Overnight stay at the Albion

It's in a fabulous location right on the sea front by the pier
We only stayed for one night ( needed a bed for the night after dropping my son back to Uni ) We had a non smoking room , we had to keep the bathroom door closed to stop the smell of smoke wafting into the bedroom which was ? Coming in through bathroom ventilation . There was scaffolding outside our window with a printed notice on the bed advising us to keep the curtains closed as workmen would be outside from 8am -4pm . The room was clean and very basic one pillow on each bed . The bathroom was in great need of refurbishment ( obviously the hotel is being renovated as there were wet paint signs around the stair wells ) the towels were too small to wrap around you after showering we paid £72 for the room only and on reflection it was probably only worth half of that amount . The reception staff were very friendly and helpful .

Great Location, but not good value

Location, location, location
My wife and I stayed on a Thursday evening to meet friends who were staying there. We had a superior sea view room. The hotel has on-going refurbishment at present, scaffolding on the exterior after storm damage. Not only does the storm damage need rectifying, but the rooms need updating, badly stained carpets need replaced, cracks in walls need fixing, bathrooms need to be refurnished. Staff try their best, but the food quality and furnishings need to be improved to match the cost that they are charging !!

Internet connection is bad

location, view, decoration
Although the decoration is good and location is near the seaside, the internet connection is really bad. I asked to changed the room once and I and two other colleagues finally found the connection was bad in all our rooms. If you need to send&reply some important mails, or do some works during your travel. I don't recommend this hotel.

Poor rude staff, dirty rooms,

I found the staff very rude, they were not prepared to store my bag when I arrived before checkin. They also did not allow me to check in early. They were very unfriendly. The first room I got was in a basement, no sunlight or phone reception. They did kindly move me but in to a twin room. My friend stayed at the student hotel. So much better and a similar price.

This hotel was like staying in a hostel

it was near the pier,
To be honest the place is falling down. The we booked was a double, we got two single beds stuck together. The carpets were so disgusting, stained worn away with holes in carpet, mouldy fluff in corners of the room pure filth, the bath was disgusting with a bath panel hanging of taped to the bath totally worn out and dirty. Scaffolding out side the window, we were not told of that, rubbish left outside your window plus old clothes and shoes from who ever was working there at one time the windows were so dirty through out the hotel room. For an extra a night you can stay in a real hotel. This hotel is a Disgusting place.

Never stayed in a hotel this bad in UK

Looks good from outside. Manager Vanessa was helpful. She gave us another better room for a few hours. We checked out anyway
The room was so smelly we could not sleep the whole night. Heater was not working. So we checked out.

good value.. excellent position

price and excellent positio
For the price, it was excellent value. My room was a bit dated and dusty in places with a very outdated tv. However, the staff were welcomimg and a problem i had with the bathplug not fitting(!) was sorted out quickly. i think some reviwers are rather unfair when you think that i paid £15 less than a travellodge up the road. My room was a standard double so i presume if id paid the extra that the quality would have been better. The hotel is so close to everything that it is ideal for most people. i am going back soon so will see what my next room is like!

The Reception staff communication was "you need to be out by 10 a.m.". They had no need to worry on that score, had we not not been so tired after a long journey we would have left as soon as we saw the room. Dingy, furniture which was a "style" not seen since immediately after the 2nd World War, the lighting fittings resembled those one normally finds in a caravan, the curtains barely met and it appeared that there were missing hooks, the carpets had dubious stains on them, the pictures were, rather optimistically screwed to the wall by clearly visible screws, we barely slept in the uncomfortable bed but next morning had been bitten by whatever shared the bed with us, the bath fittings didn't match and there was a previous occupant's hair in the bath.

Nice stay

staff cleaniness location
Can't fault it. The location is perfect, central. The room we had was a good size with a table and chairs. It was very clean and perfectly comfortable for the price. It was nice and quiet too. The tv is a bit dated but that wasn't a priority. Bed comfortable and clean sheets. I always find that the staff are nice and very efficient at this hotel and also make check in very efficient and quick.
