In January we visited the Graycliff while in port from a cuise. After viewing their website and reading the cigar reviews, we made it a point to visit. While the interior of the property is beautiful, the exterior leaves much to be desired. Also, the bridges over the ponds, etc are wet and become a safwty hazard....I slipped and fell...

The Graycliff hotel is a hotel feel with a B&B size. The hotel was the 18th century residence of the Royal Governor to the Bahamas. We stayed in the Woods-Rogers Room, facing the ocean. Huge room, in which the king size bed looked small, large modern bath, and front porch just steps from the room. Because of the thick walls,...

The highlight of our two-week vacation at the Harborside Resort on Paradise Island, was a lunch and tour of the historic Graycliff Hotel. Pirates, we were told, built Graycliff and the dungeon now holds over 200,000 bottles of wine. Our lunch was excellent (I especially enjoyed the conch soup) and the tour guide excellent in showing us through the wine...

Built by a Georgian pirate in the early 18th Century this elegant plantation style house opposite Government House is both a small boutique hotel with elegant rooms and suites and the best restaurant in the Bahamas. Cool leafy gardens house two swimming pools. Excellent service and outstanding food backed by a world class wine cellar housed in the old pirate's...

If you are looking for a different experience in The Caribbean that doesn't include hordes of fanny packing tourists, scuffed hotel corridors that go on forever, standard boring faux Caribbean decor and mindless beach games then Graycliff could be for you ... It's not perfect but it feels like you've stopped in with your favourite aunt at her elegant and...

The Graycliff Hotel is definitely unique, and has a sort of shabby elegance. It's furnished with real antiques, which means some creaking here and there. The rugs are kind of worn, there's an air of elegance for sure, but it's not a bright and shiny new elegance by any means. We stayed in the main building, and our bed was...

This review is not for the hotel, but the adjacent cigar and chocolate factories. Two thumbs up for both. I toured the cigar factory, which is small but and enjoyable experience. I did a self-guided tour of the cigar rolling floor, as well as their storage facilities, then purchased some cigars. I would say the cigars were a little pricey,...

The location, just above old town, is great. The buildings are shabby chic and all rooms have character. The staff are very willing and the service is generally good. Breakfast, as mentioned before can be a bit of a battle to get what you want when you want it. The pizzeria, on a Friday, has happy hour, which is very...

We are staying at the Graycliff Hotel in Nassau for four days. It is an absolutely beautiful, well preserved old mansion. The gardens are extensive and there is a very well stocked wine cellar. Our suite on the second floor, The Baillou, is very spacious with three rooms, two of which open onto the veranda overlooking the harbour and lighthouse....
