          Thankyou all for the lovely comments following your stay at Admiral Court. We do take a lot of pride in the cleanliness of the rooms. We are lucky to have wonderful mountain and sea views and if requested we try our best to accommodate these requests due to availability . We have in the past had a few problems with connecting to Wifi on occasions but have recently upgraded to a faster more effective Wifi system, and this being free to our guests. We like to inform our guests with knowledge of our activities available, wonderful walks and fantastic Cafés/Bars and Resturants with plenty of fresh Local seafood. We do provide pickup and drop off to bus depot and train station should you not have your own transport. Look forward to once again a really busy summer. thankyou again to all of our past guests for your stay and comments and safe travelling to all our new guests to arrive. Regards Karla (Manager)
