Newstead Belmont Hills in Paget, Bermuda
When Newstead Belmont Hills opened in 2008, it was the first new resort development in Bermuda in 35 years. Modern rooms with hardwood floors and mosaic-tiled marble bathrooms enjoy views of Hamilton Harbor, where complimentary water taxis take guests to destinations across the island. Golfers won’t want to miss tee time at the Algie M. Pulley, Jr.-designed 18-hole course overlooking the Great Sound – a complimentary round is included with each stay.
Get your blood flowing with an early morning tennis match. Lounge the day away at the edge of the harborside infinity pool. Take a quick jaunt over to a pink-sand beach and scour the shore for shells. Book a corner table for dinner, feeling the Bermudan breeze bid farewell to the sun’s last rays. Feast on fresh sashimi – unangi, ebi, ikura, maguro and salmon caviar – paired with a glass of chilled chardonnay.

Reviews for Newstead Belmont Hills
We have stayed here the last 2 years. The staff is so friendly and it is a perfect getaway for a couple or family. What makes it so special is that there is a Ferry that takes you back and forth to Hamilton every day and there is a casual and a formal restaurant right on the property. This hotel is accessible from the outside so you do not have to go through the lobby every time you enter. You can also park your rental scooter in a covered garage and they also have a nice pool and tennis courts. If you want to be close to amenities and Hamilton, Paget is where you want to be. They have a courtesy shuttle to and from the airport (normally a 40 dollar ride each way) and they will take you to the nearby beach via the hotel shuttle. Golf is complementary at the course and if you are really looking to celebrate, the restaurant Blu is absolutely magnificent. This hotel is well worth the money.

Location: We stayed between March 10 and 17, 2017. It was our second time in Bermuda. The location is across the harbour from Hamilton and the resort provided a free fast ferry service. We also used taxis to get to Hamilton as the ferry is limited during the off season. These cost about $10, but we gave a 20-30% tip. The tip was based upon how entertaining the driver was. The Resort: The resort itself had a great infinity pool and hottub. There was also table tennis and regular tennis. The resort includes a golf course, but we are not golfers. The fitness center was basic with a few cardio machines and assorted weight machines. There was a free shuttle to a great local beach. I did not go, but my wife and son really enjoyed the experience. The Room: We were travelling with our 13 year old son and booked a one bedroom suite. It was nicely equipped and comfortable. The living room did have a door to the unit next door. This was my only complaint about the unit. The noise transfer was terrible. Our son, who was sleeping on the couch, was woken multiple times. Other Reviews I did want to respond to the review by Alyssa D. Many of her complaints were not consistent with our experience. The airport transfers did cost us a little more than her, but were well worth it given the entertainment value of most taxi drivers. I did not expect to get this for "Free". We also arrived before our room was ready and had the Sunday Brunch. It is a little expencive, but really worth the cost. I agree with the hot water comment. We had a nice jacuzzi tub, but not enough hot water to really enjoy it. We showed instead. I cannot disagree with her more about the staff and servers. They were not up to normal North America standards of service, but this is the "islands" mentality. You really have to go with the flow or go to Vegas. Summary: I gave this resort a solid 5 Star rating because it was everything it promised to be. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. The resort had a very relaxing feel to it and everyone was friendly. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Newstead Belmont Hills surpassed our expectations! Our one-bedroom suite with full kitchen was spacious and comfortable for our family (two adults and two teens). The extra bathroom was an unexpected surprise giving everyone space and privacy. The kitchen had everything we needed and made it stress free for our family as one of our children has food allergies. (Also helped keep food costs in check.) The view from our very large balcony was gorgeous. We travel on a regular basis and our room at Newstead was the cleanest we have ever enjoyed. The staff are professional and treated us very well. The shuttle picked us up and dropped us off at the airport free of charge. Kyle was waiting for us on the day of our arrival despite our flight being delayed and late. We could not have had a better welcome for our first trip to Bermuda. Another big plus about staying at Newstead - everything is so accessible! The resort water shuttle is free of charge and takes only about 5 minutes to whisk you across to Hamilton. Hamilton is really the jumping off point for so much. You can jump on other ferries, buses (the central bus terminal is a five minute walk from the ferry dock), the grocery store (again, a five minute walk), shopping, restaurants, coffee, the Island Tour Centre (at the ferry dock), the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club (if you fancy a sail, touch base with Nathan Bailey their Sailing Director and top notch guy!), and more. There is also another ferry that comes to the edge of the Newstead property making getting around all the more easy. Taxis and transportation can be pricey so we found the ease of access of staying at Newstead to be a bonus. We went tip-to-tip during our week on Bermuda and can't imagine a more convenient location than Newstead. We also bought four day ferry/bus passes and they made getting around very easy and convenient. Just hop on and off all the buses and ferries you want to explore the island. Some highlights from our week: hiking the railway trail from Paget to Gibbs Lighthouse (gorgeous hike!); the view from the top of Gibbs Lighthouse; body surfing at Horseshoe Bay beach; exploring the south shore beaches; Crystal Caves; cliff jumping at the Blue Hole in Tom Moore's Jungle; sailing with the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club (thanks Nicole, Nathan and Roget!); the Dockyard and National Museum of Bermuda (including dolphins!); watching America's Cup boats practice; exploring Hamilton; and nightly swims in Newstead's beautiful infinity pool. We also went out on a glass bottom boat tour. Our first choice (Bermuda Reef Explorer/Turtle Cove tour) was unavailable so we went with another company. Although interesting, we were a bit disappointed and wished we had been able to get out with our first choice. Newstead Belmont Hills is a terrific resort and their professional staff made us feel very welcome. It is a terrific home-away-from-home that made for an amazing family holiday!

