Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had been in Antigua for business and had moved around the island during the 2 weeks of our stay. Copper & Lumber was by far the best hotel for quality of room and value for money.

Gillian who was our main point of contact during our stay was fabulous, as was Brenda and Cornelius ( I hope I got that right!) All of the reception staff were super efficient, booking our covid test when it was out of hours and where also very friendly. We stayed for 5 night. The first room we had was called Hardy - a large split level room, with small kitchenette, large living area on one floor with tons of storage, a bathroom on the half landing and a large bedroom with vaulted ceiling on the top floor, far more space than we actually needed, and although lovely it was VERY dark with no view. After we decided to stay for a little longer I requested to be moved to a room with more light and a bit of a view , we were given a room called Brittania , all one level, again with a kitchenette, sofa, dining table and incredible views over the super yachts, perfect .It also had a great bathroom with a recently renovated shower stall, lots of lovely dark wood, which made you feel you were on a boat.The bed was comfy , little soft for my personal preference and did creak a lot when you turned over at night.The rooms are traditionally furnished with dark wood furniture, maritime themed pictures with classical soft furnishings, as you would expect from a hotel of this age, everything was very tasteful.

We didn't eat in the hotel, but breakfast was included and is served on the terrace overlooking the yachts.

We thought that were some missed oppertunities for additional income and would have loved to have seen traditional afternoon tea served on the lawn, something that is very popular on other Caribbean islands and would have fitted the hotel and its setting, as well as bringing in additional revenue.

The hotel is situated in Nelsons Dock Yard, A UNESCO World heritage site, the buildings within the dockyard are all spectacular, steeped in history.It is a short walk to a few bars and a small supermarket and about a 7 minute walk into English Harbour which has a larger selection of restaurants and bars.

We stayed in 5 hotels during our time in Antigua and this was by far the best for quality, service, location and value.

Thank you to all the lovely staff at this super hotel, your boss should be proud of you!

The hotel was empty when we arrived…Antigua was just coming out of its latest lockdown and associated curfew restrictions and, as a result, the hotel had been through some restoration/redecoration work. That meant the facilities weren’t fully functioning - no bar, no restaurant. In fact we were the only guests for the entire three days…a unique experience. Nevertheless, Brenda and Claudius made us feel most welcome. In fact, Claudius seemed to be there 24/7! Once they got over the shock of having guests again, nothing could be too much trouble - breakfast was brought to the room on a daily basis (an extended continental with additional items we requested) as there was no restaurant, and on one night Claudius played music outside our room to serenade my wife as we drank wine and ate a platter of meats and cheeses. We also saw them prep beautifully for a rehearsal dinner (inc fireworks) one evening, for a couple who were getting married nearby. As for the hotel itself, it is a period property that is traditionally decorated and furnished as such…do not expect a modern contemporary feel. But it was a treat to stay somewhere so atmospheric, that imbued that sense of history. We loved it. Thank you Brenda and Claudius!

This was our first visit to Antigua and we loved all 4 days! We are adventurous and rented a car for the entire trip to make the most of the small island. Our stay at the Copper and Lumber Store was excellent. With only 14 rooms, it allowed the Hotel to offer a personalized experience for us. The Royal Sovereign Room was large, had a kitchenette and beautiful views of the dockyard. Maurisa, was a very friendly, courteous and helpful and constantly ensuring that we had everything we needed. Her knowledge of the island was evident and definitely assisted us in planning our daily itineraries.

We would highly recommend these accommodations. As a couple in their 40s, we found the hotel clean, quiet and in a very convenient location, while offering all the amenities you could ask for in this type of establishment.

I just can't say enough about the warmth of the staff at this place. We were welcomed by Gilli (sorry if misspelled) and throughout our stay she made us feel like family. We really felt liked she cared about us and our happiness. She and all the rest of the team there were absolutely wonderful.

The place itself is gorgeous and it so cool to be in such a historic building. We had the 2-level suite which was wonderful as my mom and I could be on separate levels (which would also be great for families). The wood floor and all the finishing touches were exceptional. It also had an amazing range of tv channels (of course you don't come to Antigua to watch TV but when you can catch your football team playing in the playoffs on one of their channels, it is a big bonus!).

