Upon arrival at this hotel the view is breathtaking, something which you'll remember always. Offered a (very strong!) rum punch, we were whisked off to our room straight away. Sea view rooms overlook the swimming pool but there's no noise drifting up. The bathrooms are well appointed, all the toiletries you could possibly need including toothbrush and paste, and piles...

We've just returned from one of the most magical holidays we've ever experienced. The House has been the most perfect place for us. The non exclusive element means you get to explore the area and the wonderful fine dining and elegance that comes with that as well as more authentic local places in Holetown that should not be missed. However... More

My perfect holiday and Joanna and Team helped to make it so. This hotel is so well situated for the best restaurants, shops and other events and the House... More

If you can imagine your own villa on the beach with a staff trying to ensure that your every wish is met then you can come close to this small boutique property. It is not perfect though. There are small areas where improvements could be made but if you want a laid back beach holiday with high levels of guest... More

My husband and I have recently returned from 10 days at The House and we both agree it is the best high end boutique hotel on the island. From the moment we arrived we where made to feel relaxed and at home and the Ambassadors cater for your every need and are superbly managed by Joanna the Manager. The champagne... More

We have just returned from 8 nights at The House and have to say it's one of the best guest houses we've ever stayed in. Must mention the following staff: Jefferson, Diana, Andrew, Kerrie, Agnes, Christopher & Ricardo. All on hand and nothing too much trouble at all. Mustn't forget my little friend Ginger the house cat who is just... More

This is in my opinion one of the best hotels in Barbados on a lovely stretch of the beach. It has the personal touch and the rooms are fantastic. Plus a champagne breakfast. What more can you want. it is in an ideal location with easy access to other parts of the island

The House is a wonderful boutique hotel. You really do feel at home and very comfortable from the moment you walk in. We chose an ocean front suite which was situated above the breakfast/bar area and never once were we disturbed by any noise; either in the evening or early in the morning. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable... More
