Fodor's Review

Greenbank has been family-run for 58 years, and this is what Bermuda vacations were like back then: by way of entertainment you had a due-west pier with chairs to watch the sunset. A stay at Greenbank is a slow, relaxed experience. There's no beach here. Instead, you sit out on the harborfront lawn and take in the sun, or use the private dock for deepwater swimming. Or catch the ferry, just steps across the road, to explore the island. The waterside cottages, especially

Salt Winds and Sea Fan, have lovely harbor views. No two are alike—some were converted from old horse-and-buggy stations once used in transporting salt. All are clean and updated, with kitchens, private entrances, and shaded verandas.

Bermuda in March

We decided to take advantage of a great last minute flight deal and vacation in Bermuda in March 2012. We weren't expecting hot weather, but were very pleasantly surprised with the great week of warm sunny skies - perfect for our little golf getaway. We stayed at Greenbanks - what a pleasure! Our little 1 bedroom cottage had a tiny but comfortable kitchen with everything we needed to feel at home away from home. The room was spotless, the service

wonderful, and the use of the kitchen was great to make small meals to supplement restaurant meals. The Guesthouse is a hop 'n a skip from the Salt Kettle ferry station, enabling easy-peasy access to the town of Hamilton across the harbor. Sometimes we just hopped on the ferry to enjoy the ride and watch the sunset - gorgeous, and the ferry staff were so friendly. The Greenbanks is visited regularly by repeat guests,most elderly, but some mid-aged, and they made us feel right at home in the common room at the main house, while we caught up with news & chatted. The hosts at Greenbanks, Cindy & David, were delightful: welcoming, helpful, friendly, and being long-time residents, full of great recommendations. We were often told that Bermuda is too expensive to consider for a vacation, but this brief holiday was affordable and a joy. My only grief: the golfing is very expensive; but what the heck, we're on vacation, right?

A Little Piece of Heaven

I have stayed at Greenbank each July for the four (4) years and I cannot say enough about how wonderful a place it is to vacation. Every year when I return to Green bank it is like coming to a "home away from home". I even book for the next year's vacation before I leave to return to the US.

Live Like a Bermudian

One thing that is hard to figure out when shopping for lodging is what part of the island to stay. Well Greenbank has some distinct advantages. Not only are the prices reasonable and apartments pleasant... but it's located right by a ferry stop - great to get to Hamilton to transfer to all the other ferries... It's also a reasonable place that's actually on a body of water. Now, it's not by the beach, but if you rent a moped - that's not a problem

at all. After all the beach hopping and running around, Greenbank provided a home to come back to. Quiet and comfortable. Clean and stocked with everything you need. The innkeeper, Cindy, is your front desk. She has calling cards, maps, and supplies. She's also so pleasant and kind. If you're watching your spending but also want to live in a way that feels like a local... greenbank is just right. The services of a hotel, but use of your own apartment. It's nice. The dock they have is also furnished with chairs for good stargazing at night. Definitely good for budget watchers and a nice central location.

Hidden Gem

Peggy and I have stayed here 4 times our 13 years and it never loses it appeal. Cyndy and her husband run a a good show! Trouble is, through websites it shows nothing available in September, which can't be! 201 759 3696. Don't tell anyone..... Bill Woods
