Very disappointed in this experience - paid nearly £300 for two nights! Room nice with sea views, huge bathroom but small horrible shower that dripped and was gungy. Hotel Book in room explained facilities and said one tea and one coffee per person per day and if you required more there was a supermarket nearby! Breakfast said "Fruit" - this... More

We have been staying at The Albion for some years. Whilst it might not be luxurious enough for some it does have unrivalled views on the quietest side of the island. The rooms are spacious and clean with good sized bathrooms. The staff without exception are welcoming, courteous and helpful. Breakfast choices are good and the evening meal is good... More

I want to give 5 stars but am restraining myself as the hotel has definitely seen better times - however our 3 nights there were perfect and I would change very little. The location is stunning; the cliffs are unusual, the light changes constantly and we could almost have jumped into the sea from our balcony. The room and bathroom... More

Paid 300 pound for two nights for a room with a patio and view of the sea. However the patio door did not open! The room did not have any wifi , this was only accesible in the bar area near reception. The most ludicrous situation however was the indoor pool ; to access it you had to walk through... More

Good location, although if you don't eat in the hotel you will need to drive to get a meal. The staff were helpful but often didn't understand your order and for example could not tell you if a desert would be hot or cold. The hotel was very clean, with some great views, but very quiet and did lack atmosphere.... More

Absolutely love it here. Staff very friendly and helpful. I'm disabled in a power wheelchair and it's easy too get around. There's a couple of steps to the dinning room. But I can manage those. Rooms are a lovely size and nice and clean. Beds are the best we've ever had in a hotel. We have a balcony which is... More

The outside looks a bit shabby and the bar looked a little run down at first. Once inside the staff were friendly and the Room was good. We booked a family room which came with two double beds, the room was a great size with a sea view balcony, the bathroom was massive with Bath and seperate shower. Overall the... More

Really good breakfast and the bar has a great sea view (and the best lager). Yarmouth pubs and restaurants are three miles away (bike or cab) and Freshwater Bay has good access to cycle routes. Good secure storage.
