When I'm in Geelong for business or getting away for a weekend, Admirality Inn is the place I stay. With a convenient location and an excellent restaurant, Empire Grill at your doorstep, if that doesn't make you like this place then the staff that work here at the restaurant and hotel will add to a very positive experience!

We are very pleased you had an enjoyable couple of days staying at The Admiralty. We are a very short drive to The Bellarine Peninsula so it is a great option to stay with us and explore all that is on offer. Glad you enjoyed the pool, very handy on those very hot days! Thanks again for choosing to stay...

Water supply was poor in the morning at the time of check out, also even though the sign for non smoking was in place but people was smoking in the shared balcony of the motel no drinking water was supplied in the room. Will never book this in future.

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay and I apologise for the water issue you experienced. Peter our trusty plumber was straight on the job and the issue has been rectified. We do supply bottled water in the rooms.

Stayed here for one night (a weeknight) for a client visit in Geelong. Firstly, I would NOT recommend walking here from Geelong train station. Long walk (~20 mins) and a bit of an uphill trek. Not comfortable with a small suitcase and workshop materials. Check-in was smooth after booking online, this is a small family-run motel. The gentleman at the...

Thanks Kiara for your review. I agree, the Geelong Station is a fair walk, especially with luggage. We are much closer to South Geelong Station. You stay on the train for one more stop and then to walk to The Admiralty is less than 10 minutes. A comfortable night's stay is what we endeavour to provide!

The motel is located close to the city centre main shopping precinct. An old basic motel that is currently being refurbished. My room was upstairs at the end of the balcony, a bit tricky if you have to carry the bags upstairs. The rooms are small and very basic. Being refurbished it was very clean. With no table and chairs...

Two couples stayed for 2 nights in July 2016. Room comfortable and recently updated from our previous stay. Nice cosy bar adjacent to the restaurant was well appreciated by the wining couple and the losing couple (us). Staff made us very welcome.

We love the football season at The Admiralty. We are so lucky to be situated just around the corner from Kardinia Park. When the Cats have a home game there is just a great feeling of anticipation from all our guests. Always good post game to hear everybody's opinion on the game! The Empire Grill provides a great spot to...

Stayed a night at short notice. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the queen bed very comfortable. For a motel the shower was surprisingly good. Bathroom exhaust game worked very well so mirror didn't fog up. Walking distance to the town centre which was great Recommended !

Thanks David. I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We receive a lot of favourable comments about the shower and the cleanliness of our rooms. We are only a short walk down to Westfield shops and the Waterfront so people are able to leave their car and not have to battle the traffic - much more relaxing.

Stayed here again while in town for work. Room was nice and modern and very comfortable. An easy walk into town for shopping and also lots of food options nearby. Only a short walk down to Eastern Beach as well.

Thank you for your review. Again, our location in Geelong is very good. We have so many good eateries within walking distance - The Empire Grill (right here at The Admiralty), El Toro, The Elephant and Castle, Jack and Jill and of course Little Creatures which is a great destination up our end of town.

We were down from Melbourne staying one night over the weekend. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the shower was great. The cooked breakfast was delicious and great value! But most of all the service was fantastic. Everyone was very friendly. Would definitely stay again :)
