My husband and I met with Valla Ann to do our wedding. When wemet her she smelledline whiskey. She also slurred her speech. She said it would be no problem to do our wedding. I did not hear from her I called numerous times and emailed. I eventually found someone else to do our wedding. She emailed me after the... More

I booked the Admiral Bicknell Suite here for the night of my wedding. The building is very pretty inside and out; however we had a very disappointing experience. First, the positives: the room was nice. Very large, a nice large tub, and a sitting room we didn't even use. Negatives: I'm not even sure where to start. I had scheduled... More

My husband surprised me for our anniversary with reservations to this historical bed and breakfast. One of the most romantic things he has ever done. We had the Cupola suite on the 3rd floor all to ourselves. Which includes a private little staircase up to the roof where there is a great little crow's nest kind of room overlooking the... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Admiral Bicknell Inn in the Cupola Suite. The house itself is beautiful; be sure to admire the special convex window panes from the other side of the street. Valla Ann, the innkeeper, is a gem. Her suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants were perfect for us, and her breakfasts are incredible, with... More

We bought a voucher on Living Social and enjoyed a wonderful night at this fabulous B & B, a 163 year old mansion. Our hostess, Valla Ann, was very kind, caring and attentive and her home cooked breakfast--thick slices of French toast topped with fresh fruit, nuts and whipped cream--was a decadent delight. The room was lovely, the bed was... More

Had a great weekend trip here from Cincinnati a while back and I would love to plan another weekend here. The house is cool and we stayed in the The Admiral Bicknell Suite, which was awesomely huge. Claw footed tub, no shower, but it matched the atmosphere. Our favorite part was hanging out at the pool on the hot weekend... More

The Inn is very beautiful and perfect for walking to town and the river, both 5 minute walk. The Inn feels very cozy and the most amazing part of this beautiful place is the Inn keeper, she is the nicest most caring and fun B&B owner I have ever met! She went out of her way to accommodate us and... More

Although the beds and bedding are excellent and the is innkeeper interesting and unique, the pictures and descriptions on the website are not indicative of our experience. The food is unremarkable and there are cleanliness issues outside the structure. We much enjoyed the Culbertson Mansion and the small town of New Albany; but it is doubtful that we would return...

We have only had the chance to stay at The Admiral once, but hope to return someday soon! The rooms are all beautiful! You feel as if you are back in the shipping boom era. Valla Ann was wonderful from start to finish. She was helpful and charming in her own unique way and with helpful sightseeing/dinning information for the... More
