Admiral’s Inn situated in Nelson’s Dockyard is a wonderful hotel with prime views overlooking Antigua’s truly iconic location. Rooms are stylishly decorated and give a real feeling for the era when the dockyard was at its peak. Lack of some amenities eg minibar, kettle was a little irritating - particularly as the local curfew made meals and refreshments more challenging. What lets this hotel down is the food. Breakfast was reminiscent of a basic south coast B&B - a menu presented on a scrappy laminated sheet offered restrictive options and the delivery was disappointing and poor value (tip: go to the Bakery in the dockyard for great pastries and sandwiches). The Caribbean dinner was more disappointing with a tasteless fried plantain (banana family) starter, a shrimp and rice main which had no inspiration and a basic fried banana desert - all for an expensive restaurant price tag it didn’t justify. We got the feeling that something is not quite right with the management of the hotel. This should be a 5 star establishment but it does fall short.

The hotel looks amazing in the photographs so we simply had to stay here whilst in English Harbour. The location is great for a quick walk into the main area of restaurants and bars or to walk to Pigeon Point beach,as we didn't want to have a car with us the whole duration of our stay on the island. The common areas are tastefully decorated with a great seating area overlooking the water. Breakfast was good ( for the Caribbean) and not expensive, the coffee served in the morning was also good- VERY rare it seems in Caribbean! We had room 4, very average for the price, very small and a poor quality bathroom with old/ dated tiles on the wall, something I can imagine you would find in a cheap B&B in Brighton - it overlooked the car park and we found it to be rather loud early in the morning when the staff arrived for work. The bath towels were small and thin and not of good quality. I would not recommend this room. Yes it was one of the cheaper options but given the hotel was pretty quiet I find it hard to believe this was the best of the entry level rooms.

All the staff were lovely and very helpful, we extended and extended again ( because of the location and convenience not because of the room!) and it was not a problem.

We enjoyed the pool across the water at Gun Powder Suites.

On the whole its a lovely hotel, shame the owner does not add a few little touches - quality products in the bathroom ( Clarins / Hermes) better quality pillows ( awful foam ones did not afford a good nights sleep) quality large towels and perhaps robes and slippers, appreciate that these all add costs to a room but its the little touches that are often missed.

We enjoyed our stay here, but there are other hotels with better quality rooms at a better price, very close by - maybe not with the vibe of The Admirals, but you can always pop in for a drink if thats what you are looking for.

Room tip: Dont accept room 4

We were visiting Antigua for work & decided to have lunch at BOOM restaurant - one of the restaurants at Admirals Inn, when we decided to get married at the Pillars restaurant! With all the craziness of the past year, a quiet wedding on a tropic island was perfect. Shana helped to facilitate everything and it was honestly such a pleasure working with her! The wedding day was a big success, very relaxed bride and groom (thanks to the wonderful staff at the hotel & restaurant) and merry guests! The food, drinks, and atmosphere were amazing and we could not have asked for a better day! We had also originally booked a standard room at the Admiral's Inn but we were upgraded to one of the Gunpowder Suites - what a magnificent view over the bay! Thank you to everyone at The Admirals Inn who made our day so special, we are forever grateful!

We had the most fantastic stayed at Admirals and were so sad to leave. The hotel, location, views, bedrooms and amenities are all stunning and immaculate. Shama especially was so helpful and kind. The views from the gunpowder suites are unreal and I highly recommend staying in one of these as a couple - right in the middle of all the action and fun! Food and drinks were exceptional. This hotel comes highly recommended. Thank you for looking after us!!

We have just returned from a gorgeous stay at this beautiful and elegant hotel. I think it might actually be one of my all time favourites. Wonderful staff add to this gem of a hotel in the magnificent Nelson's Dockyard.
