We headed for Ottley's Plantation Inn for 10 nights in March 2017, in search of rest and relaxation. From the moment we arrived we were treated as valued guests of the family, who were extremely welcoming and eager to ensure that we had a great time. We were delighted with our spacious room on the first floor of the plantation...

Ottleys was more beautiful than any of the photos showed. The cabin where we stayed was incredible and was once part of the original plantation. The management and staff were fun and very helpful. Attitudes were wonderful. The food was great and the cleanliness of the property was top notch. We really enjoyed our visit to St. Kitts / Nevis...

Dear DerekParsons I can assure you that we Owners/Innkeepers/Hosts have done everything in our power to create a very small resort that serves our guests extremely well.

Made a special trip to the Royal Palm Restaurant and it was worth it. The food was unique in its Caribbean flair and very good. Service was attentive and friendly.

We stayed at Ottley's Plantation Inn for 9 nights. On arrival we were greeted in a helpful and friendly manner. Our flight had been delayed by 7 hours and our luggage was missing.

Ottley's Plantation Inn is in a beautiful setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It is set in well maintained gardens. The owners were very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and of an international cuisine. It is a very small hotel with only 23 rooms. It is very quiet and tranquil and so not the ideal destination for those wanting...

You are very well looked after, well fed by charming and friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble. There is a free ride to the beach or town six days a week and the plantation has a good sized pool and botanical gardens to explore. Frankly 11 out of ten!

Dear Susan K Thank you for "stopping by." Great that you were able to go with the flow. So many people over schedule themselves and do not give themselves the opportunity to have an experience. We are delighted that your experience was a relaxed and happy one. It was our pleasure seeing you and we hope to see you again.
