“Small and Intimate, A Perfect Getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was my 3rd time staying at the Round House. I decided to take a trip by myself for my Birthday this year and it was perfect. The food is great, staff friendly, attentive and fun! This is a laid back down to earth Inn. No Television, no A/C, who needs it, you are on vacation to relax. They do offer free WIFI. I ended up staying in 3 out of the 4 rooms, my choice, and a storm back home enabled me to stare in my 3rd room. My favorite room is Room 3, the views are spectacular of the famous Soup Bowls. The beach is great, most likely you are the only one on it, the weekends get a bit more locals. What I like the most about the Inn, was the comfort of feeling like you are home, due to the staff. Love the owners! You are pretty secluded from much, so taxis or you own car are needed. Taxi's are readily available just ask. I felt safe, being a single traveler and can't wait to go again and visit.

Room Tip: Room 3 is my choice. Wooden shutters open up to view Soup Bowls and Wooden door opens up to the roo...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful inn! We loved every moment of it, the location was awesome!!! The ocean sound was beautiful any time of day or night! At night we opened the louvers and what a sound to fall asleep too. The view is gorgeous and mesmerizing! The beach is not for swimming but if your lucky enough to find a little swimming hole go for it!!! Actually, down on the beach to the right around the big rocks are some lovely pools to sit and wade just be careful and cautious of the pounding surf! Do not go beyond the pools it is dangerous!!! This inn was a true Bajan experience, room 3 was lovely, the skylight lightly gently lit our room at night! No air condition but the ocean breeze is constant and cools the room. We shall return to this lovely inn again! Try the bruschetta in the restaurant very nice!

The Round House is a truly special place. I've been dining here each time I've been to Barbados for many years...and finally decided to spend a night here this past February - was definitely a wise decision. I'd recommend staying in Room 4 if available - the privacy, view and peacefulness of the setting are definitely best enjoyed at the summit. The staff members are great and very gracious - I highly recommend Round House to anyone.

I have been here more than once and will stay here every time I go back to Barbados! As someone else said on here "It feels like home!", it's a family run business and they treat you like family! Everyone who works there are very polite and friendly.
Round House has the best views, with a one minute walk to the beach, and if I may say so, one of the best beaches in the world!! If you are a surfer, the famous Soup Bowl is right there, and is always filled with great locals from Bathsheba.
The building is older, but has a very artistic feel, and lots of character, which is great for travelers who like some history behind there vacation. The rooms are great, exactly what you need and always clean! If your looking for somewhere unique, this is the place to be! There is a restaurant which serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily with amazing fresh, local food!
All I have to say is you have to experience Round House and beautiful Bathsheba! I already booked my next trip!

We stayed for a few days in February, and enjoyed the character of the Roundhouse. The location is breathtaking, and the staff all worked very hard, both in the hotel and in the busy bar/restaurant. Although it is an older building and subject to the weathering caused by the endless sea breezes (which we found to be wonderful) our room was spotless on arrival, and was cleaned/refreshed every two days, which was plenty for our needs.The management readily answered any questions we had about the area, and was helpful in arranging transportation. The restaurant was very good, and the beach offered lots of opportunity for exploring. A great value for Barbados.

Room Tip: The budget rooms are on the small side. Room 4 is spacious with spectacular panoramic views and a pr...

If you wanna surf the Soupbowl and stay in a nice place with a good price, RoundHouse is the place to go. From everywhere in the House you can watch the break and have a great view of Bathsheba (speacially room 4), one of the most beautiful places in the island. The people from there have a good vibe and are really friendly as well, helping to have a more local experience. The restaurant is great also and, if you are travelling in a budget, there's also some good choices to find cheaper food along the main street. Spent good times there, recommend it for sure.

Once again, I have spent a week In Barbados at the Round House. You can go nowhere else in Bathsheba and find such wonderful staff and surroundings. It always feels like home when I am there!! I can walk down stairs and have breakfast, lunch & dinner for 7 days and enjoy somthing differant each day. The dessert each night tops the day. Wish I could live there year round
