Located in Paget Parish and quite close to Hamilton City, this guest house sits on a quiet one-way residential street that edges along a narrow inlet of Hamilton harbor. From the rooms, garden and terraces, you get a wonderful view of the harbor.
The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute
(BUEI) can also be seen from this property across the waters. The backside of the cottage has a lawn overlooking the town across the water. There are lawn chairs set out and there is a provision for barbecue. Rooms have wi-fi internet access.
While the rooms are slightly aging, all 5 rooms are clean and quite spacious. The rooms come with private bathrooms, cable TVs, microwave, fridge, telephone, clock radio and air conditioning. Most of the rooms have views of the water. some rooms have fireplaces.
The house has a large garden and summer terrace where you can sit on chairs, relax and watch the boats and cruise ships pass by in Hamilton Harbor.

My overall opinion
Little Pomander was not probably built to make it a guest house. It's more of a converted guest house, so you get a homelike feeling. But there are signs of aging and it requires some refurbishing to be done. Some fixtures and furnishing need to be changes or upgraded.
Otherwise with its great location, Pat as a nice host, a wonderful view of the harbor from the back side lawn, it's a good value for money. After all it's close to Hamilton city.
