“A good choice for the budget traveler”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2011

My wife and I found Lamblion Apts on the internet and decided to take a chance. We were pleased with our stay. We had a comfortable, clean, roomy one bedroom apartment at a very reasonable cost, which allowed us to stay on the island for three weeks. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. they were also able to rent us a car for our stay. (We met a couple on our flight to Antiqua who were staying at one of the all-inclusive resorts. It was costing them, for a five day stay, the same it was costing us for three week including the rental car.

The complex is still under contruction, which the owners plan to have completed by July 2011. It will then have eleven apartments, on three floors. This is not a place to stay if you need an ocean view, but it was an easy drive to many beaches and St. Johns. During out stay we got to meet other guests from Canada, St. Vincent, Grenada and Poland, which we found to be a travel plus.

I chose Angigua for my mom-daughter vacation. Since I need to be on a special diet, I searched for an apartment with kitchen access. Plus, I hate all inclusive resorts full of tourists. This is how I came across Lamblion. I am so glad I did!!! It's a great pick for many reasons. First, the owner, Lionel, is a great host. He has this amazing ability to make you feel at home right away. He is relaxed, easy going but very caring and helpful. He goes out of his way to make sure his guests are happy at all times. He will help you plan your stay so that you can get the most of your vacation. He is also happy to share information about the island and will answer every question.
Second, the apartments though not luxurious are very clean, nicely decorated and quiet. And of course, as other people mentioned, you can't beat the price. If you have a budget, this is very important.
Third, staying at Lamblion will give you the opportunity to really get to know the island. Its location in the middle of the island makes it necessary to get a bus or rent a car and drive to various parts of the island. We did both and thought it was so much more fun than just sitting at one beach in the resort.
In short, thumbs up!!!

I found the LambLion Guest Apartments on Tripadvisor and once again Tripadvisor came through for me. The location is central on the island and close to airport, beaches, shopping, and is a very quiet area. The apartment was clean, spacious, convenient with fridge, microwave, stove to allow anyone the freedom to eat in at times. Even had wireless internet and cable TV. The owners picked me up at the airport and provided me with a great rental car at a better price than any airport rentals. They are very nice people who want to make certain you are comfortable. If you want a sprawling beach front resort this is not for you. But if you want to go to sightsee and enjoy the whole island at a reasonable price this is just about perfect.

I have to start by saying that this Inn is amazing. It is tucked away down a dirt road which is extremely SAFE and extremely quiet. The rooms are very modern, include a kitchen/dining/living area, bathroom, and bedroom.

Your hosts are the epitome of kindness. They will pick you up and take you to the airport, and even offer to stop at the local grocery store on the way to the apartment.

They will loan you a cell phone that you only have to top up with minutes to call out. They will loan you a laptop (they are also the official Dell service techs on the island!). They have free wi-fi. The kitchen is stocked with utensils, coffee maker, pots, pans, ice cube trays, etc. The permanent residents of the apartments are friendly and quiet. I truly loved my stay here!

Unfortunately, I am from the States, and have never driven on the "wrong" side of the road. My only complaint, which should in NO WAY reflect on the Inn, is the location for folks that can't/don't want to drive.

Driving on Antigua is dodgy in the best circumstances, and you should NEVER try to drive on the left side of the road for the first time in Antigua. The tight roads, erratic drivers, lack of lights and signals, etc. make it a bad first choice for learning to drive on the left.

The Inn is located in the middle of the island, which is great for those that want a central location to call headquarters, as long as you drive.

It is difficult to get a cab for the first time, as it is hard for them to find you. You have to walk up a fairly steep hill to the main road, and then walk down to the gas station. It is about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile. You will need to tell the driver that you will meet them on All saint's road next to the gas station with the "Penny Machine".

If you use the same cab driver, you can direct them back to the apartments (they may or may not be willing to drive down the dirt road), then you can use the same driver for the rest of your trip.

Alternately, you can make the same walk and use public transit, which is fairly frequent and easy to use if you are not in a hurry.

The only other caveat I have is for people that don;t travel to Europe or extensively to the Caribbean. The rooms are air conditioned, but only in the bedroom. The kitchen, living room, etc, have fans but no air.

There are bugs. This is the Caribbean. It is humid, and there are bugs.

My wife, my two children and I were so comforatble while staying at Lamblion Guest Apartments in Antigua. We could have chosen one of the many other guest house apartments or hotels in Antigua, but we went with our instincts and I am so glad we did. The rooms were well kept. The appliances worked perfectly. The A/C made it feel as if I was staying in one of the 4 or 5 star hotels not only in Antigua but even in the U.S.A. The location was great. We did'nt want to be too close to the St. Johns City Area because we wanted a quiet place to stay. It's location was so central which made it easy to get around Antigua and also to major tourist sites such as Nelson's Dockyard in English Harbor, Devil's Bridge just outside Wilikies and even within a 15 minutes drive to St. Johns city. We were within a few minutes of some of Antigua's best beaches. What made our stay so memorable was the way in which the staff was so professional, friendly and accomodating. My wife and I are already looking forward to our next trip to this beautiful island because we already know where we'll be staying.

  • Liked — The professional and friendly way in which the staff operated
  • Disliked — We were so comforatble that I can't think of any

We contacted the owners via email and telephone and they were always prompt in replies to any of our concerns.

Mrs Walker met us at the airport and gave us a mini tour on the way to the guest house, where I was shown our apartment, much to my approval. At Lamblion, it was also so convenient for my boyfriend to arrange a permit to drive in Antigua and rent a car on site.

The accomodations were well above average and the owners thought of everything for the comfort of their guests. We did not have to hunt for wares or cutlery.

It was at Lamblion that our toddler learnt to climb that one step up to the bedroom or back down to the kitchen/living room area. Mrs Walker was right - the baby did learn how to do it on her own.

The surroundings were quiet except for the apartment guests next to ours, but not distractingly so.

The location is in the centre of the island and a good walk over some inclines to the main road. Lamlion itself does not have much of a view being in the centre of the island but it isn't cluttered by houses or hotels or annoyances.

They also have Internet access and laptops for use as well as cell phones. A nice touch for a guest house.

Mr Walker, an affable guy along with his always-smiling wife, make hospitality seem so effortless! Chatting with them was always a pleasure and their advice was good.

We loved the personal touch that Lamblion offered, down to the complimentry bottle of non-alcaholic wine (for me).

  • Liked — The service, the comfort and the owners
  • Disliked — Had brief water problems.