At first glance, this is a beautiful property with views and an infinity pool overlooking Hamilton Harbor and spacious suites. However, looks can be deceiving and overall the hotel is really catered towards the owners and not the guests. Here are the primary factors contributing to my 2-star rating: - Beware of airport shuttle fees: The hotel offers free airport shuttle service, but only if you are an owner or book directly through their website. If you book through a 3rd party website like I did it will end up being an $80 mistake ($40 each way). I am not sure why this amenity is not available to all guests. - Rude restaurant staff: The restaurants seem to be catered more towards business travelers and golfers. Since we were unable to check in upon arrival (which is another issue I had with the hotel) we went down to the Sunday brunch buffet dressed in the clothes we were wearing on the airplane. We were not greeted and after at least 5 minutes of waiting decided to seat ourselves to subsequently receive some of the worst service I have ever experienced. The wait staff intentionally ignored us, helping other tables but walking right past us with a pitcher of water and not filling up our glasses (which is even more of a burn since we were dehydrated from flying). Later during our stay, we had a similarly bad experience at another hotel restaurant where the staff was pompous. Apparently if you aren't wearing a blazer, you might as well not bother to go as your money is inferior to them. - Lack of on-site amenities: Despite a beautiful view, the property does not have much to offer other than the pool and 2 restaurants (the 3rd restaurant and golf course is located 5 minutes away by shuttle). This, coupled with the fact that the ferry to Hamilton has very minimal hours (does not even run on Sundays), you really need to rely on getting around via taxi or renting a scooter to be able to explore and enjoy the island. - Minimal hot water: I would expect a nice hotel to not run out of hot water, but sadly each day we only had enough hot water to last for the first person showering. Overall, this is a nice property if you plan to spend a lot of time in your room and cook your own meals. For us, we were looking for a romantic resort to use as a base to explore Bermuda and for that this did not meet the mark. We also continually felt diminished by the lack of customer service towards hotel guests which ultimately left a bad taste in my mouth.
My sister, fiance and I shared a suite at this hotel. I was a little wary, but it was perfect! The suite was spacious, with two bathrooms and a separate bedroom, so we all had privacy. The hotel has a nice layout, the infinite pool gives an unbelievable view of the harbour. The staff is very friendly. The free shuttle to and from Hamilton allows easy access to the shops as well as the bus depot if you want to explore the islands. I would definitely stay here again!
