I stayed at the Hummingbird Hotel for a 4 day rest and relaxation period before heading over to Trinidad. The hotel is in a location that is very peaceful and quiet. The beaches can be walked to, however, it is about a 15 minute walk to Store Bay, and longer to Pigeon Point. I rented a car, so driving there was just a few minutes to Store Bay, and a few minutes more to Pigeon Point.
Pennysavers and other stores on Milford Road are just a few minutes away by car, as are many restaurants and bars on the main "strip".
The room was comfortable, as was the bed, and I awoke feeling well rested. It is not a posh resort, if that is what you are seeking, but it is comfortable, and clean, which is what I wanted.
The owners are friendly, and seemed to enjoy interacting with their guests. I did not take meals at the hotel, but I did catch the aroma of what was probably a very delicious meal coming from the kitchen, so you would probably not be disappointed if you did take meals there.
Very good for a budget hotel with a nice pool.

I stayed for two weeks at the Hummingbird and was extremely happy with my stay. Paul and Linda were extremely welcoming and made you feel at home. The rooms were well kept and clean with a comfortable bed and with great air con and a small mini bar. Bathrooms were good and the room also had a tv. The pool was excellent; breakfast and dinner was available. Laundry was also available. Location was perfect: a short walk from Crown Point centre but far enough away to be quiet at night. The place had a great ambience which matched the calm, peaceful ambience of the island in general. I would thoroughly recommend and would stay again if I get the chance.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our holiday in Tobago and had a lovely time.
Sorry to go into a little detail now, but I wanted to give a bit of context!
On the day of our arrival we had a day trip to Trinidad with Newton George. We emailed to tell The Hummingbird of our plans - we agreed to leave our car at the Hummingbird at 5am (as we had stayed in Castara the night before) and weren't expecting to actually check in until gone 9pm that night. As it happens we got an earlier flight back from Trinidad and arrived around 8pm.
I was a bit worried that arriving an hour earlier than planned would be a bit cheeky, but Paul, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming and laid-back and was not phased at all! He gave us a very warm welcome and was very helpful.
The room was nicely furnished with a mini-bar (beer not outrageously priced either, hurrah!), a microwave and kettle (though there's no cups or anything, so if you want a DIY hot drink, bring your own cups and spoons!) and a comfy double bed and a single, as well as a TV and AC. The shower room was compact but very clean!
We had breakfast on the second morning there, and wish we'd had it on the first morning too (we didn't read the literature in the room properly - too knackered from our Trinidad trip!). It was easily one of the nicest cooked breakfasts we'd had for a long time! They also do evening meals (you need to book in advance by 1030am on the day) which from the menu looked nice and good value.
Restaurants are a very quick drive away at Crown Point - there are plenty to choose from. If you walk it's only 10/15mins down the road.
The swimming pool is great for cooling off in. On the day we checked out our flight wasn't until late in the afternoon but Paul was happy for us to sit by the pool and chill for the morning. In fact, check out isn't until 12pm so it's very relaxed.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Hummingbird, even being close to the airport it's still very quiet! Also Tobago is so small you could easily base yourself here and you're still within driving distance of the island's attractions and other towns.
