Mary's Hill Lodge - Reader Reports & Opinion
Martin Varga from Barbados visited in December 2011 and awarded
A very good experience. Pool excellent, washing machine a good plus.
A little disappointed that there were no signs to guide us off the road as it took some finding. Even the locals were unsure of its location.
Other than that I will be booking again when my travels take me back to Tobago.

We had a long weekend stay and both my friends wanted to leave when they saw there was no A/C but after looking around and getting a feel for the place they were very pleased. I myself was extremely pleased. We had our own private pool and the place was very secure. The driveway was under construction but when that is done Mary hill will be able to give anyone looking for a getaway exactly what they are looking for. I only hope that it remains affordable. I most certainly will return

Before I booked Mary's Hill Lodge I read the few reviews I found and looked forward to staying there. We were very disappointed when we arrived.
All I can say is if you are going to book this cottage you must realise it is VERY basic. I did wonder, when looking back at the reviews, if we had gone to the same cottage!
The kitchen and sitting area are open on one side so expect dust in both of those areas and some insects (we expected that so it wasn't a real problem). The kitchen sink is actually outside the building, the cooker rusty and pots and pans basic.
The master bedroom and shower room are very simple and are open at the roof so can be chilly. The other two rooms are even more so.
The cottage is on a main road which can be busy and noisy. It is among the village so you can hear music from other houses. The garden is on a slope with steep steps and needs new sun loungers.
Mary's Hill Lodge was not sutable for us so we left the next day. I was in touch with the owner who was helful and said she would make several changes to the house so hopefully some of our problems will now have been solved. Just be aware before you book that this is a rustic holiday let.

We stayed in Mary's Hill Lodge for three weeks with our two-year-old son and just loved it here. The house is incredible and the feeling of living among the treetops with the birds is wonderful. Despite the 'open' feeling of the house, we didn't feel that we'd missed any luxuries that you'd find in a hotel. In fact, staying here felt like being at home away from home and it was lovely to come back to the house each day after being at the beach or out and about - so much better than staying in an apartment or hotel room. The owners had thought of everything to make our stay there perfect - from the little torch on the house keys for when we got back in the dark to the two-level shower, which our toddler found great fun (despite hating showers at home!). This was our first visit to Tobago but it won't be our last -largely thanks to having stayed in Mary's Hill Lodge. If you're looking for a gorgeous, family-friendly place to stay, which is set back from the bustle but still close enough to everything you could want, this is it. We will definitely be going back.
