This hotel is just excellent. We have been visiting since 2006 and have missed a couple of years for work reasons. In that time Victoria and Michael have created a super hotel. All of the staff are pleasant and well trained. Special thanks to Victoria and Michael and also to Matt the Waiter and Harry the Chef. The Rooms are... More

The hotel commands a spectacular position overlooking Freshwater Bay. Most of the rooms face the bay and many have balconies. The sound of the sea running up the shingle is guaranteed to help you sleep. The rooms are large and airy, the en suites are vast with separate shower cubicle. It was clean and tidy. The room had a few... More

This review placed on behalf of my brother Mr Stan Powell and his wife who stayed at the Albion last week. Repeat of several past visits. Lovely location. Rooms etc OK but very disappointed with the food side of the business. A marked decline in standards was noted. Sadly, we will not be returning.

A tired and Not very well run hotel . Upon arriving the first thing the front desk asked for was to write down all your credit card details for them to keep , this is something any bank would advise against and leave you very exposed if there was a fraudulent claim . When you book this hotel they ask... More

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
