We spent a week at Montpelier, which served as a base for exploring historical sites on Nevis, The plantation has been won wonderfully restored as an inn, with beautiful gardens all around. It was here that British Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson , then a captain in the Royal Navy, was introduced to Frances Nisbet, who later became Mrs, Nelson. Walk down the road a short distance, to a historical marker, which marks the site of the plantation's great house and the large cotton tree, under whose branches the wedding took place.
Stayed at the Montpelier Plantation Inn for vacation in Nevis this past May (2022) and it was absolutely lovely. The rooms are clean, bright and airy and the grounds a lush and beautiful. We had several meals at the Montpelier and they were all excellent start to finish - the scones at breakfast were just delicious. Highlights were dinner in the sugar mill (every single course was gorgeous as well as delicious) and the beach barbecue. The staff was friendly and super helpful, especially Mandy, Jackie, Abi, Leslie and Tarik (and Cosmo the dog!). Great pool and fantastic private beach. We we met several interesting and friendly guests and overall had a fabulous time at the Montpelier. Highly recommend!
I've always wanted to visit Nevis and a good deal on ba.com made that possible. Flights are via Antigua both ways. BA on time but their in-flight catering has reached new depths - it was awful. Transfer booked via BA website and that went very smoothly. The Montpelier is ideal for a truly relaxing break in a delightful, peaceful location. No TVs in the rooms and no enforced entertainment! The staff without exception are the best I have come across in years and the owner makes herself known to all the guests. The rooms are spread across the grounds in the beautiful grounds. Huge beds, showers with plenty of hot water, Nespresso machine and a terrace from which you can watch the abundant bird and wildlife including the resident troupe of monkeys! The food is excellent with a good wine list. Our only slight disappointment was the beach barbecue on the Thursday. I thought it was only for hotel guests but it seems to be open to the public and there wasn't any open fire grilling of meats and fish etc. Just fish in a prepared sauce, some rather skinny ribs and overdone lobster tails. Still it was a nice location and the band were great. Transport to the beach was included in the US$70 charge.…
My family and I enjoyed an idyllic week at Montpelier. The setting in the hills is so beautiful. We appreciated the gracious staff, excellent service and food and serenity. It was especially restorative for us being from one of the largest cities in North America. Nevis is a beautiful hideaway as well. We were glad we rented a vehicle to get out and explore. Will definitely be back
A beautiful, secluded boutique hotel where service is second to none and you really feel looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for the reception staff to organise, the owner was on-site and made the effort to get to know us. The standard and quality of food was very high. The highlight of the week was the beach bbq, a must to attend, very romantic and well organised. Not a place for you if you want dancing and drinking past midnight or noisy gatherings round the pool. This is for those that seek a tranquil and peaceful haven to recharge the batteries. Last but not least, a nightly ritual of sitting on our verandah to watch the sun set was just breathtaking.
Full disclosure: I am a fifth-time guest at this amazing property. Why do I keep coming back? The location is amazing -- in the hills of beautiful Nevis. I love the cooling breezes, the peacefulness and gorgeous views. This is a place for relaxing and recharging. The staff works as a team and they are great. They helped us arrange day trips, car rental, restaurant reservations etc. The food and beverage service at Montpelier is top-notch. I was so sorry to have to leave.
I stayed here for a week with my family. We had a terrific time: the food (at the restaurant and pool bar) is the best I’ve had in the Caribbean, the vibe is perfectly chill and classy, the views and property are outstanding and the rooms are comfortable. If you want a big luxury white glove resort that could be anywhere, this is not your place. However if you want a place that makes you feel like you are a houseguest at a fabulous estate where you don’t see many other guests and the service is quietly unassuming, yet still friendly and attentive- you will like this place. Many days at the pool, our family were the only people around. There are amazing grounds that have tons of wildlife (monkeys!) which we really enjoyed as well. We really liked the ability to go explore and then come back “home” to such a relaxing beautiful place. I highly recommend the Beach BBQ which was spectacular- it almost felt like a wedding in terms of the care put into it. Then, I caught covid and had to spend another week at the resort while my family went home. I was absolutely floored at how wonderfully I was treated by the hotel- I don’t think it would have been different if I were their family. They helped me organize testing, brought me food, the owner and manager called me regularly to make sure I was doing ok. I ran out of prescription medication and the owner was able to track it down for me and get it sent from a different island. It was truly over the top and just superb. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a differentiated experience in the Caribbean.…
We quarantined for 14 splendid days -excellent service, fabulous food. Lots of history to soak up and expansive grounds for walking. We were able to visit the Montpelier beach in the second week, an exclusive white sand beach with rum punch bar! Family run and their care is seen in all instances and aspects. Highly recommended .
Very calm an quiet place, love the fact they have a sugar mill you can dine in. Unfortunately we were only able to have burgers which were amazing. The staff there seems pretty nice. It was a wonderful night. Hoping to return in the near future.
Need to see it to believe it. This Hotel located at the mountain side have one of the best view of Nevis. Rooms are just the best and cleanness. Quiet, very quiet place to relax. They also got their own beach site a few minutes away. Restaurant is a must, really good food!!!
