A very pleasant hotel located right on the waterfront in Freshwater bay, with beautiful walks and vistas right outside the doorstep. It is a perfect place to spend a day or two doing seriously nothing. The hotel itself is good, nothing exceptional but meets all expectations for an enjoyable stay: big room, comfortable bed, large modern bathroom where everything works.... More

I am just home from a four day break at the Albion. Where to start ? HUGE room with a HUGE bed and gloriously laundered bedding. HUGE bathroom with a power shower to die for and complimentary bathrobes. All good so far ! Food was perfect for me - I am a singleton, so to have my meals prepared and... More

Although I was only a 'Tavern' (the Albion's bar) patron rather than a hotel guest I must say that my visits were less than top-notch. The bar staff are, while pleasant, regularly off doing other things, making trips to reception to get someone to serve you quite regular. The choice of drinks is quite poor, with no local beers available.... More

Everything was 5 star except the dining experience. This was only 3. Breakfast, food wise, was fine. The usual help yourself cereals, juice and yogurts. It was nice to have slices of cold water melon on offer, very refreshing. What we couldn't get on with was the taped music selection. For a hotel that caters to visitors to the island,... More

Have been to the Albion a number of times, always had a nice welcome. The rooms overlooking the sea (20mtrs away), are comfortable and well serviced. The price you see in newspapers is not what you pay that price is for inland/car park view. So phone first. Woul recommend.

called in at the Albion on August Bank Holiday Sunday with a group of seven friends hoping for a beer and a Sunday lunch. They don't do food to non residents apparently! strange for such a large hotel in such a prominent position. The bar staff were also seemingly disinterested in our custom. A disappointment.

Seafront rooms have fantastic views of Freshwater Bay. I booked a junior suite for the second year running. Following the damage done in the February storms, the rooms have been completely refurbished and look terrific. Breakfast is your average English but with other choices. Dinner is home cooking style and offers many choices. All staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately... More

Sure, the paint is peeling, but get yourself inside to the friendly staff, great sized rooms and four piece bathrooms because, quite simple, you can't see the outside when you're inside. We booked this for a weekend away and we looked, we thought uh oh, then we got in, had a fantastic reception, went to our room nd saw a... More
