We stayed at Ottley’s back in February so apologies for the delay in writing this review. Ottley’s will always be an incredibly special place to us as we spent our entire (8 day engagement) there before getting married. It was the most romantic and magical experience. We had our certificates and photos ready by the end of our holiday to... More

We are very frequent visitors to Ottley’s…usually a couple of weeks each summer. We were there in July, 2016, overlapping the couple who wrote negative comments about the dogs. In fact, there are two absolutely wonderful dogs living on the property: we always pick the cottage closest to them so that we get to say “hello” several times a day.... More

The setting was idyllic, the food plentiful, of excellent quality created by dedicated staff and served in a most friendly manner in the restaurant overlooking the coast. The gardens are kept neat and tidy (again) by dedicated staff and the cottages serviced well and frequently. The cottage itself was well equipped with modern facilities which did not disturb the colonial... More

I recently returned from a stay at Ottley's Plantation, my first trip to St Kitts, booked through BA Holidays. This hotel really appealed to me to sample an old plantation house and experience part of the culture and history of the island. I am so pleased we made this choice! The hotel is just fantastic, really different from anywhere I... More
