Rosedon Hotel was built in 1906 as a large private home, and was transformed into a hotel in the 1950s when it was purchased by Mrs. Geoffrey Kitson. This low-key accommodation caters to many repeat guests, and is close to the heart of Hamilton. Despite its proximity to the town, the lush tropical gardens give one the feeling of visiting a country estate. Rosedon uniquely captures a timeless Bermuda, where the geraniums always seem to be in bloom and balmy breezes waft through the elegant, colonial-style rooms. Rooms have a timeless comfort that will please everyone from a dowager aunt to anyone else who likes floral patterns and chintz. Guests can use a free shuttle to visit nearby beaches and delight in the island’s iconic pink sand.
