The breakfast was not standard, balcony was missed, parking situation not really safe, Swimmingpool in the shade. The house and rooms are really nice and clean, service was not trained very well. It seemed that nobody cares if you are feeling alright.I will choose another B&B next time

First of all, unfriendly lady at the front desk or perhaps she's the ,manager or owner,.had an unpleasant stay.there was so much noise the evening, something that was blown against something by the wind , took a very long time before someone came to check it out.location superb, but service at this place is poor.

Stayed 5 days at the Albatross and was very happy to be there. The staff were friendly, the facilities were good and the breakfast very satisfying. The TV was a bit unreliable, but would heartily recommend it to others.

Beautiful guesthouse and helpful staff as well as a great location. I would not recommend it for Business travelers though, as the main street was noisy during the night and breakfast was served from 8am onwards.
