Our studio was spacious and well equipped, and the free wifi worked well. The owner was personable and friendly and very accommodating when we wanted to change your booking due to the weather conditions. He also helpfully advised us to book as soon as possible for the excellent Green Dolphin restaurant. This is right next door, which was a blessing...

Comfortable clean and easy to find. Close to town really close to excellent restaurant the green dolphin. The heated towel rail was nice touch and the electric frypan was a great idea as there was no hotplate. Was sheltered from the howling winds. Great service.

We found a last minute online deal for one of the larger units and decided to stay at the Admiral Court. We chose wisely! The complex is quite nice and the units are mainly white. It is a bit far from the town center, on the way to the peninsula walk and we used the car to go to the...

Very friendly service ... the owners couldn't do enough to help us. Gorgeous views ... bring your camera! A 30 min walk from town but breathtaking views. Would also recommend the nearby coastal walk that goes past seal colonies. Rooms were clean and most comfortable. Thank-you to the owners!

Stayed here a few times over the last 4 years whilst working in the area. Staff have changed a few times however they have all been friendly and great to talk to. Rooms are a generous size. The location is nice and quiet to get some peace at night.

This hotel is located a few minutes drive from the 'town centre' which was perfect because there wasn't too much traffic passing by. My room was rather large, plenty big enough for the 3 people that it's suppose to cater for! Only a short drive down to the peninsula to view the seal colony at Point Kean.

We were very happy with our stay at Admiral Court. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The view was like a postcard. The location was ideal and only a few minutes walk from the town where there a lots of nice shops a eateries.

We travelled up with friends including kids to head to Seafest. The accommodation was arranged by a friend but it was a great choice. Clean and tidy. Everything you needed in your room + the wifi to keep the teenagers happy. We had a choice of rooms. Some had just tea/coffee making facilities while others had wee kitchenettes to cook...

We had a great stay for 2 nights (in winter). The room was quiet and very clean, with a nice view to the snow covered mountains. The location is very close to the seals and other main attractions. The owners are great people, genuine and down to earth. The rooms may look dated, not modern style, but they have obviously...
