Well maintained property in a quiet part of town. We had two rooms. Bedrooms and bathrooms are good size and well fitted out. Pleasant outside seating areas. Toni is most welcoming and attentive to the guests' needs, providing support, information on things to do and see in the area.

Nice guesthouse with excellent hostess Tony, who talked us through the highlights of St Lucia and was always there to answer questions and assist with the rooms. We were very happy with the heater function of the airco, as it can get gold in the evening in African winters.

I've stayed in a lot of hotels in my life but never before had a welcome briefing like this. "Shut the gate," she said, "because the hippos like to wander in and eat the grass at night." She wasn't joking - that very night I was out in my hire car and met a massive mutha and her calf just... More

Our journey to Whalesong was long and very tiring, Tessa's warm greeting was so welcoming. She immediately made us feel that we could relax and start to brush off the cares of the day. The next morning she gave us (quickly) all the information that we needed to make the very most of our brief stay. She even helped organise... More

Whalesong B&B feels like home away from home. Our hostess Tessa made our stay very enjoyable, and she ensures that every visitor's needs are met. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and breakfast was first class!

As is often the case there are both very good and not so good things about Whalesong. The staff and owners were incredibly helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. Breakfast was well cooked and presented, if a little sparse, and the rather odd coffee machine provided amusement if not actually the best coffee. But Whalesong is a little jaded... More
