Often when you arrive in a big city (or big by Caribbean standards) the main thing you search for is peace of mind. The poisitiong is perfect in a safe area and everyone is friendly and welcoming. There are various places to get breakfast within a 2 to 3 minute walk. It is also easy to be collected for excursions to other parts of the island. An excellent choice.

Located close to the heart of Port of Spain, Gingerbread House is an oasis from the busy surroundings. The four guestrooms are completed to a very high standard and decorated very tastefully. We took all four rooms for a family holiday so can attest to the quality of the whole accommodation. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and always on hand with help and advice. I would highly recommend.
