“Clean with incredible hospitality”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at Round House the evenings of the 23rd and 24th of December. Barbados as a whole is pretty quiet on this end of the island because of the holiday, which is just what we wanted. Plenty of space and time for R&R. The east shore is known more for its surf and wind then it is for tourist filled beaches like the west shore. (Can't really wade out and swim on this side because the sandy beach goes into rocky reef. But there are still wading pools nearby and the cave flower attraction, wildlife reserve nearby as well as quite a few others.) While the weather was more tumultuous then the west side, we personally loved the beautiful, intense storms that blew through and watching the surfers while we strolled the beaches picking up a wide variety of shells and sea glass. We loved the home like atmosphere of Round House and the excellent, amicable care provided by Elise and Anna and all of the Round House staff. We were invited to their family christmas dinner which had an impressive spread of food and the familial atmosphere was delightful, especially during the holiday. We are into more laid back atmosphere's and definitely recommend Round House, especially for the holiday season. It was quiet, the views amazing and the people a delight to meet and get to know. We will definitely go back if we find ourselves in Barbados again!

My husband had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Round House. Everything was just as we imagined it would be and so much more. The views and the food at the Round House are wonderful. It was our favourite place on Barbados by far.

Room Tip: We loved the top floor. What's not to love with views like that.

The Roundhouse Inn is a one of a kind establishment. Whether your visiting for the restaurant & bar or staying in the rooms they offer your definitely going to enjoy yourself. Not to mention, the location of the Roundhouse is beautiful. Located atop a cliff, with a perfect birds eye view overlooking the coast of Bathsheba. My friends and I stayed here for 7 days and had the best time ever. Food was incredible, as well as their mixed drinks… The rooms are rather small, however the architecture and design is really cool and unique. All in all the Roundhouse is the place to be, whether it's for an appetizing entrée or a perfect get away vacay, Your going to leave smiling.

Room Tip: Choose room 4 if your wanting a spacious stay.

Totally agree review from heb999
Lunch time the place is buzzing, food very hit and miss At dinner seven possible choices of mains but alas only three available... The flying fish was so disappointing.....
The place really does need a good clean. The staff were friendly as we're the guests. The owners were more preoccupied with family matters and chatting to some other guests, obviously regulars. It gave the feeling that we were in the way.
But my biggest gripe would be how expensive this place is. We stayed in room three and our door was opened to show is the "shared" deck had two loungers both occupied, the foot bath pump pulled out and no water in it, so we retreated to our room. It was positively cold at night as we're the showers! I generally dislike leaving negative reviews but felt so disappointed.... Come on Roundhouse get a grip and maybe appoint a manager...

Room Tip: Don't bother, it's not worth the money :(

We went to lunch at the Round House. Although the staff were wonderful, and we were a table of 9. Our lunch turned into a 2+ hour event. This would have been fine, but given the fact that we obviously had a child with special needs some firm of accommodation could have been made. The food was very good and our waitress was very apologetic for the wait. The pulled pork is very good and I would definitely recommend it.

Most beautiful view in Barbados from their outside patio at ANY table. Excellent service and food is outstanding! It is worth the trip to the east coast (short trip on #6 bus from Bridgetown) to visit this incredible place. Don't miss a visit to Bathsheba and the Round House.

My husband, daughter and I visited the Round House for lunch whilst on holiday in Barbados in September 2013. It was recommended to us by fellow guests at the hotel we were staying at, and we were so glad that we went! My daughter and I had what we reckon was the best burger we have ever had - without exception! My topping of caramelised onions and stilton was amazing. The view it out of this world, food and service great, and the sound of the sea unbeatable! Definitely worth a trip - hire a car locally and "do" the island at the same time! The view from the cliffs nearby and watching the surfers out on the waves was fantastic, and you get to see the part of Barbados that ISN'T commercialised!
