If I tell you that this was our 5th stay at The House in five years, then I think you will already appreciate that it is a favourite spot for us. The House is clearly very successful at retaining staff so you see the same welcoming familiar faces year after year who greet you by name. The beach service seems... More

My husband and I stayed here on our Honeymoon back in June 2011, it was the most amazing place I've ever stayed. We have compared everything since to The House. It's been almost 5 years but we can't wait to go back! The people were wonderful, the service was amazing, it's just what you would imagine your honeymoon to be... More

I will try to make this as balanced as possible. Cannot fault the helpful approach of the staff (cleaners, bar staff, managers). They were always on hand, always willing and able to offer any assistance requested. For example, I became unwell on the holiday and the hotel staff arranged for me to see a Dr and collected the prescription within... More

This was our second visit to The House. The service remains excellent with staff friendly but not overbearing, Situated in an ideal location for the many restaurants in the area, the hotel is one of the best i've visited. Its all about the people! Already booked for next year.

From the moment we were met at the airport by our meet & greet hostess, to chatting to Livingstone Alleyne our taxi driver we felt, once again, welcome and at home in Barbados. Then the warm welcome from Cherry Ann and Alvin when we walked into The House just settled it - we would be returning here! Joanna, the manager,... More

This was our second time in Barbados but our first time at The House. There are so many good things to say about this hotel it is difficult to know where to start. If Barbados is all about relaxing and unwinding in a perfect location, then this is what The House is all about. Having stayed the previous year at... More

My second stay at The House. The hotel is in a beautiful spot and the atmosphere is relaxed but professional. The staff are lovely - attentive, pay attention to detail and are not intrusive. A great breakfast though other meals, mainly sourced from Daphnie's next door, are not quite up to the standard one would expect in a hotel at... More

We've actually lost count of the number of times we've stayed at the fabulous House hotel in Barbados! This is our favourite hotel in the Caribbean, if not the world. What makes this place so special is that it's so intimate - a truly luxurious boutique hotel with fantastic service. It says something about a property that can retain the... More
