“Beautiful 'country manor'”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Alberton is gracious, stately, innovative, beautiful home. Much of the house's original furnishings and fittings are still in place, and we were given a brief history by one of the volunteers that oversee the home. A very pleasant place to while away some time.

“Historical House, worth a visit”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

A historical house formally build and owned by a rich merchant. The house displays outer and inner designs of that time. Furniture and decoration are kept as they were. Worth a visit.

“Alberton house”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

A great look into how houses used to be oh so long ago. Decorated in classic old fashioned style you'd expect from the 18th -19th century. A short trip into what life was like back then.
A well preserved old place in the heart of Mount Albert

“Alberton”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Nice grounds, not huge but very pleasant. Grand old house to get the feel of what life might have been like for these people. .
