This Colonial hotel delivers history and charm, and it’s in easy distance of the island’s capital.
Once the home of a seafaring aristocrat, this 18th-century mansion is now a stately hotel filled with paintings, maps and antiques.
The hotel sits on a hill above a rocky strip of shore. It’s halfway between Es Castell, a pretty town steeped in military history, and Mahon, Menorca’s capital. Both are a 15-minute walk away.

Other reviews say it all - staff amazing and service is second to none. We had a terrace room, spacious and squeaky clean. Breakfast fine and lunch in the bar OK. We ate out most of time as we like exploring. Easy walking distance to Es Castell and Mahon plus bus service. Resident cats make it feel like home....😺 Definitely not child friendly (good!), and loads of repeat visitors - I can totally see why. Excellent value for money. More
Fantastic Welcome & Hotel
I have just returned from a 4 night break at the Hotel del Almirante and i can't praise the hotel and it's staff enough. The hotel is full of character and offers a very personal service which is so often lacking in mainstream hotels. A good location between Mahon and Es Castell, both within walking distance and with views over the harbour estuary. Plenty of areas to relax in around the pool and garden. A 3 course dinner can be booked in the restaurant or a range of meals can be taken in the bar. The staff are a real asset to the hotel and all work extremely hard to enhance your holiday experience,More
Excellent place to stay.
Very good service from reception staff, hotel was full of character. Definitely a place I would stay again if I was in the area again. Pool and hotel very clean, oddly no TV in the room but wifi available. Nice area outside to enjoy a tea/coffee or a cold drink.More
Fantastic, friendly hotel
This is a very unique hotel, steeped in history. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The cleaners and bar staff work so hard, always with a friendly smile and greeting. So many holiday makers return time after time, which demonstrates how friendly and relaxing it is to stay here. This was our third visit and we were welcomed with a hug and kiss from the Director, not many hotels give such a personal touch! The view from Room 8 of the harbour is amazing. There are many places you can relax out in the sun, the pool is clean. The bar meals and breakfast are of a good standard. The drinks are value for money, as they are not small measures! We are looking forward to our next holiday here.More
A daunting weekend at Collingwood Hotel
This past August 2017, my husband and I went to the Balearic Island for our honeymoon. From the start I felt a weird vibe on this hotel. Walking up to the second floor, the old paintings on the living room gave me the chills. After we arrived to our room # 8 the amazing port view gave me a cozy welcoming. As a joke my husband asked me if I thought this hotel is haunted, which I say yes it is. That friday night it was impossible for me to fall asleep, going to bed around 4:30 AM. I felt I was being watched that I was not alone. Next day I told my skeptical husband that someone or something was sharing the space. That Saturday we walked to the town of Mahon, enjoyed a romantic dinner at sunset and when we came back to our room the sensation of being watched resurfaced. This time I heard noises around the house, specially coming from the room next door to us room # 7. The steps and noise I started to hear it happened around 2 AM, it is an old house I said, the lamp next to me started going on and off. Around 3 AM i felt something or someone pull my sheets. At that point I started chatting with my mother over whatsapp app in the US telling her I was afraid to even turn off the lights. Her reply comforted me and I started to pray. I went to bed around the same time 4:30 AM. Next morning we woke up really early to catch our flight to Barcelona. After checking in our room in Barrio Gotico, I collapsed in bed exhausted; when I googled Hotel del Almirante I was in disbelief when I read different articles regarding the Ghost of Port Mahon. Thanks god I did not see that info earlier when I was awake for two long nights. I don't know if the ghost of Lord Collingwood still in the house, but I truly believe there is an entity from beyond living in that house.More
