The room was not ready on arrival. Told they would get it ready while we eat. They didn't. As they were waiting for laundry to dry! Told them not to bother. Daughter and I shared a double instead of the twin beds that I had booked. Very limited choice of channels on TV (no BBC, ITV, channel 4 etc). UHT... More

Stayed 5 nights at this B&B and it was a complete disaster Showers not working for 3 mornings out of the 5. Plugs not working so no tea making facilities. Continental breakfast in your room which we had no problem with if we got what we had paid for. Bed very uncomfortable. We would have left after the second night... More

I can't really believe my hubby and I paid £55 for 1 night in what seems no better than a cheap hostel. The pub itself was quite nicely decorated but this style did not extend to the rooms above. Check-in was easy and the girl on the bar was very friendly. Unfortunately, that's the only positive thing I can say... More

stayed for one night at The Albany which is a pub located two streets off the main drag. Very busy gastro style pub downstairs with rooms to the rear and side that don't resemble the posh touches of the pub interior. That said had a good size double bed with good quality duvet. Shower not the best, shaver light not... More

Visited The Albany with a group of friends had a great steak dinner and marvellous real ales. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth seeking out. Our last visit to this pub was 30 years ago and although much has changed we all enjoyed our return visit.

We were in here two minutes and decides to leave and booked another hotel. Really lumpy beds, the shower didn't work, very dirty decor, the pub downstairs was nice though, shame the hotel part resembles a down and outs hovel

We had a double room (number 1). Check in was fine and easy and done by a polite gentleman. We were given a key for the external door and one for the internal door. The room was a good size with a good bathroom. Drink tray was excellent (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits). They put a little fridge in the... More

Stayed at the Albany last night, was really good, rooms were clean staff were nice and helpful and I was given a selection of cereals and milk with some fresh orange juice! The shower was nice and clean and I would recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere close to town to stay

You get what you pay for-not going to be 5 star for the money! Room acceptable - clean, but could do with a general redecoration! Very close to town - no problem parking on bay opposite! Tea, coffee and hot chocolate sachets provided! Would stay again!
