I give this a 5 plus! The location was TERRIFIC! We came in on the Victoria Clipper from Seattle and it was literally right across the street to the right of the Ferry Terminal. We could see the Empress at night, the harbor and the main tourist attractions are only 2-3 blocks away. We chose a suite with kitchen facilities... More

Perfect position right in Victoria. Initially we were a bit hesitant as it was not expensive but could not fault this property. Large rooms, great views, staff very helpful, buffet breakfast. Highly recommended

it is at a very good location with a view of The Empress hotel. The staff are very friends and the breakfast is nice. The soft bed is bad because the mattress is too soft and facility in kichten still need to improve.

Well, that was a lovely review. Thank you. I will let the staff know that you love them and give hugs all round. The people responsible for the garden were positively beaming when I mentioned your praise. We hope you will come join us again soon. Have a great rest of the summer. More

Rooms are clean and spacious. The kitchen is equipped with all the appliances you need in a kitchen. There is plenty of storage space in bedrooms. Bedroom opened up onto a balcony outside so cute.

We stayed in a double room with kitchen facilities at the beginning of June. The room was somewhat cramped with furniture, but it was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom, whilst clean, was outdated and the sink tap a challenge to turn on! The little balcony was nice to sit on, but it bothered us that it... More

Thank you for taking the time to let others know your critique and that you would like to stay with us again. For your next visit, their is a safety latch on the sliding door, that allows air flow but is not large enough for a person to enter. This will prove useful during our summer nights. We hope to...

The suite I stayed in was clean and spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped with large fridge, stove and microwave oven. There is plenty of storage space in the bedroom and the room itself opens onto a little balcony. The gardens are bright, colourful and very well maintained. The free breakfast was just adequate but since it was provided... More

This was our fourth stay at the Admiral Inn dating back to the mid `80's. It's showing its age in places, but it's a wonderful place to stay at very good prices. A very short walk to Fisherman's wharf or the restaurants and shops surrounding the inner harbor. The staff seemed to always be smiling.......getting our day off to a... More

Thank you for your response. So pleased that your fifth visit to our Inn was enjoyable and that you will return. We are putting some light rouge on the old duchess. New bed coverlets with contrasting bedscarf with matching pillows. We also have new carpets throughout the rooms. These touches seem to have given the rooms a fresh new look.... More

This hotel is old but very clean. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Location is just 2 steps to waterfront. The mattresses in our room were old and not so comfortable. Anyway, if the price is right, it's good place for several nights in Victoria. Definitely will consider it again for the next visit.

We stayed at the Admiral Inn for three nights in May 2015. The staff was always helpful when we had questions. The room (306) was large and very clean. Although we did not opt for the water view room, our outdoor balcony gave us a nice view of the harbor and downtown area. Room was very clean. Bathroom was quite... More

A good place to stay, a close walk to the inner harbour. The rooms are spacious with a full kitchen. The room was very clean, excellent houskeeping. Also, they have bicycles for riding around the area. Would recommend as a good place with good value for the room rates.
