The Fairmont Hamilton Princess
76 Pitts Bay Road, Bermuda, Bermuda


Located 600 miles east of North Carolina in the Atlantic Ocean, the resort stands 3 blocks from Hamilton City Center. Complimentary ferry service is available to the Fairmont Southampton Hotel`s golf, beach, spa and tennis facilities.

Resort Details

Dating to 1885, the hotel embodies Bermuda`s history as a vacation destination-all chronicled on a wall with photographs and notes-and continues to serve as the island`s `Grande Dame` social center, located on 400 yards of harborfront. The hotel`s storied history includes service during World War II as the Allies` Atlantic intelligence center, housing 1,200 agents known as the Princess Spies.

Restaurants, Lounges & Bars

Harbor-side alfresco dining is featured at Harley`s Restaurant and Terrace, where prime aged beef and breakfast buffets are available. Afternoon tea is served at Heritage Court, while unique butler service is available for candlelight dinners on Guestroom terraces.

Pools & Spas

Although not on a beach, the Fairmont features 2 90-by-35-foot pools, 1 freshwater and the other saltwater, surrounded by terra-cotta sun-decks furnished with lounge chairs. The fitness center offers state of the art fitness equipment, and 2 saunas. The adjoining Inverurie Day Spa showcases such indulgences as the sun lover facial, an oxygenating treatment that uses handmade stone crop masques and licorice serum to tone and heal sun-damaged skin. The bed of roses facial melds hand-crushed petals from 2 dozen Bulgarian roses, rosehips and carrot vitamin treatments to exfoliate, treat and balance.

Entertainment & Activities

A lighted concrete path with teak deck chairs runs 400 yards along the harbor. From here, guests take a complimentary shuttle boat 25 minutes across the harbor to a companion resort, the Fairmont Southampton, where they enjoy access to a private beach; an 18-hole, par-3 executive golf course; a 30,000-square-foot health-and-beauty spa featuring a large indoor pool and spacious spa tubs on ocean-view sun-decks; and 9 restaurants, including 1 in a house dating from the mid-17th century.

Complimentary Ferry Service: Private Complimentary Ferry Service to The Fairmont Southampton Princess and Dockyard - Summer season only. (Weather permitting/schedule varies according to season).

Great staff with a great in-town location. The two new restaurants (1609 and Marcus) are a nice addition. The new sleek contemporary Crown and Anchor lobby restaurant/bar area could be improved, it lacks personality. I miss the old lobby bar area, it was a perfect place for tea. Can't wait for the renovations to be finished.

I recently stayed at the Hamilton Princess Hotel. The room I had was a suite and had been recently renovated and was quite nice.

The hotel is under construction, but if you want attentive service, high quality food, beautiful view and atmosphere, there is no other option. I stayed here on business in May and Fairmont understands business clients and is consistent in their approach of outstanding service.

In bermuda, being away is tough- car rentals don't exist, mopeds are dangerous and cabs get expensive fast. Being close to town allows you to explore.

The Hamilton Princess is a beautiful looking hotel. It has supposedly been recently refurbished, at least partially.

There was no balcony and one window only opened about 4 inches. The other didn't open at all. Al... Read more

We visited back in May; part business trip, part vacation. I think this property rests on its history too much. The amenities and service did not match the 5-star rating. The not so good: 1) We were not impressed with check in. We had a welcome reception scheduled for 7:30 pm our first night. Many of our rooms were not ready until well after check in, so much so that the hotel was offering a "changing area," so we could prepare for the cocktail reception.

We have been to the island 37 times since 1981; probably 30 times at The Princess.

We booked the hotel months in advance. The hotel didn't tell us it was hosting their VIPs that weekend. Well we paid thousands of dollars and were treated like third class citizens. The music was so loud it was vibrating the beds. There were broken wine glasses on the walls and sidewalks as we walked to the pool. We had to wait over an hour for drinks poolside. The place was a disaster. The art work is fantastic but a hotel of this caliber should not have these sorts of issues.

Fairmont has a problem: they assume "traditional" and "classic" decor means no need to renovate. Their properties are typically well-located, expansive, and generally provide decent service.

This one was no exception (in fact, renovations were ongoing). The front desk staff was friendly -- four stars on that. The rooms likely ... Read more

The Fairmont Princess is an average hotel. It is a pretty property and the location can't be beat. Our room number was 148. Just to get to our room involved a few doors that are locked - at one point during our vacation, I was locked within a small corridor until a bellboy came by. No one told me I had to wave my hand in front of a sensor to open the door. The corridor to our room smelled musty and upon opening the door to our room, we were met by a jolt of similar musty smelling odors. The air ... Read more

The hotel is beatiful and the both Peter and George from the gold club truly tries to make you feel special.

We stayed there for three nights, and the staff service is outstanding and they help us to contact the tour we arranged locally... The Resturant and pool facility is also very amazing which we enjoyed a lot.

We think for a USD 600 night oceanfront room, this is a bit expensive..

This year the hotel was undergoing some extensive refurbishments which meant a lengthy detour to reach the allotted room. Once in the rooms everything is good and as one would expect, but the corridors and the reception areas are terribly tired and largely in need of refurbishment. That said, the staff are pleasant and helpful, the food is generous and delicious and you do get that slightly pampered feeling that Fairmont do so well - I will return, hopefully to a finished project next year.

