First off, this inn was booked by another couple in our group, so not our 1st choice. The location is good, just around the corner and a short walk from the harbour and they do have bikes that you can use. The continental breakfast is good - hard boiled eggs (cold), toast, mini-muffins, cold cuts, cheese, yogurt, a couple choices... More

The Admiral offers value accommodation in one of the best locations in Victoria. A family suite comprising a king bed in one room and a queen plus sofa bed in the other (together with kitchenette) was a spacious and convenient combination at under CAD200 a night for two friends travelling together. It even included parking, wi-fi, free loan bikes, and... More

My wife and I have enjoyed here two days. It's four minutes on foot from the Parliament building. Friendly staff, free bicycles, clean room, and modest breakfast make you trip comfortable. There are a few good restaurants around, but you need to make reservations in advance.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It means a lot to us to know what our guests think. During this particularly busy summer, I think your advice to make a reservation at the popular nearby restaurants is a good idea. We hope to welcome you back again and again so this may be your home away from home. More

This place seems to be family-run and they are all very helpful. It is a budget motel, but they go to a lot of trouble with supplies, breakfast, bikes, and the location cannot be better, with balconies off the rooms as well. As long as you don't go there with expectations that it might be like the other hotels in... More

My boyfriend and I had planned for a late arrival but actually caught a ferry hours before our original arrival time and when we arrived at the hotel the woman up front was very warm and friendly and quickly checked us in. Our room was very spacious given the excellent price we paid for a holiday weekend! The continental breakfast... More

Unless you absolutely have to stay in a luxury boutique hotel, Admiral Inn should be your choice of accommodation for your overnight stay in Victoria! Although this hotel is relatively basic, it has everything for a comfortable stay. The biggest plus is that despite its much lower prices than the hotels, Admiral Inn still has the perfect location as it... More

So, taking into consideration that most hotels inside the Victoria Centre are very expensive the Admiral Inn was just what we were looking for. Approximately 3 minutes walking distance from the Empress and Gov't building, it was just far enough from the action to have some piece and quiet. Yes the rooms are not the most modern but the cleanliness... More

We stayed in room 208, and ended up with bad backs as the bed needs replacing...that said the location could not be better for this price of accommodation in the middle of Victoria. From here it is walking distance to all that the inner Harbour area has to offer. We felt that the owners might not want to spend too... More

Thank you for your comments. They mean a lot to us. We appreciate that you enjoyed our location and value. All the beds in our hotel, except the doubles in the family suites only, (not as frequently used) are new. We do offer feather toppers for these beds, and if that is too soft, then the feather topper is removed.... More

This place is within easy walking distance of the ferry and city center attractions. We stayed for four nights and had a good view of the harbor from 308. The staff here bends over backwards to be accommodating. Free breakfast was good. Rooms were nicely cleaned each day. Great stay. The gripe I have is that the queen bed was... More

I stayed at the Admiral Inn for 3 nights on my trip to Victoria, and the people working the front desk were always very kind and helpful in answering all of my questions. As other reviewers have stated, the hotel is quite dated, and the furnishings look like my grandmother's. Maybe that is meant to be part of the charm... More
