Really fantastic place to stay in English Harbour. Highly recommended and very friendly staff. Great vibe and live music at Admirals Inn where you can also stay and where check in happens. Great complimentary boat and or car service (if after 7pm) over to Gunpowder house which is more secluded than Admirals. Lots of bars & restaurants nearby in walking distance, and right next to Nelson’s dockyard. Because you’re in the harbour this isn’t a great place for ocean swimming access although it’s likely easy to find a beach nearby with a car. We stayed for one night to end our trip but a few more would have been lovely.
