Not to mention every thought is given to guest comfort offering... More

We recently travelled to WA for a short break and booked this place before getting there, what a surprise. Really friendly staff, very welcoming. Room was clean and comfy. Bathroom could do with a make over but very functional. Location was excellent, walking distance to restaurants and shops. Would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Albany is a lovely, rugged and historic town with many places of interest, though for us North Queenslanders a tad chilly. Our hostess warmed us with complimentary warm drinks and delicious port. We then snuggled up in our quaint bedroom until we awoke to a lovely home cooked breakfast with all the trimmings and plunger coffee.To top it off, we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at AFGH. The rooms were comfortable, great selection of complimentary DVD's, delicious breakfast and friendly service. Word of advice if you are staying on a weekend, request the rooms at the back of the building.

Very interesting building, the highest ceiling we have ever slept under! Filled with artworks and antique cameras. Staff very friendly and welcoming, allowed us to keep our car parked here while we walked the Bibbullman track for a few days. Just what we were looking for.

If you like your accommodation with a bit of character, this place is for you! The floor to (incredibly high) ceiling paintings make for interesting decor. Our host was fantastic and provided an excellent breakfast and a toasted sandwich in the evening - we didn't even need to go out for dinner!

We were very thankful to come across the AFGH overlooking the harbour. The rooms were cosy, clean and had all the necessary amenities. The service was fantastic. Sarin makes a great breakfast and couldn't do enough for us - a great manager and host. The eclectic décor was unique but grew on us over the couple of days we were... More
