Set overlooking a beautiful bay The Inn At English Harbour is a lovely hotel.If you are looking for somewhere to get away and find peace and tranquility then this is it. We spent a lovely 8 nights here in May.
With only 27 rooms there is always plenty of space on the beach, around the pool and in the restaurant. The hotel is split into 2 levels. Reception, main restaurant and a bar are at the top,of the hill, with the rooms, pool and beachside restaurant down below. A shuttle transports you up and down the hill, sounds a hassle but it really wasn't as you just ring for the shuttle and it's there before you know it. Breakfast and lunch are taken down down at the beach restaurant and evening meals up top. We had many lazy lunches with a bottle of Rose watching the yachts come and go in the bay.The views at night on the terrace of the restaurant are spectacular. Our only gripe was that they didn't open the beach restaurant at night for dinner, other than one night for a barbecue. Seems a shame to be have a restaurant by the sea and not open it at night.
The staff are fantastic, Wesley, Neil, Sherilynn, Tamara,Ocean to name a few,but all are terrific.
If you want a change of scene you can always hop on the hotel water taxi to English Harbour, about 10 mins away. Lots of bars and restaurants as well as the historic dockyards. Vere who skippers it is a real gent and will point out various sites on route.
One issue that needs addressing is the pool, tiles looking very dirty and needs some urgent attention, not appealing for swimming.
Oh yes and the rooms are great, very colonial looking, very spacious with lovely big bathrooms. Michelle who is in charge of house keeping is lovely and has a great team who keep your room spotless.
Hope to be back soon.
