The Inn La Galleria was like a piece of Paradise on the outskirts of St.John's. It was so quiet and the view was magnificent over the coastline. It was within walking distance to a beach for a swim although over somewhat rough roads (but quite usual for the island as all the roads are in some disrepair). The local bus has a regular route with a stop quite handy to the hotel and the experience of riding with locals is something everyone should have and it is very cheap. Journey into St.John's was about 10-15 mins depending on no. of stops to be made. If staying for a length of time, I would recommend a hire car for convenience and seeing more of the island at an easier pace. I think hire cars were about $50 a day.
Breakfast was huge and graciously served at whatever time I required it. Mine host Gregory was there at all times to help me and as a lone female traveller, I felt quite comfortable and secure. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him, even waking me up at 5am to catch my plane!!! My time on Antigua was enjoyable and quite a slow down of pace after being in New York for the previous couple of weeks.
Access to the hotel could be a problem for people with any disabilities as their are a number of steep stairs and a very steep driveway.
The perfect spot for a restful holiday away from the trapping of a fancy resort type complex. A family run business who makes you feel quite at home.....
