Great location, and great food, but not on the beach even though the view is quite nice. I didn't stay at Boom, only came to explore this new location. Its nice to see the colonial and more modern blend, however it seems that the development of this hotel devalued much of the former powered magazine's historical value and environmental significance...

We didn't stay here but went for a meal a couple of times whilst we were in Antigua. The setting, the food and the cocktails were amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely go here again if (or rather, when) we go back to Antigua.

Admirals Inn is a boutique hotel — beautiful, full of character, quirks and history, and well supported by helpful, friendly and accommodating staff and owner. The location of the Inn was superb — to... More

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... More

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... More

Room was nice with view over English harbour, Frogs singing in evening, good restaurants around. Lovely environment with a mood of "Pirats of the Caribian" ☺ The best, luxury swimingpool on the ether side of the harbour, just a minute with the boat over
