We came to The Inn for our honeymoon we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and was welcomed by a wonderful view of the stunning grounds and Galleon beach. Simply an idyllic spot they do so much right, very peaceful and relaxing with a generally older clientele if you want late nights in the bar this hotel may not be ideal. We stayed in a junior suite a lovely room expertly looked after and cleaned to a very high standard by Annetta, many thanks fron us both. Breakfasts in the reef restaurant are very nice if you want something not on the menu the chef will do his best to accommodate you, Tussy is a star full of energy and always has a smile.The beaches are well kept nice sunbeds and Rey or Thomas are on hand for your refreshment requests and a little chat.My wife used the beautician Nikki she was very pleased with her pedicure treatment and had a lovely chat with her. Arriving we were slightly worried about the quality of food in the terrace restaurant after reading reviews ...we need not worry every meal we had was gorgeous compliments to the chef, it was restaurant quality every night. One minor issue was our white wine was not chilled enough. The staff throughout the hotel were ever so friendly but they excelled themselves on the terrace with Neil, Wesley, Sharilyn, Jerry and Janelle always happy up for a chat a great team ! We used the library and games room extensive collection of books and a lovely room to relax in. One gripe we had as did other guests was that the hotel shuttle boat sank on the evening of Tuesday 28th Feb and was out of action, we got a letter from the management on the following Monday apologising saying that a taxi service twice a week would be introduced until the boat was returned, sadly too late and a inadequate response. Vere who runs the boat service and water toys is a very laid back easy going chap always with a smile on his face, even when his beloved boat sank. Sadly we had a influx of sargassum seaweed but Martin and his teamed worked brilliantly and throughout the day to clean up the beach. The weekly bbq is well worth attending at the beach reef restaurant the chef Deal was great as was the steel band.Special mention to the singer on the Wednesday night, very good and soulful voice. I totally understand why The Inn has so many repeaters and we can't wait to join them One day, a little bit of paradise, we had a wonderful honeymoon!!

WE have stayed at The Inn on many occasions over the years and things remain as lovely as ever. Here for two weeks and I think the hotel was full (I think there are only 28 rooms) The rooms are large and very clean with useful amenities - though no bathtubs, showers only. We had a generous balcony overlooking the lawns and then to the beach and sea - fabulous! A lot of other guests had been before and it was good to see some familiar faces. The hotel guests are predominantly older. The food - we were on half board (Lunch can be swopped for dinner) The Reef Restaurant for breakfast and lunch is literally on the beach with fabulous views of the anchorage. The food is good and the staff excellent. The Terrace Restaurant is next to The Stone Bar and dinner is served here either indoors or out depending on the weather. The menu changes, I think once a week, Its OK but not brilliant though the staff are great - We ate out on a number of occasions and there are several good restaurants within a short taxi ride. The Hotel promises a "water taxi" shuttle to Nelsons Dockyard where there are a number of facilities to be enjoyed as well as an Historical Site . Unfortunately the boat sank after our first week and this did mar our stay somewhat - Hotel management were slow to do anything about it. They eventualy ran a shuttle bus - one trip two days per week - not good. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly return. The cost is high but this is The Caribbean in high season

So I was really looking forward to my stay here and half was great the other half not... So what was good: The people & service - super friendly and helpful, they remember your name, your orders and are generally fantastic! Reception's always helpful too! The beach - it's so nice to have a beach which isn't crowded and where you can always get a sunbed. The beach towels are to die for - sooo lovely! and what didn't hit the mark: The rooms/mosquitoes - I booked this hotel based on previous reviews stating that they are great about preventing mosquitoes and that all rooms have nets. The first night on my arrival I had to walk through a swarm of them and unfortunately my room was also filled with them. In addition there was no net. I complained the next day (i'd arrived late at night) and despite spray and plug in - I was bitten loads - including on my face! I complained again and asked for another room (I have never done this before) and was first told no, but I was genuinely going to move hotels as I couldn't spend another night being eaten alive. Luckily I was moved to a room that did provide a mosquito net. I spoke with other guests who found the same thing. Do insist on a room with a net if you suffer like me when bitten by mozzies! Finally - in both rooms, you could see lots of dead bugs between the windows and the shutters - I appreciate that these things are difficult to clear, but it's not a good look. The food - the Reef restaurant was good, but repetitive. Whilst the Terrace restaurant was the same menu for a whole week - and broadly the same type of flavours, and i'm afraid to say a little bland. If you like variety and full flavours - you will definitely want to go out and explore - and therefore you may love the hotel, but don't stay half board! It's such a shame as all it would take is someone with a good vision for both restaurants to really elevate the food and this really could be somewhere special. So one the whole - I was disappointed with the hotel and wouldn't stay there again. But a couple of changes and it could be genuinely lovely.

