I have not stayed here, but we walked up the hill and took a picture of the cottage. Apparently you used to be able to go inside and tour on Wednesdays from noon to 5 pm, but that was no longer possible at the time we were there because it is rented to someone. It is a National Trust property which was built c. 1705 by a reformed pirate.
Up to two people per room can stay here for $100 to $150/night

When I visited Bermuda in 1963, I stayed in a hotel called the St. George's Hotel - it was relatively inexpensive at only about $20/night. It didn't have an ensuite bathroom - just a sink in the room. And we had twin beds.
At some point, this hotel burned down. The man at Ft. St. Catherine's said that five fires mysteriously started at the same time. Now these condo units have been built on this location. I have not stayed here, but they look nice.
There's almost no place to stay in the St. Georges area except for these condos, which are rarely available for rent. If you want to go down to town, you can call a mini-van which costs about $3 per trip.
There are three outdoor pools (one heated) and three tennis courts. The private beach and beach club are a mile away. The beach club is open seasonally and offers a restaurant, beach chairs, and water-sports equipment rental. The resort also offers on-site moped rentals. Griffins is the resort's on-site restaurant and bar and there is a mandatory $50/person (over 18) charge for the restaurant when you rent these condos. This can be used as a credit toward food & beverage purchases throughout the week. Each unit is air-conditioned and has ceiling fans and cable television. 1 & 2BR units have stereo with CD player. Laundry services are available on site. There is a housekeeping charge of $9/per person twice a week.
Hotel units: Max 2 people have 1 bath and 1 queen bed.
1BR units: Max 4 people have 1 bath, 1 king bed and 1 sleep sofa.
2BR units: Max 6 people have 2 baths, 1 king bed, 2 twin beds and 1 sleep sofa.
In 1963, I wanted a hotel that was close to the airport and also close to where my husband's ship was anchored. So I picked the St. George's Hotel which was out by Ft. St. Catherine up on the hill outside of St. Geroges. This was not a luxury hotel - IIRC it had twin beds and a sink in the room. The picture of Bob in the hotel room is underexposed (no automatic exposure cameras then, and my camera didn't have a flash plus the film was only about ASA 25) so it is very grainy when digitized
There were great views over the town, and it was quite close to Ft. St. Catherine and so very convenient to get there. It was however, a couple of miles from town.
Albert Gleizes (1881-1953) was a French cubist painter who spent the winter of 1917 at the former St. George's Hotel (where we stayed) in the Town of St. George, Bermuda. There he completed a number of Bermuda paintings including his "Portrait of Juliette" and "Paysage des Bermudes". Also, his view of Government House in Pembroke Parish is very interesting.
I have a 1961 travel book which says: "St. George Hotel...On Rose Hill overlooking town. Has special Family Plan and children's playground. Indoor salt water swimming pool, golf course, beach facilities, dancing. Accommodates 200. Rates $11 to $16 MAP"
In the 70s (according to locals) there were 5 different fires that started at the same time one night, and the hotel burned down. The current St. George's Club condo set-up is now at this location.
