“18th Century Life as a Plantation Owner”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This house has been restored to its original state, showing how the Plantation owner & family lived in past years. Life must have been very luxurious compared to that of the workers who at one time numbered over 200. As part of an island tour lunch was included, which was an excellent Caribbean Buffet in a seating area overlooking the back gardens.

“Bah humbug to nay sayers”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I had a very nice time looking aound Sunbury. It was pouring that day and a good place to get out of the rain. Didn't see the garens but was told I could come back when it wasn't so inclement! Great! The buffet looked great and if I hadn't gone to the Atlantis I believe I would have been happy eating there. For 10$ usd I felt the money well-spent. I learned something and enjoyed the camera and optician room. I will return to see the garden!

“History and a nice lunch”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We visited here and had a lovely time. The house is quite eerie as so well preserved. We also had a lovely carribean lunch afterwards.

“Interesting old house”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a nice step back in time. The interior of the building has numerous antiques. Worth visiting, if you have some extra time. They also serve a Bajan buffet lunch.

“Just ok”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We went there during a tour around the island; we had a little tour of the house upon arrival and then we had lunch there (buffet). The place is nice, it gives you an idea of how was life back then in Barbados, but it wasn't really special, neither was the food. Go if you feel like, but it isn't a "must do".
