  • 6.0.Good

    Pros: The location staying at Nelson's Dockyard was amazing. The history and architecture of the surrounding buildings was nice to see. Unfortunately due to covid most dockyard things were either closed or felt underwhelming, but that is no fault of Admiral's. They offer a free water taxi shuttle across the bay to Gunpowder Suites, which has the more lively bar scene and also the only pool. Free parking, strong wifi signal, hot shower, great iron were all a plus. The room is as it looks in photos so it was quaint and does have a beautiful harbor view. Cons: I stayed in the standard room, which is the smallest of all rooms and is located on the top floor (or otherwise known as the 3rd floor/attic). There is no elevator so individuals who have issues with stairs should not select this room. The room is listed as 160sq ft, and definitely feels extremely tiny. Part of the room is unusable due to the third floor roof trusses slanting inward preventing you from stand up in a portion of the room. The room is listed as sleeping two, but i would certainly not recommend this room for two people unless all you are going to do is sleep in the bed. The restroom only fits one person and does have the largest lip (i.e., riser to step into the shower i ever saw). The riser Unfortunately cuts the standing height of the shower so individuals who are tall such as 6 feet and above will feel claustrophobic in the shower. The room had no TV, refrigerator, or safe :(

    Very cute hotel, and a very nice and relaxing area. Exactly what i'd hoped for... Negatives were I did not have hot water when I showered in the morning. Breakfast is 15usd and includes a dish, coffee/tea, and a juice. When I asked for a cappuchino and then an americano (and no juice) I did not expect to be charged extra.

    Shame about the room, otherwise stunning.

    The facilities around Admirals Inn are amazing and one of the most beautiful places we have stayed at. However, the room we stayed in was very small, not helped by the sloping roof which meant to reach the other side of the bed you had to crouch. The bathroom was also tiny and made it hard for two people to coexist. We also found a lot of hair in our shower from the previous tenants which is never acceptable. There are other rooms available and these do look much nicer, however for the amount per night charged you would expect 5 star facilities anywhere in the world. The restaurant and pool, which are 5 star facilities, are accessible by the general public so our review has to be entirely based on the hotel room. Staff overall was very friendly.
