I chose the Forty Winks Inn based on vicinity to the Queen’s Park Savannah, mainly for the night market, the vicinity to the old part of Port of Spain for the old buildings, the local restaurants and also based on the description and reviews. Once I had booked, Pam (the owner) contacted me to check what time my flight was arriving. I was arriving in Trinidad at 0600 and I understood that check in was much later, so I requested to leave our bags at the Inn. Pam offered breakfast and an early check in for a small fee, and I graciously accepted. I’m glad I did. The Inn is a simple two level building with rooms on both floors. We stayed on the ground floor at the back of the building. There is a courtyard along the side of the building where breakfast is served. On the second floor, there is a rooftop garden that is often visited by local birds, including green parrots. The room was simple and comfortable, exactly what I needed as a base for day trips. I had to do coursework during the evenings, so I often sat in the foyer where the wifi was strongest. Pam is a wealth of local knowledge, and asked straight away what my plans were for Trinidad. When I outlined that my list of places of interest and that I’d need a driver, Pam organised a driver who turned out to be better than I could have ever arranged myself – “Sweet” Nick from “Sensational Tours and Transport”. Pam had known Nick for years. I can’t recommend Nick enough, if you’re looking for a guide! We walked to downtown Port of Spain from the Inn, as well as Woodbrook and St James. We were warned to not venture east of Henry St, but honestly we never felt unsafe. Sadly, the only issue I had during my stay was the vicinity to local food. The listings on google maps mostly don’t exist anymore or at least don’t keep the hours on google. It’s an issue in Trinidad and Tobago, and a lot of it is due to a downturn in tourism. There aren’t a lot of local food options available at night nearby, besides the night market (which I would recommend), and you might need to walk a bit further to St James etc. We did get takeaway fish from “Sweet Mouth” at the back of Hereford’s Bar on Maraval Rd a couple of blocks north. We ate it in the rooftop garden at the Inn and it was a great easy option. There is also a Rituals Coffee House a couple of minutes walk away. There is a Massey Stores supermarket a few minutes walk to the south. If I was visiting Port of Spain again, I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Forty Winks Inn again. I enjoyed chatting with Pam over breakfast in the mornings, and discussing our experiences in Trinidad and travelling. And if you’re lucky, you’ll get to meet her beautiful dog Bella.

I recently sent a friend for a vacation to Forty Winks Inn at Port of Spain T&T. This was her first trip outside her home country, first time in an airport and first time on an airplane. She was travelling solo and a little nervous. I spoke to Pam at Forty Winks and explained all this to her. Pam assured me she would take good care of my friend from arrival to departure. Pam arranged for a Spanish speaking driver to pick my friend up at the airport and deliver her to the Inn. She and her staff bent over backwards to accommodate my friend and even took her out to show her the local tourist sights. My friend told me she felt so welcome and at home from the moment she arrived. The rooms was beautiful and very clean, food was excellent and above all the customer service was excellent. Thank you Pam and staff for providing my friend with a wonderful experience at Forty Winks Inn. I’m very happy to recommend this to others.

Forty Winks is a lovely locally owned guesthouse with friendly owner and staff. WiFi is good, there’s a different home cooked breakfast each morning, and a small terrace upstairs which is nice in the evening. Very safe area to walk around, and only 10 mins to Ariapita Ave in the evenings, 3 mins to Queen’s Park Savannah to join the morning joggers. Stay there!

Forty winks was lovely as was Pam and her staff. We loved the rooms, the breakfast and...everything! The building is wonderfully looked after, everything is very clean and the colours of every part of it are joyful and vibrant. There is a lovely terrace with lots of plants and a table with chairs for one to go and enjoy the Caribbean sky. The rooms are lovely and breakfast is cooked fresh every morning. Pam and her staff are always there to help with any query with a smile on their face, nothing is too much for them. Everything ticked all the boxes for us.
