“One Night Stand”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We used the Galleon House B&B to tie us over from a late flight in order to connect with the BVI water taxi the next day. Everyone must judge an experience based on their needs at the time, in this case our needs were satisfied. The location was interesting and the unit very basic. It was clean and the shower water was hot. We left early in the morning and missed the complementary breakfast. We had an interior rom without windows and knew that in advance.

Room Tip: I recommend selecting an room with windows if you are staying more than one night.

My husband and I had the great pleasure of staying at the Galleon House for 3 nights in May.
Chris was an amazing host and Gail made us feel right at home. We had a mix up in our plans for our boat out of Road Town and needed to stay an extra night, no problem for Gail, they were booked but she got us a reservation right next door at the Bunker Hill Hotel which was wonderful too. Gails rum punch was excellent and got us into vacation mode right away. We met some wonderful people there and can't wait to go back. You must check out Gail's beautiful sea glass jewelry that she makes and sells there. We were prepared for the stairs and they are not that bad, just think about what lies up them and you will be fine. The breakfast was perfect also. Thanks Chris and Gail for a great beginning and ending to our trip. John and Dianna

Room Tip: Go for the Harbor view rooms with the private balconys they are a great price. The view was amazing...

We booked Galleon House as our last stop after a week charter in teh BVI. We liked the cozniess of the accomodations and the historic nature of the location however we didn't love the dead and smeared mosquitoes along the walls of our room, #303.

Despite closing the window, sealing the gap along the exterior door with towels and turning off the air conditioner we still ended up with at least 5 mosquitoes in our room which was annoying and made for a fitful sleep.

Our host recommended the adjacent restaurant, Sugar Cane Grill, which was very nice. Possibly some of the best food we had on our holiday.

Overall, I wouldn't stay again but I do see the appeal for some guests - just not my cup of tea.

Just returned from staying here before and after a BVI cruise. What a great find! Chris and Gail went out of their way to help us enjoy St. Thomas- recommending restaurants, lending an umbrella, setting up a taxi tour, cooking a great breakfast, making rum punch, loaning people books. What a great place. I would highly recommend, except when we want to go back. Don't take our room!

We only stayed a day and night but had a great time! There is a bunch of stairs but it is well worth the walk up. The hotel has a beautiful view of the city. Shops and places to eat are within walking distance. I loved the atmosphere of the hotel and the people working there were awesome! I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I stayed one night after a week sailing in the BVI. I had read the reviews, and knew what to expect. Yes there are a lot of stairs, but it's not Mt. Everest. Our room was on the veranda level, was clean, the AC worked great, our only complaint was a lack of hot water in the shower, but having just spent a week on a sailboat with the same problem, we were used to it.
Now let's talk about Gale, what a gem she is! Great help on a resturant for dinner, transportation to the airport, and everything else. Her Rum Punch is wonderful! Breakfast was great!
Don't let the steps keep you from this neat B&B!

Funky and Fun with Fabulous service! Ms. Gayle is a delight and made our stay at Galleon House delightful! From delivery of her famous rum punch pool side, her beautiful smile and helpful tips, to the perfect morning breakfast, we enjoyed our stay and her commitment to the guests!
We liked that the Galleon had an awesome view but was still close enough to talk in to town.
Clean room too!

Room Tip: The bay view room was worth the extra expense
