This is an older hotel with an old world charm. Well located just a short walk from the harbour. The rooms are a generous size, very comfortable bed, nice hot showers. Comes with a complimentary breakfast in the dining room, can be very busy so judge your time, there is also a patio you can sit and eat. We had... More

We stayed at the Admiral Inn for three nights in a king suite, and it was perfect for us. It is within walking distance of anything you'd want to do in the harbor. There was a patio off of the bedroom with a little table and chairs, so we could enjoy the nice evenings. The suite had a full size... More

We chose to stay at the Admiral Inn because of its proximity to Victoria's inner harbour/downtown area. We flew in by Harbour Air from Vancouver to Victoria and were able to walk from the float plane terminal to the Admiral Inn with absolutely no problem at all. Not having a car on this trip was just fine as everything we... More

We are glad you chose to stay with us. What a lovey way to enter Victoria. Isn't the scenery magnificent from the air? Although you don't really need a shuttle bus to get from the Harbour Air terminal , it is good to know that they do have a free one that will drop you right at our front door.... More

We've been back to Admiral Inn and found it even better than in 2011. Staff are terrific and the rooms although slightly dated in decor very clean and roomy. They put on a great breakfast down close to the foyer and there's a computer for emailing friends or family. It's a short walk up from the Clipper ferry from Seattle... More

Bottom line, it's our favorite place to stay in Victoria which we visit almost annually from California. It's dog-friendly, has a full kitchen which suits our dietary needs. We had a problem with an elderly bed which was promptly replaced, and the wifi and basic TV work really well. And it's so close to everything in the center of town;... More

Just let us know in advance and we will make sure they are made available. With the growing demand of the Wifi, what with net flick... More

We stayed two nights in this quaint hotel just outside the downtown core but within a 10 min. walk of all the major downtown attractions. This included the walk along the sea pathway to Fisherman's Warf, the pathway started right at the back of the hotel. the room was cosy, spacious and had a balcony with table and chairs overlooking...

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel and I really enjoyed it. The staff were extremely helpful and always had a smile on their faces. This is not your conventional hotel. Most rooms have kitchenettes, and mine was a large room with a view of Victoria's Inner Harbour. Other reviews mention that the hotel is outdated. It might be so,... More

Great location, walking distance to almost all the places in Victoria BC. The room is very spacious, clean and with a view of the bay, also has a full kitchen. Free parking and no charge for the roll out bed a very nice when you need more sleeping space. But no fitness center or swimming pool. Overall it is a... More

We decided to book a Best View room in the Admiral Inn for 3 nights to explore Victoria and we did not regret a single moment of it. The hotel has a bit of a motel kind of look, especially at the backside and it could use a modernization. But in the end the location and the value for money... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Even though it is not the most "modern" hotel, it has a clean bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. The kitchen comes with a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, necessary cooking utensils, including pots and pans, service for 4 including plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, silverware, a dish draining board, and kitchen...
