Fort Young Hotel, Roseau, Dominica

Rating : 3stryl
Location : Roseau, Dominica

Built around the walls of the old 18th century fort, many of the original features have been retained in the public areas of the Fort Young Hotel, Roseau, Dominica. However, modern facilities have now been added, making it a little oasis of comfort after a day of exploration. The main international airport Melville Hall is on the north east coast of the island, and is a scenic 65 minutes drive across the island to Roseau. The smaller and lesser used airport at Canefield is on the south west coast of the island, and is under 20 minutes driving distance to Roseau.

Old World Charm, modern amenities and open vistas of the Caribbean Sea, marry harmoniously in this historic building.
