We stayed in the main house and were very comfortable. The bed was large and there was aircon and a small ensuite. Exceptional service from friendly staff. Food at Boons was very good especially the lobster salad and chocolate brownie dessert.

The hotel is in a quiet area at the start of the historical harbour. References to its legacy are seen throughout the grounds and in the building, and added to the romance of the place.

Our harbourview room was on a corner, providing lots of light and a nice crossbreeze. It was also over the parking lot and restaurant area so it did become a bit loud early in the morning.

For three nights this was a nice choice for its proximity to the town's several reasonable restaurants, and for exploring the island which can be done in a day. Boom, the restaurant and pool across the water (accessible by a 30 second shuttle boat ride available at your convenience), is a great way to spend an afternoon. It doesn't open until 11 for drinks and towels, and does fill up quickly at lunch so reservations are recommended. The calamari is excellent.

If you have a larger physique, the bathroom will be a challenge. It is tiny. Water pressure was fine, hot water was hit or miss. The restaurant was fine, nothing extraordinary and hurting for good coffee and fresh juices. Service at the restaurant and throughout the hotel was good.

Recommended for a short stay.

Room tip: Go for a smaller room if you are just there to sleep, you'll not miss anything.

Wherever you turn in English Harbour you see something referring to Nelson, although he was only here for 3 years and before his major battles. Nevertheless, it matters not which Admiral this Inn is named for, as it is a lovely, historic building and a delightful hotel. After the welcoming rum punch on arrival, sitting looking out over the water at the Hotel's second restaurant, named 'Boom' as it is alongside the old Gunpowder House, remote for the obvious reason, we were shown to Room 1 which has the same views. The room is airy and light, with windows on two walls and we were very comfortable there. We ate in both restaurants, particularly enjoying lunch at 'Boom' and being looked after very well by Didier. Indeed, all the staff were most attentive and our thanks go to Linda, Reggie, Ariel, Cecil and Mark for making our stay so good. The only slight downside is that the shower room would benefit from an upgrade and a small fridge in the room would have been the icing on the cake.

Really warm and welcoming staff, lovely characterful room with super efficient aircon and a lovely patio (rooms A to D in annex). Fantastic facilities across the water with infinity pool, sun loungers and day beds. And the excellent Boom restaurant. Inn itself has lovely indoor seating areas and outdoor sofas too.
Only downside lack of good choice at breakfast unless you are into fry ups but just take a two minute walk to a lovely little Caribbean cafe with fantastic coffee instead ( or even just go to the bakery).

We stayed for four nights at Admirals Inn and it was a delightful experience. Everyone was very friendly and the pool across the water at Boon and the Gunpowder Suites was lovely. Best to be avoided however at busy lunchtimes and early afternoons when the Boon clientele take over. Rooms at the Admirals Inn vary greatly and we were very happy to have a patio room with harbour view - without the Windows it would have been quite claustrophobic.
But all in all an historic boutique hotel in an unparalleled setting.
