“Characterful hotel by the harbour. The elegant rooms feature exposed beams, four-poster beds and wooden floors. Sun drenched terrace with large parasols overlooking Nelson's Dockyard, and charming restaurant serving local seafood. A wonderful spot to soak up the island's history & great for sailors.”

Antigua, the Caribbean: the perfect break

A good alternative for history buffs and those who don’t like the resort style of holidaying, this small, pretty building was built in 1788, four years after Nelson arrived in English Harbour. It was known as the Pitch and Tar Store – the ground floor was used to store pitch, turpentine and lead. Now it has a dozen bright, modern rooms and a spacious terrace overlooking the water, with an idyllic view of the yachts at anchor.
