Description: Located in historic Bathsheba on the rugged east coast of Barbados, Round House has been a popular destination for locals and visitors alike for over 100 years. Built in the early 1800’s, the property offers commanding views of the entire Atlantic coast, a unique scenic environment and an undisturbed stretch of beach studded with natural tidal pools located just a one-minute walk down the sand to "Soup Bowl", one of the world's premier surf spots.Round House houses a historic inn featuring four architecturally-unique rooms with unparalleled views, and a bustling restaurant and bar serving Continental Caribbean cuisine with indoor and outdoor seating and some of the best views on the island. With its unique history, great food, friendly people and mellow vibe, Round House is a locals' favourite year-round and the spot frequent travelers to the island return to again and again to be greeted like old friends... with its unique hilltop perch providing a breathtaking panorama of Bathsheba and its pounding surf, it is also a “must-do” part of every first-time visitor's Barbados experience.

We had booked for three nights, 30th December 2008 to 02nd January 2009, well advance (in March/April 2008).
The friendly local manager Ken told us - on the following morning after arrival - that the restaurant would not be opened on 31st December and 01st January. On returning from our day trip on 1st January we found our room had not been cleaned/serviced. We complained to the security man who was the only one present at the hotel. The next morning Ken informed us that the room cleaning and change of towels would only take place every other day. Somewhat not plausible as the first two days in the row the room had been cleaned. Maybe the advantage was that we, a couple 50 years of age, experienced in travelling and, yes, Germans, had the empty hotel for ourselves. The room - No. 3 - was small but rather clean and had everything necessary or usual for a simple budget hotel. In the shower there was some water available, maybe it is healthy not to use hot water.
But all in all the hotel is overpriced and not optimally lead.
Positive: The food in the restaurant - on the first evening we had the chance to sample the food - was very good, the staff friendly. The views to the sea and the surrounding is amazing.
