“You have to experience Round House!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I have been here more than once and will stay here every time I go back to Barbados! As someone else said on here "It feels like home!", it's a family run business and they treat you like family! Everyone who works there are very polite and friendly.
Round House has the best views, with a one minute walk to the beach, and if I may say so, one of the best beaches in the world!! If you are a surfer, the famous Soup Bowl is right there, and is always filled with great locals from Bathsheba.
The building is older, but has a very artistic feel, and lots of character, which is great for travelers who like some history behind there vacation. The rooms are great, exactly what you need and always clean! If your looking for somewhere unique, this is the place to be! There is a restaurant which serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily with amazing fresh, local food!
All I have to say is you have to experience Round House and beautiful Bathsheba! I already booked my next trip!

We stayed for a few days in February, and enjoyed the character of the Roundhouse. The location is breathtaking, and the staff all worked very hard, both in the hotel and in the busy bar/restaurant. Although it is an older building and subject to the weathering caused by the endless sea breezes (which we found to be wonderful) our room was spotless on arrival, and was cleaned/refreshed every two days, which was plenty for our needs.The management readily answered any questions we had about the area, and was helpful in arranging transportation. The restaurant was very good, and the beach offered lots of opportunity for exploring. A great value for Barbados.

Room Tip: The budget rooms are on the small side. Room 4 is spacious with spectacular panoramic views and a pr...

If you wanna surf the Soupbowl and stay in a nice place with a good price, RoundHouse is the place to go. From everywhere in the House you can watch the break and have a great view of Bathsheba (speacially room 4), one of the most beautiful places in the island. The people from there have a good vibe and are really friendly as well, helping to have a more local experience. The restaurant is great also and, if you are travelling in a budget, there's also some good choices to find cheaper food along the main street. Spent good times there, recommend it for sure.

Once again, I have spent a week In Barbados at the Round House. You can go nowhere else in Bathsheba and find such wonderful staff and surroundings. It always feels like home when I am there!! I can walk down stairs and have breakfast, lunch & dinner for 7 days and enjoy somthing differant each day. The dessert each night tops the day. Wish I could live there year round

Room Tip: Room 3 allows for wonderful ocean breeze with no need for air condictioning. The outside deck off t...

Room was dirty with towels that have seen better days. Roof window was leaking to our beds when it was raining. Old dirty Barbados brochures. Dirt and hair everywhere. Rooms look nice on website and they are nice, but seemed like we had a room that had not been cleaned properly for ages!! Restaurant was good and we enjoyed their food. Do not expect too much from the breakfast that is included the price. Its just slices of toast with butter and jam.

Slide off your flip flops, rinse your feet in the foot pool, cruise into the bar and let Omar fix you a refreshing lemonade.......... Welcome to the Round House! The historic B&B has breath taking views, a beautiful staff and AWESOME bk mac and cheese pie! The rooms are clean and each one unique to it self. Room #1 is perfect for a solo trip with access directly to the patio (with a lovely little wading pool). Room #4 is my personal favorite for a relaxing couple escape! The view is spectacular. Bring a book, kick back and relax. The beach is awesome for beach combing. I found so much beach glass! And when your looking for adventure, a quick stroll down the block which runs along the beach, grab the bus and east coast bound! This is definitely a place to put your mind to rest! I never want to leave! My retirement destination!

Room Tip: All four rock. Two have direct access to the patio, #1 and #4.

If you're looking for a place where everything is perfect, search an other location...
If you're looking for a place to meet barbadians, have a good sleep earing the waves, have sweet times with people inside and outside the bar or the hotel, Round House Inn is the right place.
Come to be coooool, no stress and you will have a good time, if you come stressed, and you're looking for perfection, you will have a bad time. If you need something you will find someone to give you tip in simple way
If you're a surfer, it's a very good place, just go on the balcony or open your windows to check Soup Bowl & Co.
