Small boutique style hotel in amazing grounds and gardens with lots of preserved features from the 19th century. The colonnaded dining are for lunch is very classy and atmospheric. The lobster sandwich was recommended fare here and we were not disappointed -- quite exceptional. Highly recommended to call in for the aforementioned sandwich lunch and to see the grounds/gardens.

Booked dinner as read great reviews but was somewhat disappointed by the ambience, particularly the bar area. I can imagine the grounds are fantastic during daylight hours but the night time vibe was missing. Food was good but had to wait a long time for drinks to be refilled. Myself and my partner like to retire to the bar after... More

The approach to the grounds and restaurant is truly wonderful, beautiful gardens which have obviously had a lot of thought and detail put into the planning. Spend time looking around and enjoy the surroundings. Lots of different areas to eat, In or out, and try to go both during the day and evening. We had lunch in the gardens and... More

We thought we were for sure lost by the time we found the parking lot. Monkeys scampering everywhere, lush jungle foliage, beautiful old stone structures, orchids everywhere. Serene setting for lunch on the patio. We decided to explore the grounds before we left, which made for a nice hike. Couldn't help taking lots of photos of the exotic foliage!

Our family of six had a great dinner at The Rocks. The setting is really neat overlooking a rock landscape with koi pools all around. I had the conch chowder and lobster tail entree. The conch soup was delicious with some good spice. I'm really picky about chowder and thought it was exceptional. The lobster was very tender and seasoned... More

What an amazing setting! Great food at a boutique hotel nestled at the foot of Mt. Nevis. You must get there during daylight hours to see the most beautiful gardens. Golden Rock sits on 95 acres of what used to be a sugar mill plantation. It is not to be missed if you spend any time on Nevis

We were touring some 'sailors' (what a fun day!) around the island and decided that Golden Rock had to be on the tour. Lunch there was so good. I had the chicken sandwich with the sweet potato fries. Worth the trip up the road just for those fries. There was lots of lobster on the table as well in the... More

Well worth the journey as it is such a special place. Very quiet when we were there but it was great to have a meal without the usual accompaniment of loud, and at times, overbearing and rude, Four Seasons' guests who seemed to dominate many of the other restaurants we ate at. We were seated in a small pagoda style... More
