Hilary and Peter were excellent hosts. Our accommodation was first class - everything we could possibly have wanted was provided. Hilary organising flights and the rental car made it so streamlined for us. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a peaceful, luxury stay on Barrier to stay here. Sally and Nigel

My husband and I spent a wonderful three days at Mount St. Paul Estate and GBI and are writing to highly recommend both. We generally stay at 5-star and luxury resorts around the world, definitely not back-packing types. Mount St. Paul is the best place to stay on the island. The rooms with separate entrances from the main house are...

We stayed at Mt St Paul Estate using an online deal during a long weekend in October so this review is well and truly overdue. I would have loved another couple of days on the Island.
