This was our first visit to Barbados and to the Island Inn Hotel and sadly we were disappointed as it wasn't what we expected. We went there for my birthday and it wasn't the best birthday I have had. Upon arrival the reception area is very dark and dismal and has no air con so it was stifling. The lounge... More

Visited this hotel for the first time this year. We loved the old colonial building. We loved the small and friendly atmosphere. Everything is on one level. Our room was amazing. We were only 2 minutes from the beach. We used the local boogie bus to get around. The general atmosphere from everyone in Barbados was warm and friendly

Just had 11 nights at Island Inn and very pleased with the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms and hotel very clean, food mostly very nice. Small and friendly hotel with bags of charm....very close to lovely Pebbles Beach and a good base to explore. Great value for money.

I chose this hotel because it was small and all of the rooms were on the ground floor. However the floor outside was bricks and it was very uneven and I did trip. The air conditioning was not working in our room. I ran a bath and the plug stuck so I could not empty it or have a shower... More

We have just returned from a lovely week at the Island Inn. It is ideal if you want a quiet week. Excellent food, very friendly staff. The hotel is in a lovely position - 2 minutes walk from Pebbles Beach and a short stroll from the Garrison area, which makes a very interesting early morning walk. I do agree with... More
