We stayed in Room #1, which features a comfortable queen bed, with electric blankets for the winter, and reverse cycle air-conditioning above the daybed by the window, a step down to a small sitting room with comfortable chairs, coffee table and mini fridge and wall mounted TV, plus a doorway thru to a robe and dressing area. Outside of our room was a vestibule, and our own private bathroom with deep clawfoot bath, with old fashioned overhead shower, a very pleasant bathing experience. The door from the vestibule leads onto the lovely breakfast dining room (the door is key lockable). Superior tea and coffee facilities, plus biscuits for afternoon tea (and chocolates on your pillow in the evening) are a nice touch.
Downstairs is a communal sitting room with comfortable chesterfields, a rear area with chairs and table should you perhaps wish to play cards or board games, plus a "library" where you can borrow a paperback or two, in exchange for one you have read on your travels. A decanter of port beckons during a winters evening.
We were the only guests staying at the time, and were made very welcome by Adrian and Alison. Both love to have a chat while you breakfast, and have helpful local knowledge of Albany and its attractions. Breakfast features homemade mueslis, cereal, yoghurts, seasonal fruits, juices, toasts and condiments, plus your own pot of tea, or plunger coffee. The breakfast room also boasts a beautiful view over the City of Albany and the Princess Royal Harbour to the Peninsula, wind farm and Torndirrup National Park. In the winter time, you can really watch the weather rolling across the Southern Ocean.
A lovely, cosy and quiet place to stay, with private off-street carparking.
