South Gap Hotel
Show reviews that mention
we stayed at south gap hotel for 4 nights before joing our transatlantic cruise. having travellled from new zealand via los angeles we were in desperate need of a relaxing time. wonderful seaviews from largish balcony and french windows. comfortable beds and facilitiesfor cooking or heating food. very good restaurant at thishotel and the staff were most helpful in fulfilling our requests for snacks at irregular times. the coffee was great. one definite minus is the blaring noise of the karaoke bar across the road.......diminished a little on a saturday night, when the police are patrolling the entertainment area. otherwise it continues til 4am......the management at hotel have been fighting to get some earlier curfew.....to no avail. really nice swimming pool, but a 7 minute walk to proper beach.
great location very pleasant staff”
I really my room spacious and the sea view was wonderful with rum punch it sounds like holidays beside the weather was fine The general atmosphere of the hotel was really good and tha air condition was good the staff discret and and efficient with a wide smile I really enjoy my stay at south gap hotel and soon be back in barbados obviously I will book at saouth gap and had already talked my friends about the place
Beautiful setting with ocean breeze”
Second visit, would always come back, hotel is old, yet well kept, fully equipped kitchenette, internet working well, too. Advantage and disadvantage: Right on the 'Strip' St. Lawrence Gap, Discos and Night Clubs around, music can be heard until late, but I chose this willingly. Plenty restaurants around, yet no cheap fare. But nothing is cheap in barbados! So go there and enjoy your stay
Amazing location and friendly staff”
This hotel is a 60 second walk away from a small supermarket. A 2 minute walk away from a jaw dropping beach, and has Restaurants and bars surrounding it. I don't usually stay in hotels like this. However we decided on a whim to go to Barbados and this was the best mix of location and price available at such short notice. I can only imagine that the low star rating for this hotel is because of the noise during the night - because the rooms, views, cleanliness and service would not be out of place in a five star hotel. The rooms are very large, and equipped with microwave, ipod speaker dock, alarm clock, hob cooker, fridge and a freezer. There is a fairly large balcony and the view is something I will never forget. The location is fantastic. We are both in our mid twenties and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the nightlife right on our doorstep. There are two negatives. The hotel is noisy during the nights (due to its close proximity to so many bars). Now I had heard several horror stories on various websites about this issue and had packed ear plugs for us. However I did not find it anywhere near as noisy as we had been led to believe and we didn't even use the ear plugs. So I am not sure if we just got lucky with the room provided to us. It is fairly noisy, but certainly not intolerable. The second negative I really do have a problem with. You can not step outside the hotel without being harassed by somebody trying to sell you drugs. Now I am aware that the reason we were singled out is because we are fairly young. The issue I have is that the same people are repeatedly trying to sell drugs, knowing that you have told them several times previously you are not interested. One night this did cause an argument between us as I was apparently rude to somebody who offered me drugs for the 20th time in 3 nights. This can't be blamed on the hotel though.
Great Location Small Bathroom”
trip was excellent. south gap is not the newest hotel but very clean and great customer service. excellent choice for guest on the go.
Surprisingly good standard for the price!!!”
Every time I have visited Barbados I have stayed in a 4* hotel. Because this was a short stopover trip with my Brother we decided to just book what we thought would be a cheap and cheerful room each for the two nights. We were pleasantly surprised! The hotel was very clean, the rooms were surprising well equipped, with iron and ironing board, tea and cofee making and cooking facilities, toiletries, fridge and good sized balconies. The pool area and bar/restaurant area was also very nice. The location was 2nd to none. I have never stayed so close to the gap and it did not affect on my sleeping whatsoever. I would highly recommend this hotel to travellers, whether on a budget or not!
