  • 4.0.Fair

    Run down, dark, disappointing. Beautiful grounds but they not make up for the ruin of a room. Broken ceiling fan, tears in the mosquito net, large gaps in exterior walls. No deck chairs. Leakes from the shower, fridge and roof. A rooster beneath our window pre-dawn, critters in the wardrobe. Hearing our polite (solicited) thoughts on the room, owner Richie's unapologetic response was 'We don't normally use that room, you should have booked direct.' Noted, but at full rate, unappreciated. Good food, lovely guests, gift shop worth a visit. We stayed at several properties on Nevis at the same price point and those rooms were far superior for value and condition. We were relieved to move on after two sleepless nights. Perhaps other rooms are in better repair. Are you feeling lucky?

    Love this beautifully maintained and restored historical hotel. Traditional influenced meals and the character of this property makes for a unique experience quite like no other. Great staff that make you feel like family is such a lovely touch. One of the most fascinating, unique hidden getaways I’ve wver visited. I truly loved our third visit and can’t wait to return.
