Admiral Stirling Inn
Located in leafy surrounds on a lane in Margaret River, Admiral Stirling Inn has the air of naturalness, yet is within several minutes’ walk of all the town has to offer.
Named after a man with a sense of adventure and Western Australia’s founding governor, Admiral Stirling Inn executes its nautical theme tastefully, with true sensibility and respect in extensive use of the extraordinary hardwood timbers for which Western Australia’s south-western forests have been renowned. Indeed, it is not exaggeration to say the place has been crafted with love, the proprietor and craftsman being one and the same.
Once discovered, Admiral Stirling Inn has proven to be a place to return to in Margaret River by those who like their accommodation enhanced by individual personality and warmth of character, as well as convenience of location. ‘Exceptional’, ‘wonderfully different’, ‘a real discovery’, and other superlatives continue frequently to be exclaimed of Admiral Stirling Inn, by guests in her flagship self-contained accommodations and by others who have enjoyed her extraordinary all-guest facilities.
An undercover barbecue area, with seating and relaxing trickling water of small pond, welcomes all guests to use it. This leads from the ‘Engine Room’, a large, equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and lounge, highlighting the beauty of South-West timbers, again for all guests to enjoy. Admiral Stirling Inn also has a small coin-operated laundry for guests’ afternoon use. Access to wi-fi, and to the DVD library at reception, is complimentary to Admiral Stirling Inn guests.
Admiral Stirling Inn has options for fully self-contained accommodation quarters for two to eight people, or accommodations with private facilities of differing configurations, for individuals to small families.
All Admiral Stirling Inn accommodations have reverse-cycle air-conditioning; one or several TV-DVD; and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Amongst the substantial range of accommodations Admiral Stirling Inn offers are her flagship quarters, unique in quality of design and materials:
