I spent a week at Rosebank in the small studio. It was perfect for a solo traveler. The room was basic, but still had an island flair. Most importantly, it was clean. Grocery/Restaurants to fit every budget was close by and it was easy to catch a bus if needed. Also, Rosebank is very close to the Hastings Boardwalk and the beautiful Accra Beach. Though Sandie was out of town during my stay, Richard was very helpful in making suggestions and providing transportation if needed. I just got back and am planning a second trip already! Enough said

My Husband and I stayed at Rosebank Apartments in April 2012. The Room was very clean, we felt safe in the area and transportation was very easy 2 minutes or less to the corner for a bus ($2 Bd). Sandie was helpful and also the Gardener was very helpful in letting us know where some shops/groceries were and how to get around as it was our first time to Barbados. I loved it, the bed was very comfortable. Will definately go back to Rosebank Apartment on my next trip to Barbados and it is ideally located, close to the mall, restaurants (to fit any pocket/budget), beaches, banks and much more. So if you don't feel like cooking, you can eat out. Loved it.

Stayed at RoseBank, excelent accomodation. centrally located, took local bus everywhere just bds$2.00 direct to Bridgetown, or direct to oistins.
Central located to all night life fun, resturants (expensive) or less expensive as i learnt after my first mistake, food was great but it did put a dent in my pocket. oisints is great, local friendly atmosphere.
Dive with The Dive Shop in upper Bay Street, did 2 wreck dives, Stavronikita and the Carlisle Bay Ship wrecks, would have prefared a mixture of a reef and a wreck but they already had these dives planned for the day i was booking for, but still had a good time. I was paying my usual fee of 2.00 for a bus ride to the dive shop, but they offered to pick up FREE!!!
I will be back soon.

My husband and I stayed at Rosebank for a week, in one of the suites. It's very basic but clean, safe, and close to the boardwalk which connects to beautiful Accra beach. Because it's on the main road, it's very easy to catch a bus (or walk) to St. Lawrence Gap. There's lots to see, eat and do in the neighbourhood.

Sandie was very pleasant to deal with. She upgraded us automatically because a better suite was vacant and allowed for a late-afternoon checkout.

We stayed end Jan 2012 firstly in superior one bed apt, then in a standard one bed (superior not available for whole stay). What can we say that has not already been said? This accommodation and the setting suited us to a tee! Clean, spacious and well equipped for self catering. Sandie so welcoming and couldnt be more helpful. Booked trips (Cool Runnings catamaran is a must!), found us a hire car, exchanged clean towels every time we asked. Problem with one of the shower taps - fixed that day! Location great: within 100 yds of beach and Boardwalk, yet set back far enough from road to be insulated from traffic noise. Good shopping mall (Lanterns) next door with convenience store/pharmacist, food outlets, bank etc. Tapas restaurant at end of road, Champers, Naru and numerous other eateries of all types and budgets within easy walking distance. Frequent buses also on main road.

The property was originally a sugar plantation house and is quite traditional style with lovely polished wooden floors. Super-comfy enormous beds! It has a large lovely garden out front. Free wifi a boon (playing up a bit during our stay but Sandie on to it!) For the record the road leading up to the property is well illuminated at night (a concern raised by a previous reviewer) and we felt entirely safe.

We think you would be hard-pressed to find such great accomodation in such a good location at this price elsewhere on the island. If you are looking for 5-star finery then look elsewhere, but if you require good clean no-frills comfortable accomodation with excellent customer service then we would challenge anyone to do better! This place is a gem!

This was my second visit to Rosebank. When we called at the last minute the accomodation I requested was booked. However, Sandie offered an alternative which we were delighted to have...the cottage, which was actually the original stable to the plantation. As we are opening our own guesthouse (which we expected to move into during our stay), Rosebank was convenient. As things dragged on, waiting for shipments to come in, dealing with workmen who failed to do what had been promised, unexpected challenges, etc. etc., we found our stay was extended. We actually had planned to stay two weeks and ended up staying five weeks. Throughout all of this Sandie became our guardian angel. She offered encouragement, advice and understanding and at our lowest point, a wonderful gift! (I would let her tell you about it!) My earlier review said that Rosebank was almost like being home. Well, think about home with your best friend, sister or mom being in charge. When our stay became longer than anticipated, she graciously offered another room and on our last day, Chris took us down to our own guesthouse where we FINALLY moved in. I know that Rosebank Apartments are extraordinary. But we received more than an five-star accomodation would or could give to us.
Thank you Sandie and Chris. From Jackquelynn and David.
