Gordian Terrace
Ranked #2 of 3 Virgin Gorda B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 May 2014

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.

Lauralee was simply wonderful. She met me at the ferry and arranged for a rental car. She was also kind enough to allow a super late check out to help my travel schedule. She goes above and beyond for her guests. Room was large and spacious. Location: very close to Leverick.

Wifi was a bit spotty at times (but you're on vacation and shouldn't be on wifi anyways!) :) Virgin Gorda was beautiful to drive around and explore.

The view from our private balony was perfect. This was my home away from home. Thumbs up to Lauralee, she made us feel at home. The island is also beautiful with all of those wonderful friendly people. This mini vacation to Virgin Gorda was our first, but it sure will not be our last, God willing.

Words cannot begin to describe the experience we had in Virgin Gorda.

My beau and I decided to take a mini vacation/weekend getaway and chose Virgin Gorda due to its close proximity to our hometown(s) St. Thomas, VI and St. Croix, VI. I started the research via Expedia for a place to stay and found Gordian Terrace as one of the options. I had numerous questions and called the hotel directly. After one conversation with Lauralee, I was sold on Gordian Terrace. Lauralee kept in contact with us up until the day of our arrival, gave ferry suggestions, inquired if there were any special needs we had, arranged for a rental car and assured us all would be ready upon our arrival.

When we arrived at the dock in Virgin Gorda, Lauralee met us along with her son. She had previously reserved the rental car, so while we awaited the arrival of the car, she spent a little time getting to know us and making us feel right at home.

Upon the arrival of our vehicle, her son (Jahseim), rode along with us and served as a tour guide which was very, very helpful, since we would be driving by ourselves the following day. He even gave restaurant recommendations and informed us what to see and do while we stayed in Virgin Gorda.

Upon arrival to the condo, Ms. Lauralee was there to greet us and get us settled, while her son took our bags and got us settled in. The condo was immaculate and was all that we expected and more. The amenities listed were available and we had no issues or concerns. The view from our third floor condo was to die for. The maid service was impeccable.

During our stay, Gordian Terrace was our home away from home.....we loved it, loved it, loved it and will stay there again any time we visit Virgin Gorda again. Thank you to Lauralee and her staff for making our stay in Virgin Gorda a most pleasant experience.

Recommend you visit, call or stop by Gordian Terrace, you won't be disappointed.

The owner of Gordian Terrace is now a member of our extended family......we have made a friend for life. Thank you Lauralee for all that you did and we wish you continued success in all that you do......Gordian Terrace was definitely the "Most Pleasant Experience" ever.

I am so grateful for Laura V and the entire staff that helped us on out trip. Truly caring and wonderful people that went out of their way for us. Virgin Gorda is one of the most beautiful spots in the Caribbean, the people are exceptionally friendly and the staff of this hotel, in particular, made it their job to make us comfortable and bring us into their world.
Thank you,

This was the first time my husband and I visited this Island. The entire booking process was pleasant. Lauralee the owner contacted my husband several times as the date of arrival approached. She offered to buy our groceries, and asked if we wanted anything in particular in our room prior to arrival. We were greeted at the airport and taken to the guest house as per Lauralee's instructions. The ride to the guest house offered a wonderful view and glimpse of the Island. Once we arrived we were "awed" by the cleanliness of the property. We were greeted by Lauralee, she gave us a little tour of the room and asked several times if we needed anything else.

We stayed up stairs and the view overlooking the ocean was spectacular. We really enjoyed the balcony and all the windows overlooking the ocean and surrounding areas. She assured us the area was safe so we slept with our windows open and enjoyed the fresh air daily rather than use the a/c. The room was so comfortable and clean we felt like we were at home. It was a full house with all its amenities and comfort of home. The décor in the rooms was so beautiful that we are making arrangement with her to help us purchase some for our home. During our stay she text my husband several times to see if we needed anything although she give us so many information and ideas as to what to do while we were there.
She stayed in contact to make sure our stay was pleasant but at the same time she kept a distance to ensure our privacy. Room service was available as needed and of course they did a wonderful job in respecting our privacy/stay.
Next time we return to this Island we'll make sure we stay at this place again. Would you believe that the night prior to us leaving Lauraless came personally to wish us a safe return and even brought us a freshly baked pie. It was like staying with family where else can we have that kind of treatment?
The Island itself is beautiful with so many things to see and do. The place called the baths and the cave was the highlight of our stay on the Islands. The local food was also good, and the people was unbelievably friendly and helpful. I must say I envy them for living on such a beautiful Islands. Thank you Lauralee.

My wife and I spent one of the nights of our recent honeymoon at Gordian Terrace and truly enjoyed the experience. Lauralee provided excellent service even during the reservation process, also reserving a rental car for us. She met us at the dock in Spanish Town when we arrived by ferry with the rental car and then had us follow her to the Gordian Terrace. The room was comfortable, the view of North Sound spectacular and the recommendations are points of interest as well as restaurants was spot on! She even told us how to hike up to the top of Gorda Point for a magnificent 360 degree view of the island. We would highly recommend the Gordian Terrace for anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of Virgin Gorda!
