My wife and I loved our two-week stay at Gloucester Place – it offered us peacefulness combined with all the services and assistance we could ever have wanted. It’s quite exclusive – not surprising as it’s so small - and patrons are quickly treated as friends. Our hosts were gracious, welcoming and informative and nothing was too much trouble. Although classified as a guesthouse the facilities are equivalent to a 3 or 4 star hotel, except that there is no restaurant: the rooms are comfortable and well-equipped.

The gardens are full of tropical plants and birds, which makes them a wonderful place to relax, and the infinity pool is a knockout feature. The location is exceptional and it’s well removed from the hustle and bustle of the touristy developments to the south of the island. The local beaches, the coastline and the fishing villages are fascinating and so is the tropical forest, which is easily accessible. We hired a car for our stay, which is probably a good idea as this is the easiest way to see the local attractions, and the hills are steep. We would love to go back……..
