If you want a true Antigua experience then this is your place. The hotel is fairly small with about 25 rooms and there is tons of character. You will find a few hidden alcoves and a lovely 2nd floor terrace to relax, read or have a drink as well as a library. The location is in a quiet area in the NE part of town and walkable everywhere. The rooms are very nice and large with all the amenities. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Not sure why but at night the terrace was not open when we wanted to have a drink and take in the view....maybe it was just slow so there was not a bartender working. I would suggest they have someone up there always to give guests the option. Other suggestion would be to install brighter lighting in the rooms as it can seem a bit dark. Overall great place and I would return for sure.
