But first, have you seen our new look? The Admiral Inn has a whole new website – very cool, no? Yes! The look is ultra-sleek, modern and easy on the eyes and brain. You can reserve a room right on the main page, it’s in our system and we’re sending you a confirmation email the same day! You can take a virtual tour of the hotel, check our amenities and see what else we have on offer for groups, corporate events and meetings and much, much more. Plus, we’re still child friendly, and we still enjoy welcoming our four-legged friends. We’re still located adjacent to Victoria’s inner harbour and we’re still the cleanest, sparkliest hotel west of the Pecos. Or is that east? Either way, we’re it! So join us while you’re in town to sample some of the exciting cultural and outdoor events that are coming up this week.
In conjunction with the Victoria Guitar Festival this weekend, Pepe Romero is appearing at the Alix Goolden Hall for one night only. One of the best and most repected classical guitarists around, Pepe has been playing and amazing audiences since he was 7 years old. Even if classical guitar isn’t your all time favourite, you have to come and listen to excellence in action.
From Friday April 9 to Friday April 23, the AGGV will be showing the works of prolific local artist James Gordaneer. For almost 60 years, Gordaneer’s work has reflected and engaged with most of the major movements across North America. Drop by the gallery to see some of the best artwork across 60 years of working.
If magic is your thing, then be sure to stroll by the causeway in the Inner Harbour, just across from the Empress and be amazed by Jordano the Great. His magic is beginning to be in demand around town, so be sure to see him before he becomes world famous!
And if outdoor activity is your passion, then be sure to check out the Vancouver Island Outdoor Trade Show at the Pearkes Arena this weekend. Not only for equipment buyers and sellers, there will be seminars, workshops and lessons on all kinds of outdoor activity, incluing kayaking, fly tying, scuba diving and mountain biking. Be sure to arrive early and stay late!
And remember, that whether your interest is outdoor activity, indoor culture, or both, we at the Admiral can set up an itinerary for you that will satisfy all your sightseeing and touring interests. Just ask at the front desk and we’ll be happy to suggest places to visit, things to do and make the bookings for you. Five star service is cheap at the Admiral!
