We had a corner room with two balconies. One with a terrific view over the pool area and out to the bay. We dined in their main restaurant and also at the Wharf, their waterfront restaurant.

Ocean Terrace Inn is in a perfect location. Two minutes drive from the heart of town. The room and grounds are beautifully laid out and decorated. I enjoy the hospitality displayed by the staff.

a really nice hotel with wonderful views toward Basseterre and easy walking access. This is not a beach resort but would be suitable for a get away and very good business hotel. I stayed here for an in-house conference - this was very well supported by hotel management and staff.

The hotel is wonderful and the view spectacular. As previously noted, be prepared to go up and down a lot of steps. Our room was spacious and clean. The front desk assisted us with taxis as needed.

The grounds, rooms, views, service, and amenities of Ocean Terrace Inn are truly outstanding.

OTI is a quality hotel with stunning views across the bay - generally the customer service is excellent, the rooms clean and well maintained - the only critical comment ts are that the restaurant service is slow and the pool bar needs improving. If you need to stay in Basseterre it is the best hotel.

For business travelers, on a budget, there is no better choice than the OTI. The property is great, rooms are large, beds are very comfortable, and it gives you an overall feeling of coziness. Important however for those with some physical limitations to request rooms located at street level. There are no elevators due to the nature of the terrain... More

The hotel itself is well kept. Rooms are in excellent condition, with good views of the ocean. But location is not good - on the edge of Basseterre, where there is little to do and nowhere to eat.
