We spent a few nights in this hotel in January. I would always go back. The hotel is situated in a historic building and the owner has – while not with the original furniture – decorated the hotel in a very fitting way. The atmosphere is laid back posh B&B. There are a lot of common rooms in which guests... More

This was my first visit to Albany. I chose this B&B on the basis of other reviews which are normally dependable. It's clean and pleasant enough with good views but way over-priced for what you get in the bedroom or for the cooked breakfast. And I didn't like having the dog running all over the place.

My first trip to Albany was a very quick one, and as not sure when I might get back again, could not pass up the opportunity to stay at The Rocks. The whole experience was totally outstanding. What a privilege to stay in a home with so much history. Absolutely everything about The Rocks was top notch - the grounds,... More

This was our first trip to Albany in many years and staying here made it all the more special. The property is historic, beautiful, well maintained and the host Noelene is friendly, helpful and we think perfect for this sort of job (the dogs are too). I would recommend The Rocks as a first class stop and stay to anyone... More

We have just recently stayed at the Rocks Albany for three nights and it is amazing. Noelene, our host, makes you feel so welcome and the home has been magnificently restored. Sweeping view across the Albany harbour, and the quiet seclusion of the home make this an ideal hideaway if you just want to sit and take in the vista.... More

This was our first trip to Albany on the WA South Coast so we decided to increase the accommodation budget and stay somewhere nice. Having found The Rocks through Google then checking it out in tripadvisor we were expecting something special and Noelene and her staff (including Eskimo and Mac) didn't disappoint. We took their Premium room with it's own... More

My wife and I returned to the Rocks to celebrated our First Wedding Anniversary and we were not disappointed. The house is stunning, the breakfasts are amazing and Noelene, Mac and Esky are the perfect hosts.

This is a beautifully restored and maintained b&b with a great outlook over Albany harbour. However, charging $455 a night in such a regional location is not justified. My lovely room also had unfinished electrical installation and wiring evident. The room should have been reduced in price as a result. When the room is completed it would probably be good... More

High Tea at The Rocks for Grannys 90th birthday. Wow Wow Wow. Noelene (the manager) was an exceptional hostess and the venue magnificent. Nothing was too much trouble , we kept asking for things but couldn't find the limit of her patience. Cool as a cucumber. Gran loved it.
