I have just returned from a week at the lamblion guest apartment The owners are very freindly and made me feel like i was at home, I have never experienced such friendly service before. The website for this accommodation does it no justice, i was worried that the price was too cheap and the place would be a shambles, so therefore only reserved one night. The accommodation was excellent and we in fact stayed for 7 days.
On arrival we were given a free complimentary bottle of champage and was able to purchase small grocery items due to arrivng late at night. The owners also let us use a laptop which had unlimted internet access and a mobile phone these were given to us free of charge.
As the accommodation is not in the heart of St Johns we also rented a car from the owners who were able to provide me with an international driving license for a fee of £10 which is valid for 3 months. Lamblion is in the middle of the island so you can get to most parts by car within 20 mins. It is not in a tourist area and a few of the apartments are rented to students and working locals. Which is great,as for me there is nothing worst than being surrounded by tourist on holiday. There is a bus service which takes you to town and of course you can aleays get a taxi.
As we was there for the sailing week which was not planned there was alot to do on the island many beach parties and free events.
We stayed next door to the owners which was fine as it was me and a friend I woud suggest a couple to opt for a different apartment as the walls are quiet thin. We requested two single beds which were very comfortable. The apartments are fully furnished and have whirlpool fridges, cooker and basic cooking untensils. The living room and kithcen is combined in to one but there is plenty of room. The living room has a sofa bed which can sleep 2 people. The Bedroom has cable tv ,alarm radio with built in wardrobes and chester draws. The bathroom has a nice shower which is very spacious. I only realised there was a wash room at the back of our apartments on the day we left where we was able to wash our clothes. Tokens can be purchased from the owners at a very cheap price.
We decided to eat local to get the real feel of the St Lucians I would reccommend spliffs which has lovely food for lunch and barbeques in the evening form 7pm. The price is very good we paid apx £4 for our lunch meals which included fresh fish, rice, saiad and a drink Roti King also have good rotis and Joes in town do good breakfast ( but you need to get there early as it sells out fast) lunch and dinner if your get your food in a take away box you can eat in store and it saves you money .
We paid £300 for the week for 2 adults which included a car and airport pick up and drop off.
Overall I would say this is probably the best guest house I have stayed at and I am extremely fussy! Perhaps not the most convenient if all you want to be mixing with tourist, but if you want to mix with locals and want great clean reasonably priced accomoodation then Lamblion is ideal.
