“deserves #1 rating!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We chose this B&B because it was the best rated B&B in Isle of Man. We stayed 2 nights and it was really very good and justifies the rating and should be the benchmark for all aspiring B&B managers - not only in IOM but everywhere!
Superb room, great service, very well located etc etc. But also, you just know that lots of effort goes in behind the scenes to make your stay as good as it should be- from the quality of room finishes, to the information pack in the room etc.
well done to Nigel and Nikki.

Room Tip: we stayed in Fraser room - definately worth it.

We have stayed in many B & Bs but Albany House is the best. For hospitality, food, cleanliness and being made to feel that nothing is too much trouble Nigel and Nikki are superb. They made our stay most enjoyable. We have stayed in the Marriott, the Hilton and the Lowry but Albany House is far superior. There were ample supplies in our room, tea sugar, biscuits, iron, hair dryer but its that 'homely welcoming' feeling that is everything. The house is warm and inviting with a log fire burning in the front room-sitting room. Nigel chats away to everyone while he is cooks a superb breakfast and the whole atmosphere is relaxed and homely. It is situated only minutes away from the beach and as we like to think of ourselves as Silver Streakers (we are runners) Nikki showed us a good running rout and said we could use their washing facilities to rinse out our kits. Nigel arranged a fishing trip and even came along with us. We would definitely recommend Albany House and Peel for a relaxed, warm and friendly break. There is also lots to see in Peel, museum, castle, fishermen in their boats, places to eat and relax and get to know the history and culture of Peel. Can't forget Coco and Ralphy who greet one with loud barks and wagging tails, like two old friends and also the beautifully tiled hallway which has been restored to its original Victorian elegance.

Room Tip: Everything about Albany House is perfect.

Albany House is exceptional! We have stayed in bed and breakfasts in many different countries. Nikki and Nigel are the best! They were always available for questions, to hear about our days adventures, and make sure we had EVERYTHING we needed. The house is in the middle of Peel- walking distance to the points of interest plus the bus. No hassle parking. Now, the food! Well, we loved our breakfasts and the conversation around the table. You name it Nigel will cook it up for you. Everything was clean and well maintained throughout the house. A hot bath at the end of the day was heavenly. Comfy beds, linens, and pillows. We were sad to be leaving Peel and saying good bye to Nikki and Nigel.

We needed to come to the IOM for a short family visit and just had to stay at Albany House again. The welcome we received from Nikki and Nigel, and definitely not forgetting Coco and Ralphy, was like meeting up with old friends again. This time we had the yellow room; in a word, beautiful. It's at the back, so very quiet and also gets the morning sun. The new kitchen/ dining area is superb which means the conversations just flow over breakfast. And, of course, Nigel's breakfasts are as superb as always. We will return as soon as we can for a proper break.

Albany House has excellent reviews, and it's no wonder at all. I couldn't imagine a better B&B! Nikki and Nigel are the most gracious and welcoming of hosts, and you truly do feel right at home. The entire house could not be in a better condition, and has clearly been kept up to the very highest standard, with no expense spared--from the authentic cast-iron clawfoot tubs, to the fresh and modern conservatory breakfast area adjoining the kitchen, the house maintains a characterful feel with all the mod cons.

Our roomy king-sized bed in the Fraser room was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in, with Egyptian cotton sheets and cozy quilts. Extra blankets and lovely dressing gowns in the wardrobe were a nice extra touch. Plenty of teas (including fruit and decaf!), coffee, sugars, sweeteners, milk, bottled waters, and even a lovely tin of biscuits were included in the room. The bath was the best I've ever had (I couldn't resist two in one day!) although the modern shower was also perfect. There were plenty of toiletries, even bubble bath, and things such as razors and deodorant in case one forgot an essential item at home. Underfloor heating and a radio in the ceiling of the bathroom were so luxurious.

Nikki and Nigel were so lovely and helpful, giving us lots of advice about the island, especially as we are moving over soon. They are truly an incredible source of knowledge and connections, and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. We really enjoyed hearing lots of local knowledge and stories from Nigel as he cooked our yummy breakfasts in the morning--for which you also have lots of choice, of cooked or cold breakfast items. I highly recommend the salmon and eggs! Nigel's background is in the hospitality business and he is a trained chef, so you'll want for nothing, especially at breakfast!

Just a five or so minute walk from the seafront and a great pub, The Creek, Albany House is also in a great location. Peel is one of the most picturesque towns on the island, and the House of Mannanan museum is NOT to be missed!

Overall, I could not have asked for anything better. From the friendly dogs Ralphie and Coco welcoming you, to the perfect tiny touches such as three-legged Manx triskelion paper lining the drawers, to the gorgeous handmade cross-stitched Isle of Man wall hangings, to the endlessly helpful and friendly hosts, you couldn't ask for more from a B&B.

Highly, highly recommended. Stay there as soon as you possibly can!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Fraser room, which is I believe the biggest. It's spacious, bright, and beautif...

What a lovely, lovely place. Nigel and Nikki are absolutely amazing and accommodating. My friend and I went for a muddy hike one day, and Nikki was kind of enough to take our dirty clothing and wash it for us (even though she had just gotten home from work). Their dogs, Ralphy and Coco, are absolute dolls. I admit, I got a little emotional when I had to leave. There isn't a better place to stay in Peel. Not a single thing to complain about. Go to the Albany House-you will have a relaxing and amazing experience. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The Yellow Room was darling.

My mum and I stayed whilst visiting family and almost didn't want to leave the B&B.The house its self is absolutely beautiful and Nikki and Nigel went above and beyond to ensure our stay felt personal and welcoming. All of this is before the incredible fresh and freshly cooked breakfast. I can't recommend it enough and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Only stayed in the Fraser room which has a lovely big bed, a large bathroom, and a view of the sea.