I highly recommend this hotel, and would like to say a special thanks to all the staff there.

I booked my stay at the Copper Lumber Store Hotel six months in advance through Booking.com, looking forward to a pleasant visit in February. Unfortunately, my experience was far from what I had anticipated, leading to significant inconvenience and frustration.

A day before my scheduled arrival, I decided to confirm my reservation directly with the hotel. To my dismay, I was initially informed that they had no record of my booking. Concerned, I contacted Booking.com, who after some communication, confirmed that my reservation did indeed exist but was informed by the hotel that they could not accommodate me due to being fully booked.

The hotel's handling of the situation was utterly disappointing. Not only was there a lack of sympathy or understanding for the inconvenience caused by their oversight, but their response also came off as rude and dismissive. The message was clear: it was my problem to solve, not theirs. This lack of responsibility and customer service is not what one would expect from a reputable hotel.

As a result of this last-minute notification, I was forced to find alternative accommodation, which ended up costing me three times more than my original booking. This not only put a financial strain on my travel budget but also added unnecessary stress to what was supposed to be a well-planned trip.

In summary, the experience I had with Copper Lumber Store Hotel was highly unsatisfactory. The lack of communication, poor customer service, and inability to honor a confirmed reservation reflect poorly on their management and operations. I would caution potential guests to consider these factors seriously when making their accommodation choices.

Nice and very relaxing spot. Rooms comfortable and simple. The service though is questionable. 30 min to have the pastries after reminders and this every morning. Make sure you have time. Breakfast is also poor, if you want some eggs you shall pay extra, it is exaggerated. Anyway enjoy the landscape and the wonderful WH site !

We came to stay at the Copper & Lumber hotel to be ready to welcome my daughter when she rowed into English Harbour at the end of her solo row across the Atlantic! The position is second to none, and the quiet atmosphere of the hotel perfect for appreciating the beauty, splendour and history of the historic Nelson’s dockyard where this hotel is situated. We all absolutely loved staying here, the rooms were simply yet elegantly furnished and all slightly different which was fun. We ended up extending our stay as we loved the hotel so much, and I would return anytime with great joy . The staff were all generally very helpful , bright and cheerful, with beautiful smiling Gillian on reception lightening our every day, and also Claudius , Michelle, Edward and many more .. thank you all for your kindness and attention to detail .. My daughter Lara, who rowed the Atlantic loved being there too, so all in all a great lucky experience . Thank you ❤️🙏 see you again x

We went to stay in the Copper and Lumber after a few nights staying with family on a boat in English Harbour. The rooms are lovely - lots and lots of space - and the historic building is beautifully renovated. The staff were lovely, warm and accommodating - we enjoyed it so much we went back for a second night. English Harbour is a great base and there’s plenty of cafes, shops, bakeries and restaurants within walking distance. The museum is also next door. Highly recommend.

Immediately after checking in, we were told we would be moved to another much cheaper hotel after the first 2 nights for renovations. We were not made aware of this in the weeks leading up to the reservation, only an 'oh by the way' comment after we had settled into the room. Workmen woke us up early both days of our stay there as renovations were already occurring, and as you can see from the pictures they did not wait for us to check out before starting. Gets two stars instead of one because hotel itself is beautiful when not covered in work equipment.

Dear Bertamus47, Thank you so much for taking time out to post a review about your stay with us. I would be the first to admit that yes we drop the ball in not informing you of the move to a nearby hotel before arriving onsite, and for that l do apologise. Refurbishing work to the hotel was running behind schedule and so in my best judgement and expressed in your review not yet ready to best serve the needs of our guest. Had everything gone according to plan, a call was to have been placed to you informing you of this. With the refurb work now behind us, we look forward to welcoming you back for a return visit. Be sure to drop me a note, so that l can personally see to your room assignment. Best regards, Vernon.

Booked for New Year, meant to be the highlight of our stay in Antigua. What a let down.
Firstly, we didn't notice the tax in the small print of the reservation. Our fault, as we're getting old. However, when we were shown our room (Contemporary Studio) it was absolutely hideous and different from the photographs on their website that we used as a basis for booking.
This hotel has so much history it is utterly wasted on the present owners and management.
