The guys on the reception were nice but the continental breakfast on the next day was like a bad joke. 2 slice of bread for two people a lil jam not enough for two breads. (One of us male and 2m hight) and the women who are working there unbelievable unmotivated. The room is an adventure and more or less...

The adage, "Location, location, location" is perfect for this hotel. And the reason I recommend it! Nothing in the room stands out for me as exceptional. Big bed, pull out couch, A/C, ceiling fan, hot water, kettle, fridge. All nice things for two weary travellers to have in a hot and humid country. But the service was great. Everyone was...

The Garraway Hotel isn’t as nice as the management photos indicate. It’s an older building. The bar inside extends outside and they sell beer and sodas on the patio. Pay for a drink and you get wifi. Signal is awful though and there are a ton of people trying to use it. Restrooms are yucky. You have a street view...

We always appreciate comments which are balanced and constructive. Wifi signal can be low especially when hundreds of people are trying to get on as it is free which is a service provided to clients by the hotel.

Facilities are basic and run-down as others are saying - for the cost per night you would think they can spend some money fixing it up! Shana on reception was extremely helpful when we were stranded after missing our cruise ship. Wi-fi worked but there were no iPhone charging options. The food in the restaurant was below average and the...

At the time you arrived Dominica had just experienced one of its worst tropical storms and the hotel remained open for business despite the problem you describe just to accommodate visitors given the damage sustained from Tropical Storm 'Erica'. We apologize for the inconvenience but this has to be considered in the context of what the country was going through...

I stayed in the Garraway for four nights, because the organizers of a workshop put all participants there. I had no influence on this choice. After reading some of the reviews, I contacted the hotel to enquire about the availability of some amenities and services of importance to me. I never got an answer. My first impression of the 4th...

Working in Dominica for quite some time has resulted in many nights spent at the Garraway hotel on the waterfront facing the cruise ship dock. The house was built in 1996 and has been in a dire need for complete overhaul for many years. The food at the hotel restaurant is of average quality and more authentic local restaurants can...
