This hotel offers rooms based on double and triple occupancy. It is reasonably priced and located walking distance from the Crown Point International Airport, store bay, Fort Milford, Pigeon Point and quite a few restaurants and shopping areas. You definitely can't go wrong with this convenience. It is a relatively old building and its definitely not your luxury hotel so...

Some friends and i visited Tobago recently and had yet to book any accommodations. I had heard of the hotel from some other friends and gave them a call and explained that we were basically on a budget and just needed a room that could hold 4 people comfortably for a couple of nights. Mr. Calendar the owner was very...

My family and I visited this hotel for 3 days in January 2013, just after the Christmas holidays. We were visiting Trinidad from Canada for 3 weeks and decided to add in a 3 day mini vacation to Tobago, as we usually do. Transportation from the airport to the hotel is not included in the price, so the 12 of...

I visited with 12 members of my family and, although apprehensive after reading various negative reviews, we decided to see for ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised to fine the rooms were clean, everything in the kitchens worked and we did not need to pay extras for anything as suggested in some reviews. The pool was lovely and clean as were...

For the Easter weekend my family decided to go to Tobago. But based on our timing most hotels were booked out. When we called GTH they said we will have to pay right away since the place was booked to capacity so we did. Upon arrival it is nothing what we thought. The place is extremely OLD, the room was...

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,...

If you like fancy smanchy then this isn't for you. If you like the basics then this is for you. Literally a 10 minute walk from the ANR International Airport it's easy to find yet tucked away enough to be quiet and peaceful. It's a Family run place with lots of rooms, a nice pool and a beautiful garden where...

My stay was quite good, the place although small is clean and well kept. The staff is very accomodating,welcoming and very friendly. In this modern time, a microwave should be a necessity and not an option at an additional cost. Security needs to be present especially at nights because of its location at the end of a short dirt road....
