We have been to St John many times and we have always loved it. We even like the funky & wild aspects, although the traffic & congestion can get a little overwhelming sometimes. This year we decided to try to save a little money and so booked "The Cottage" at Battery Hill. Not a good decision. The word is dingy. I could also say grimy, or shabby or soiled. The bedding was old, torn and worn out. I didn't even sit down on the cushions on the two chairs because they looked awfully dirty and yucky. The curtains were inadequate and so the room was lit up all night by exterior lighting. The Cottage was billed as a studio, but it was truly tiny. The bathroom wasn't clean, the fixtures were old and worn out. The floor was dirty, the corners had residue in them which might be remedied by a good cleaning, but it was disconcerting to live in. The towels were shabby and were not changed on the day they were supposed to be refreshed. The landscaping was lovely, the pool was very nice, and the walk up a steep hill from Cruz Bay was tough but invigorating. However, this place is a great advertisement for Gallows Point. Next time we will stay there and spend the extra money. It'll be worth it!
