My son and I visited over Easter in 2014 and fell in love with this beautiful house. The staff, the food, the tennis and pool were fantastic. Each room was tastefully decorated and had just want we needed. The tasting menu was fantastic, a wonderful mix of Caribbean food and European food. Overall charming, easy to get around from/to, lovely/helpful... More

Olveston House is an interesting bit of Montserrat history converted to a wonderful guest inn. The best thing about it are Carol and Margaret who take you in and make you feel like home. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, and the verandah restaurant serves food of excellent quality in a cool, breezy setting. Great fun at Friday pub nights.... More

If you are looking for somewhere to just kick back and relax this is the place to stay. I highly recommend this guest house to anyone visiting Montserrat. They are based in Olveston which is about 20 mins from the airport in a taxi (which they can book for you). Margaret, Carol and all the staff bar none were fantastic... More

We spent all four nights of our visit to Montserrat at Olveston House. The rooms are simple, uncluttered, clean and cool. Three rooms lead out onto the wrap around balcony with lots of comfortable chairs for lounging around and relaxing. The other three rooms have no direct access to the balcony but compensate with AC. The food and drink is... More

Had a very nice, leisurely lunch here on our day trip to Montserrat. Olveston House was strongly recommended to us and we were very glad we took the advice! Margaret & Carole were attentive and friendly hostesses, even during a very full lunch sitting. The menu was creative and fresh and the setting on the verandah made for a wonderful... More

Just returned from 3 nights at Olveston House. Was the perfect end to the Caribbean holiday. Stunning setting and perfect location for a chilled out and relaxing break. Probably no better hosts in the Eastern Caribbean and many places could learn a lot from Margaret, Carole, Sarah and Mr Wilson! Once you have soaked up the ambience of the island... More

Having stayed at Olveston House for two weeks in October, some at the same time as ARV Oxford, we fully endorse everything she has said in her review. Nothing was too much trouble for Margaret, Sarah, Carole and their staff. Margaret and Sarah's menu was always interesting, beautifully prepared and delicious. Sitting on the gallery having breakfast watching iguanas, egrets... More

What a wonderful 8 days at Olveston. Montserrat is a quiet, sparsely populated island (due to the fact that many people left for good following the eruptions which destroyed the capital,Plymouth, and other areas in the south) so there are not that many places to stay. We chose Olveston, following a review in the Daily Telegraph, and immediately realised we... More

Arriving at Olveston House is like staying with friends but with the added experience of being in a house with a history and some of the best home cooking you will find in the Eastern Caribbean. The rooms are simply furnished and decorated in local style with reminders of the history and owner of the house. If you are looking... More

We spent a week in Olveston house. It has an interesting history, as it for years was a residence of Sir George Martin, legendary producer of The Beatles, who recorded their music in Montserrat. His Montserrat Air Studio saw also many other famous musicians of seventies and eighties. Various memorabilia confirm this story. In our room a Gold LP commemorative... More
