A beautiful historical building that is full of classic paintings and the largest collection of cameras you could wish to see. The service is second to none - helpful, polite and friendly. Free toasted sandwich of the evening, complimentary port and delicious cooked breakfast included. Room was comfortable and spacious. Location right on foreshore. Secure parking. You couldn't want anything... More

We arrived late at night, no booking and we were warmly welcomed by the owner. The paintings are eclectic and very interesting. Very comfortable. We had harbour views. If you like cameras this is for you. Just a wander across the road to the harbour and the Information Centre. Generous breakfast. You feel like you are life long friends with... More

You can read all the reviews here, but nothing prepares you for your first steps into this old converted bank building! The guest house is incredible! While the decor may not be everyone's cup of tea, you have to marvel at the 'stuff' that is packed into every nook and cranny of this place - it will take you ages... More

A beautiful, quaint guest house, kept very clean, with excellent breakfasts cooked by Sarin the manager. Rooms are superbly decorated with gorgeous paintings, and the furniture is very comfortable. Excellent location, right in town, overlooking Princess Royal Harbour. Will definitely come again, and recommend to friends!

A lovely old building with lots of history. Our room was spotless! No dust anywhere! Even though the rooms are decorated with heavy curtains and bedspreads, fake flowers and lots of paintings (the usual dust traps) it was totally dust free! Not musty either. Our room had a bathroom, which was a plus. Comfortable bed, complete with electric blanket, which... More

It was pot luck that we booked this place on the way into Albany, and we really hit the jackpot! The old two storey mansion is clean, tidy, extremely well located and very, very interesting. Sarin, our live-in host, was not only extremely likeable and thoughtful but he cooked the best breakfasts and sent us off with sandwiches and drinks... More

We had the most wonderful experience staying at this beautiful old place. Sarin made our stay so memorable and we would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to feel special on their trip to Albany. Lovely accommodation, beautiful clean rooms, fabulous breakfast. We felt like we had truly escaped to another world.

Thank you Sarin. You made the stay with your warmth. The room was clean and comfortable, A little to much furniture for the size of the room. Right in the middle of town. I would stay here again. Great value for money

I spent three nights at the guest house. The location is excellent and the accommodation is comfortable. The highlight of the guest house is the hospitality offered - Sarin is intent on making the guests feel welcome and well taken care of, without imposing. I'll be happy to return in future.
