I have been at the Anchorage Rooms twice: in 2011 when I went to find a few friends working in Antigua, during the Sailing Week, and again in 2013 always during the Sailing Week days. The English owner Marilyn is really kind and she available in giving tips about the island. She can also arrange a few tours (for example... More

Due to the good location it was not always possible to go to sleep witout the noise from the surrounding bars and restaurants but that is a drawback easily compensated by the short walks on foot to all "in" places and the nice, helpful and very friendly owners.

It's good to hear you benefitted from our central location & found it most convenient with all ammenities only a short walk away in the heat. The Caribbean culture is noisy & fun filled especially over the international regatta you stayed for. One popular DJ is called No Sleep! But as you say on balance that drawback some nights is...

The room was good in size with a bathroom en suite, clean, comfortable and the cooler for private use was a nice extra. This hotel is located right in the middle between Falmouth and English Harbor and perfectly situated for exploring that part of the island and within a short walk to many restaurants and bars and the beach.

I'm very pleased to hear that after your 16 day stay you can highly recommend Anchorage Rooms as not being a hotel but as accommodation where you should be assured of a clean, comfortable ensuite room at a budget price in a top location in English Harbour. More

Very reasonably priced rooms, clean and spartan. I stayed in the dorm which was perfect for the price. They have mosquito netting over the beds which you can use or not. It is nice in case one of them gets in the room. Also gives you a bit more privacy. Bathroom was clean and functional. AC worked and helped to... More

Dorms life appears to have been perfect in your opinion for the price & great location midway between English & Falmouth Harbours. You felt the mosquito nets added to privacy & that is the aim as all doors & windows are well screened. The air conditioning you appreciated overnight included in the price & it's good to hear you'll look... More

Personal and friendly service at the right price. Simple but Caribbean feel. Staff personal with great warmth and love. The proximity to Nelson dockyard is very good and close to many wonderful restaurants. Sail boats crews usually also live here.

It's always a gamble to book holiday accommodation online, but tripadvisor reviews came up trumps when I chose Anchorage Rooms for a three night stay en route to Dominica. I enjoyed my stay here so much, I booked for another three nights on my return journey. Although cheaper than almost anywhere else on Antigua, the rooms are spacious, the beds... More

I'm delighted to hear that your gamble paid off staying for several nights in 2 different rooms either side of a longer stay on Dominica. Reading about accommodation, checking reviews & looking at photos still leaves the possibility for the vacation to be a disappointment. Luckily you say this wasn't the case for you.

Recently took part in the Carib 600 yacht race and used the Anchorage roooms whilst shore based before and after the race. Excellent location and great value for money. great location for Nelson's dockyard and the yacht club and a few bars between! Many thanks for the easy stay! I do hope to return!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Anchorage Rooms" are a great party spot at a great price! Set in a prime location within a stylish business center called "The Anchorage" between English & Falmouth Harbours. Our commitment is to rent clean,comfortable no frills accommodation at good value for money. All rooms are ensuite with large overhead fans & air conditioning is available in addition.Free fast WiFi is available throughout "The Anchorage" in the rooms or when relaxing on the terraces. Security cover is on site every night. Cafes, bars, shops, restaurants & an international outdoor disco are all in the vicinity. Also Pigeon Beach which is a comfortable 7 - 10 minute walk away.Bus connections are regular from the entrance to most other parts of Antigua. Several car & scooter rental options are close by. Great relations with local taxis make all airport transfers very straightforward whatever time of day.Antigua is a magnet for sailing in the Caribbean & from December to May making English & Falmouth Harbours busy places! "Anchorage Rooms" are central to the bars & restaurants which make English & Falmouth Harbours the lively party going places they can be. So while this makes this location an extremely convenient one, it also means "Anchorage Rooms" shares in the atmosphere! As one might expect, weekend nights & regattas are lively &, it being the Caribbean, there is a neighborhood club with a license to play outdoor music until 0300. Now, while we feel that the vast majority of our guests enjoy the atmosphere on these & every night, we feel it is important to set the scene as best we can! We also feel our price takes into consideration this & of course all other aspects. ... more   less
