If you want to get away for a few days without the hassel of friends, family, employers or the world, THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO TO. I went to Barbados on business but decided to spend a few extra days. This place was perfect. No telephones ringing, no noise, just peace and quiet. The beach was a stone throw... More

If you're expecting the Ritz, be warned, go elsewhere...but if what you want is a clean and safe place to drop your stuff while you spend your time on the beach or exploring around, and a comfortable place to kick back at night, then this is the place. High points: Helpful staff It took less than 5 minutes to walk... More

It has been many years since I was in Barbados, and I was not disappointed! The Meridian Inn is a quaint efficiency hotel...very clean and in a fabulous location. Short walk to the beach, close to all the nightlife and restaurants in the Gap. My girls and I stayed for 16 days and could not have enjoyed it more! The... More

The Meridian Inn is fanatstic value for money. It is clean, the staff are very friendly and you cannot beat the location as it is a few minutes walk from the beach & the nite life in St Lawerence Gap. I would strongly recommend the Meridan Inn to anyone whether you are on a budget or not. I first stayed... More

I have booked my stay at Meridian Inn directly after searching through numerous apartments on offer around St Lawrence Gap on the internet. It was a last minute holiday and I booked the flights 5 days before my girlfriend and I were due to go. I picked Meridian Inn because it looked very nice in the pictures, it was near... More

We certainly value the opinions of our clients and for the most part our reviewers are quite pleased with the cleanliness, location, affordability and friendliness. It is most distressing to get reviews like this one. I find it very amazing that some individuals who book here think they are going to be stay at 5 star resort. This is not... More

The Meridian Inn is EXTREMELY basic. If you have high standards, just dont even consider the Meridian Inn. The pictures on the Web site make the place look a HELL of a lot better than it actually is. The location is good. The Big problem is that there are constantly vendors trying to sell you Everything under the sun, mainly... More

Gord and the other receptionist were very friendly. The room is basic. Bed, bathroom and a small kitchennete with a small fridge, cooker and microwave. Only saw one cockroach but... More

Had a wicked holiday for the second year running staying at this excellent value for money hotel. Gordy & Joy made us feel at home again and we could not fault the rooms or the cleanliness provided to us on a daily basis by the friendly cleaning staff. We will definately be going back to the Meridian and look forward... More

I have been going to Barbados for the last 25 years and have stayed at the Meridian Inn twice a year for the last 10 years and each time it is like going home for a visit. Many people who have stayed there keep going back because it is like visiting family everytime you go. The staff is wonderful, very... More
