I stayed three nights at the Forty Winks Inn. The room was small, but very clean, and the shower had good pressure and hot water. Bring your own shampoo! Staff was friendly, and the breakfast was good. Big disadvantage is the parking situation, if you have a car. You park on the street (there was always a space in a...

FortyWinksinn, Manager at Forty Winks Inn, responded to this review

We are in an old, architecturally interesting part of the city where blocks are long and narrow and cars were not the order of the day, so garages are in short supply. Unfortunately I would have to sell Forty Winks to buy a piece of land in the area for parking :-) No shampoo, but there was soap, towels, a...

Stayed one night between flights.Nice rooms, close to good restaurants, the park and museum. lovely upstairs outside patio with beautiful flowers. Staff were friendly and helpful with our super early morning departure. We stayed in a room with two double beds, as we're traveling with kids, it was nicely decorated and bathroom clean and pleasant. A nice alternative to bigger...

Two nights stay over in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Forty Winks Inn was ideal for us. Centrally located so close to sights, museum, botanical gardens, restaurants, etc. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Just before the carnival we saw costumes being made and steel bands practising. Great directions to these from the Forty Winks staff. All the facilities we needed. Felt...

We wanted to stay somewhere that wasn't a big anonymous chain hotel but that wasn't grotty. I tried The Gingerbread House but that was full, this was my second choice, but in fact, we couldn't have been happier with Forty Winks. It's really charming. The people there could not be more cheerful, friendly, helpful. Owner Pam gave us precise instructions...

We loved having your very happy group. We appreciate when clients get that we are not trying to replicate a generic brand but have a brand of our own that focuses on giving the client the experience they came for, whatever that may be. I checked, and all our towel racks etc are firmly attached to the wall. There is...

Stayed for one night on my way from Guyana to Tobago. This is exactly the kind of place I look to stay at while traveling: a small privately run guest house with lots of charm and friendliness. Pam, the manager, helped with the booking as well as helping to arrange taxis. She is also very helpful with restaurant and activity...

This colourful little guesthouse is the perfect option to explore Port of Spain. Once you got rid of your luggage, everything is pretty much walking distance, there's a supermarket down the road, a couple of good restaurants near by and the park is just up the road. The port is about a 25 min walk away. If you have trouble...

We appreciate your taking the time to review. Indeed, most people sleep at night when it is very quiet, and are up and about during the day. Sorry your daytime sleep was interrupted. We were very busy that day with check-ins and check-outs and the resulting movement/conversations and urgent room prep would have been a bit more hectic than usual....
