“Great hotel, great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for ten days.
Its a great area to be in, lots of bars and restaurants in the area. The room was fantastic overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Very comfortable and with a small kitchen area with a fridge and hob.
All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to assist.
Highly recommend.

We spent 10 days at the Rostrevor last winter and were well pleased. They do not have a lot of extras, but for a relaxing quiet stay, it is perfect. Located in the heart of St. Lawrence Gap so nice quiet days and because we were facing the sea, the nights weren't too too loud. Wonderful beach, quiet and private. Clean rooms and a quaint little kitchenette.

Great place to stay, I was thrilled with the experience. My room was convenient and provided my needs for in house activity. Maid services was excellent, my only down to my stay there is the early times the pool closes off and the late opening each day.

Room Tip: Room on ground floor has quick and easy access to the beach

Have just returned from a weeks stay at the Rostrevor. The hotel is perfectly located, with fantastic views and bright spacious rooms. We found all the staff to be helpful, polite and very friendly. Throughout the day the street outside is peaceful, but come the night the street comes alive with music, busy restaurants and street vendors selling everything from gifts to local cooked foods. All restaurants are reasonably priced and didn't make a massive dent in your wallet, and in return we got very enjoyable food. Local taxis are cheap to use and can be found parked close to the hotel. Would highly recommend an island tour as the views are amazing, and places of interest worth seeing. Overall would highly recommend the Rostrevor and would definitely return there.

Room Tip: Would recommend the 4th floor to really appreciate the views.

PROS

NIce Rooms
Helpful Staff
Beautiful View

CONS

Very noisy some nights (expected because it's in the heart of St. Lawrence).
Last 3 days of my vacation they decided to do room repairs in the room above. So I had very noisy days.

All in all it is not a bad place to stay and I might stay again.

Recently back from a stay at Rostrevor Hotel. The hotel is bright, spacious and well located in St. Lawrence Gap. From our room on the fourth floor, we had an absolutely breathtaking sea view of the ocean. If staying at this hotel, you must reserve a room on floor four in order to appreciate this view.

The room was large and had most things that you need. The pool was lovely and you are literally a stone throw away from a small sandy beach.

The hotel has two restaurants on site. One casual bar/restaurant and another restaurant which serves nice food. Another plus point to this hotel is the front of house staff and security.

The location to nearby bars, restaurants and Dover beach is very good.

If I chose to stay in St. Lawrence gap again, I would definitely stay at Rostrevor!

Don’t really know how to put down this in writing but I’ll try to make it simple.
If you’re about to book you stay at the Rostrevor I do recommend you the following:
Count the money and keep track of your cash. Even if it’s in the safe someone might go into the safe and rob you. The same thing with your wallet, don’t keep it out of sight.
If you’re a mixed couple, you might have issues with some of the personnel. One of the staff in the reception, Joan, might be very rude to you and treat you in a manner that shouldn't be accepted ANYWHERE in the world.
They might also tell you then you arrive that you need to change to another room which wasn't agreed upon when you booked it.
If you come across these things, do not expect help or understanding from the manager, Robin, or people close to her, like Sonia.
Robin might decide that all off this that might happen to you is just a “fishy thing” and instead of taking care and trying to help out, she might say that you’re impolite and rude.
All this happened to me and it’s the worst place I’ve ever stayed at!!! Never again and I’ll tell everyone who’s going to book a hotel, do NOT book the Rostrevor!!!
Ok, you might be able to solve all this if you meet the right policeman and if you know some “right” people…
However, I would like to end this in a positive way. Verna in the pool bar is a very nice lady!
Good luck, hopefully you might be more lucky then me if you still decide to stay there!
