Step back in time to the circa 1800 “Landing” bungalow style house overlooking the “Government Dock” aka the pink house where all ferry and commerce takes place on Briland.

The menu is otherworldly try the Cocuq Mare with eggs, virginia ham and guerye cheese on the signature sourdough toast. Order the banana pancake as a share for the table cut it in 1/4 and everyone have a melt in your mouth pancake with a dripping molasses type honey topping (whew it’s good!)

Step inside to see the bar; a scene out of a movie scene; think of Humphrey Bogart and the lush landscaping inspires a Caribbean themed “cool vibe” that is made perfect by the artwork and old photos adorning the walls.

Go during the week as the weekend scene is “overcrowded”; the staff is most friendly and we met the owner who’s photo adorns the bathrooms walls with famous guests and reminds one of the Gataby era.

Put this one on your HI list!

Spent a week.
Exactly what they say it is.
A colonial house, full of charm and warmth. No luxuries with the exception of the loveliest surroundings.
It’s not the place to go if you look for hotel gadgets, etc..
No TV nor kettle in the room, bathroom is basic.
But I had the most amazing poster bed and 4 windows.
Don’t choose the gumelemi room if you are looking for quietness because between 7 and 11 pm you will have all the noise of the restaurant in the room. Didn’t bother me but could bother other people.
Breakfast is amazing. They have the best granola ever made.
And the best bread.
Only point to be really picky is the presence of a paper cloth over the regular one, it’s an expensive restaurant..
Food over dinner is to die for.
I missed the view of the ocean which you will have at the resorts on the beach but the hotel is great.
And the staff is particularly friendly and accommodating.
Go and visit if you stay in the special harbour island.

We both have traveled extensively in our lives. The Landing could very well be THE best experience of all time. From the moment we arrived until the moment of departure, Tina and the staff of this fabulous boutique hotel made us feel like we were the most important people in their lives. Our room was first class, dining was exemplary, the facilities so very unique and special. We are already discussing a return to this magical place.

Feels like a WASP fever dream from the 1950’s.
All the furniture and rooms are designed by India Hicks.
The bar and library feel as though Graham Greene or George Orwell in a pith helmet are about to come around the corner at any moment.
The drinks in the bar are stiff and their ginger infused vodka is not to be missed.
A framed photo of Sidney Poitier hangs in the bar - like a patron saint or the ubiquitous photos of JFK and the pope in many Irish homes.
The Landing doesn’t have TVs in the rooms but does have reliable internet. Scrabble and backgammon sets everywhere you turn.
Breakfast and dinner are served at the hotel. Complimentary coffee in the morning in the library and an excellent patio to sit on and watch the harbor come to life are one of the bits of local knowledge
We stayed in the Coco Bey room - a two bedroom one bath affair that was perfect for a family of four with two children.
The Landing is a warren of shacks and rooms. Some much nicer and more idyllic than others. The Coco Bey room was a ground floor affair facing one of the busier streets, But has a lovely porch and was surprisingly affordable.
The Landing gives you a beach bag and beach towels for the length of your stay.
One note - an 18% gratuity is attached to everything on the island - lunch, hotel stays - everything. So when you add VAT and gratuity to any bill you’re essentially adding 35% to any listed price.
But the Landing is lovely. Their pool is tiny but fun. The staff are awesome and it is as transformative a hotel as I have ever stayed in. It has character and makes you feel like you’re visiting a British Colony in the 1950’s - with all the pluses and minuses that might entail.

The best indicator of any great hotel/inn is the quality of the service/staff, and the Landing fails in this category. Every guest we met during our stay felt the same as us - the potential is there, but without a quality staff, it is not worth trying to save a few dollars compared to the other places to stay on the island. Good staff members are trained to understand HOSPITALITY 101 - When there is a significant service failure, you make up for it (even if only with a small gesture like an apology and a free breakfast, etc.) to ensure guests have an overall pleasant stay and want to return. Unfortunately, the staff at the Landing didn't receive this training and it takes away from the charming aspects of the inn. Two of our six nights were without a lot of sleep because of a malfunctioning air conditioner. To not have it fixed after the first night was frustrating enough, but, more importantly, to not even get an apology after the second night, and then have the staff argue in front of you at checkout over a simple accommodation on the bill was both unpleasant and unprofessional. HOSPITALITY 102 - Invest in the maintenance of the property regularly to prevent problems for guests. This was certainly the issue with the older-type of in-room air conditioner, and was also evident in other areas of the property that were in need of repair. With some loving attention, reinvestment of profits, and training of this staff, The Landing could be wonderful. Until then, I would stay elsewhere until ALL the reviews for this property turn positive.
