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
My husband, teenage son and I stayed here for four nights in April while I celebrated a milestone birthday. I booked it last fall during the pink sale and it was an amazing value for a one bedroom suite with a harbor view. We arrived before check-in time but our suite was ready. First impressions were not great as you walk up the stairs and through the outside hallways to get to your suite. It reminded me of a cheap motel in need of a serious paint job. Once at our suite we were thrilled though. View of the harbor and pool with a large furnished balcony, large bedroom and living room with a pullout couch, an updated kitchen with all the basics we needed, and 1.5 bathrooms. The pool and hot tub were nice although predictably dominated by young kids for a lot of the day. We ate at Beau Rivage twice - I liked it best for dinner with a view of the sunset and excellent service. We did not eat at the other restaurants and we are not golfers so I can't comment on those facilities. The location was great. One of the best amenities is the free water shuttle that gets you to Hamilton in five minutes. It doesn't run all day, but it's only a $12 cab ride to get home. The pink line ferry and a bus(either the 7 or 8) is close by - we took a nice ride out to Southhampton. There is also a shuttle that will take you to the beach at Coco Reef. Absolutely gorgeous stretch of beach right next to Elbow Beach. Beautiful walk. There are also shuttles to a few local restaurants. We did have an issue with twice having a long wait for the shuttles to pick us back up. I'm not sure if they were understaffed, but we waited about 30 minutes both times. The drivers were so nice we couldn't fault them. Overall we had a wonderful time. We've been to Bermuda several times but this was s new location for us, and we found it very handy to get everywhere we needed to go. Highly recommended!

Our first trip to Bermuda was perfect thanks to the staff at Newstead Belmont Hills. The hotel is mid island so a great location to see everything. We brought the extended family and stayed in 2 1-bedroom 'suites' which were equivalent to the 1-bedroom condos we're accustomed to renting through RCI Timeshares. Every room has a view of Hamilton and the harbor. The sunsets were amazing. There's not a lot within walking distance but the hotel provides a free shuttle service to the beach (at the Coco Reef Hotel located right next door to the Elbow Beach resort); their own golf course and 2 of their 4 restaurants. There are 2 restaurants on site as well as the pool bar. They also a free water shuttle to Hamilton which took about 5 minutes. The service was excellent and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We used all of their amenities -- with the exception of the spa -- and I would give 4.5 stars on everything. The hotel couldn't accommodate our request to assign the 2 rooms in close proximity so the rooms were in different buildings. The room in the 700 building was located closer to the road and you could hear the scooters accelerate on the straightway in front of the hotel but this is typical of other places on the island -- everything is close to the road so good luck to the reviewer who complained about hearing traffic. I don't know that any hotel is without the traffic -- maybe request a room away from the road. If you plan to go during the off season, know that the shuttle services are limited but the docks and bus stops for public transportation is close by. Also, there are plenty of taxis which was actually our preferred choice. Most of the shuttle drivers and taxi drivers were very courteous and pointed out local sites which was like having our own personal tour guides. There were 7 in our party and it was less expensive for us to take a taxi from Hamilton to the door of the hotel. The bus and water shuttle are close but a Day Pass would be needed to reduce the cost and we found the hotel shuttles to get us where we needed. Breakfast at Beau Rivage was a bit pricey but the quality service and food was worth it. It's an island so you're going to pay more and it was still less expensive than what we've paid for breakfast at Disney. We traveled with young children and shied away from dinner at Beau Rivage and Blu but Sanzibar and Divots were perfect for kids or parties who wanted more casual options. We are already talking about our return trip to Newstead Bellmont Hills.

We loved our stay at Newstead Belmont Hills and can't wait to come back. The shuttle to and from Hamilton is a huge asset for the hotel. Lovely infinity pool and the rooms were very spacious with beautiful views.

Before I go any further I would like to say if there were half points on scoring I would offer this hotel a 3.5, mainly because of my 1 big reservation - the noise factor. However, the hotel facilities itself do deserve a 4 star. We stayed 5 nights in April and after having spent 5 days in another hotel in a different part of the island - Somerset, I was immediately gutted when I entered the Newstead bedroom. I had been transported from peace and solitude to the sound of morning and afternoon work traffic. We stayed on the 5th floor. In fairness after my initial upset regarding the noise factor by the 4th day it was less irritating (however it still did sound like, in particular the mopeds, that they were right outside my door, which in fairness they were on a very busy road). There is no soundproofing. My husband in his fair mindedness pointed out that the Newstead Hotel had good points that the other hotel did not. For instance the hotel had 2 restaurants open on site and 2 others available at the golf club resort just a 5 minute drive away, which the hotel provides a courtesy taxi service to. We went to one of the golf resort restaurants - (Divots the less formal one) and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Other positive point is that the rooms have a lovely view of Hamilton and you can leisurely watch the waterway ferries pass by. Sadly the sun did not reach our balcony at all, which was another one of my disappointments, I think quite a few of the sea view balconies had the same problem with the location and canopy roof, unless you could afford one of the rooms with the extended balcony area. My 3rd issue is more of a frustration. The ferry shuttle did not operate very often over to Hamilton (the last one in the morning is 11.50 am and the first one back is 5.20 pm so you really end up paying for a taxi about $13 a time to get back to the hotel. So I guess the question you may ask is whether I would choose to go back again, with regret, I think I would take the gamble on another hotel mainly because I would not pay good money and time to travel all the way from the quiet Isle of Man to wake up to loud traffic noise in Bermuda.

