This is a strange one - we stayed one night before a connecting flight to Guadeloupe and another night before the flight back to the UK.
The Cortsland Hotel is a good functional short stay hotel, reasonably close to the airport. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfy and the bathroom has good quality towels. There is also a fridge and TV in the room. The first room we stayed in had a far superior air conditioner - in the second room it was noisy and rather ineffective.
We had breakfast on the first morning which, while lacking in choice, was made fresh to order and tasted fine. When we returned for our final stay, as we arrived early evening, we were unable to have dinner, but were offered soup and bread as an alternative - we declined this and ordered a taxi into town and headed to 'The Beehive' - which was great.
The hotel is situated in a residential area and walking into town early evening on the first night, we ran the gauntlet past many gardens containing barking dogs, however, all were behind fences so it was not a problem to us, but be aware, if you are nervous of dogs, order a taxi - these dogs also do tend to bark throughout the night, so bring ear plugs.
The hotel grounds are just lovely, they are really quite extensive and extremely well maintained.
The staff were very courteous and helpful and while the hotel did not appear to have a bar that was open, you only had to ask at reception and beer and soft drinks were brought out to you. The hotel does have a pool but we didn't use it.
Many of the hotel guests are apparently, medical students so it did seem like we were the only people there - we did see one other couple on our first night but apart from that, the hotel appeared deserted.
We paid for a late check out before our evening flight home, so were able to make the most of our one day in Antigua and visited Nelson's Dockyard, which was great, and in hindsight, we wished we had spent less time in Guadeloupe and more time in Antigua - the people were so much more friendly and the service far superior.
The Cortsland Hotel was an economical choice for a couple of overnight stays and suited us fine, but when we return to Antigua (and we will) we would choose a hotel nearer to the beach, but if all you want is a night in a clean room with a comfy bed and lovely helpful staff, then I can recommend it.
