I stayed at Fort Young Hotel for one week and I have to say that the customer service provided is excellent! Kudos to all the staff, especially Esther, Serge and Jervon! My cleaning lady was also great! Would highly recommend.

I rated this average only because of the initial room we were placed in. I would have rated it very good if we had been placed in our second room from the first night. However, maybe in comparison to other accommodation options within Roseau, it should be a very good or excellent rating, but I didn't stay anywhere else. Firstly,... More

The hotel was in a great location right on the water and near town. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because the facilities were not updated and the cruise ships that blocked all views the few days they came in. When the ships came in the town was a bustling, lively place with music... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Fort Young Hotel. My husband had find memories of this hotel growing up in Dominica. The accommodations were good, drinks were GREAT, food was good. My only complaint were the cats that roamed the bars and restaurants while you were eating and drinking. I HATE cats, really made our dining and relaxing time unpleasant. They... More

We did not stay at the hotel we came and hung out at the hotel happy hour. Its the nicest place in Roseau, but its not really luxury. It's an old colonial fort.
