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.

A centrally located, well priced guesthouse near to the beach, shopping centers, restaurants, and public transport. Management and staff are very helpful and friendly. Bedding is changed every day. Bedroom is private and quiet, but flood lights outside have to be blocked out by the use of blinds.Bathroom facilities are adequate and work well. Wi Fi is available for free.... More

Very friendly, charming and helpful owner, who was always there for us. We highly recommend her and her guesthouse. We felt very comfortable and would come back anytime! We... More
