The view from our first floor was the highlight. The view is really it tho'. Very dated chipped tiles and strange decor... all in need of sorting. It was an ok two nights but I would not return. Look at your options. If a view is a must then this is a worthy choice. Remember you have the road in...

From the moment we checked in to Admiralty Lodge Motel, we felt at ease. Lovely reception staff (and very cute, welcoming dog) were helpful and friendly. The room was large with the most spectacular view of the beach. We witnessed a beautiful sunrise and sunset right from our room. The pool was great, perfect temperature. Would definitely stay here again.

The room is big, and is equipped with AC, kitchen, DVD player and heated bed. The window is large, you can enjoy the beach view outside. Although it doesnt offer dinner, it's very convenient to call for pizza, Indian food etc with the menu provided in each room. Overall, the room is comfy and the staff is friendly.

This is a pleasant and well situated motel with attentive staff. We arrived late on probably, the coldest night of the winter,to find the aircon unit had thoughtfully been turned on prior to our arrival to heat the unit up for us. Unfortunately preparing for bed we found one side of the electric blanket would not heat up. A great...

Thank you for your comments and I apologize again for the hot water issue. During my tenure it has happened twice and both nights were the coldest and most of the guests wanted to have a nice bath. Hopefully on your next visit, it will not happen. I am glad you enjoyed your overall stay along with breakfast. In rooms...

Hotel is located just out of Town on Buffalo Beach Road which was easy to find particularly as there is a well lit blue sign outside. Hotel is literally a stone throws away from the beach and our room had a balcony area with great views. Wi-fi is complimentary and works well and the hotel had a guest laundry which...

We stayed for one night and enjoyed our stay. It’s a smallish motel (not a five-star hotel), but what I really liked is that the owners seem to take a tremendous pride in making this place as good as they can. It’s almost like a bed-and-breakfast experience in a motel. (It really feels like a bed-and-breakfast experience when they bring...

The Admiralty Lodge is excellent. Originally planned to stay 4 days, but stayed 6 days. The room (downstairs) was great and very good value, the staff were very welcoming and always happy to assist and we could not fault the Admiralty Lodge at all. Only a couple of minutes drive from the town so easy to go in for a...
