Stayed in one of the Gunpowder House suites for a few nights at the tail-end of our trip. Beautiful, beautiful spot in the English Harbour! Close enough to enough restaurants, bars, and beaches that you can walk; secluded location makes it feel special and not crowded at all. Couldn't have been happier!!

We booked this hotel as we wanted 5 quiet days before moving to an all inclusive resort in the north. This is the most amazing place, so relaxed and chilled and the staff made us feel so welcome. Our room was exactly as we saw it on the web site. Large and cool with a massive bathroom and wonderful balcony with beautiful views. The pool area is very cool with sun-beds and cabanas and towels are provided. There is a great restaurant (Boom) next to the pool which is open to guests and general public alike so booking is strongly recommended as it is very popular. Food is really good albeit a little expensive. But you are paying for the fabulous location. All of the staff in particular Melinda & Chenise were so attentive and relaxed. It was a wonderful stay and wouldn’t hesitate to come again. Food is not included which makes you do a little wandering which is really good. Lots of amazing local restaurants a 5 minute stroll away.

Entirely exceeded our expectations. The staff did everything they could to ensure our stay was perfect. It's so refreshing to go to a hotel and never hear "No". Our room was in the historic building with a view over the pool and harbour below. Parking is on the same level and boat was avaiable to take us to the beach or resturants. Everything interesting is a close walk away and taxis are fairly cheap to go further afield.
