Negative Points: the accommodation is old and close to a road. Ask for the most distant rooms. Positive points: the accommodation is 50 meters from a beautiful beach with a good bar/restaurant, and bus stops. It is very convenient ! The owners are very pleasant people.

The studios are close to the road but are air conditioned, we have not had many complaints, in these 2 studio apartments we have the desk chairs collectors items from Checkers. imported many years ago. We have had many positive comments since the beach development and the new road, Thanks for your comments With thanks Andrea Worrell

Love the island life!

Pros: It was quiet
Location: My location was close to the beach, Bridgetown and St. Jame. My favorite place was St. James because ones could attend to the in/outdoor activities
The island is beautiful and I cannot wait to return for a second trip!! Flash Zone had the best food with all the great spices!!!

Nice apartment close to the beach

Posted Jan 18, 2018
This apartment is located next to a beach which is always quiet and have a lovely picnic area. You can get the government yellow and blue bus from right outside the apartment and this can take you direct to Bridgetown. There is also an Esso petrol station about 3 mins walk away which sells a fair bit of things and if you like chicken there is a chicken shop opposite this where you can get your meal and sandwiches as well. The accommodation is quite comfortable and the staff are all lovely, approachable and very helpful. The accommodation can do with a bit updating but it has all the necessary things needed to get you by.

Pros: Close to a lovely beach and on the main road so transportation is easily accessible.
Cons: Needs a spruce up
Location: Very close to University campus
Must have been a lovely facility once upon a time but now everything is run down. Old furniture, old tv, old beds with old linen etc etc

I am surprised at this, we have had no complaints, an Expedia guest here now did not seem to know what he wanted, even at the University he did not seem to know what was required. For requirements here at the Lodge, we offer to take him to the Supermarket, here we are a self catering accommodation

Pros: the home away from home feeling

the owners and staff were very welcoming and made our stay comfortable, the beach has become more accessible because a road has been cut right next to Walmer Lodge

Time in Barbados

Posted Aug 14, 2016 on Hotels
Elroy and his wife were very helpful and friendly. The downside to staying here is the location is not around shops or restaurants however, the bus stop was right out front. Within walking distance to a nice local beach that was enjoyed every evening. The noise from the street can be prevented with earplugs.

Great For the Price

Posted Jun 29, 2016 on Hotels
Evidently, what you think of this hotel depends on what you want. I almost passed on this because of the fair to poor reviews, and I am so glad that I went with my gut and decided to stay here. Let's start with the only negative. If you are driving, DO NOT go by google maps. They will send you to the wrong place. Go to the last roundabout, and instead of taking the first exit, take the third. Find the Esso station (even if you use google maps) and they will give you directions. However, if you find the Esso, the hotel will be right up the street on the left. You can barely see the hotel's sign from the Esso. This hotel was exactly what was needed. It was one of the cheapest available, and much cheaper than the "western" hotels. The hotel is a bit dated, but that is part of its charm. It looks very Barbadian, and had a "native" air that was perfect. Hotel rooms have full kitchen, free wifi and American cable. It is also less than 50 yards/50 metres from the beach. Some have complained about the traffic noise. Yes, the hotel is on a major route by the coast. If you decide not to rent a car, it seems that a bus goes by every 2-3 minutes. You're just a few miles from downtown Bridgetown, and not much farther from the shopping at Holetown. You could definitely do worse than this hotel. I'm not sure I could have done better than finding this hidden gem.