Response from Fabio Giorgi, General Manager at The Inn at English Harbour
Responded Feb 10, 2023
Dear Antcav18, Thank you for your review and your nice words regarding our staff and property. Mosquitoes are not a major issue here at The Inn but due to weather conditions you may see an increase of them around Antigua. For information purposes for our readers let me say that the hotel carries out fogging around the property once every month and that all our Deluxe Suites and 6 of our Junior Suites have mosquito nets. We are glad we could have allocated one of those to you while here. All rooms have a mosquito plug-in repellent device and if necessary or requested by our guests at turn down, we will spray the room with a mosquito repellent. Our Terrace Restaurant menu is offered for 5 nights in a week, then we have a Caribbean BBQ and an Italian night. The following week we offer a different menu. This year in particular we have got a lot of compliments on our food but we certainly do respect a person's tastes and opinion and we are sorry that we didn’t meet your approval. Hope to see you back. Kind regards Fabio Giorgi

A mid winter vacation to celebrate my 75th birthday. Fabulous location, paradise. 10/10 Wonderful super sized accommodation , although number 33 is alongside a busy beach side road so could be a bit noisy , not that it was too troublesome . The view across the lawn to the beach more than compensated. Staff throughout were the icing on the cake, a lot of fun and nothing too much trouble going beyond the call of duty making my birthday a lot of fun. The beach side cafe was terrific fun and served up anything requested , top quality food, breakfast offering of a daily plate of fruit was a nice surprise and enjoyed. Our one negative was the quality of the evening meals, should be so much better from such a outstanding hotel in terms of the food. It’s unlikely as a result of the quality of the evening offering of dinner sadly we would not return.

Response from Susanna Salvia, Owner at The Inn at English Harbour
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Roger, Thank you for your kind and numerous compliments about our resort. The Inn is a luxury resort located in the very special and beautiful English Harbor and inside the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our Terrace restaurant is one of the very few restaurants on the island where you can dine under the stars whilst enjoying a spectacular view of the bay, so I am sorry to read that you will not return because you did not like our Terrace cuisine. High-end food is not really the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of the Caribbean, but at The Inn we work hard to offer our guests the best we can source: from fresh food from our organic garden to local seasonal produce, all accompanied by the professionalism of our staff. Over the years we have employed several chefs: from well-known Italian/Swiss/French to local Caribbean chefs, and what I have come to learn is that you cannot please everyone. It is very difficult to make an objective judgment about food because it depends so much on culture and personal taste - what one person finds exquisite, another may deem so-so. Consider pasta, I am Italian and I eat it “al dente”, however I have had my non Italian friends tell me it’s undercooked and that it’s not for them! Luckily our resort is not all-inclusive, you can easily change lunch to dinner or even book just for breakfast. There are also many restaurants to choose from in English Harbour, just a 5-minute boat shuttle away. However, I want to sincerely thank you for sharing your experience and for choosing our resort for your birthday celebration. I hope you find on your next vacation a hotel with a restaurant where the food better suits your taste. Warm regards,

Old world Caribbean style at its best We visited for a week - husband and wife in very early 60s. This is Death in Paradise meets A Caribbean Mystery. Beautiful old style small hotel - full of charm. This is NOT a top end swish modern luxury resort. It is highly individual. This is the Caribbean as it’s always been. Ever so slightly peeling and faded, doors don’t quite shut, Aircon is a little noisy, bathroom fittings are not spanking new. But : the setting is quite wonderful, on Galleon Beach with a free 2 min shuttle to unesco heritage site Nelson’s Dockyard. Fabulous views, very peaceful, small and tranquil. Linens and towels were excellent, bed large and comfortable. Lighting in room was good, all rooms have lovely patios or balconies. Rooms spacious. Bathroom large and well appointed, lots of hot water and a nice modern shower. Toiletries excellent, tea and coffee provided. Fabulous infinity pool and all rooms a tiny stroll to pool and beach. Lots of lovely beach loungers with plush towels. Fabulously safe swimming beach with wonderful boats on view. Note : we were there when the ocean rowing crews were coming in - they finish right in front of the hotel. A real bonus. There is only one restaurant open in the evening, up at the top where reception and a bar is, with plentiful shuttles all the time (because it’s really too steep to walk and lots of the guests are 65+). During the day, the action is at the beach restaurant where breakfast is served, also lunch and full afternoon tea! BBQ there on Thursday nights. Food was of an uniformly excellent standard. Really good. There is a small spa, mostly geared for massage. There are tennis courts, and a decent gym. There are also excellent and reasonably strenuous hiking tracks. Rooms - we were in 16 (deluxe junior suite) - very nice and spacious. For last 2 night we moved due to availability when we booked to a junior suite (no18). Also fine, little smaller, no Nespresso machine but perfectly fine. There are four beach cabanas right on the beach - pros and cons accordingly. Both ground and first floor rooms seem nice. We were on the ground, which we usually don’t like, but it was lovely, light and safe. There are a few mozzies but nothing a squirt of repellent can’t cope with. I have never been to a place with as many “repeat guests” - one couple had been coming for 34 years, 8-10 visits was not uncommon. There was a real personal touch amongst the staff and a friendly and welcoming attitude not always present in the Caribbean. Thoroughly recommend for couples, honeymoon, anniversaries, possibly a bit more for elders than youngers as there is no nightlife on site and it’s generally very quiet. Not particularly set up for children - they wouldn’t be unwelcome as such but we didn’t see any at all. We had a great time

