“Was not impressed!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

Found the rooms smaller than expected. Business people stay here who cannot afford the big hotels - mainly men. Found it far too expensive for what was offered.
Won't be staying here again. Felt like a sardine. Had to find places to go as rooms too small to stay in, unless to sleep

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

Our rooms meet the minimum size standard for Trinidad and Tobago. Americans who are used to oversized and upsized products will find our rooms smaller than normal. Europeans have absolutely no problem, being used to operating in smaller spaces.
As many women as men stay here. We have I.T consultants, University Professors,Professionals on business, Company Executives, at least one of whom flies his own plane on business trips within the U.S.,housewives, simple folk. Retired people, families of all ages, young couples, honey mooners, We have a core of clients, salesmen, holiday makers, who return to us any time they visit Trinidad .
Included in our price, breakfast, taxes, wireless internet, itinerary planning and consierge services,, as much coffee and tea as you need, 24 hour front desk service (unheard of for a 5 room facility)daily room cleaning, business support. and lots of good cheer and personalised service.
We cannot be all things to all people. We deliver what we promise, and we did not promise an expansive facility, just a really sweet, comfortable place to stay when you are away from home.

The staff here are helpful and friendly, and a good breakfast is served each morning. The place is small and simple, but very well kept. You can walk from here to most parts of the city quite easily.

We were back in Trinidad after doing business in Tobago and wanted a place close to Port of Spain for a short while. Cleanliness is very important to me and I must say this place was close to perfect. To top it off breakfast was great. My only concern was parking in the street, but all went well. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend and stay at forty winks again! Great Job Guys! Please keep it up.

I stayed here with a large group from UK. The place is well-located, clean and has a lovely roof terrace to relax on. I stayed on after the rest of the group had left, and the staff not only made my stay comfortable and enjoyable, but also helped me plan day excursions round Trinidad. Highly recommended - I can't wait to come back!

Stayed for a longer period this summer and found a lovely little hotel that helps you all along the way. The location is central for both business and pleasure even though for other areas in town I would get a car as it makes life easier. Great stay, pleasurable people and an overall good time. Thanks!

Stayed at Forty Winks in a large group. Bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms were simply furnished and clean, breakfasts varied and generally tasty, staff mostly helpful and polite. One room's AC and the kitchen's cooker did break down during our stay, but both were promptly repaired.

The inn boasts a lovely roof-garden terrace, and is five minutes walk from some charming shops and eateries.
