Greenbank Guest House is a family-run waterside property in Salt Kettle, a small picturesque peninsula in Paget Parish once home to mariners and merchants. Friendly hosts Cindy and David Ashton live on the property and can provide their guests with a wealth of local knowledge and helpful assistance.
All 11 accommodations are unique. Apartments and cottages are dotted around the landscaped grounds. They all have kitchens or kitchenettes, a private veranda with a view of the water or gardens. The larger apartments can accommodate up to 4 persons.
The main house is over 200 years old and features two double rooms. As these have no kitchen facilities, guests staying here are served continental breakfast. There’s also a guest lounge here with TV, games, books, and tourist brochures.
Visitors can stock up on provisions at Lindo’s, one of the better supermarkets in Bermuda. It’s around ¾ mile from Greenbank. Restaurants in Paget include the Paraquet (good for a cheap breakfast), Mickey’s (a beachside restaurant at Elbow Beach), and the Fourways Inn (expensive but great).
The guest house is on the northern shore of Paget. There are no beaches here. However, Greenbank does have its own private dock where guests can take a dip in Hamilton Harbour or just sit and watch the sunset. Elbow Beach is the closest public beach and is situated on the southern shore of the parish, around 1½ miles from the property.
Pomander Gate Tennis Club is at the eastern end of Paget. The club is private but visitors to the island can join and play as a temporary member. The Botanical Gardens is also nearby and features acres of landscaped gardens, the official residence of the Premier, and an interesting art gallery.
Salt Kettle Ferry is just a few yards from the guest house. Ferries on the pink route offer a scenic trip across the harbour to Hamilton and its multitude of shops, restaurants, and attractions. Buses on route 8 travel between Dockyard and Hamilton. The bus stop on Middle Road can be reached on foot in around 10 minutes. Buy a transportation pass to save money on bus and ferry fares.
