The Inn at English Harbour

Inn at English Harbour

With only 28 rooms set within 19 acres of Antigua’s National Park, this stylish boutique hotel has a feeling of privacy and seclusion but is only a few minutes from Nelson’s Dockyard.

Owned and lovingly cared for by an Italian family, it’s full of old fashioned charm and character blending colonial heritage with Italian style. The hotel has great views of historic English Harbour and offers a wonderfully relaxed ambience.

Our rating: Deluxe

The hotel’s 28 rooms and suites are elegantly furnished and well equipped with air conditioning, a ceiling fan, flat screen TV, iPod docking station, minibar and a private balcony or terrace.


The Inn at English Harbour is located on the south coast of the island at the entrance to English Harbour, one of the most delightful and picturesque parts of Antigua. The hotel sits on a pretty, golden-sand beach with calm, crystal waters.

Historic Nelson’s Dockyard is just ten minutes' drive away and the hotel also offers a water taxi service there during the day. As well as the historic buildings and remains of the dockyard, Nelson's Dockyard also has shops, bars, restaurants and often very lively nightlife in high season or during any boating event. However, please note that many of these facilities close in low season.

Food and drink

The Terrace Restaurant, set on the hillside overlooking the gardens and English Harbour, offers a beautiful setting for alfresco candlelit dining. Adjacent to the restaurant, the cosy Stone Bar, full of memorabilia from Antigua’s maritime past, is perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail. Please note that gentlemen are required to wear long trousers when dining in the hotel's main restaurant.

Breakfast and lunch is served at The Reef Bar & Restaurant down by the beach, which offers a more casual ambience.

If you want to dine outside the hotel, there are plenty of restaurants at Nelson’s Dockyard complex, which is ten minutes by taxi. Please note that many of Nelson's Dockyard's outlets close in the low season so we'd advise calling ahead or asking the advice of the hotel.


The Inn at English Harbour does not provide facilities specifically for children, and their guests tend to be couples or older families, so the hotel is less suitable for children under the age of ten years.

Local excursions

The Inn can help to organise many excursions, but popular options include nearby English Harbour which offers an alluring blend of history and charm, or the Sunday gathering at nearby Shirley Heights to watch the sunset.

Our opinion

This beautiful hotel offers an ideal location overlooking picturesque English Harbour and within easy reach of Nelson's Dockyard.

The combination of a great location, beautiful setting and elegant plantation style make this an excellent choice for any stay on Antigua.
