Admiral Stirling Inn is named after Western Australia's founding governor, who became a full Admiral late in life, Admiral Stirling Inn has to be a 'she', as the air and vitality of a master-built ship exudes from every imperial inch of her jarrah decks, weatherboards and lasting craftsmanship.
Admiral Stirling Inn is an impressive presence on Ned Higgins Lane, yet a peaceful one, having been carefully built amongst the existing graceful old trees, complete with falling gumnuts. Set back from the main street and close to the River's nature trails, but with the advantage of having all the attractions of town within reach of your sea-legs, the accommodations here offer convenience as well as comfort. The comforts are modern but there is a warmth brought from another time.
The promise of Admiral Stirling Inn is difference, with style. The philosophy is that families and small groups, as well as individuals and couples, should have affordable opportunity to have classy accommodation quarters in town - whether fully self-contained or rooms with private facilities and access to superb all-guest facilities.
Admiral Stirling Inn accommodations also hold Western Australian history in back-benches from the WA Legislative Council gracing several quarters, from which you might ponder your holiday agenda. The seafaring theme is tastefully carried throughout and, with such extensive use of local hardwood timbers, many a wishful naval-gazer (sic) will take pleasure in exploring the unique and adventurous spirit of the place.
Welcome aboard, and to the perfect helm to steer your Margaret River course!
All of Admiral Stirling Inn's comfortable accommodation quarters are equipped with tea- and coffee-making facilities, reverse-cycle air-conditioning, bar refrigerator, TV-DVD and have access to wireless internet facilities. Several have other features too, such as kitchenette and private decked courtyard.
In addition, all Admiral Stirling Inn's guests are invited to enjoy the 'Engine Room' of her kitchen and breakfast bar, and the covered barbecue area, where all that is needed for a traditional Australian experience are your provisions and your holiday spirit.

The reception is round the corner and manages three accomodation zones, but on arrival signage to the reception was easy to spot. Plenty of parking was available though some of the lanes are extremely tight. My friend and I stayed in one of the upstairs cabins, two single bedrooms separated by a shared bathroom. One bedroom had the heated blanket the other had the air conditioning. I guess one was the summer and the other the winter room? The bathroom was nice and roomy, though the shower did leak in the corner. Pressure and temperature was plentiful. Sleeping wasn't really an issue, though the nights were mild even for May. Noise travels pretty well, so my companion did miss out on a nights sleep from one of the other units. Location is excellent, all of Margaret River within walking distance. Great jump off point for visiting the region. Worth staying if on offer.
Charming, comfortable hotel with a great variety of room types. I was traveling with a friend and we were able to book "Cabins 1 and 2" with 2 private bedrooms and 1 Jack and Jill bathroom. So nice to have my own bedroom! The service was friendly and the little patio area outside the "Engine Room" was a great place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee. Great find.
5 stars for service. I came in to my room with my pregnant wife and there was a smell in the room - to be fair it was spring break... But 5 stars anyways for the accommodating service - they upgraded us significantly and we had an absolutely amazing stay! Beautiful premises, simple and not extravagant. There's some common areas with a BBQ, a lounge and a variety of accommodation. Thank you for the service and care shown. Worth coming back for.
We had a great night at the Admiral Stirling! We were at the back in The Stern. Quirky (I like that), but totally had everything we needed. The bed was very comfy. Check in at Adamsons on the righr hand corner of Higgins & Hwy. Once you have your key the best entry to rooms is via Town View Tce above rather than the Lane below. The Italian restaurant in front (La Scarpetta) on the highway was AWESOME. No complaints here. I'd book again, no hesitation.
Very picturesque and brilliant for the activities locally . Would stay there again.
