WELCOME TO THE GARRAWAY HOTEL
The Garraway Hotel sits on the original site of the first commercial establishment in Roseau, the capital city – hence its address No 1 Bay Front, Roseau which was eventually changed to One Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard following the naming of that site in honor of the Caribbean’s and Dominica’s first female Prime Minister.
Situated in the historic French Quarter of Roseau, the Garraway Hotel is adjacent to the Old Market where slaves were once bartered and sold in the nineteenth century. The old Post Office which was constructed in 1910 and which now houses the Roseau Museum is a must for history lovers. The surroundings are enhanced by a number of Creole town houses built in that era and distinguished by their wooden fretwork.
Overlooking the Caribbean Sea with its resplendent sunsets, the Garraway Hotel is perfect for that evening Sundowner. Standing as it does on this early site, it offers a mix of the ancient and the contemporary.
An ideal choice for the business and leisure visitor, the hotel is managed by descendants of James Garraway, a Scottish planter and businessman who settled in Dominica in the 1800s. In the 1840s, James Garraway was the first ‘man of color’ to serve as President of Dominica. Over the last two centuries, scions of the family have served in the legislature and in 1820 contributed to the building of the Anglican Church. Today, the family continues to contribute to the development of Dominica through the hospitality industry.
