I am stayed here with friends because we were attending another friend's 50th birthday and it was in walking distance of his home. We had read the reviews and were therefore not anticipating much. The hotel is in a superb location with lovely views and very spacious rooms with balcony . Clearly in desperate need of upgrading , the décor... More

We love this hotel. Its situation is unique. Staff are friendly and efficient. Large well appointed luxurious facilities. Although busy it was quiet and relaxing. Breakfast was more than adequate. Decor clean and tasteful. Pool was clean and modern. Fawlty towers it was NOT. Excellent value for the price. We will be back.

The hotel sits in a lovely spot, the rooms are large as are the bathrooms, We shared a room with three adults and one child. We only had two cups for complementary drinks. The curtains are old and torn. The bath rooms very nice and the pool lovely. The terrace however is hazardous as some tiles are broken or missing.

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Why you might ask? The service by the manager and her team was exceptional making us very welcome. Our holiday did not start out well as our first hotel was of a poor standard and there was no way we were going to stay, not knowing what to do we... More

Went for a drink during the day as friends staying in the hotel. What a disappointment. No beer on draught - bottled beer only. Ordered a lime and soda - where was the lime! Tables outside not cleared and dirty. Ladies toilets not particularly clean! Used to come to this hotel many years ago when it was buzzing and well... More

I arranged a group booking for 30 Ramblers at The Albion. All were impressed by its great location right by the sea with super views,, Not overly prepossessing from the outside (Channel winds and salt spray have taken their toll) but a very high standard of accommodation inside (huge quiet bedrooms and spacious bathrooms, good sized bar, lovely dining room...

The rooms are of generous proportions and that's the only good thing I have to say about the hotel The staff are so dismissive and the customers are just an inconvenience, the worst customer service I have ever experienced in a hotel We had to go and search to get someone to serve us at the bar, just such bad...

Just returned from our trip. Booked on bookings.com and got a fantastic room, 214. It was huge with separate bath/shower, balcony and even shortbread biscuits. Breakfast was lovely, hot and nicely served. Reviews say it's dated, but I'd say quaint. Lovely place and staff were really pleasant and helpful, will be back

The Albion was in a really great setting. The bay is right out the front door. The view is outstanding. It is so wonderful to hear the surf as you are falling asleep. We did not have any food at the hotel but meals are available as well. There are several Island buses that stop just a few feet from... More

The location is very good,the room we had was comfortable with a pleasant outlook.The staff generally were very friendly and efficient apart from the waiting staff.The ground floor was tired and needed modernising. We felt the food was grossly overpriced.We had dinner on the first night and it consisted of packet soup,a small chicken breast with three new potatoes and... More
