“Delicious lunch and great hiking trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by the Golden Rock on a recommendation by our concierge at Nisbet Plantation. Our experience at the Golden Rock started with 1 hour of hiking (am not the biggest fan of hiking but my husband insisted) - the trail is just lovely, but you should remember to bring a bottle of water as some parts get really warm. Afterwards, we had a very nice lunch with goat cheese salad and lobster sandwiches in the tranquil gardens of the plantation. Overall it was a nice experience and we would definitely recommend it.

We were advised to visit because the views across to Monserrat and Antigua are beautiful..indeed they are. We had drinks, pleasantly served in the cool bar area. The gardens and setting are absolutely delightful. You can spot little green monkeys on the way up in the car. Only went for a short visit one morning. Our driver advised the food was excellent but we already had plans elsewhere, maybe next time we visit the island.

Room Tip: We did not stay cd not remove the rating for sleep so ignore!

We just went here for lunch and a wander round. The landscaping, water garden and views were breathtaking. Possibly the best view whilst eating a sandwich ever! Absolutely lovely. And some picturesque ruins too.

We visited this plantation after seeing it in the guide book and it was a nice place for a wander around. It has been converted into a very nice hotel so I wouldn't consider it as a historical attraction, nevertheless the grounds are pleasant. we didn't eat here but Im sure it would be a very pleasant experience.

We are here for our honeymoon and it is more than lovely,! our cottage is surrounded by lush vegetation , it is airy and private , the service is wonderful , room spotless , peter the manger has been so hospitable and helpful about all information on the island , it feels like an oasis away from the world .The resturant for breakfast and dinner has been superb, and the grounds and fish ponds and gardens are so unusual And magical ! We have driven to see many of the other plantations for lunch and golden rock is the most unusual and special !! Delighted !!

If you are visiting Nevis I highly recommend eating here. The burgers are very good, especially with goat cheese. I also drank the fruit smoothie and it was amazing (although it could have been cheaper). The atmosphere and view is great while the service is average to below average (slow lifestyle of Nevisians, everything is going to be on island time there).

Room Tip: Get the burger

A truly magnificent setting that has been undergoing renovations in the past few years. The grounds and restaurant area have been the focus though. The rooms haven't been significantly upgraded. They're nice but not high-end luxury like Four Seasons, etc. However, it's such a stunning property and the garden and restaurant area renovations are so magnificent it more than makes up for the casual nature of the accommodations. The innkeeper Peter works his butt off making everyone comfortable and informed. The new owners are pouring lots of love and energy into the place and it has become a major destination for Nevis visitors. The restaurant is superb. We had our honeymoon meal right out in the middle. It was the most romantic and touching thing about our whole holiday. We would return in a heartbeat. Nevis is a relatively untouched island with a charm all it's own. Golden Rock seems to be trying to maintain that. One downside is that there is no air conditioning (at least not in our bungalow). I don't think this is a problem for a lot of people and there are breezes generally. But just an FYI.

Room Tip: I would imagine rooms that are higher up may get a better breeze than those down low. The windmill r...
