My partner and I stayed three nights at Albaston in mid Setember 2013 and I was very impressed. I understand that the owners, Dean and Richard, have only very recently taken over Albaston and it is completely unrecognisable from the time I once stayed there a few years ago. Under Dean and Richard, the standards are now very high although the charge for the room was not. The room size was very big, beautifully decorated, the new ensuite bathroom was very stylish and the big double bed very comfortable so we slept soundly.
We were impressed too with the range of choice for breakfast which was beautifully presented. We also ate twice in the restaurant in the evening and the food was really very good…fresh and cooked to perfection.
There a few other positives to mention too…the very convenient private parking, the quietness of the location, despite being so close to everything, and the excellent service offered by the owners. We go to Torquay a couple of times a year and we know exactly where we want to stay from now on.
