Golden Thistle Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Ksingh from Trinidad visited in April 2012 and awarded  One out of Five

Just got back from what should have been a holiday in Golden Thistle Hotel and I absolutely CANNOT RECOMMEND THAT PLACE TO ANYONE! My recommendation is that the Tobago House of Assembly set up some sort of assessment board to ensure that the quality promised in brochures and websites is accurate! It was horrid and I feel robbed! Bockety fridge, a cramped tiny room, mildewed dishcloth, dingy old towels, pillows that were lumpy and dead, a smelly blanket, househelp that merely remade beds and swept, dishes left in sink, microwaves offered only if one rented it in addition to what was paid for the room, water problems, tableware looked like scrap ends from a garage sale, nothing matched and everything was very old and heavily used in addition to being an exact two in number of each. Certainly not what was promised nor what I expected when I paid down. The brochure and website heavily misrepresents what is actually there! Hospitality was missing. Not even a bit of diswashing detergent to wash the dishes and matches to light the stove were not provided unless one bought them from the hotel restaurant. The ambience is depressing and somewhat survivalist. I was deeply disappointed and swore that I won't be back in Tobago in a hurry. I stayed in Rm 54 even though I paid extra for a poolside room and was promised thus over the phone and it was absolutely awful, all the worse, because it was the Easter Weekend and I couldn't get another place to move to and was forced to endure as best as I could...I refused to stay in Tobago a moment longer than I had to and caught a flight on standby 5-6hours earlier than I was supposed to leave. Disgusting and I'm thoroughly disgusted!

Kelli from U.S.A. visited in February 2012 and awarded  One out of Five


My stay here was suppose to be 3 days and 2 nights but it turned into 1 day and 1 night because I GOT ROBBED! It was the worst thing that ever happend to me in my life. I came outside at night on my front porch to enjoy the night and a man with a mask and a huge knife in his hand came up to me, took me in the room where my brother and sister were, told us to face down on the bed and took all our money and belongings. We were left with our clothes only. When the man left we contacted the people that own the place and they did nothing...nothing at all, not even call the police for us. We contacted the police by calling a family memeber in Trinidad, to call the police for us. The phones in the room was not working and there were NO securety, NO cameras, Nothing. The place was not safe at all. They have people watching your every move and preying on tourist. [size= I DO NOT ADVISE ANYONE TO STAY AT THIS HOTEL EVER. PLEASE HEAR ME NOW...DO NOT STAY HERE, THIS COULD BE YOU AND IT COULD BE WORST THAN MY EXPERIENCE.

Great place if you want to relax,perfect location.Spent 23-28 Dec there with my hubby and 3 kids.Had a problem with my Wi-Fi and the manager took the time to deal with it by providing a connection during my stay(thanks again).Clean rooms,pool,loved the birds,kids were able to run around the courtyard.Walking distance to casino,bank,beaches,restaurants,car rental,supermarket,fresh fruit stall.

The staff was friendly and helpful,the bath is a bit high to get into(had to lift the kids in).The food was tasty.Home away from home,will stay here again.

Michelle Tobay from Trinidad visited in August 2011 and awarded  Five out of Five

My sis, daughter and I checked in on August 18, approximately 5:30 pm. There were lots of guests checking in also. Although a bit time consuming, Michael was very patient and dealt personally with every guest. I think this was fabulous, as customers are looking for the personal touch, being couteous, pleasant and warm. Anything that is needed is addressed by Michael. Having the experience myself, everything about this trip was positive. My view is, you can't please each customer taste and value differ.

I just want to share the great moment, nothing short of fantastic. The rooms were well kept, clean and fully air conditioned, mini kitchen and hygenic bathroom. I have no regrets for checking in at the Golden Thistle which I understand is one of the earliest hotels set up in Tobago. If you want to have a quiet scenic time in the Sister's Isle, then Golden Thistle is what you're looking for.
