I have now stayed here on a few occasions whilst working in the area and once with my partner on our way up to Scotland. The rooms are superb and the staff are excellent but the absolute winner for me is the breakfast!!! When working in the North West again I will Always stay here!!! See you soon

We can not recommend this guest house enough. Fantastic hosts, great decor, spotlessly clean, fabulous extras ( brownies, flasks of fresh milk, dressing gown ect.), and a absolutely delicious English breakfast along side cereals, croissants, muffins ect. Nothing will disappoint you with this hidden treasure.

Really lovely décor, with lovely touches in the room, gorgeous brownies, lovely china cups and glasses and very comfortable, the bathroom was a private bathroom but across the hall, with lovely toiletries. The towels unfortunately smelt of cooking smells and not fresh and clean. There was no long mirror which would have been nice. There was free Wi-Fi and the... More

Absolutely love this place. Have stayed here twice. The welcome is warm and unobtrusive. The rooms are immaculate and well equipped with some lovely touches - fruit bowl, chocolate brownie, bath robe, decent toiletries free wifi. The breakfasts are varied and delicious. Central location but very quiet at night. Astonishingly good value . Lovely owners. Keep doing what you're doing... More

Stayed here just for one night. Exceptionally clean and tidy, lovely big room with very comfy bed. Lovely to get fruit and a couple of chocs in my room. Amazing breakfast spread! Friendly hosts. Definitely a good place to stay. Would go back and recommend to others.

Second visit to Albany House this year and had a lovely two nights stay. This really is a first rate B&B - spotlessly tidy, beautifully maintained and decorated, the comfiest beds ever and Sue and her family go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Also the extra little touches like chocolate brownies and biscuits make such a difference.... More

This B&B was a bit more up-market, and not so friendly as others I have stayed in, but very efficient and professional. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely, which included fresh fruit. The extra we paid per person was probably worth it.
