The former fort which now forms the core of this hotel dates from the mid-17th Century, and was one of 21 built to protect the island’s coastline. The first British settlement in Barbados was established in 1627 in Holetown - then called Jamestown, after James I. Located 12km north of the town, and named in honour of his grandson Prince Rupert, Fort Rupert was operational by 1654.


Almost 350 years later, that same coral-stone fort, restored and refurbished, houses The Fish Pot - a water’s-edge restaurant loved by locals and tourists in-the-know. It’s part of Little Good Harbour Hotel, which consists of 21 luxury suites – two also within the former fort, plus a cluster of charming guest cottages.


Located in the quiet fishing village of Shermans on the island’s north-west coast, this tranquil, characterful oasis conjures up images of ‘the old Barbados’. Come here if you want to combine self-catering* suite accommodation with the convenience of hotel services, including swimming pools, beach access, and this outstanding bar and restaurant – and be within easy reach of the west-coast attractions and actions, but away from the bustle. *The nearest shopping centre is just 3km away, in Speightstown.


When the comforts of your own suite don't cut it, there's a pleasant lounge at The Fish Pot restaurant - or you can always opt for a beach gazebo!

Breakfast, lunch and dinner à la carte are available at The Fish Pot beach-front restaurant, which includes a bar. A selection of fresh, healthy and tasty local and international dishes is served, and there is an extensive selection of fine wines to accompany them. Whilst priority is given to hotel guests, reservations are essential.
Alternatively, meals can be prepared in suite by a local cook [US$100 per meal, plus food].
