A warm welcome by the hosts and tea in the lounge on arrival. Reception and lounge a little dark and in need of light but the warmth of the hosts made up for it! Bags taken to our room on the first floor and we were impressed with the cleanliness and style of our bedroom. Although rooms are small they... More

My partner and I stayed three nights at Albaston in mid Setember 2013 and I was very impressed. I understand that the owners, Dean and Richard, have only very recently taken over Albaston and it is completely unrecognisable from the time I once stayed there a few years ago. Under Dean and Richard, the standards are now very high although... More

Having followed the owners Deane and Richard from their previous premises in Torquay, I knew their new venture the Albalston hotel and restaurant was fulfilling a dream - to provide even greater quality accommodation and start a restaurant in house. Five star luxury was what they were aiming for and five star luxury is what you get. Beautifully renovated and... More

We were privileged to be the first guests of Dean and Richard, former owners of the Cranborne, at the Albaston House Hotel. They’ve done a fantastic job of refurbishing the Albaston. Those who know Dean and Richard from previous will not be disappointed with the luxury accommodation this hotel now offers. The Pompadour room we stayed in was excellent. Light,... More

We has a very enjoyable stay at Albaston. The owners were very friendly and helpful and very knowledgable about the local area. The location was ideal, much quieter than other hotels we have stayed at in Torquay. There was plenty of parking and breakfast wa delicious.