My wife, 12 y/o daughter and I just returned on April 1 (2018) from six days in Bermuda. We stayed at the Newstead in a junior suite that was very spacious, and well maintained. The suite was essentially a one bedroom apartment, and even offered a powder room off the entrance, as well as a full bath with shower and bathtub. The suite included all kitchen appliances -- dishwasher, microwave and oven -- as well as dishes and utensils. There were also two flat screen TVs mounted on the bedroom and living room walls, very strong (unsecured) WIFI and a large balcony facing the bay across from the City of Hamilton. In short, a super facility. (The only minor issue, which cropped up on our last night, was a very unpleasant smell in our room from the hotelâ€™s restaurant, which was directly below us. I suggest you avoid the middle of building 6 if you can.) There are 74 rooms in total in the hotel, which features a small, heated pool (about 82 degrees Fahrenheit) and a nice, Jacuzzi-style hot tub.Â There is a pool bar, but it operates only during the tourist season. There are two restaurants, the upscale and quite pricey Beau Rivage, and the somewhat less pricey and casual eatery, Sansibar. All food is prepared in the Beau Rivage, so the primary differences are the ambience, the menu and the price. With respect to price, whether in the hotel or out, dining in Bermuda is not for those on a budget. All taxes are included in the total, but an automatic 17% gratuity is added to the bill, even for take-out. Lunch for the three of us, even at pubs, was usually about $100. Breakfast was about $60-75. If you wish to avoid eating out, youâ€™ll need to go grocery shopping, but prices are significantly higher than what one would find in the U.S. Unfortunately, youâ€™ll have to go into Hamilton to shop (the Marketplace grocery store is just a couple of blocks from the ferry dock), walk about 20 minutes (one way) from the hotel or take a taxi. There is no place nearby to purchase food, or even bottled water; the hotel does not have an in-house shop for guests. There is good news, however: water from the tap is safe to drink. The hotel offers free shuttle service to and from the airport, to/from the golf course (where you can eat at one of two restaurants: the casual and lower-priced Divots, or the upscale and quite pricey Blu), the Coco Reef Beach Resort (which also has a restaurant and bar). The shuttle service to the golf course and beach is free, but when the hotel is full, you may have to wait a while for a ride since there is only one shuttle van and driver on duty, even in high season.Â As for the airport shuttle, our driver met us at the arrivals lounge in the airport and our return was similarly free and easy.Â Given the approximately $40 taxi fare between the airport and the Newstead, this is no small item. During winter season (December 1 to April 1, certain places are closed, including sites at the Dockyards). There are two schedules â€“ winter and in-season -- for the commercial ferries around the island, so make sure youâ€™re looking at the right one lest you miss your ride. The hotel pool bar is also closed during the off-season. The Newstead provides a free hotel ferry across the water into Hamilton, but nothing during the middle of the day, a limited, morning schedule on Saturdays, and no ferry at all on Sundays and public holidays (review the list of holidays before coming to Bermuda because the town and almost all establishments shut down).Â The hotel ferry also does not run if winds are high and there are substantial waves. You can purchase a public transportation pass for varying lengths of time that lets you ride all commercial ferries and buses.Â This may be an option if you want to go to the Dockyards or St. Georges since taxi fare can run up to $40 one way. The hotel also offers spa services, although my wife and daughter did not partake once they checked out the price. Complimentary golf rounds are available, as well, but there is a $50 charge to rent clubs and a mandatory $35 charge per person for the required golf cart. The Newstead has a small gym with treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bikes, as well as weight equipment. In addition, there are two tennis courts available for use by guests. The hotel will provide tennis racquets and balls free of charge. Overall, a trip to Bermuda offers a good chance of pace. It is a very tidy, well maintained, and pretty place, with great landscaping, lot of flowers, greenery and palm trees, not to mention very pretty views off the water. Locals are very friendly, and very well informed. Every person we met was able to provide helpful information about the island, its people, architecture and so on. That said, Bermuda is not for people looking for a bargainâ€¦prices at most eateries are about 1/3 higher, on average, than in Washington, DC.Â This may explain why the average per-capita income in Bermuda is very high; one of the highest â€“ if not the highest -- in the world, in fact.Â Poverty, if it exists, is certainly not widespread.Â This may explain why the place has a very low crime rate.Â This is a safe place for tourists.Â You may leave here with much less money than when you arrived, but it wonâ€™t be because it was stolen. We were pleased to find that U.S. currency is accepted everywhere, along with the Bermuda Dollar.Â Other currencies, even the British Pound, are not accepted in Bermuda.Â However, apart from the one at the airport, we were unable to find an ATM that dispensed anything other than Bermuda currency, so either bring plenty of cash, get some at the ATM in the airport, or use your credit card whenever possible.
