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.

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 :)

We spent a night here on our way through Geelong. Friendly staff and very reasonably priced. The room was fairly spacious, very clean and comfortable. Loved the big shower as often hotels have awful showers with no water pressure, not the case here!!! Definitely recommend!

We, at The Admiralty, are very glad you had a comfortable stay. The girls who work with us to maintain and clean the rooms pride themselves on their work and I feel very lucky to work alongside them. Hope the rest of your holiday was good.

difficult to assess this motel. In throes of being renovated. Disappointed in basics like uncovered staircase to upper level - it was raining!!! Some parts of the motel complex looked pretty basic. The room we had was very well appointed - presumably one of the renovated ones - nice clean bathroom, comfortable queen bed, good pillows. No complaints indeed very...

To tell you the truth we have done a lot of renovations at The Admiralty and it has never crossed our minds to build a shelter over the stairway. (One to keep in mind) We have completed about 80% of our room renovations (and that is continuing) and on Tuesday all our new windows are completely finished.

Sorry to hear you found us a bit too "basic"! I guess all I can say is we are a 3.5 star Motel and we try to offer a clean and comfortable stay at a reasonable price. Unfortunately we did not hit the mark with you. I will say the Fire Brigade over the road are very good to us....
