Admiral’s Inn - Gunpowder Suites & Boom Pool Restaurant

The Admiral's Inn retains a historic charm within Nelsons Dockyard with the Gunpowder Suites just across the water, adding to an experience of contemporary luxury which includes an infinity-edged pool (with spectacular view overlooking Dockyard) and a popular second poolside restaurant ‘Boom’ – with daybeds, hammocks and a spa. 

The rooms at the main hotel, housed in three buildings, dating from Nelson’s era, range from standards to deluxe Loft Suites and all feature air-conditioning, WIFI and a free boat ride to Galleon Beach or to the popular Boom pool restaurant. 

Highly recommended for a crew get-away or for visiting family to stay, this resort has received fantastic reviews from crews for all its services – including the cuisine served at the main Pillars restaurant. With its stunning water-front setting, it is one of the best locations for a special dinner, a relaxing lunch or a large crew party; and is only a five-minute walk from the Falmouth and Dockyard Marinas – although it feels like a world away!

Gunpowder Suites

The deluxe Gunpowder Suites (with stunning views of the harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard) are deservedly in high demand.
Set on two acres of manicured waterfront gardens, the suites feature a large infinity pool – with spacious surrounding terrace to lounge on daybeds, enjoy a quick dip, take a massage at the spa or enjoy some tasty meals and cocktails at their ‘Boom’ poolside restaurant.
The suites feature king-size beds, tea/coffee making facilities, iPod docking stations, minibars, WiFi and air-conditioning. A fantastic place to stay - book early!

Boom Pool Restaurant

Boom, with its poolside seating and spectacular infinity-edged pool overlooking Nelson’s Dockyard is a firm favourite for yachties, and is well worth a visit.

As an extension of The Admiral’s Inn, Boom is just a 5 minute walk from the marinas in Falmouth and Nelson’s Dockyard, yet it feels like a world away! 

Crew members can pop over for a tasty relaxing lunch or spend the day lounging on daybeds, enjoy a massage at the spa, dip in the pool, sample delectable dishes and sip their favourite cocktails or wine. Boom is also available for private parties and we heard through the grapevine about a few well celebrated events there. We received glowing reviews of the fresh, locally sourced Mediterranean inspired food and infamous cocktails. Open every day from 1200 to 1800 hrs and some nights for dinner – reservations are recommended. For weekend getaways, crews should definitely check out the popular Gunpowder Suites, built around the remodeled 18th Century gunpowder magazine next to Boom. Featuring king-size four-poster beds and modern amenities, these suites offer a serene retreat.

So close – yet a world away!
