Spent a night at The Albany pub accommodation. The pub & gardens are fine, but the rooms are almost an afterthought because the cleanliness is not great. Hall, stairs & room carpets need a thorough clean. Some bathroom tiles were broken & the shower was efficient but there was black mould in the grouting. The bed was clean & very... More

My g/f and I came here for lazy sunny afternoon beers and some food. The outside seating area was perfect for what we wanted and even though there was little on the menu to cater for vegetarians, the chef wrangled up the most fantastic veggie burger - we were really impressed. Great place to come !

Just what I needed at the end of a long day and at a great price. Well kept pint and food in the pub, then retired to a warm, clean room and slept like a log. One of the most comfy beds I have slept in for a long time with crisp linen. I guess I could have paid £100... More

Stayed here with my wife for a Saturday night out in Guildford. Positives are it's a great location, clean and tidy room, comfortable bed, and friendly/helpful staff. Our room was a bit tired and it was a bit noisy in the bar below, but not enough to keep us awake. Overall it was a good stay and I would return.

I rang the pub earlier in the evening to let them know I wouldn't be able to make an 11pm check-in and they were very accommodating; the young man on the phone told me this wouldn't be a problem and settled my anxieties. My room was clean and quaint, although in need of some aesthetic repair, and the bed was... More

Stayed at the Albany for one night to visit the Spectrum which is just up the road. Really Friendly staff upon arrival, food looked really nice (Although we didnt actually eat there) Room was clean, tidy and had everything we needed - I was told we would be given cereals for breakfast but wasn't - but to be honest it...

I was recently booked in this pub and had the top floor room, number 4. The room is in need of TLC and painting, broken tiles, marked walls, stained carpet and so on but i have to say the room was extremely clean and very quiet. The duvet, pillows, linen were great and i give a 10 to the bed,... More

Nice pub downstairs, pleasant staff but unfortunately that’s where it ends. Stairs up to room had scuffed walls & dirty carpet, felt like we were entering some backpackers digs. The room was very poor condition, scuffed walls & skirting boards. Carpet dirty & wrinkled up in places One bedside cabinet you couldn’t open as its draws were pushed up hard... More

Well it's central, which is great (it's right around the corner from the best Chinese restaurant in Guildford, the Mandarin). The bed was very comfy indeed, and the room was warm and cosy. The breakfast we knew was just a box of cereal, but it comes with long life milk in a tiny noisy fridge, so... Forget breakfast and go... More

At £55 for two people including an 'in room' breakfast of cereal and orange juice you would be hard pushed to find a match for value especially given the excellent location. The pub is lovely but the accommodation doesn't quite match up. Furniture was good but it is things like the slightly unpainted walls and stained carpets that make it... More
