Once again we visited The Albany, which was organised by Woods Coaches of Barnsley. Excellent bedroom, clean and whilst there is scaffolding to the front and rear of the Hotel, it did not spoil the holiday. Maintainance is essential. The food was very good and plentyful. The staff were most helpful and eager to help at all times. If people... More

We booked this through booking.com, at no time was there any mention of scaffolding all over the front and side elevation of hotel, even when I rang to book a sea view room and was told it was an extra £10 a night the DAY before I arrived. I realise that hotels need re-furbishment but if I had been made... More

Scaffolding and wooden planks view from our sea view room. Very small room number 309.Restaurant closed at 7.30pm. Incredible ! Tiny bathroom. Scruffy room with paint peeling from ceiling. Dirt on pipes. Photos online misleading. Do not stay at this hotel. There are better choices in Eastbourne.

The room was very small quite contrary to the photos on Expedia. The bathroom was very small . The room was dirty -... More

Clean rooms, comfortable beds and exceptional food. Had a problem with room security as we were unable to lock our room door, Staff did try to remedy the situation, without success, so our room could be entered from the corridor for the duration of our stay..
