- What's Included
Tucked blocks away from busy Bay Street and the cruise ships, this 14 room white- washed colonial hotel is a gem to enjoy. Spacious rooms more like a private residence feel. We spent most time in the hotel guests reception area and veranda. Pictures of British royalty abound throughout. Gastronomy aka fine cuisine is exceptional !!!! Courses served can be split up . Staff handling very professional !! Wine selection among the best in the world !!!! Take a tour down stairs through the cellar. The blue tiled pool in a lush tropical setting presents a blissful atmosphere. Great area for book reading . Check out the handrolled cigar factory and art gallery adjacent to the hotel. Relaxing lounge to smoke plus watch your own world class cigar be configured. Hard to believe Captain Graycliff would leave this tranquil surrounding to launch raids on merchant ships traversing the West Indies.
What a fabulous find. Our two nights at Graycliff Hotel were not enough. This is a uniquely beautiful hotel in a stunning garden setting in the heart of Nassau.The building is a 300 year old mansion with fascinating history. It has been restored to its original grandeur, with modern amenities, though it retains its original Bahamian charm. Our room was spacious and gorgeous, the dining room supposedly the best in Nassau. There are two pools in the beautiful, rambling and very private garden.The staff were friendly, professional and very helpful, especially Brenda at reception.
I was a tad put off from the moment we pulled up in the taxi - looked a little worn. Reception and staff were lovely. Our room was large but like everything else- tired looking and used. We spent time by the larger pool, it looked a little slimy with algae though immensely better than the small pool. It was green, top to bottom. The pool furniture as well was tired with the covers worn. We got the over all impression that while quaint this was not a place we would recommend or return to. We did have a pizza which was good, so did not try the on site formal restaurant for dinner. We did experience the piano music though....in our bedroom - directly above the piano...for HOURS. We had breakfast the next morning in the restaurant, my poached eggs were served barely warm tasting very much of vinegar with curdled lobster Bearnaise sauce. I rarely have anything bad to say when I review...this hotel got a AAA 4 diamond award last year. I have no idea how they pulled that off.
Stayed at Graycliff over the Hilton as I read many mixed reviews about the Hilton's poor service, the Chinese taking it over and repairs and regular maintenance were not being kept up.Graycliff ran a small discount and I decided to change to Graycliff.WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE. If you want to have a beautiful,sophisticated retreat to escape to after doing the tourist things, this is the the BEST,I traveled solo and was made to feel like part of the Graycliff family. The room has some antiques with upgraded modern conveniences. The staff is friendly, helping and go the extra mile to insure excursions and planned events dun smoothly.And then there is the food and drinks: all to die for. Five stars for butternut squash soup, Graycliff rum punch special and coconut soufflé. They certainly don't skimp on the hot rum sauce.A special thank you to Brenda, Derek, Sharina for your advice and ideas. Thank you for telling me about Harbour Island. So beautiful and relaxing.I come back to Nassau this is only place I'll stay.
On return form 16 days in Cuba, this place was fabulous. Two room suite-Tile Room. However, the restaurant-the best place on the island-was just that.I wish to be carefully sincere here; if you eat in average to good places, this may be a top choice, but is is extremely over priced for what you get. Remember, you are in Nassau, not NY or SF. You will be paying as if you are are at Chez Panisse in Berkeley or Donatello's in NY. Wife had the duck and I had the rack of lamb with Cesarj salad ( poor). Conch soup was good. The Foie Gras was very good, but here, again, all very expensive.Wine-have 250,000 bottles. All expensive by our California prices.The place exudes charm with a cigar roller doing his thing and a jazz singer playing the piano, and you are on vacation. Just remember we spent about $400 for our meal with one bottle of wine. I am sure many must be shocked at the prices After they sat down.
