This B&B proved a very handy location for a two night weekend stay. You're located right in the city, so no shortage of restaurants & cafes to eat at. Easy access to wherever you want to head whilst you're here. There's private off road parking around the back, although being right in the town at the weekend there was some... More

We stayed here for two nights this week. It is an interesting spot, bags of character and very good value. We stayed in a room at the front with stunning views, which had its own (adjacent) bathroom but some of the other rooms share so be careful which room you chose (check their website for details). The old building has... More

Stayed 2 nights and was very happy with the place. Old and a bit crazy (not me, the guest house) but quite unique. The owner has more than 2000 cameras dotted around the building in glass cases and there are some (at least 50) unfranked masterpiece replicas on the walls. Paintings apparently done by a Chines guy and the detail... More

My husband and I spent two nights here in March 2015. The personal though discreet service offered by the manager Sarin, the cooked breakfast which is included in the price, the central location, and the beautiful historic building (it used to be a bank) all add up to a very pleasant stay, and mean we could unreservedly recommend the Albany...

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
