Thank you Admiralty team for such a warm welcome, Lisa was so friendly prior to arrival we already felt welcome, and even more so when we got there. So accommodating and the rooms were spacious and very nicely appointed. Hot water and a good bed with fresh linen is what is needed to make a perfect stay at a Guest... More

What a great experience! The hosts were so nice and helpful, gave us great recommendations, and made us feel like family. The rooms were great - very spacious. We had a great location, comfortable beds and showers, and beautiful scenery. We loved it!

Me and my partner visited P.E. for a few days and this is the place to stay. Beautiful spacious rooms, amazing breakfast,Clean and to top that extremely friendly service. Everything was great. The thing that stood out for me personally is the privacy, this is one of the key elements which made our stay at Admiralty Beach House even better.

What a excellent stay for the business down to PE. The rooms are very well equipped, and spacious, plus the view from my colleges room was beautiful. Breakfast was the highlight of the day, with a great selection of cold "staters", followed by a lovely full house breakfast! Thanks for the hospitality!

My husband and I stayed at the Admiralty Beach House last month for 3 nights on our way to Knysna and I honestly cannot fault a single thing. The service and staff were impeccable. The Guest House itself is so tastefully decorated, and our room 'The Waves' was just so beautiful. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have... More

Don't think of staying anywhere else! The staff, the rooms, the attention to detail, the food, the location and the ambiance make this B&B the best in the country for my money. I can fully recommend it, having stayed there many times, and the outstanding quality of service has never faltered - it is also outstanding value for money. The... More

Beautiful property, friendly efficient service and the best value for money I have experienced. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was superb!

Thank you Lisa for a very friendly welcome and attentive service. I cannot agree that this is a 5Star establishment. The rooms and bathrooms are large however the noise level from the traffic is not pleasant, the mats in my room could do with a clean, furnishings could be refreshed. The breakfast was ok however tinned fruit is not acceptable... More

This was the best accommodation we found in South Africa ( apart from the luxury safari lodge). It was absolutely gorgeous from the warm welcome, the spotlessly clean beautifully decorated rooms , the outlook over the pool and garden, the astonishing and delicious breakfast and the friendly host.
