This was our first trip to Barbados although we have been to the Caribbean before.We felt that the hotel was very tired and in need of some decoration and a general tidy up. We found the reception area most unwelcoming - just a desk and a large plant. The outside of the hotel was unkempt . There were two lovely... More

My new husband and I came here on the first week of our honeymoon. It's a lovely little boutique hotel with only 24 rooms I think. Having just paid for a wedding we could only afford the cheapest standard room. If we went again I'd much rather stay in a superior room. There was nothing really wrong with ours, I've... More

Third visit to this lovely small and friendly hotel. There had been a refurbishment since we went previously and it had been done very tastefully. We had a Juniour suite which was very spacious and a large bathroom with separate shower and also separate toilet. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Food choice was good too. Although the hotel... More

This hotel is everything you could wish for and more. We arrived mid afternoon, and were greeted with a smile and drink, we were quickly checked in, two different rooms (there were three of us). We had room 10 which was by the courtyard, some people I guess would be hesitant to have this room, but we loved it, we... More

I would stay here again with out giving it a second thought. Its so intimate and friendly and the staff are so welcoming. The buildings are lovely old rum stores which have been sympathetically converted to accommodation. There are areas that could do with a little attention like the bath rooms and some small decor issues but over all its... More

Lovely holiday in Barbados at the relaxing Island Inn Hotel. Rooms cleaned and towels changed everyday. Food was delicious with a choice of starters and main for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was buffet style with the normal choices of fruit, cereals, and fry up. You can request poached or omelette if you want a change from scrambled eggs. Reception ladies... More

My first impression was also that it's a mediocre hotel and my opinion didn't change. The people who work in this hotel though are very special and I also home in on Sharon on reception who is a wonderful and helpful person. Jamal and Earl behind the bar are also very pleasant.
