The Hermitage is a small plantation inn with an excellent reputation for its charm and warm, West Indian hospitality. The guest rooms are like gingerbread cottages and are styled after the old Planter’s house with a tradition of elegant West Indian style, antiques, mahogany four poster canopy beds, and private verandahs, with swaying hammocks, in an orchard like setting of mango trees and tropical plants. The Hermitage offers tranquility and serenity in its peaceful environment.

We visited for dinner for the Wednesday Caribbean buffet. The house is very interesting and historic. There is no choice of starter or dessert - although both were good - but a decent choice for main course, including the signature whole roast pig. Very much a friendly family atmosphere. Good value for money. Well worth a visit.

We visited the Hermitage on our island tour and stayed for over an hour. The approach is winding and hilly, making the property somewhat private. The old plantation house is lovely and in wonderful condition, even containing period furnishings and china. The old cistern looks to be in good shape and all of the walkways and stone work are in good repair. Little cottages are situated around the property in a way that would allow you privacy. No air-conditioning or TV; as one reviewer said, this is the real Caribbean. There is only one place on the island that I know of where you can stay and actually access the beach without a car; I am not sure of the arrangements the Hermitage has, but they do have a nice little pool that is clean as a whistle. Probably my favorite part

Attended the Caribbean night with a roast hog. Overall the food was good however the price per head for me was extreme working out at nearly £60 for a soup starter, Hog roast with rice'n'peas, salad and some hot food along with a bread and butter rum pudding. This might sound like I'm very picky however based on the food we actually ate, and we could of had more this for me was way to over priced considering there was no entertainment which friends of mine said used to happen on this night. Staff were great but the poor mark is for price only.

If you are looking for beachside, air conditioned elegance then Hermitage is probably not for you. If however you are looking for a charming taste of the real Caribbean it might well be. The accommodation is scattered around the beautiful grounds on this delightful little island. We stayed in Goosepen Cottage which is quirky and comfortable. The food in the on site restaurant is excellent, with perhaps the proviso that the fresh fruit and buffet options at breakfast where limited. If you are staying on the Island don't miss the Wednesday evening hog roast. The spit was directly outside Goosepen and the smell drove us mad all day (in a good way!). Certain aspects of the hotel were a bit tired, for example the shower in our cottage is well overdue an update and we thought the

A friend invited us for a party over New Years and we stayed at the Yellow House, which is a 2 bedroom house on the grounds of the The Hermitage. This plantation is utterly charming. From the quaint caribbean architecture to the beautiful grounds, to the lovely women who cleaned our house each day...it was just great. Richie and his family who own the Hermitage are absolutely divine. The restaurant serves top notch fresh food. And the lovely bar serves up some very lethal rum punches! There are dogs and cats and kids running around...it just feels so comfy and friendly, like a family that you want to visit every year. I'm dying to return! Oh, and there are monkeys everywhere! They are very timid and don't come close, but it's lovely to watch them. Monkeys, donkeys and goats roam
