A bit overcharged, but otherwise quite nice. The room was very clean and had the best AC we came across during the three weeks we were travelling around trinidad and tobago. They don't provide any food, and that's a bit inconvenient since there are more or less no shops in speyside.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 days.. A very comfortable place with basic necessities.. A well equipped kitchenette with a great working ac unit.. the bed was quite comfy as well. The hill coming up to the place was quite steep but the exercise was well welcomed. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood, we felt very safe and at... More

Friendly and helpful owners. Basic but adequate facilities with good (and very necessary) air con. Seating on balcony in full sun for most of the day meant it wasn't feasible to sit outside and there were no seats in the room. Basic kitchenette facilities for making tea/coffee. 15 minute walk into the main part of the village, with very steep... More

The accommodations were bright and clean. AC worked well and was very quiet. We enjoyed our trip to Little Tobago with Troy and had plenty of time on the island with... More

We stayed at room 5 at Top Ranking for 5 nights in the end of December 2013. It was a good stay, the room was nice and everything in it - though simple - was just what we needed for a diving holiday accommodation. The kitchenette did not have very much in it but the basic necessities. The balcony is... More

My husband and I rented a scooter by the airport and we toured the island of Tobago. This guesthouse was perfect for us....located on top of the mountain with a perfect view of the ocean and rainforest.we loved the wake up call from the parrots. It was clean, affordable and the hostess very friendly. Therese

While not luxurious, Top Ranking Guesthouse is a great economical alternative to the fancy Blue Waters Inn down the road. Basic, clean accommodations in separate cabin rooms climbing up the hillside. The bathroom was separated from the rest of the room by a wall which did not go all the way up to the open ceiling, making for limited privacy.... More

Accom was basic, no AC, no mossie nets, no fly screen on windows or door which almost made it impossible to sleep in the wet season. Very dissapointed with the tour to Little Tobago by Top Ranking by Troy which lasted approx one hour as opposed to promised 2.5hr trip. Seemed to us that the tour guide was more interested... More
