How to Get There
This is our 4th time staying in English Harbour, 1st time at the Inn - B&B
We totally loved it.
Quiet, gentle, tasteful and friendly with mainly middle - older aged people. Probably not suitable for children unless they’re up for not a lot o stimulations.
Lovely beach to walk on (Galleon) with a little shack/ beach restaurant (independent) to escape to if you want a bit more life.
Breakfast had a lovely selection, with afternoon tea available included in B&B costs.
Rooms in a traditional classy colonial style and were large and clean - with the genuine shabby chic look.
The hotel has a water taxi to take you into English harbour during the day which takes two minutes if that and several waterside restaurants will come to the hotel to collect you in their boats too.
We will definitely be back !
Perfect position, nestling on a good beach near the historical Nelson's Dockyard
and within a National Park. Breakfast and lunch: Excellent. Dinner can be very
good if one selects carefully. On a few occasions the dinner courses were tepid and this
could be remedied.
The men and women who work here are genuine and with good humour; it would be
invidious to select names but Kente must be highly commended for tending to the
luxuriant gardens, plants, trees and 'wow' factor swimming pool.
This hotel can be praised for its attention to detail, service and small touches such as
the 'concierge' organisation of requested trips or dinners at local restaurants.
There is a memorable sense of tranquility and relaxation.
One concludes that this is a rara avis of a hotel, literally at peace with the
frigate birds and pelicans which fly past. The Inn can be highly recommended for its food, services, position and care for individual requests.
We wanted a quiet, relaxing place and we found it here. The beach was delightful and the setting excellent. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was spacious and comfortable but a bit old-fashioned. We had trouble with the toilet for several days until they finally could fix it and they never were able to fix the light in our shower. Annoyances but did not detract from the overall vacation. However, while the lunch menu had many choices and the food often quite good, the same cannot be said for dinner. The menu was limited and the preparation mediocre at best. Fortunately, there are many very good restaurants not far away and we would suggest going out to dinner versus eating on the property.
So, would I come back? Possibly, but plan dinners out each night
Well this was indeed a beautiful place - looking out to the boats moored in the bay....very nice rooms, very friendly staff, good service, reasonable food and facilities. 4 star - not 5 star. Ideal, if you're happy to spend your holiday with a handful of customers who are obviously enjoying their mid and later retirement years - and why not .....but not the best place if you're looking for a little more going on, a slightly younger crowd to meet with and perhaps a more interesting evening menu.....during our visit it was generally very quiet over the 10 days, it was less than half full, evening restaurant sometimes only had one couple dining and bar - which was very nice, was empty all the time .....the weekly BBQ was good ....so make sure it's what you're looking for in a holiday - most of the customers we did meet have been back to the hotel several times - so they obviously enjoy it. Not for us and not cheap - certainly most people went out for their evening meal to some good local restaurants ... ( not all good) ....also a very British clientele.....so, as I say, really just depends on what you're looking for I guess ...
Stayed here in early January and the resort is stunning, it’s everything a Caribbean hotel should look like,beautiful white sand in a perfect bay. Plenty of sun beds and the staff are lovely. The only problem is the food, it’s awful! The beech bar is fine but the main restaurant is terrible do yourself a favour don’t go for the half board option as there are loads of great restaurants a short taxi ride away in nelsons dockyard the best is Catherine cafe it’s awesome.
