4 of us have just returned from a 1 night stay at the Admiral and I have to say we would not go back.
On arrival the owner "greeted us" with a miserable face produced 2 keys and told us which rooms we had been given. The property seemed very old and there were air fresheners plugged in everywhere, in fact there were so many it made me cough. The rooms were basic and smelled "fusty", although the beds were clean. The bathroom was also clean, but there was something about the whole place that made you feel as though it all needed a good scrub. I have never seen so many ornaments and knick knacks as there were in the dining room and most of them needed a good clean. I have to say the breakfast was good, but again it was served by the owner who seemed about as happy as "someone who had lost a pound and found a penny"
When we booked over the phone we gave credit card details and thought that we would receive the bill after Christmas, but the owner had different ideas. As we were about to leave she asked if we were going to pay ? I told her that she had our credit card details, but apparently her machine had broken and she wanted cash ! We said we didn't have the cash on us, that was the reason we had used card. She then had the cheek to actually tell us where the nearest bank was. I have to say I was not impressed, I think at least we should have been told when we arrived so that we could have made alternative arrangements. So we had to go into town to the cash point in order to pay our bill. I think this place is very overpriced and I will definitely not be going back.
