Someone I know wrote me a review of a short break he enjoyed in Speyside. He stayed at the Country Haven Guest House. He described it as “basic but totally adequate”. He complained about service at the Blue Waters (I admit that some of the bar and waiting staff tend to have po-faces, but are great once you break the ice) and said that he had the worst meal on Tobago at the Manta Lodge. However, he ended by saying “what a discovery the Speyside Inn was. The food, service and hospitality was excellent”. This is my only knowledge of the Speyside Inn.
Yes, you could walk from the Speyside Inn to the Blue Waters, but it would take 15-20 minutes I guess. A large percentage of people visiting Speyside are divers, so every hotel/guesthouse tends to be affiliated with a dive shop and the larger places have dive shops on the premises. I know nothing about diving, so can’t comment really, but I understand that AquaMarine Dive, who are based at the Blue Waters Inn, are a PADI Gold Palm operation and reputedly very good.
Yes, you could stay at Speyside Inn or Country Haven and walk or taxi to the Blue Waters Inn and loaf your days away perfectly safely and in comfort and without pestering. I’m sure Blue Waters wouldn’t mind you using their hotel and beach facilities if your partner is diving with AquaMarine Dive.
