What a beautiful surprise to find when we arrived here that our modest but very comfortable "rooms at the Inn," included a most spectacular view! The Inn is located at the end of the road, so it's also very quiet and has a private feel to the accomodations. The hotel overlooks a beautiful cove where only steps from our door, I snorkeled at least twice a day without having to drive a car, or take a bus or a boat to get there! The hospitality and friendliness of our host, Suger, and his hard-working and dedicated staff made us feel immediately at home in St. Barth's, as well as comfortable knowing they were always there to help us with anything we needed, to include finding and returning to the States, my lost cell phone! If we weren't in the gorgeous water, on one of the many beautiful beaches or touring the island in the car which came with our reservations, we were relaxing on our lovely little balcony, which(along with the kitchenette) really make these accomodations a unique and appreciated value. We loved the trek(right from our front door) to the quiet and pristine Colombier Beach, which is well worth the hike, as well as the easy walks into the town of Flamands with its own picture perfect beach! Needless to say we eagerly look forward to returning to this little bit of paradise on earth! Thank you Suger for a most memorable week!

This is our 3rd trip to St. Barth and must say we have found the best place. Other reviews are correct in that it is nothing fancy, but it works. It is clean and in good condition. The view is amazing. Sugar is extremely friendly and informative. I loved loved loved the location. We hiked to Columbier every day - it's my favorite beach. For the price that this hotel offers, we can continue to make yearly trips back - thanks!

This hotel feels like your own private villa on st Bart's. It is not the most deluxe but, we love that all of the rooms have their own kitchenettes......so you can save a few euros not having to eat out all other time......and you can also get the most amazing epicerie at la petite Colombie bakery , yum!
The best part though is that the hotel is located at the end of the road, which then becomes a great hiking trail that takes you to the most lovely little private beach. Amazing. We would do this twice a day, so we had a great workout and did not have to deal with any crowds at any time.
I would love to see them replace the mattresses but otherwise, I highly recommend.

Stayed here from 3/27 to 4/2 2011 with my wife for our third trip to SBH.

We had a nice room, got a car included with our hotel room too. The room had a double and a singel bed, a large bathroom , lots of closet space, a terrace and a kitchen off the side of the terrace. we were on the top floor and had a spectacular view of the cove and the undeveloped hills and cliffs to our left. No TV....and I didn't miss it one bit. Nice breezes blow through at night. There was a good air conditioner to keep the room comfortable during the day.

There is a beautiful beach near this hotel called Columbier which you can only get to by foot or boat. The foot trail to get to Columbier starts about 100 yards from the hotel at the end of the road. Also, you have a 5 minute walk to Flamands Beach, which is one of the best on SBH. Also within a 5 minute walk is a small market that has everything you would need at prices that are just as good as the larger markets near the airport and in Lorient.

In the Petite Anse, there is a small beach area that can be very safe for children and the cove itself was perfect for snorkeling. Reefs and colored fish could easily be seen from my room.

Room staff was very prompt and courteous - and the room was always made immaculate every day. There was free wifi but the signal wasn't great - it was best accessed on the terrace and was enough to surf and check e-mail and stuff from my smartphone - but probably not quite strong enough for a VOIP call. A laptop might have better performace. There is wifi all over the island and various establishments, so that would be possible in other places.

In all, this was a great deal, great location and a seriously affordable option to visit the beautiful island of St Barts!

We spent 4 night at the auberge and really enjoyed it. The value for price is unbeatable in low season: 109 euros per night for a room with 2 full beds, kitchen, ocean view and a jeep! It's in a secluded and uncrowded area of St Barth and it's charming. If you are lucky you might encounter a turtle or an iguana.
The beach de la petite anse is absolutely lovely. the hotel is right next the start of the Colombier hike which takes 30 minutes, is easy and leads to another beautiful secluded beach.
Having a kitchen was great since restaurants are expensive in St barth.
The room aren't extremly big but it suffice.
Owner Suger Greaux was indeed as described in other reviews: friendly and welcoming.
I would definetely go back.

The view is the deal closer. Turquoise water in a protected inlet--no other major development seen from the balcony.Tucked away in one of the "nibbles" out of the croissant shaped island , Auberge is a refuge from the more glitsy and upscale part of the island. But since the island is so small you can hop into the action as needed. I could sit on the balcony all day and be content, which in the heat of the off season is a prudent choice. Stayed in an upper unit. Very simple, clean, albeit a tad dated. We used air conditioning to cool off the mid day extreme heat leftovers before opening the doors at night to the breeze and sounds of the ocean directly below. The kitchen is off the balcony and has a small stove , coffee maker, full fridge, sink and toaster as well as utensils, plates, etc. But it is a shame to cook when there is the exquisite cuisine in Gustavia or St Jean.

It is entertaining to watch the endless parade of locals using the little beach (2-3 at a time, for short periods, never crowded), and yet we also had times when we were completely alone. Night time soaks under the stars were a treat. Excellent snorkeling. For waves and expanses of sand, Flammand beach is a 5 minute walk. Or hike to Columbier from outside your door. . Spectacular.

Sugere, the proprietor,whose father built the Auberge in the fifties, is gently welcoming and accommodating. Because of the off season, a rental car cost was included. The heat is impressive in June. High season, even without a car would be the preferred time.
