We have stayed at this hotel many times and had an enjoyable stay, but this last time was very disappointing. When we arrived the weather was not brilliant but the reception was cheerful and welcoming until we reached our room which was a little bit uninviting and it had a damp smell. We noticed straight away that there was no... More

We decided to take a short break on the Isle of Wight to g see my cousin, an artist, in Freshwater and take along my 84 year old mum. We wanted a reasonably priced hotel by the see and found The Albion Hotel in Freshwater on Booking.com. According to the booking website, there were no sea view rooms available but... More

All bedrooms have a balcony and a sea view and mine, room 217, was large enough to run round! The bathroom was equally as large with a separate shower which was excellent. The public areas were extremely comfortable and quite sparsely populated when I visited - a very restful weekend. Sadly, the English breakfast would have benefited by having the... More

1 night stay, without breakfast or evening meal was over priced. Hotel clean, quiet and convenient. Very under staffed. Great views over the bay, but rooms were stuffy- despite having balcony to open doors on to. Hotel looks like it is starting to get run down from the outside, inside is adequate, but starting to look a bit old. Rooms... More

Stayed at this hotel on and of over the last 18 years and the location never disappoints. Room overlooking the bay is so wonderful. Our room was clean and comfortable and reception was very helpful in asking housekeeping to replace the winter duvet with a sheet and blankets. Restaurant staff very pleasant but some could do with more training. Biggest... More

This hotel has a good room (number 209) and that's about it. The main drawback about this hotel is it's run on a shoestring and as a result the food is diabolical !!!! The evening meal is a set meal with a choice of 4 different dishes, all very cheap basic stuff, our last nights main choice was macaroni cheese... More

We are a group of 70 something's who mostly met in Primary school and youth club and enjoy an annual long weekend together. The deal included the cost of the red Funnell ferry from Southampton ( but we actually would have preferred to go from Lymington), This welcoming hotel had a lovely beach front location with ample parking but our...

We were very surprised, having read past reviews, to find that the hotel was excellent in all areas. Although we booked a room without a sea view, we found that the facilities were excellent. All areas of this hotel seem to have been recently refurbished. The restaurant, we found was well appointed with good views, very good service and a... More

I booked in as I needed some quiet time after a stressful period at work - and I was able to sleep very well and recharge my batteries. My room was clean and spacious and as it had been described when I booked. The staff were excellent, in my opinion: friendly, smiley and courteous. The food is not gourmet or... More
