We went on a Friday night to the Seafood Bake at the Copper & Lumber Store Restaurant. They aren't ready to serve until about 7 even though the poster says 6. The food was delicious. Coconut shrimp was the best we've had and everything else was wonderful too! A great view and a perfect sxetting for a friday night seafood bake.

Copper and Lumber Company provides excellent accommodations in the historic Nelson Dockyard.

We stayed in the Africa Suite, a two story room with a living room overlooking the dock area and a bedroom with King bed. The furnishings were traditional and lovely and we would point out the beautiful dark wood work throughout.

Note that in this unit, the bath is downstairs from the bedroom and the air conditioning is only in the bedroom.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The dockyards area is well worth a visit and so is Falmouth Bay a short walk away. We stayed during the annual sailing races and having a close up view of some of the most beautiful sailing yachts in the world was a special pleasure.

Copper and Lumber Restaurant, a great find in Nelsons Historic Dockyard where all the a buzz of energy bringing new life to the old buildings.

We were lucky to be the first to try the new new outdoor eating terrace which soon became fully occupied. We had great service and excellent food so all in all a great al fresco experience but if preferred you can eat inside.

On Friday nights they hold a fish night where you can choose a selection of interesting dishes to go with the seafood main of your choice all at a very good price. Drinks are also excellent value, music and good company give a party atmosphere to the dock. A great way to spend a Friday Evening.

Room Tip: Sorry we didn't stay at the hotel but would advise to book a room overlooking the Marina Dock for great views. The whole area is very quiet after 11pm and helpful, friendly security guards patrol after dark. We have found the whole area to be very friendly and safe.

we stayed in a room early last summer. eloise and her gang on the hotel side are just wonderful. our room had fantastic a/c (you need in june!), a television that had some good cable stations (a rarity in antigua), and the room was clean and well presented every day.
we stayed in a suite, which means we had a little living area downstairs & a kitchenette, which was useful!
the only thing we were left wanting for was water. i know water is expensive in antigua, but it would have been great if there had been a couple of bottles of water in our room every night, as the kitchen was usually closed (late in the season). there was a good selection of tea, but water was something we had to either ask (and pay) for, or we had to buy it ourselves & stock our fridge...thus the kitchenette was "useful!"
the history of the building is palpable. unfortunately, the kitchen isn't fabulous, but they do a good job. however, the FRIDAY NIGHT SEAFOOD is a MUST...the conch water particularly. they don't have copper & lumber as a restaurant to review, but hopefully if you're reading this, you will put the seafood night on your list!!!
we have been to antigua for over 20 years, and this is one of our most favourite places to stay. but be warned, in the season, it might be loud. the dockyard is getting to be a more popular venue these days, and there are lots of events scheduled. look up what's happening before you go, but if you want to be right in the thick of things, this is the place! and by april, may & june, it's pretty sleepy and very peaceful.

Room Tip: choose a suite whenever possible! and if it's late in the season, ask for a discount!

A lovely old dockyard building that has been restored and converted to form hotel accommodation. A lot of character and period features have been retained, adding to the charm of a vacation in this historic dockyard.
The hotel is now a little dated but still the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Downsides are there is no real restaurant for lunch or dinner, and breakfast can be a bit variable, also the staff are not really hospitality savvy, they try hard but the service is a little ad hoc.
We were there for three weeks with yatch charter week in the middle and there were a lot of functions in the hotel, that was ok but the staff would clatter about clearing up after evening functions without regard for residents trying to sleep and then wake us very early moving furniture around again as they set up for the day.
For all that it was a great break in a lovely setting, don’t let ,me put you off, if you like relaxing in an historic setting then this could be for you.
