Where to begin! I stayed at Dover Woods for a week and it was the perfect base for my time in Barbados. St Lawrence gap is full of restaurants and bars, with lots of live music (Scoopies and the Gap are just minutes away and great options!), not to mention the stunning beaches. The guest house itself is wonderful. The... More

My best friend and I stayed here during Cropover for 5 days - you will be hard pressed to find better hospitality anywhere. You really feel at home at Dover Woods and Gail makes the extra effort to make your stay as comfortable as possible. She even helped me with a last minute alteration to my Cropover costume! I cannot... More

Gail's home was the perfect base for our two weeks in Barbados. Our room was a large en-suite and contained everything that we needed. The use of the kitchen was an added bonus and we often had breakfast on the terrace overlooking a family of monkeys who lived in the nearby woods. The guesthouse was on the lively St Lawrence...

This place is a hidden gem. Like many other visitors I chose it based on other reviews and I was not disappointed. Gail was a wonderful host, providing lots of information about the area as well as the island in general. It is a large house surrounded by a natural garden which is the home for a family of green...

Dover Woods Guesthouse was a hidden gem that my friend and I stumbled upon when booking a trip to Barbados. Gail responded to emails very fast and was extremely helpful in answering my questions before we even arrived at her place. When arriving she made us feel at home right away, by greeting us and telling us about her place... More

My friend and I spent 10 days in Barbados in October 2015 and took a chance on this guest house based on reviews left by other travellers. I have to say that this was an amazing find. The house was clean, spacious, and well positioned. Our room was huge and had an en suite bathroom with air con and a... More

Dover Woods Guesthouse is incredibly comfortable and homely. Our room was huge, and we made good use of the well stocked kitchen. Gail is so welcoming and will go out of her way to help you with any query that you have. Dover Beach (one of the nicest on the south coast) is a short walk, and the restaurants and... More

Dover Woods is one of the best located places I have ever stayed in! If you want to spend your holiday chilling out on one of the world's best beaches but not spend your life savings this is a great place to stay. The room we had was lovely and I would definitely go back!

I liked my stay at this guesthouse in Oktober 2013. The building isn't fancy, so if you decide to stay here don't plan to use it to pass time itself in the building apart from sleeping/eating/washing and all that in a comfortable way. Use it as a base to explore the Island. The location is very good, the main road... More
