This hotel is so much fun. Like staying at a hotel in Nantucket 40 years ago…the AC was so great i had to get out a sleeping bag! The rooms are very cool—the hotel is built out of a workplace at an old English Harbour naval base…very unfortunately the windows did not open but the place is breezy enough, the ceilings are high—my room had two floors with a small bedroom in the sort of attic space…all totally clean and a staff with good humor—a very nice stay. Thank You!

We stayed here for 1 night as an overnight stay before a connecting flight out to Tortola. We stayed in a really nice room overlooking the Harbour (can't remember the room name but I think it is one of the Georgian Suites). Lovely view and a very comfy bed and thought it was great value for money. Didn't have much interaction with the staff as we were only there one night but when we did, they were friendly and very helpful. And even had breakfast included with the room which came as a nice surprise. Would happily use again !

We visited here 3 times - once for breakfast, once to celebrate one of the rowing team in and once for afternoon drinks. All 3 visits unfortunately had absolutely shocking service - extremely slow and you had to constantly ask for a drink etc. Also - the attitude of the staff is poor, as if they don’t want to be there and don’t care. In the end, we ended up going to the bar ourselves (with no bartender) for all of our drinks. This is such a lovely hotel / restaurant and could be amazing - but the management absolutely need to put more staff members on to ensure it delivered more than the poor service it is currently delivering. It is an expensive place and you absolutely expect more than what it is delivering. The restaurant is delivering to a captive audience on the dockside, which I think makes it’s service poor as people will keep coming back regardless.

The hotel was empty when we arrived…Antigua was just coming out of its latest lockdown and associated curfew restrictions and, as a result, the hotel had been through some restoration/redecoration work. That meant the facilities weren’t fully functioning - no bar, no restaurant. In fact we were the only guests for the entire three days…a unique experience. Nevertheless, Brenda and Claudius made us feel most welcome. In fact, Claudius seemed to be there 24/7! Once they got over the shock of having guests again, nothing could be too much trouble - breakfast was brought to the room on a daily basis (an extended continental with additional items we requested) as there was no restaurant, and on one night Claudius played music outside our room to serenade my wife as we drank wine and ate a platter of meats and cheeses. We also saw them prep beautifully for a rehearsal dinner (inc fireworks) one evening, for a couple who were getting married nearby. As for the hotel itself, it is a period property that is traditionally decorated and furnished as such…do not expect a modern contemporary feel. But it was a treat to stay somewhere so atmospheric, that imbued that sense of history. We loved it. Thank you Brenda and Claudius!

We had been in Antigua for business and had moved around the island during the 2 weeks of our stay. Copper & Lumber was by far the best hotel for quality of room and value for money. Gillian who was our main point of contact during our stay was fabulous, as was Brenda and Cornelius ( I hope I got that right!) All of the reception staff were super efficient, booking our covid test when it was out of hours and where also very friendly. We stayed for 5 night. The first room we had was called Hardy - a large split level room, with small kitchenette, large living area on one floor with tons of storage, a bathroom on the half landing and a large bedroom with vaulted ceiling on the top floor, far more space than we actually needed, and although lovely it was VERY dark with no view. After we decided to stay for a little longer I requested to be moved to a room with more light and a bit of a view , we were given a room called Brittania , all one level, again with a kitchenette, sofa, dining table and incredible views over the super yachts, perfect .It also had a great bathroom with a recently renovated shower stall, lots of lovely dark wood, which made you feel you were on a boat.The bed was comfy , little soft for my personal preference and did creak a lot when you turned over at night.The rooms are traditionally furnished with dark wood furniture, maritime themed pictures with classical soft furnishings, as you would expect from a hotel of this age, everything was very tasteful. We didn't eat in the hotel, but breakfast was included and is served on the terrace overlooking the yachts. We thought that were some missed oppertunities for additional income and would have loved to have seen traditional afternoon tea served on the lawn, something that is very popular on other Caribbean islands and would have fitted the hotel and its setting, as well as bringing in additional revenue. The hotel is situated in Nelsons Dock Yard, A UNESCO World heritage site, the buildings within the dockyard are all spectacular, steeped in history.It is a short walk to a few bars and a small supermarket and about a 7 minute walk into English Harbour which has a larger selection of restaurants and bars. We stayed in 5 hotels during our time in Antigua and this was by far the best for quality, service, location and value. Thank you to all the lovely staff at this super hotel, your boss should be proud of you!

I just can't say enough about the warmth of the staff at this place. We were welcomed by Gilli (sorry if misspelled) and throughout our stay she made us feel like family. We really felt liked she cared about us and our happiness. She and all the rest of the team there were absolutely wonderful. The place itself is gorgeous and it so cool to be in such a historic building. We had the 2-level suite which was wonderful as my mom and I could be on separate levels (which would also be great for families). The wood floor and all the finishing touches were exceptional. It also had an amazing range of tv channels (of course you don't come to Antigua to watch TV but when you can catch your football team playing in the playoffs on one of their channels, it is a big bonus!). I highly recommend this hotel, and would like to say a special thanks to all the staff there.

This is situated in Nelson’s dockyard which is worth a visit in itself. We had a lovely lunch here. Good food, good service and in a wonderful location. Definitely would recommend if you’re in the area.

We went to stay in the Copper and Lumber after a few nights staying with family on a boat in English Harbour. The rooms are lovely - lots and lots of space - and the historic building is beautifully renovated. The staff were lovely, warm and accommodating - we enjoyed it so much we went back for a second night. English Harbour is a great base and there’s plenty of cafes, shops, bakeries and restaurants within walking distance. The museum is also next door. Highly recommend.

We loved sleeping in the historic Copper and Lumber Store. This is part of the National Park and it met all of our expectations. It was clean, spacious, comfortable, and best of all...historic. We were able to walk everywhere and breakfast was included in the price.
