“Great Service, Friendly B&B”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at AFGH. The rooms were comfortable, great selection of complimentary DVD's, delicious breakfast and friendly service. Word of advice if you are staying on a weekend, request the rooms at the back of the building.

Very interesting building, the highest ceiling we have ever slept under! Filled with artworks and antique cameras. Staff very friendly and welcoming, allowed us to keep our car parked here while we walked the Bibbullman track for a few days. Just what we were looking for.

If you like your accommodation with a bit of character, this place is for you! The floor to (incredibly high) ceiling paintings make for interesting decor. Our host was fantastic and provided an excellent breakfast and a toasted sandwich in the evening - we didn't even need to go out for dinner!

We were very thankful to come across the AFGH overlooking the harbour. The rooms were cosy, clean and had all the necessary amenities. The service was fantastic. Sarin makes a great breakfast and couldn't do enough for us - a great manager and host. The eclectic décor was unique but grew on us over the couple of days we were there.

We stayed here for a night. The guesthouse had wonderful old charm to it. The staff were wonderful. They were helpful in providing information about the town and sights to see. The guesthouse were decorated with replica paintings. Breakfast was great. We had a few selections to pick from. I had an omelette and toast, my daughter had the grand breakfast which included eggs, toast, bake beans, grill tomato, bacon and my husband had an egg Benedict. That was just 3 selections out of 6 or 7.
Our room was large with bathroom. The room was clean. The decor may look out of date but it fits the time period of the house. Evening they served toast. There was a kitchen area where you can make tea, coffee or grab a glass if cold water. The staff were very accommodating to our needs. We really enjoyed talking to Sarin and the other 2 people. I didn't get their names.
The location was great. I recommend this guesthouse. It's not fancy but the people who works there are really nice.

We (2 couples) spent a night at the Albany Foreshore Guest House and our only regret was we did not stay longer. The rooms were small but very comfortable, with all our creature comfort needs met. The service was fantastic, the comfort factor high and the art work in each room was great. We really appreciated the complimentary ports, chocolates and orios. The offers of free toasted sandwiches during our stay was appreciated and we were blown away by the offer of lunch and drinks to take with us as we were departing. The big breakfast was magnificent and kept us going till late in the day. The location of the Guest House is great, very close to, restaurants, shops and attractions. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Would happily stay there again and would recommend it to couples staying in Albany.

Room Tip: Room 1 has free Wifi access and ensuite and room 4 has a large private bathroom with bath, shower, l...

Stayed here prior to our walk and post walk on the bibulmun track. Rooms are spacious and quaint. Sarin is an outstanding host friendly and welcoming. Sarin cooked the best omelette and upon us checking out gave us sandwiches, a drink and museli bar for our road trip.
Close to town, clean friendly highly recommended.
