Royal Albion Hotel
Nice Hotel.Stayed here before a couple of times, booked over the phone with them direct. This time as it was last-minute decided to book through Late Rooms.
VERY last minute!
Recently, my husband and I planned an overnight stay in Brighton whilst holidaying in London.
We booked a hotel but on arrival, we realised we'd arrived a day too early. We contacted Laterooms.com and found an alternative hotel immediately. The Royal Albion was just perfect for our needs at a reasonable price.
I booked a superior double sea view room for a special anniversary.
The room was a badly maintained standard room, which in my view was over priced, also the sea view was ok , except we were on top of a very noisy two lane road , so we did not have a very restful night
There was no real service at breakfast all self serving. I was very disappointed with the whole hotel
An Okay Stay.
This could have been so much better.
We were placed in the basement and felt claustrophobic. Could hear voices all night of people walking fast. Had window opened as it was hot but there was a sewage smell from either outside or the room. It also felt a bit unsafe. The room was fairly clean and would have been excellent on a higher floor. The reception staff were a bit stern (bordering on rude) when we asked to be placed on a room above sea level and categorically refused. You must have to pay extra for daylight. As it was only one night we didn't bother arguing the toss. I am not sure about this hotel. Think it might be living on past reputation. On a plus note the outside of the hotel is impressive looking and its in a great location just by the pier.
Thou Shalt Not!
The hotel structure itself is lovely and ideally located.
But the staff are most inflexible and breakfast was inadequate. On day 1 I was refused a slice of cheese at breakfast when I pointed out that.
The hotel structure itself is lovely and the hotel is ideally located. But the staff are most inflexible and breakfast inadequate. On day 1 I was refused a slice of cheese at breakfast when I pointed out that, avoiding meat products, I could not partake of the standard provisions. On day 2 I addressed my cheese request to a passing manager and he did oblige. The breakfast coffee was undrinkable. The hotel is awash with proscriptions, e.g. "You must not this, you must not that". It is regrettable that management and staff appear unaware of their primary role which is to be at the service of the client. Start asking the receptionist to abandon that long face and smile when greeting new arrivals!
The location is perfect for a weekend in Brighton.
The only let down was not getting a cot when I requested one for my 6 month old. However we only stayed 1 night so we managed.
Une nuit au Royal Albion
Nous avons réservé une chambre de dernière minute au Royal Albion.
La chambre était fidèle aux photos, la literie confortable.
Shabby, dark, noisy a/c and unpleasant smell
Hotel in my opinion does not provide value for money.
While not only being overpriced the bedrooms are outdated and dirty.
