We needed a room for a couple of days prior to meeting friends and moving into a villa for a week. The Gordian Terrace served the purpose to a tee. Upon arrival Lauralee met us with the key, filled us in on the property and gave a few tips on what to do on the island and where to eat. Lauralee is a gracious host who was genuinely pleased we had chosen her hotel to stay at.
The rooms are actually suites, the bedroom is more than spacious, there is a fully equipped kitchen, a large living space, a washroom and a small sitting deck. The room is simple but perfectly workable.
The hotel is on a hillside facing the Atlantic Ocean enabling it to take advantage of the on shore breeze which provides a source of natural ventilation. Necessary for us folks from the northern climes. Even though the hotel is situated next to the main road it is very quiet and we slept very well.
I do not own an air conditioner and often have a battle to make them work when I encounter one on holidays. I could not get this one to work, when I mentioned it to Mary, the housekeeper, she ran into the same problem. We went out for a couple of hours, Mary got hold of the repair person and it was fixed before we returned.
Being far from most amenities you will require a car, but unless you are staying at an all inclusive type resort and not venturing out you will need a car on this island anyway.
I like this hotel and it would definitely be high on the list of places to stay if I return to Virgin Gorda.
