Admiral's Inn was great. The Inn is older with character. You could hear people above moving around but they don't have kid's sports teams stay, so the noise was genteel. The Owners and people who worked there were more than helpful. The owner looked up what the bus fare would be and gave the exact fare from our money. I... More

Very clean property. Beds comfortable in a good sized room. The complimentary continental breakfast served in the lounge was delicious. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. This property is excellent in value especially for a hotel that is situated right on the waterfront. Would definitely stay there again.

Great value, downtown location we could easily walk to downtown, the rooms were clean, had a good breakfast. Tea in the afternoon. Plus the staff was helpful and friendly. What more do you need. We'll be back soon

I recognize your picture with the snake. It is unforgettable. Thank you so much for your continued support and glowing comments. You are right, we are much busier than we have been in the past, but we still enjoy each and everyone of our guests. I will let all the staff know how much you appreciated them and the cleanliness...

This is my third review of the Admiral Inn and I am happy to provide a more up to date one. However I am also tempted to not be glowing because this place is getting far too popular! Maybe it was better as Victoria's Best Kept Secret for places to stay so those of us who love it will not... More

Long term rates for 3 weeks, great location and rates, the room was just what we wanted with full kitchen and parking. Very comfy and handy. Nice sunny mornings, outside patio. View of harbour. Great folks. Sweet.

I've been staying at the Admiral Inn for over 15 years and it's my favourite place to stay in Victoria. There are fancier (more expensive) places to stay in Victoria but you can't beat the location. I park my vehicle and it doesn't move for days, everything I want to see and do is within walking distance. The front desk... More

Our room's heater was broken and we got in late because we went to Butchart Gardens to see the Christmas lights. They sent someone to fix it. He made numerous attempts to fix it. After quite some time when nothing seemed to be working and we wanted to go to bed, we asked the front desk for a new room.... More

I remember your happy group when you checked in. I am sorry that the happy mood did not continue during your stay. I would love if you would try us again sometime. If you do, please contact me directly. We apologize for the heater breakdown. They are a combination heater AC unit, thus they vent to the outside. The unseasonal... More

My family and I visit Victoria once or twice a year. We acquired a small dog 8 years ago - so, had to find another 'regular' accommodation that offered pet-friendly rooms, but was very close to the Inner Harbour. We found the Admiral and have never looked back. Admittedly, the Admiral's decor is starting to look a wee bit tired... More

Close to Royal Victoria Museum and COHO Ferry. I had a conference at the conference centre the next day. Very handy. Found the property very clean with friendly staff. This is a new place to stay for me when in Victoria.

Well located near ferry dock, wharf, government house and museums. Tired decor is more than offset by spaciousness of the units. Staff was very helpful, eager to tell us places to visit in Victoria. Kitchen in unit makes this a great place for a multi-day stay.
