Set on a pristine stretch of white sand on Barbados’ West Coast, The House is the beachside version of a hip downtown hotel. On a design front its combination of smooth lines of teak, curved lanterns and modern lighting set a mood that is suitably exotic. Yet it’s a beautifully intimate place with plenty of privacy for romantic dining. For food lovers The House itself may be one of the best hunting grounds on the island, because the most acclaimed addition to the Barbados restaurant scene is the adjacent Daphne’s. Located bang on the beach, this satellite of the famous London restaurant serves a metropolitan version of Italian dishes, with an emphasis on seafood and is regarded by many as better than the original. Let your Hotel Ambassador organise your arrival massage, a round of golf at nearby Sandy Lane, spa treatments in a beachside cabana or next door at the sister property, Tamarind or try your hand at the complimentary water sports. The service extends down to the beach and The Deck with complimentary afternoon tea and Daphne’s all-day dining menu.

My husband and I have recently returned from 10 days at The House and we both agree it is the best high end boutique hotel on the island. From the moment we arrived we where made to feel relaxed and... Read more at home and the Ambassadors cater for your every need and are superbly managed by Joanna the Manager. The champagne breakfast is a real incentive to get up early and spend the rest of the day been pampered as they offer complimentary ice cream, fruit, water and cold flannels and even clean your sunglasses. Special attention must be made of Joanna the Manager who runs a terrific team including Andrew, Alvin, Kerrie, Jefferson, Agnes, Alana these are just a few of the great team. Do not forget to have the complimentary jet lag massage we had Tonya who is wonderful. The House is well located for the best restaurants on the island and a bus stop can be found right out side. We stayed in room 371 which is a One Bedroom Ocean View Suite which has a separate lounge and 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies and the views where breath taking. We are going back even if we have to sell body parts! Barry & Janet Read less

We have just returned from 8 nights at The House and have to say it's one of the best guest houses we've ever stayed in. Must mention the following staff: Jefferson, Diana, Andrew, Kerrie, Agnes... Read more , Christopher & Ricardo. All on hand and nothing too much trouble at all. Mustn't forget my little friend Ginger the house cat who is just adorable! Breakfast was delicious and we loved all the little extras throughout the day from cold face cloths to afternoon tea. Thank you so so much for making our holiday so perfect. We will def be back!

The House is a wonderful boutique hotel. You really do feel at home and very comfortable from the moment you walk in. We chose an ocean front suite which was situated above the breakfast/bar area... Read more and never once were we disturbed by any noise; either in the evening or early in the morning. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with a large bathroom with robes, slippers, Elemis products and plenty of white fluffy towels. There are a few restaurants within walking distance to the hotel but many more within a 5/10 minute taxi ride. We used the yellow bus on a few occasions during the day to pop into Holetown; the bus stop is right outside the hotel. Just ask the guys on the bus to tell you where to get off if you are not familiar with the area. When we were around the hotel we spent our time between the beach and the pool. The sunbeds are the most comfortable we have ever used; especially around the pool. There are little treats brought round in the morning and afternoon which was very nice. The breakfast is wonderful and you are spoilt for choice. I did try to say no to the Champagne on a couple of occasions but failed miserably. We had some lunches in the hotel and on a couple of evenings we decided not to go out and had light bites; the food was very good. The staff and the rest of the team really are the loveliest people you could wish to meet both from a friendly and professional perspective. When we came down to the bar in the evening our favoured drink was chilling in an ice bucket ready for us. If we wanted anything booked or enquired about anything we just left it in their capable hands. You really are fabulous. I really can't wait to return. Read less
