Bad experience

Shown room someone else already in.

given another room with double bed we needed twin beds eventually they come up with more sheets told us to split the beds and make our own beds up.

Refused to pay the bill now got the inconvenience of sorting it out with laterooms.

The Albany

The room I booked was supposed to be a double but was given room 1 which was twin, the room though was clean and modern and excellent value for money.

There was only one complaint the blind on the window was broken and needs replacing asap. The breakfast consisted of a small box of cereal each and a bottle of juice but for the price in this area that was adequate. We were woken early by a knock at the door by a member of staff who asked if we were staying for another night - there was no information in the room for check out times, although we left by 11. We would recommend this pub for a night stay as it is in an ideal area if visiting Guildford.

Good value

The Albany is a value for money B and B pub round the corner from the shopping centre of Guildford.

Very well appointed room with ensuite shower, clean comfortable bed, good furnishings. Restaurant in pub serves good quality food. The pub could be noisy, (rugby match on TV when I arrived) but I had a room on the top floor so it was ok for me. Not suitable for any one with disabilities as there were two flights of steep stairs up to my room. Overall very good.

Enjoyable stay in Guildford

Booked in to Albany after friends recommended it so I knew of the set up before hand.

My room was on top floor and was comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful and sorted out a mix up about my room with minimum fuss. My only slight grumble would be that there was no real choice of breakfast cereal left in the room. First morning cornflakes and fruit and fibre ( love fruit and fibre so sorted!) Second morning cornflakes and coco pops (dont like either of them so no breakfast for me that morning) However I would definately come back again.

Not bad for budget room

Well you get what you pay for.

The room is not bad but do not expect luxury. For £55 in Guildford it is a great place to stay. The bed was comfy and there is plenty of hot water for a shower. The room does need some TLC for example new windows and a new blind at the bedroom window as it was falling to bits. The furniture has also seen better days and a blind at the bathroom window would prevent the locals seeing me in the shower!. Overall an acceptable stay but verging on not being if the room deteriorates any further!

Overall a good experience.

Helpful and cheerful staff. A dog friendly Inn. As the rooms were adapted from original old building the stairs were narrow and quite steep. Although clean and tidy the room needed some maintenance. The toilet door was coming away from the hinges therefore hard to close and the towel rail was hanging off the wall.

The room was clean and tidy.

I was concerned when I arrived about being above a pub, due to perceived noise levels. Once in the room, I didn't heard a sound from outside.

I was pleasantly surprised to find, in the room, a mini fridge with OJ and milk and some small boxes of cereal.

Not expecting any breakfast service, this made for a better and more relaxed start to the morning.
