I have stayed at the Gingerbread house twice now in 2 years, after staying in a different B&B 3 years ago. Rosemary is a wonderful host who brought us coffee and breakfast snacks every day. The rooms are quite spacious, comfortable and clean, with all the amenities you'll need. The place is just a 10 minute walk from the Queen's... More

We stayed in this B&B for 6 nights after our trip to Tobago. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous, with a little garden and a pool at the back - a quiet spot if you want to get away from the city craziness. At the same time it's location is perfect - just off the Avenue and the main highway... More

We stayed in the room behind the office for 4 nights after spending a week in Tobago. Although this was our first stay in a Bed and Breakfast (we usually stay in an apartment with kitchen) it was very enjoyable ... private, quite comfortable and the price was very reasonable. The location is great. We did a lot of walking... More

Three nights at Gingerbread turned to a magical three weeks. Holidaying alone I found a "home" with wonderful characters, friendly and welcoming, comfortable, secure accommodation and a spot convenient for the city, panyards , cricket ground and eating places aplenty. I can't speak highly enough of Rosemary as hostess - attentive and relaxed she helped Trini live for me even... More

After staying at The Hilton for a few nights we were looking for something different and we found it at The Gingerbread House. Beautiful room with high ceilings, air conditioning, fridge, wifi and a sparkling bathroom with high spec fittings. The garden deck area with the plunge pool is lovely after a day out in Port of Spain. Close to... More

Panther, the driver picked me up at POS airport. His professional friendly personality made me comfortable. On arrival Rosemary greeted me and took me to a beautiful apartment looking site close to the pool. This is the beginning. Rosemary is gracious and always available. I enjoyed the jets in the pool, the patio, socialized with other guests, played with the... More

This extremely comfortable Guest House is a true "find" and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a central location, a respectful and accommodating staff, lovely rooms with A/C and extremely well appointed facilities. The garden,poolside and terrace are all well maintained and provide respite from the hustle & bustle of nearby Ariapita Avenue where you can find numerous... More

Rosie and Bernard host a lovely 3-bedroom restored house in Port of Spain. The location is 1 1/2 blocks from Ariapita Avenue which is teeming with good restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and air conditioned - a pleasant place to return after sightseeing. Rosie is an accommodating and nice person. The price is right and the value excellent.

After a long flight, it was so comforting to arrive at the Gingerbread House and be welcomed by Rosy, the owner! She was very accommodating and extremely helpful with our many Trinidad inquiries! I loved the combination of the restored Carib house and the lovely contemporary bathrooms. The back garden area and deck are a delightful place to relax and... More
