Not enough cupboard space for 4 in one room. No TV access in the evening. (Put TV's in the rooms with one couch and a small table) Beds good, house service is good. Breakfast is brilliant. St Lucia is a beautiful popular place. We will visit again but will opt for self service accommodation.

Cosy, friendly and professionally run. Many more facilities than we needed. Only problems were some lamps in room not working (bulbs blown?) and coffee sachets(for use with in-room kettle) not renewed. Breakfast (especially croissants) delicious. Would certainly recommend Marlin Lodge.

Room was neat and tidy, spacious and all you need was there. Coffee was freely available in the lounge and the lounge was comfortable. Staff was more than willing to help and very friendly. It was definitely worth the money spent.
