My daughter and I stayed at the Albion Inn for 2 nights in August. Everything was perfect, from the room to the meals and the company. We both enjoyed our stay immensely, especially our downtime in the garden. Highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to write this complimentary review. It's so funny how TripAdvisor's scores don't always align with the written review...

My wife and I were fortunate to have stayed at the Albion. Cyd was a great hostess. The food, grounds, and location were terrific They are one of very few bed and breakfasts with wheelchair access. But whatever your needs, they seem very eager to accommodate you. Highly recommended!.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming B&B in the romantic Garden View room. Before breakfast we jogged to beautiful Lithia Park up the trails and returned in time for Cyd's delicious and healthy breakfasts. Each morning started with a delicious smoothie and fruit cup followed by a tasty egg dish all beautifully presented. Our room and private bathroom (with a claw-foot tub) were very comfortable with all the thoughtful conveniences needed for guests (e.g., lemon scented locally made soap, make-up removing towelettes, hair dryer, extra pillows, etc.). Snacks were also available in the evening. A mini-bar with a mini-frig is also available to guests where we were able to store our wine and treats we picked up from the local co-op store which was walking distance away. In the evening we enjoyed our wine as we sat in the lovely garden. Cyd was the perfect host to help create a memorable stay in Ashland!

Room Tip: The Garden View room had a lovely view and was very comfortable.

The Albion Inn was a breath of fresh air in the otherwise sterile hotels of Ashland. Syd, who is the face behind the Inn, was very friendly, energetic and excellent at customer satisfaction. Her breakfasts were delicious and very ample and also keyed to good nutrition with whole grains and low sugar dishes.
The Inn is very clean and well run and well laid out, with all the features that you could want in a B& B. The only slight downside is that, as in all B&B's the rooms are close to the next and more intimate than a hotel...for both good and not so good reasons.

Thank you for your very positive review. I am puzzled as to why this reviewer rated the Albion with an overall 4 points, when they gave us 5 stars in all but one category! Math error or intentional? Our guests tell us not to worry about city ranking, but in this highly competitive B&B town, a 4 star rating is like getting an F! It saddens me to think this reviewer thought they were helping us!

This was our first visit to the Albion Inn, but we will be back. The location is perfect. Easy walking distance to downtown and the theater. The rooms are comfortable and well ventilated. The sunny garden is captivating and a wonderful place to spend some time. The breakfasts are excellent. Tea, cookies, sherry and the like are available in the evening. The conversation around the dining table is rich and varied. Thanks much, Cyd and Gary, for a great stay.

I stumbled across the Albion Inn quite by accident when the place I had originally intended to book my stay at ended up being full. It was definitely a happy accident! The Albion is easily within walking distance to OSF & Lithia Park, even for those who may not be in the greatest of shape, but is just far away enough from the center of activity that it is extremely quiet and serene. The gardens are absolutely beautiful & a great place to sit and read. I stayed in the Chautauqua room, which was well appointed, comfortable,and VERY clean. The mattress was probably the best I've slept on... between that and the quiet, I got several nights of sound sleep. The rooms all have ensuite bathrooms, which is much appreciated. The breakfasts were tasty, and beautifully presented. Cyd and Gary were both very nice, and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Cyd is an enthusiastic conversationalist, and would join the guests at the table after breakfast had been served to get to know her guests, discuss what shows we had seen or were seeing, and generally keep the conversation going around the table. Next time I plan a trip to the area, I will be making the Albion Inn my first choice in accomodations... I lucked out this time!

OK. So. Here is the thing: the location? Fantastic. You can walk easily to anywhere in downtown Ashland. The house? Beautiful and well kept. The room? Nooks, crannies, gorgeous (we took pictures). The garden? Lovely in the morning, useful during meals (they used items from it for breakfast). The reviews we had read about breakfast were why we chose this place, and it was very good, no doubt. They gave us a nice tour of the place when we showed up (not too long, not too short). Nice sitting area. We used their mini fridge downstairs, and the rather strong wifi.

Now, breakfast.

First, we all had to eat together at 9:00 sharp. This is, admittedly, not my favorite (I like to be able to eat when we want to eat breakfast). Second, even though they said "9:00!! Be here right at 9:00!!!!!" We actually sat down at 9:10. I wouldn't have cared in the least, were it not for the fact that they made such a big deal out of the time.

However: at breakfast, to our relative shock, there was a very long, very adamant tirade from our cook/innkeeper/host about the politics of home birth and the legal status of home birthing and midwives in Oregon. Now, call me old-fashioned, but, while we actually pretty much agree with her politics, I have to say: the breakfast table is not the place to mention, even once, the words "dead babies." Our host did not know her guests' backgrounds, it was not a conversation (rather, a monologue), and at one point she sat down at the table with us all while speechifying. We were at the opposite end of the table, coincidently, and tried very hard to have a conversation with the nice man sitting across from us. It was too hard, in the end, and we ended up just going upstairs to pack. The couple next to us, from England, beat a pretty quick retreat to their room as soon as they could. We were, as it were, a captive audience (this was a bed and breakfast), so the presentation was difficult to avoid.

If not for that breakfast experience, we would probably be writing a much different review.

Room Tip: If you are between season, as we were, make sure you ask about A/C, etc. They were prepared for cold...
