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!

Simple, unfussy place to stay. The pub/restaurant was nice; the room we had (top floor) was spacious and clean enough. The furnishing and decorations are lackluster (the professional images look a bit nicer), but it was a good enough place for us to stay for a night. Location - easy walk to town.

I stayed in room no 1 of this grubby guest house last night after attending a colleagues leaving party in the town, I needed a place to stay in Guildford & was unlucky to book into the Albany. The moment I saw the hall & stair stained carpet I knew I had made a mistake, the room was no better... More

Amazing value! Super food and excellent staff. First class food - such good quality and the best we found in Guildford in our three night stay. Might suggest new mattresses for the future but to be honest my sister and I plus our partners had a fab time. Nothing too much trouble.

I stayed here with my best friend on a Thursday evening- stayed at a room on the top floor. Perfect for a one night stay, had a nice mini fridge with orange juice and milk and some cereal boxes for breakfast in the morning. Bathroom was nice and modern and it was in a great location right at the top... More

Went for a meal before we went to G Live - staff were great and helpful. The food was very good too. However the noise levels on that Friday were terribly high and loud! We moved ourselves to another table to enable us to hear each other talk! I would return as menu had some nice choices and good value.

Great value for money, very good location, clean and beautiful rooms and very helpful assictance. Initially I didn't know what to expect but I 100%recommend it and I would go again. Plus, the pub underneath the B&B is lovely and the food is good as well (a bit expensive though).
