“Best B&B I've stayed at in the Caribbean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2014 via mobile

I've been to Barbados several times and generally stay on beachside properties. On a whim I decided on this trip to spend a couple of days exploring Bridgetown so booked into Sweetfield and am SO glad I did. This was by far and away the best inn-type property I've stayed at when in the West Indies. The decor is plantation style which I normally dislike (because of the historical connotations), but actually works well in this setting. Imagine the spacious home of a tasteful Barbardian Supreme Court judge and you'll get the vibe. The grounds are thoughtfully landscaped and it's atop a hill so catches a good breeze with nice views of the surrounding parish and the sea beyond.

The breakfasts were excellent and the staff go out of their way to put you at your ease. Michelle (the manager) and Timisha in particular were very helpful. My only regret is that I was there for just two nights. The mass market hotels now rather pale in comparison! Will definitely be back.

Heaven hidden downtown BRIDGETOWN...
For your 1st visit, ask Michelle to make the arrangement to pick you up at the airport or you may end up visiting the whole island before getting there ;-)
Pure inspiration!!! (Guests; Service; Food: AWESOME!!!)
Easy access to everything
Kids will enjoy the place too as there are peacocks, birds, fish and monkeys to look at (Don't worry about them; you will be able to sleep soundly)
Michelle, you made my stay overthere with the help of your staff
I will not bother with RADISSON BLUE or HILTON once back to BARBADOS!!!!!

We enjoyed every minute of our week at Sweetfield Manor. The house, gardens and pool are beautiful and very private. The back door of our room opened onto a lovely deck that overlooked the gardens and the path to the pool. The food was exquisite with a four-course breakfast served in the dining room or gardens every morning. We had a gourmet picnic lunch provided for the beach and also enjoyed a romantic, delicious dinner-for-two served in the dining room during our stay. The pool was designed to look like a natural pool and is surrounded by lush vegetation and rocks with a waterfall at one end. The manager was very attentive providing full service with transportation from the airport, making reservations for dinner and activities and advising us on what to see in Barbados and how to get there. We would recommend Sweetfield Manor Historic Bed & Breakfast to anyone who wants a beautiful, quiet, relaxing place to stay where they can be pampered and enjoy excellent cuisine while visiting Barbados.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. There are four rooms in the house and two rooms in the adjacent building i...

Location: this beautiful Bed and Breakfast is situated near Bridgetown but in the beautiful garden with a beautiful view.

Hotel: it is not a really hotel, byt a very nice plantation house - Bed and Breakfast. It´s small, nice, romantic, pleasant, calm and really beautiful accomodation with amazing garden and pool - little lake directly in the tropical garden. It has only 7 rooms. Sweetfield Manor was owned by George and Ann Clarke and it was number 1 on Tripadvisor. But, it has been sold before a few weeks and now it has new management. That´s the reason, why it doesn´t have any reviews on Tripadvisor. We visitied Sweetfield Manor during the Christmas and it was the best time on Barbados.

Surroundings: hotel is located in a beautiful tropical garden, near Bridgetown. You should have the car for discovering town and island, but you can use also the taxi.

Accomodation: is nice, clean, pleasant, elegant. We visited Sweetfield Manor during the Christmas and we were alone there. Our room had a large terrace and it was directly in the beautiful garden with a little lake, where we could swim. Sweetfield Manor has an unusual concept. Guests have their own rooms, but also whole plantation house with kitchen, living-room, dining-room, terrace and garden, is open for them anytime. It´s a really amazing.

Breakfast: absolutely perfect. You have 4 course menu, which is prepare from fresh products, like fruits, eggs, juices, etc.

Food: Sweetfield Manor is Bed and Breakfast, so you have just breakfast here. There are some restaurants around, where you can have lunch or dinner, but you definitely need a car or taxi. Staff is a very helpful and nice and they help you with anything what you need. For example, we don´t have reservation for the Chrismas dinner (25th of December) and all restaurants were closed or full, so owners prepare for us cold cuts and dinner. It was a really nice, thank you a lot one more time!

Drinks: you can have drinks from the bar - there are waters, wines, beers, juices, or you can buy your own drinks and let them in the fridge.

Service: really very good without any problems

Staff: very nice and helpful

Advantages of this hotel:
- beautiful house with romantic and calm atmosphere
- very nice tropical garden, where you can see monkeys
- comfortable and nice accomodation
- very good service and attitude of the staff
- romantic and quite accomodation without crowds
- nice pool - little lake
- good and calm location
- very good breakfast and a few restaurants in surrounding
- free parking
- helpful and nice staff

Disadvantages of this hotel:
- prices are higher, but the quality was more then adequate
- not on the beach, but this accomodation isn´t about beaches and if you have car, it is not a problem

What you can do there:
- swimming in the little lake
- trips around the island

Our opinion: this was absolutely amazing accomodation on Barbados with very good staff, services and with the best breakfast. We truly recommend.

What you should know:
- the best choice is to rent the car
- hotel is around 30 minutes by car from the airport