We honeymooned at this hotel 36 years ago and had not returned. This stay surpassed our most generous imaginings. The staff and facilities were first rate. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating, what one always hopes on a vacation, but sometimes doesn't happen. The hotel has been magnificently renovated and has a first-class restaurant, Marcus. We enjoyed walking to shops, the harbor, restaurants, all walking distance. One week after Hurricane Nicole, the island looked pristine and perfect. Br... Read more

I have to confess that before i traveled i was very confused by the different opinions that people on trip advisor had of this hotel and particular the room types. The main thing to remember is that all the areas bar the Bermudiana Wing has now been renovated. We arrived late in the evening and just before Hurricane Nicole hit the island which made everything very quite. The hotel is large but we like that as it allows us privacy. The room we had was a garden view standard room in the poinci... Read more

Very, very big smart , sprawling and recently renovated top scale hotel in the middle of Hamilton . It's about to host the Americas cup so the money has rolled in. If you've stayed in a mid to upper American chain, then you will know what to expect and will not be disappointed. It is very expensive and I was expecting perhaps a little more exclusivity, charm and regality than what was on offer for the price. The bar prices were astronomical if you were brave enough to order top shelf spirits . L... Read more

We had an excellent experience at the Bermuda Fairmont Beach Club. Great location, first class hotel and everyone was so friendly. We loved Bermuda and loved our hotel. The concierge was very helpful guiding us on things to do, making reservations for dinners, giving directions, etc. Would definitely stay again. First Class!

Beautiful spot, outstanding service and impeccable facilities! We celebrated our 25rh anniversary with friends and it was a perfect weekend. Cannot wait to go back! Their private beach was breathtaking and relaxing.

The Hamilton Princess is NOT run like the Southampton Hotel that is under management of Fairmont; this is evident from the time you arrive until the time you leave. Although the Hamilton Princess is certainly closer to the stores and businesses, it is not worth staying there when compared to the lack of services and attention shown by the staff.

Excellent facility - great room, comfortable bed and good shower. Dining experience was good. Entertainment provided by the Big Chill was memorable. Exhale is an excellent spa facility and the staff in the hotel were friendly and attentive.

I've stayed at the Princess several times a year for a while. Loved it. But lately not so much. Overcharging for services that needed rectifying. The latest wrinkle when I emailed the hotel for a reservation as I had before and was told the lowest price room available was $700+ per night. That was twice former charges. Out of curiosity, I looked at for the date and reserved a room for $400+ per night. (The + is all the taxes and fees yet add on.) the final price I paid was still abou... Read more

This classic island hotel is located on the edge of the downtown area of Hamilton and also right on the water. Great views and easy to get to from Hamilton. Still a 30+ minute ride on twisty roads to get to the airport but that's Bermuda. They have done substantial remodeling over the last couple of years and the public areas and at least some of the rooms (I haven't been in all of them) are now up to a high standard. Of course the prices are absurd but this is Bermuda and everything here seem... Read more

I stayed here because I'm a President's Club member and it was convenient to all of my meetings. However, it's clear they have no desire to cater to business travelers save the WiFi, which was excellent for a large property. My room was a 7 minute (maze) walk just to get to the lobby. There is no convenience store in which to buy sundries. And my room service breakfast was 25 minutes late before I had to cancel it because I was going to be late for my first meeting. Guest services didn't seem... Read more

Most friendly staff I have ever encountered. Beautiful property close enough to walk to great shopping and restaurants( Portofinos, The Lobster Pot, Devils Isle). Weather, even now, was in the 70's and swimming was wonderful. One major drawback was the Beach Club. What is NOT ADVERTISED is that the full beach club experience is not offered. It is apparently seasonal. Therefore; you can get a free taxi to the beach club, and there is an attendant there to help out, towels, kayaks and paddleboard... Read more

I'm sure it's also great during peak, but for a November, this place was perfect. Comfortable, great service, good restaurants with terrific bartenders, the whole thing! And the gym and adults only pool are just right. I mean beautiful and just right. I miss it already.

Expensive but worth it. Very nice hotel. Had a decent spa that my wife enjoyed. My favorite part was the infinity pool looking out over the harbor and the ocean. Great place to sunbathe and especially watch the sunset from. Marcus restaurant on site is also very good. Rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Hotel also provided free shuttle bus over to a private beach with free chairs and umbrellas which was awesome.

Been travelling to Bermuda for almost 30 years. Absolutely love everything about the Island and the people. Have been staying at the Hamilton Princess for the last 16 years. It must be added to everyone's bucket list! The Princess has undergone major renovations and is one of the most exquisite properties on the Island. It is a beautiful harbor front property.

This was the third time i have stayed at this hotel. This was the first time I came to Bermuda ahead of a business trip and got some free time (so more time to enjoy the hotel as well!) The hotel is really lovely and a great location. everyone is really friendly and the pools outside are amazing. The restaurant was expensive, but good food. Overtime i have stayed here they always put me in the Bermudiana wing; which is basically the furtherest wing from civilisation which is annoying. So request... Read more

Ohhh Amezing!!!! I run away from Boston on winter!! Hamilton Princess & Beach Club offers scuba-diving lessons, rents Jet Skis and kayaks, and arranges scuba diving, snorkeling, and parasailing excursions. Guests have direct access to a private beach, and a shuttle to and from is complimentary.

I ate at a restaurant called Bruchee down the street from Fairmont the prices were reasonable & food was very good the service was excellent The staff at Fairmont was very friendly and when we asked a question was helpful The only problem is have was with my bill making sure it was accurate because a second party was involved in taking care of Bill
