“A thank you for making our stay so comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I feel I do not need to write another review because what can I say here that hasn't already been said. I am sure there is much hard work put in by the owners to make our stay so very pleasant. It was appreciated and I already have commended you to our travel agent to encourage them to send more guests to your establishment. As well as a well appointed bedroom, pretty lounge, great breakfast, it was the little caring touches that made you special. eg quickly and quietly taking someone's breakfast back to the kitchen to keep warm when they took a phone call; actually lending us cash for one of our last minute trips where they would not take a credit card! We holiday in different hotels and countries for about three months each year and have never found anywhere as good. Thank you very much.

Craig and Sally made us feel genuinely welcome, they could not possibly have done more to make our stay better.
The home-made cakes for afternoon tea, the five star concierge service and cleanlinesses all unbeatable but the breakfasts were divine. Amazing fruit and especially the rhubarb, thanks Craig. Thank you Sally for the recipe for brownies.
The property is close to the beach and the great itineraries suggested for our stay in the area were really interesting.

What a wonderful welcome after a long drive from Perth. Nothing was too much trouble for Sally or Craig- such incredibly welcoming hosts- bikes provided, lifts to town, gourmet breakfasts, spontaneous advice on what to see and where to go, port and chocs at night , advice on restaurants, fully stoked fridge of lovely wines, clean,comfortable, smiles abound. We should have stayed longer and didn't want to move on . Thanks for giving us such a great stay. No wonder so many awards for excellence adorn the walls

Dear DavidJ
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us - thank you for sharing your experience with potential visitors via Trip Advisor.
Albany is such a lovely town and the coastline spectacular - glad you enjoyed using the bikes to cover the extra ground while sight seeing.
Although we are a long way from your home we hope we may welcome you (or your family and friends) back at some time into the future.
Warm regards

Stayed here while waiting for my husband to arrive on a Clipper yacht from South Africa and I definitely chose the right place. From the moment I arrived, wearied from a long flight from the UK and then a five hour drive in the pouring rain from Perth, the very lovely Craig and Sally looked after me - settling me in with a cuppa and some chocolate brownie. My room was lovely, clean and spacious and everything that you could ever need. Breakfast is to die for - local eggs and homegrown asparagus - yum! And Craig is only too happy to drive you into Albany and even pick you up if he is around. These guys take hospitality to a new level - and they really are genuinely great people. They know that they have an open invitation to come and see us in Scotland.
Nothing is too much trouble for Craig and Sally. I heard recent reports of a shark spotted at Middleton beach but I have no doubt that Craig will have run down to the bay and seen it off - and all before he cooks a fantastic breakfast!

We have stayed in many great hotels and guest houses around the world and the Beach House is a contender for the best ever. Sally and Craig love what they do and it shows. Nothing is too much trouble, every guest is treated like a VIP. Have a problem - we had one with the next hotel we were going to - they see it as their mission to solve it. Need a lift to a restaurant - they will do it - free of charge. The spa room we had was just lovely. It simply could not have been better. The attention to detail is impressive. And the little touches - like a decanter of port and chocolates outside our room for a nightcap, or the home made cakes left in the room in the afternoon - make you feel you are in a special place. Breakfast was a delight, fresh local produce, fruit, yogurt, perfectly poached eggs, asparagus.....I could have eaten everything. And the beach! Wow! Your own stretch of pristine white sand and the warm Southern Ocean rolling in just a couple of hundred yards stroll away. I don't know if we will ever come back to Western Australia but if we do we will make a beeline for the Beach House.

Room Tip: I should think they are all excellent.

No, this was not an 'added extra' just a fortuitous coincidence (the gifted UK actress, writer et al stayed in our room the night before we took up occupancy, so technically ...). Okay, extras aside, Craig and Sally are excellent hosts. They make you feel welcome (Craig's recall of guests' names is prodigious!), they are informative without being at all overbearing, the range of continental breakfast foodstuffs is plentiful, fresh and of consistently high quality! In addition, guests are offered a hot dish consisting of local delicacies and ultra-fresh produce (Hint: Try the poached eggs and young asparagus ... mmmm). There is - if you wish to use it - a comfortable lounge (so if you are travelling with another couple you could meet up without having to crowd into each other's rooms.). The rooms are spacious and well-appointed and, after a day of sightseeing, the afternoon tea and port/chocolates left in the room is most welcome! All this is within walking distance of the beach and/or a golf course. While the location is a little out of town this did make for the most quiet of environments in which to gain an excellent sleep. The friend with whom I was travelling was asleep before head-hit-pillow ... so it would have been nice if Ms Hart had tarried a little longer. Finally, next time I stay I shall put in a request for Graham Norton ...

Both my business partner and myself were visiting Albany for just one day. Our stay at Beach House was excellent although only for a short time. Rooms large and spotlessly clean. Owners were very hospitable.
We both commented that it would be a perfect place to bring our wives, peaceful and relaxing and 3 minute walk to an amazing part of the beach.
Breakfast was delicious and Sally got up early to make it so we didn't miss our flight back to Perth.
Top Spot.

Dear Graham S
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay for work earlier in the month. So glad you enjoyed the property and the location - a great spot for a walk or job before the working day and we're always happy to accommodate for special timing requests etc.
Of course it would be much more relaxing next time if you can bring your wife! We have just the room in mind .... I thinks she'd love the Colonnade King Spa Room!
Best wishes and we look forward to welcoming you back for both work and leisure!
