I had to stay over one night before going to out islands. Had ocean view room (#8) which had beautiful view. Room opened onto spacious wrap around balcony with a large day bed to relax in. Room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The pool area is tropical and it was relaxing just watching large variety of colorful birds that shared... More

I wasn't impressed. It is an old colonial home, transformed into a boutique hotel. Has a lot of charming elements, but when taken it total, it misses the mark. Service was slow, they only had one person as far as we could tell who was manager, concierge, waiter, reservation agent, and bus boy. Very pleasant guy, but could not possibly... More

NIce room - very clean, but noise from other rooms a little bothersome. Still, pleasant place with good staff. Our plane was early so no breakfast to review, just coffee, which was a godsend. Complimentary water would be a nice addition.

This hotel was recommended but is definitely not a 4 star hotel! ! Maybe 2 stars We spent 5days in this hotel and must say that the site is beautiful and staff friendly But! The owners are very snobby! The rooms need urgent make over! And if you ask breakfast from menu your chances of getting it within and hour... More

We have stayed at A Stone's Throw on a number of occasions as it is the perfect location for an overnight stop before flying to the out islands. We were fortunate in being upgraded to a suite this years and the room was superb. Large, airy and the views excellent. I am particularly writing an update as ASTA now offers... More

I'm not picky at all and I am very well traveled (tour guide for ten years). This B&B could be much better if it made a few improvements. 1) we waited over 2.5 hrs for dinner and the cook was only serving 2 tables total 2) breakfast portions much too small/limited for a B&B. why in the world is the...

What a wonderful piece of Heaven in the Caribbean. Such a quiet, beautiful place on the NON-resort side of the island. The staff was so attentive and helpful. Simple but great breakfast served each morning.

The B&B is really nice and has a very european - colonial vibe to it. The rooms are spacious enough. We had booked a Garden view and got upgraded to a island view room, which was definetely a big improvement. We stayed one night on our way to Eleuthera and another on our way back. The location is convenient depending... More

We stayed at this B & B for one night waiting for our flight to Eleuthera. I had been wanting to stay here for a couple of years if ever we had the opportunity. You do have to be in decent physical condition to stay here. There are steps everywhere. Thank goodness for John, the gentleman who carried our bags... More

We made a reservation about a month ago through Expedia, pre-paid by credit card, The day of arrival I called numerous times to check on dinning options. At first no one answered the phone. Later the phone was always busy. The hotel is on a bit of a quiet and dark street. When we arrived at 8:30 the place was... More

Dear Guest, the incident sounds indeed bizarre and we never got notified by yourself, the Orange Hill or Expedia that you were not able to access our property. We have received no email, note or phone call. If it ends up to be a verified complaint we would definitively reimburse the room night. Please contact us via email at info@astonesthrowaway.com...
