The Albany Apartments are absolutely brilliant. We stayed for a week in the Victor Hugo suite which offers a lovely sizeable balcony overlooking the pool and it catches the morning sun. The suite is extremely comfortable and the kitchen well equipped (including a dishwasher). The communal pool table is just outside the door which I noted a previous reviewer mentioning - we were not bothered at all by any noise. The swimming pool is an added bonus and very well used by all the guests - during our stay (in the school holidays) there were a large number of families with young children and many were keen to be in the pool when it's opens at 8am. The apartments surround the pool and garden and make a very secure environment. The main road up from St. Peter Port can be busy but it is not noticeable from the apartments (except for the odd siren!). St. Peter Port is a 15 minute walk downhill and whilst the return journey is quite a climb it enables you to walk off all the delicious food Guernsey has to offer. Buses are available if you don't fancy the walk (but it is a nice walk passing beautiful properties). My review about Guernsey could go on & on (fantastic beaches, food, people etc.) but you will just have to visit to see for yourself!
We had a lovely weeks stay in the Victor Hugo apartment. The heated outdoor pool was fab and the location is perfect to walk into St.Peters port (you certainly burn off some calories walking back up the hill!). Our boys are teenagers so the pool table got used quite a bit. The close down times for the swimming pool and pool table were respected by all families so everyone could settle down for the evening. Everything was clean and in good working order and management were helpful with any questions we had.
Highly recommend the Albany Apartment, proved to be a great choice for our week on Guernsey.
Stayed in the Victor Hugo Suite, a lovely spacious apartment which gets the morning sun so a lovely spot for breakfast on the balcony.
Tracey the manager, couldn't of been more helpful in the lead up to the holiday, answering any questions quickly and on the booking in, We had an early flight so arranged to leave our cases there, whilst we went for an explore. Kitchen includes a welcome pack, which is a lovely touch and gets you milk tea coffee ect.
Location wise, for us it couldn't of been any better, 10 minute walk downhill to St Peterport, Bus stop at the end of the road and Waitrose a 10/ 15 minute walk but also on the bus route if carrying too many bags.
Incidentally bus service on Guernsey is brilliant with any Journey costing £1, although for £37 we bought an unlimited family card lasting 7 days.
All in all spot on and will be returning which really is the ultimate compliment.
Cheers Albany keep up the good work
We stayed here for a few days in July 2017 with my Mum.
It's a 10 minute transfer from the airport (£10.40 in a Taxi)
Tracy checked us in to Apartment 21 and she was lovely.... friendly and helpful with lots of practical advice and suggestions. The map of the Island was really handy too.
Waitrose is a pleasant 15 minutes walk away so you can stock up on all your essentials (Vodka !!! - It is our holiday after all)
The apartment was lovely. Over two floors and with everything you wsnt want and expect.
The patio doors out onto the balcony are lovely with a view over the heated swimming pool which is great for a dip !!
Appreciate that the metal grid flooring of the balcony is probably to allow more light to the apartments below but it wasn't very comfortable on the feet... although a pair of flip flops soon sorted that.
We generally walked down into town (20 mins) and then got the bus back (41 or 42 will drop you at the end of The Queens Road)
Melissa (The owner) was the perfect host who went way above beyond expectations. We went to get a bus but it was full so we returned to the apartment to order a cab. Melissa was there and offered to take us in her car. She not only took us but came back to collect us and then suggested she take us to the little chapel so we could see that too. How lovely and kind. There was lots of interesting conversation in the car too !!
Tracy helped us with on line check in and boarding cards. All with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble.
Definitely recommend... You won't disappointed :)
Great 2 week stay at The Albany, lovely 2 bedroomed ground floor apartment with access to heated outdoor pool. Fully equipped kitchen with good bathroom and sitting room. Washer and drier facilities. Great location with nice walk into town. Lovely and helpful Staff.
The kids and I loved our stay: the pool was great, the location excellent and Tracey gave me some great tips on what to do on the island.
