I stayed at the South Gap Hotel for 8 nights in Oct 2008 with 2 friends.
We choose the hotel as we were going to Barbados on a budget and only paid £174 each for room only!
For the price I wasnt sure what to expect but the rooms were lovely, very clean and welcoming with nice decor. We had a kitchen area which was great, it had a kettle, toaster, microwave and cooker.
The Balcony was a sea view and was just great to sit on in the evening and have a few rums while looking out at the beautiful ocean.
The staff were very welcoming and always happy to help. I cut my finger quite badly one night and they were great and assisted with calling a doctor and explianing all options avaliable to me. It is a friendly hotel.
The pool was average, not the nicest pool area I have seen in barbados but still nice and I have no complaints.
The restaurant was being refurbished during our stay so we were unable to visit there.
The only shame about the hotel was that there was no beach access but it was only a short walk down the road.
There is a small convienance store nearby which is great for getting food etc....
Or if you want to eat out, I would throughly recommend eating at McBrides, its an irish pub and the food was amazing!! The irish stew was so good and the fish dishes were fresh and very tasty. We always make sure to visit!
The best thing about the South Gap was the location - right in the heart of the Gap. This was excellent for us as we love the nightlife in barbados - it really is second to none!!!!
I am heading back to Barbados in July and will be staying at an all inclusive hotel as this is easier for us but I would stay at The South Gap hotel if travelling on a budget again!!!!
I cannot wait to return to this fabulous island for the 6th time!!
