Stayed here in 2012 in room four and had a fantastic time, stunning views, friendly family run establishment and good food. Revisited this time for lunch as staying on south coast, not disappointed. Good food and service, staff warm relaxed and friendly. Still retains the family run atmosphere. Well worth a visit

We recently returned from several weeks over on the west coast and visited the Round House on one of our final days for lunch. It was the best meal we had on the island- with the most lovely server (as usual I didn't get her name, sadly). The fish pate was delicious and my picky teenager said the coconut shrimp... More

My family and I travelled to Barbados from Canada in June 2014. On our previous visits to Barbados over the years, we had stayed regularly at the old Atlantis hotel in Bathsheba. Its authentic Bajan charm and great food appealed to us - we always found a warm welcome there. Since our last trip however, the Atlantis Hotel was sold... More

I came to the Round House with my boyfriend and we stayed in Room 4 for a week in March. Location-wise, it really is far from everything (which we saw as a plus). You really have to rent a car if you stay her, and driving is SCARY!!!! (especially for Americans not used to driving on the left side of... More

Any visit to Barbados must include coming to The Round House Inn which is or was a hidden gem, that now appears to be hitting the spot with more and more people. Four years ago this place was still good even amidst the depression that had damaged Barbados tourism and has now had a sympathetic face lift and is even... More

We loved everything about our stay at the Round House Inn. We had three excelent meals - lunch, dinner and breakfast, which were all very good. The room (Room 3) was very cosy with a special design and an amazing vew of the bay. We really love this place and will be back if we have a chance.

I have stayed at the Round House several times but not for a few years. Sadly it now seems to be run by people who have little idea of how to run a hotel. The room was fine but the restaurant had a very limited menu in the evenings and considering Bathsheba is a long way from most restaurants this... More

Round House is a family run business, and has been owned and operated by the same family for the past 20 years. In the few years since your last visit, there have been updates made to the rooms, dining room, grounds and menus under the same ownership. From all accounts when we showed you to your room you expressed that... More

This was a lunch stop. We were about half way around the island of Barbados. The location is perfect on the wilder west side. No place to swim but a lovely view. The Roundhouse is a perfect had way point. The service was accommodating and friendly. The food was to die for. Absolutely delicious. There are no bad voices here.... More
