Golden Thistle Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion

I stayed at the Golden Thistle Hotel for a couple of days and I was comfortable. The facility is literally ten minutes walk from the airport and the beach; there are convenience shops, a shopping plaza and vehicle rentals close by. The pool, grounds and surroundings were well kept and cleaned daily. Staff was pleasant and accommodating, I will be staying at the Golden Thistle Hotel on my next visit to Tobago.

This hotel is a total disappointment. The rooms are very small and furnished just minimally. There were cockroaches. The pool was small and was heated at night, not because it was heated but because it was that small. Dont waste your time staying here unless you want a disappointment. Will never return or recommend to others.

My sons and I stayed at Golden Thistle Hotel over the Christmas period and experienced one of the best holidays we had in a while. The rooms were well kept daily, and our kitchenettes were very equipped. They catered for our privacy, comfort,great accommodation and serenity.My boys enjoyed every moment of the swimming pool which was cleaned on a daily basis therefore making it such an attraction to them.We learned that management was pretty new and have done a lot to enhanced the hotel. It was our first time there and intend of coming again because now we know where i can find a clean, friendly and very affordable accommodation.

I stayed at the Golden Thistle in October 2006 and I thought that it was a beautiful place to stay. It was away from all the hustle and bustle and cars and noise, yet it was only 5 mins away from the Airport LITERALLY !! My boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised. We learnt that it was under new Management and the price Of course helped us do other things that we really wanted to do. The Kitchenette was sufficient but we hardly cooked anyway!
We thought it was lovely and would recommend it to anyone who is on a tight budget, but still want somewhere decent to stay! Thanks Golden Thistle!

The night before arriving in Tobago, I called the hotel to ask a couple of questions. I thought that was the time to tell me that there was a power outage scheduled for the following day. When we got there, out rooms were not ready and we couldn't even use the toilet because there was not power to operate the water pumps. The manager was unconcerned and unwilling to give us any type of compensation. For a business based on 'your customer' we were greated as if we were an inconvenience to them at the time. They had a schedule and information on thier cleaning posted in the room. Well, the beds did get made, but for the 4 days we were there, they never changed the sheets. Their "fully equipped kitchenette" was only half equipped to say the least. Tobago was wonderful, but maybe find somewhere else to stay.