Very nice hotel for business and relaxation”
The room is narrow, particularly the stretch between bed and desk (no place for a chair, sat on the bed rim to work) but everything else is really great, the bed itself very good, the fan is working well, airco is very good, too, bathroom old, but well functioning, kitchen strip fully equipped, parking spot on premises, in the middle of the nightlife, but could still sleep well, becs room was on the ocean side. It is really a very nice experience, will come back!!. Staff very friendly, however, less knowledgeable as to the ilsands whereabouts, when I asked for some places outside St.Lawrence gap and closer Christchurch, received vague and wrong replies.(I guess they would know how to direct me to tourist centers of interest, but I am on business)
a pleasant stay”
After a request they did change my room to higher floor. Ithe hotel needs updating, but the stay was pleasant. It is in very busy st lawrence gap so be prepared for loud nites.
Great Hotel Friendly Staff”
The stay at this hotel was very enjoyable and we would stay here again. The only discomfort was the noise from the restaurants and bars on the street but after moving to a downstairs room the noise was eliminated. The sun beds could do with updating. Perhaps beach access (which is about a 5 minute walk away) could be an issue for some people but we enjoyed the walk and preferred the pool for swimming and lazing around. The beach was fabulous for walks. Other than that we had a perfect stay and would highly recommend this as a place to stay in this price bracket.
Relaxing holiday at South Gap Hotel”
We really enjoyed the pool area of the hotel. There we enough beach chairs, lovely staff and good drinks (2 happy hours a day). Also there's a good beach near by. South Gap area was great for easy and relaxing holiday.
Motel style, budget”
The South Gap Hotel is more of a motel style accommodation with parking available out the front. This is not glamorous accommodation but does have a swimming pool and lovely outlook over the ocean but no direct beach access. Happy hour at midday and early evening is a plus! Bring earplugs as the bars/clubs on the street are very loud during the high season.
great service, nice staff, amazing view.”
Great location - very close to the beach, shops, clubs and pubs. Very friendly and helpful staff - they arrange all the trips for us, suggested to attend the zumba class on Monday, which was great fun. Chatty people and the hotel bar - always somebody to talk to.
ok but no beach”
Exterior view of building is non-descipt. Inside is small lobby, dingy hallways. Limited restaurant, small pool, old worn-out lounge chairs. Rooms though are ok. Superior seaview room was big, clean, freshly decorated, everything worked excellent, comfortable. Junior suites downstairs on pool level cost a little more and were not good: small bedroom and small front room, bad uncomfortable space. This is good hotel for usd per night if you are solo or with friends there to party, many places nearby. Not a couples or romantic destination. No beach with this hotel, need to hike a bit.
A little over priced, friendly staff”
The rooms are clean and comfortable if a little on the small side and a little over priced for what they are but no overly so. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Great restaurants and beaches are within minutes on foot.
guests were to feel at home, staff very helpful”
a little noisy thurs night ,,not in the hotel but from across the street.
Amazing location, beautiful ocean view”
I will definitely stay here again when I am back in Barbados. The staff (particularly AnnaLee) were all very helpful and friendly. The location is very central to nightlife. It is loud every night with noise from the karaoke across the road but this is OK if you want to be out and amongst it.
Shame about the karaoke bar noice”
Unfortunately we could not sleep at all at this hotel. The bar across the road goes till about 5am & it is just as loud in the room as if you were at the bar. We asked to be moved & were moved for 1 of our 4 nights to a ground level facing the pool - we got some sleep, but in our 1 bedroom (most expensive room in the hotel) it was impossible. The hotel is well aware of the problem, the staff were nice but they should not rent these rooms without full disclosure of the extreme noise. Everything else was great - such a shame I could never stay there again!!!!!!
Nice hotel, but not so clean”
The room we got was ok, but it was not cleaned enough. The furniture is rather old and repainted. The atmosphere at the hotel was nice. The location is perfect. It was somehow a pleasant stay in the end.
Too noise, too old, needs some refurbishing”
The Hotel is well located at the Gap, but it is almost impossible to sleep at night, there were locals talking to some of the hotel guests just under our window at at 4:00am. The Karake bar sounded in our room...
Great view of the ocean”
On the most exciting street in Barnados with a great pool and ocean views
