We spent a week here at the end of the season with the weather being a mixture of sunshine and infrequent heavy showers. The hotel in the evenings was quiet but the staff were attentive to the guests requests.The location is superb and the rooms overlooking the harbour have stunning views. The hotel restaurant meals are in the higher price...

We needed a hotel that we could spend a night and a full day at before departing from Antigua on a nighttime flight. The admirals inn was an excellent choice. Fortunately for us it was low season so we were able to use the room right until we left for the airport after supper on our final day. The owner...

We really enjoyed this place. From the owners and other staff to the brick walls and blue shutters, everything about this place exceeded expectations. People went out of their way to make it a enjoyable place to stay. Just a little explaining on the logistics- the inn is located in Nelson's dockyard while the pool is located across the harbor...

We have just returned from Admirals Inn where we spent the last two night of our holiday to the Caribbean. Steeped in history, beautifully renovated keeping many of the original historic features. We stayed in one of the Joiners Loft Suites which were beautiful and well located for exploring Nelsons Dockyard. The food and service were excellent and we were...

Loved this hotel. Rooms- initially got a room with a view of a clay wall, changed to sea view. Very happy with way staff handled the issue. Room very comfortable. On one day there was a plumbing issue - it wasn't a problem for us, and management resolved the issue which seemed to relate to a local drought issue. Certainly...

No TV, impossible slow WIFI, no minibar, very noisy street on the backrooms. The service in the restaurant impossible slow and lumpy. wait 50 minutes for standard breakfast (US$ 14.00+22.5% VAT!) and have to check all bills. Absolutely overpriced! The pool is on the other side of the bay, so if you wanna swim first find the shuttle boat driver.
