We stayed at the Albany along with some friends and family to celebrate a special occasion. All rooms were of an excellent standard, with some lovely finishing touches. Breakfast was a real treat with a wonderful selection of fruit salad, cereals and a full English Breakfast. It was great to see that a lot of produce is sourced locally. Toby... More

This is a wonderful establishment and a real pleasure to stay in. Toby and Nikki are very pleasant and helpful. We have stayed in many similar establishments and this is the best by far. Cannot fault it. Lovely room, good parking and just a short walk to the sea front. Perfect.

This was a welcome and refreshing place to stay for 2 nights while exploring the southwest . The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was clean and bright and breakfast was generous and very tasty. We highly recommend the Albany to anyone looking for a B & B in this area.

Toby and Nikki have thought of everything: We stayed for three nights and it was great to have a wardrobe with plenty of hangers and shelves and room for the empty suitcases. There were lots of charging stations including multiple USB next to the bed. Two networks made wifi reliable (unlike many places we've stayed.) Everything is spotless and feels... More

We stayed at The Albany Guest House for four nights last week. We were made to feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and decorated to a high standard. Breakfasts were delicious with a wide choice of good quality produce. Toby and Nikki were perfect hosts. We would certainly recommend The Albany as a wonderful place to stay.
