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

In June we spent a very relaxing 4 days in the Isle Of wight staying in room 106 at the Albion. Victoria, the Manager couldn't do enough to make our stay more comfortable. The hotel is right by the sea looking out across freshwater bay, a small peaceful cove. Our bedroom was roomy and comfortable with a large en suite... More

OK hotel but bit tired. Outside walls needed painting. Service was good. Only negative was the insistence of cashing up the bar takings about 6pm when everyone in my party wanted a drink. Very small English breakfast.

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
