I was made to feel very welcome by the hosts who have created a really great place. So clean and tidy that looked like it had recently been refurbished. Excellent service from beginning to end. I would certainly stay here again and I would recommend it to others as well!

Excellence first: this was a family Half-Term visit to Lyme Regis. We drove from home about 3 hours before hitting car queues at Stonehenge. Simply meant we arrived at The Albany late, in the dark and rain. No problem because Toby was in the private car park to greet us and give us our keys. We booked Family Room 6... More

This has to be one of the best B&B's I've stayed in! Having recently been redecorated our room (room 2) was well decorated, clean and with a lovely big bay window made all the better with a sea view. The chocolates in our room were a tasty little touch too! Location wise it couldn't be more perfect. With plenty of... More

Toby and Nikki gave us a lovely and friendly welcome to their B&B. The room looked recently refurbished and the whole place was immaculate and very comfortable. The extra touch of the home-made toiletries was lovely. Would happily return!

We ended up here down to lack of options on a last minute booking back in July and landed right on our feet. The place is exceptionally clean and comfortable, about a 4 minute walk to the seafront yet out of the bustle and very welcoming. We liked it (and obviously the town) so much we booked up for a...

Just spent a great weekend at the Albany, Toby and Nikki were charming hosts, the house was well situated in Lyme Regis and recently refurbished to a high standard. A good locally sourced breakfast was provided.

Just returned from a short break in Lyme Regis. This is our second visit to the Albany guest house. It was even more impressive than our first stay as all the rooms had been refitted and we were lucky enough to have "a room with a view" brilliant.

I had a most enjoyable stay at Albany, and my room and bed was one of the prettiest of any during my 22 days of walking the SW Coast Path from Lizard Point to South Haven Point.