Generally good, but a few disappointments that could be easily remedied. Location is excellent, almost all the people lovely, our room large and comfortable with great balcony. Food somewhat disappointing for a highly rated hotel, and would avoid half board which is too restricting.

The Inn is a stunning small elegant boutique colonial style resort in the most beautiful location on Galleon Bay. Close enough by a quick courtesy boat trip to the UNESCO English Harbour and set in private tranquil gardens. We stayed in both an upper floor junior suite room 33 (2 beds joined together) and a delux ground floor suite (room 16) which was larger and had the most comfortable super king four poster bed with mosquito net. What makes the resort stand out is the service, it was impeccable throughout and we enjoyed talking with all the staff. We decided not to stay full board, but enjoyed the Italian night at the Terrace and the lunch at the Reef Bar. We agree with other reviews that the menu and food at the Reef bar is better. An easy taxi ride at night can take you over to English Harbour to experience lots of other great dining options. (Catherine’s Cafe, Incanto are also great) The beach beds were really comfortable and there were lots of them, fresh fluffy beach towels and a courtesy bag with water bottles to fill up with chilled water from dispensers were provided on arrival. We also enjoined playing tennis on the flood lit grass style courts, and chess in the library. This is an elegant quiet resort, mainly for mature couples situated on one of Antiguas best beaches.

The location, for those (like us) who wanted to chill-out, was absolutely perfect. Golden sand, huge infinity pool, no beach traders, excellent courtesy-boat service to Nelson’s Dockyard. The hotel staff were all superb… friendly and professional throughout. We found it a pity (although it is not the hotel’s fault - it’s the geography) that the main hotel reception, bar and terrace, can only realistically be accessed from the bedrooms by using the hotel shuttle. There are some lovely public rooms in the main building which we would love to have sat in if it wasn’t so far away. However, there is a library at the lower (bedroom and beach) level which has comfortable chairs and many books available as well as a large TV screen which was useful when the World Cup was taking place! The Reef restaurant (on the beachfront) was perfect for breakfast and for lunch, with a good selection of high-quality food. The only “not so good” surprise for us was the standard (and choice) of food in the evenings in the Terrace restaurant (in the main building). The reason it was a “surprise” was due to the stark difference with the excellent Reef restaurant. We were expecting something better than what was served-up every evening in the Terrace restaurant. We had a deluxe (upstairs) suite which had a spacious balcony with comfortable loungers. The bedroom itself was huge and the bed was very comfortable but, in our opinion, the room would have benefited from some more suitable seating. The furniture looked as though it was from the same era as in Nelson’s time and was uncomfortable in the extreme. So…. the reason I didn’t give it that extra fifth star was something that could easily be put right. Firstly, some more modern furniture in the suite and, secondly, the quality of the Terrace restaurant should be raised to that of the Reef restaurant.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting on a stunning bay in a National Park and set in lovely and well cared for gardens. The public rooms are elegant and comfortable and our junior suite room was great - spacious with a lovely large furnished balcony and everything we could need. The picture post card beach was kept extremely clean and the sea gloriously clear. The pool was large and well maintained and there were sufficient sunbeds for all guests. Snorkelling off the beach was delightful. The boat shuttle service to Nelson's dockyard was a plus, run by the friendly and helpful Captain Vere. Watersports equipment was limited but accurately described. There were plenty of snorkels and flippers and 2 one-person lasers, a couple of kayaks, and a couple of pedaloes. Dining at the Terrace restaurant in the evening was fabulous and we were happy to bump into the charming Chef Antonio on our last day to tell him how much we appreciated his food. The food was of high quality with fresh ingredients and imaginatively created. The stunningly located beach restaurant offered wonderful breakfasts and lunches with a wide choice. We found food and drink expensive but in line with other similar establishments. The staff were all friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely to want guests to have a good time. No wonder there was such a high proportion of loyal returning guests. We hope to return one day.
