I liked the Meridian Inn. Gord the owner and Michelle in the office as well as the cleaning staff and handyman are all friendly people who went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Anything we needed, we just asked for (e.g. a coffeemaker in the room; an iron and board). The room was bright...

The studio rooms are very good economy accommodation. The cleaning staff are exceptional and the management staff are very helpful. There is good access to Dover Beach and walking distance to many restaurants and stores. The location on St. Lawrence Gap is good since it's the quite end. The local Scotty's is a must for very good and well priced...

When I stay at Meridian Inn, which has been for the past 9 years, I always feel at home !!! The rooms are clean and well maintained. The hotel needs to be updated, however, for the price that I pay, I won't complain. I love the management and staff. Everyone is welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. The location of the hotel...

Stayed here for 2 weeks, it was great. Excellent location just at the end of the gap...no need to get a taxi home unless slightly tipsy. Rooms were cleaned everyday which i did not expect, as we were paying such a low price. I thought it would literally be a self contained apartment so was so happy when getting back...

My daughter and her 5 yr old child recently had to stay 3 nights in Barbados to replace their lost passports, needing to go to the American Embassy. It was a last minute booking and I had not a clue where to put them on short notice in unfamiliar territory on a tight budget, never having been there and not...

The hotel management is great. The manager, Petra, bent over backwards to help me so many times it was almost silly. It's rare when someone genuinely cares about your stay and does whatever they can to help out. It was my first trip to Barbados and I would have missed out on a lot if it weren't for her and...

The room was depressing....outdated and shabby, more like a pension or hostel. The area was dark and creepy with some shady characters milling around. The A/C was not cold and we were sticky throughout the night. The A/C was so noisy we could not hear the TV set. The shower water was not hot, only lukewarm. The twin beds could...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Meridian Inn is a small intimate hotel located just off the world renown St. Lawrence Gap. We are located 50 yards from the Casurina beach and most of our rooms have a view of the Ocean. We are a short walking distance to the heart of The Gap and all its restaurants and nightlife, but still in the quiet side of The Gap. ... more   less
