Never having been to Ramsgate we made a random hotel selection and came up with The Albion. What a brilliant choice we made. This hotel is luxury on a small scale with smart, efficient and friendly staff, the bed was one of the most comfortable ever, the food was very good and this would always be our first choice Ramsgate...

This hotel is perfect for a short break from London, we went by rail it's just 1 hr 20 mins from St Pancras to Broadstairs and a 10 minute walk at the other end. Charles Dickens spent time here and the Dickens House Museum is next door. On arrival staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well... More

Booked this hotel at the last minute and was delighted by the quality and service received. Excellent for those wanting the beach but also as a place to walk to the station and get the train to Canterbury.

The views are amazing if you get a sea view room. Parking was a pain as it wasn't on site. Room was dirty. To be far I would pay just for the view broadstairs is gorgeous We complained about the dirty room and did get a voucher to go back. They where very apologetic. Silly things like the mirror was...

Lovely charming hotel with nicely furnished rooms and an old fashioned feel that is sadly missing in many hotels these days. I tend to dislike attempts to put in a sense of modernity that lacks any style logic like the light fittings in the dining room or the boxed photograph frames with snippets of sailing images straight out of Next...

I can not fault the customer service but unfortunately the hotel itself could definitely do better. Having grown up in the area I know Broadstairs well and the Albion seemed to have a good reputation As a hotel. I've regularly eaten and drank in the cafe/ bar downstairs so when I came back to visit the town I thought this... More

Broadstairs is like stepping back in time. The Royal Albion Hotel is beautiful. Unfortunately we didn't have a sea view which would have made all the difference. Our room was a family room on the 3rd floor which meant climbing up narrow stairs. The bed was comfy, pillow great, sheets great hotel quality. The bathroom was bigger than the room.... More

Although it has a grand position at the foot of the town centre and overlooking the main beach, the Royal Albion is much more 'commercial' than you might expect from its website or its pricing. Our 'standard' bedroom and bathroom were OK - although built on a considerable slope - and there were nice amenities and comfortable seating in the... More
