Lovely hotel. Kevin and Julie have put a lot of time and effort into making the Albaston a very pleasant place to stay. Rooms are immaculate, and breakfast is excellent. No more than a 10 minute leasurely stroll down hill into town.

All rooms clean, comfortable and ensuite. Excellent service and guest lounge with TV and bar. Hosts attentive and caring. Breakfast excellent with lots of choice and in lovely surroundings. We enjoyed our stay and had everything that we needed. Location to town is good and walkable. Excellent accommodation and hosts - would thoroughly recommend.

A quiet weekend away - the weather wasn't up to much but the hospitality made up for this. The room was wonderful! Comfy bed, great bathroom and the view - was great when the weather cleared. Hoping to go back in the summer for a longer stay!

Found this guesthouse by chance. We were given a warm and friendly welcome by the host and shown to our room, it was well furnished, very clean and had an extremely comfortable bed! The shower was great too. Breakfast was individually prepared, so there was a bit of a wait, but delicious! There was also a good selection of fresh... More

This was a perfect break. A lovely place to stay. We just could not fault this lovely hotel. We stayed in the luxurious Valentino room. Kevin & Julie and staff and Max, are all very welcoming. Oh yes, and Kevin's breakfast is something else. Very worthy winners of channel 4's 4 in a bed. So to sum up, if you... More
