For non package travellers who do not require being right on the beach, this is an excellent no frills hotel.
Make sure you request a room in the main house. We stayed in 6, but No. 1 is the best. The rooms are colonial in style and the superior rooms have air con. The bathrooms although small are spotless and the staff is really friendly.
The setting in Nelson Dockyard is fantastic and with a hire car you are a stones throw away from Shirley Heights, Harmony Hall (wonderful) and a myriad of excellent beaches. Visit Sweet T's for a delicious ice cream on your way home from the beach and stroll down to HQ2 for a faboulous evening meal.
The downside of not being right by the beach is far outweighed by the value for money and location of Admiral's Inn.
