We were looking for an economical one night stay for 3 adults. The B&B shared room worked out quite cheap, especially when you consider this included a delicious full hot breakfast. We weren't expecting too much for the price, but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The façade looks like it and the whole street have been recently tastefully... More

Stayed for one night for work - perfect location and central to everything I could need while in town. Simple, clean accommodation. Could be improved with more attention to detail on things like higher quality sheets and towels.

The Foreshore Guest House offers a wonderful location on Stirling Terrace close to the best cafés and shops in Albany, off-street parking, comfortable beds (so important!), a lavish breakfast with thoughtful extras, and attentive service. Above all, however, it offers atmosphere. Quite apart from the period furniture and rooms, the astonishing array of reproduction oil paintings and the no less... More

I would not hesitate to recommend this B & B. My husband and I spent three nights over the long weekend. Nothing is too much trouble for Kathy and the location is perfect. We were even given a a packed lunch for our return journey home. I will return for sure.

We stayed at the Albany Foreshore Guest house for 5 nights in January, and could not have asked for better service. Our room ( Room 1) had it's own en-suite bathroom , the room was spacious, with good solid matching furniture, and lots of drawer space, the beds were comfy with clean linen. We appreciated the many complimentary "treats" we... More

My husband and I stayed at the Albany Foreshore Guest House for one night and wish now that we could have stayed longer. Kathy was so friendly and accommodating. We loved the history and the creativity that has gone into the planning of the guest house. A previous reviewer felt that the paintings and furniture were obtrusive and cluttered. To... More

My partner and I have just spent three nights at this establishment (we didn't bother to stay the last night that was booked). In theory it is run by a couple Kathy and Philip, we only saw Philip on three occassions, very briefly when we arrived, and twice in the car park where a few words were exchanged, it would... More

December was cold in Albany this year but the Foreshore Guest house was cosy and inviting. If you like country and eclectic then this is for you. The guesthouse has a homely ambience, and is awash with a large collection of artworks that pervade every corner and cranny of the place. But what really sets the AFGH apart is the... More

This accommodation had to be one of the worst disappointments I've had in a very long time. Last year three of us booked into this hotel but when we arrived we were taken to two rooms that were very moldy and musty. One of the individuals in our party has asthma and began to have difficulty breathing. This compounded with... More
