If you don't like the impersonal nature of large hotels this place is definitely for you. You feel like you are in the Antiguan community with a feel of the way of life. Bernadette couldn't be more helpful or personable, doing as much or as little to aid your trip as you want. We were there for the test match... More

Wasn't expecting too much from Ellen Bay Cottages based on the price being so much lower than almost anything else on the island. What we found was a nice clean room where everything (wifi, satellite tv, air cond, phone) worked. Bernadette is not only an exceptionally nice person but goes out of her way to help if asked or even... More

My Chap and I booked two weeks at Ellen Bay as we wanted a base that wasn't too expensive as we were on our friend's sailing yacht for eight days. We were collected from the airport by Bernadette the owner, who is a delightful lady and stopped at the nearest Epicurian supermarket (Waitrose!) for us to stock up on a... More

The prices are affordable and you really get what you see on the pictures. The host was very helpfull and gave us a lot of tips... More

We stayed for a week mainly to watch the cricket. The stadium was only 4 miles away, so it was a great base. In fairness the island is so small it is easy to access all the Island from here. The owner Bernadette was so helpful, she really made it easy for us to enjoy ourselves, and if and when... More

I just got back from my stay at the Ellen Bay Cottages. The managers live on the property, and they will help you whatever it is. I stayed in the studio, it had everything I needed, I did bring my own shampoo. You have to supply your own food also. It is not a large hotel chain, just a privately... More
