A good recommendation for our short stay. Renovated well with clean and slick mod cons from subtle bathroom mirror lights to USB power points in plugs. Outstanding views from the back bedroom and enormous bed in room 3. Lovely walk (10mins) along sea to town down a newly built boardwalk and concrete promenade as part of a sea defence and... More

Thank you for your review and kind words, I'm glad that all the renovations were to your liking. We're really sorry to read that you felt the breakfast was a little lacking, we would have been more than happy to address/rectify this if you'd let us know. We're always happy to cook more, if you need extra to set you... More

This small, completely re-furbished 5 bedroom B&B is an ideal base for a stay in Lyme Regis. Nikki and Toby seem to have thought of pretty much everything to make their new venture comfortable and welcoming. Decor and furnishings are excellent, breakfast superb. We have already booked for a return visit later in the year.

Recently visited Lyme Regis for their Jazz and Blues Festival having booked the Albany Guesthouse from the Internet. We received a warm welcome from the owner who gave us very helpful information on the town. The guest house has recently undergone refurbishment to a very high standard and together with a spacious room, good breakfast and ample parking it was... More

missed out on a couple of other rooms in town,so having seen this online, driving past, and seeing the "vacancy" sign, we decided to enquire,what a stroke of luck. The owner Toby, showed us the family room at the rear of the property,very private, spotlessly clean and fresh, bright and airy,absolutely perfect. We only stayed one night (£85, and worth... More

We stayed in the family room, the place is clean, very warm welcome from the owner, close to amenities, lovely back garden with sea view. My son really enjoyed his stay in his bunk bed. Worth the money. Very recommendable !

My husband and I enjoyed a very pleasant stay at The Albany. The rooms were spotless and fresh and nothing was too much trouble. We were left alone to do as we wished. Cooked breakfast was lovely too.! Location fantastic and room for parking which was a great advantage. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Give it a try!!... More

I stayed for just one night on a work trip, but I hugely enjoyed my short stay at the Albany. It's run by Toby and his wife who live in the back of the immaculate house. They were both so warm and friendly, which was great as I was travelling solo! The room was spotless, and the bed incredibly comfortable.... More

Great little guest house within walking distance of the town and beaches. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. There was an excellent choice at breakfast, from fresh fruit, to the full English. Friendly and welcoming hosts too. I would certainly recommend and would definitely return.

I recently stay here for late May15 bank holiday. The Albany Guest House located within walking distance of Lyme Regis town center and the coast walk. The host and hostess, Toby and Nicola, are a lovely couple and very helpful. I love the homemade hand wash and shampoo. You can walk from Albany down to the coastal wall and towards... More

I stay at many hotels up and down the country as a requirement of my job. Having stayed at the Albany for 4 days last week on holiday with my partner, we can honestly say that this hotel was second to none. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful, the service was first class, the breakfast was fresh, hot and... More
