Royal Albion Hotel
Amazing value for money.
I asked for a room with a nice view and reviewed a beautiful sea view room, instantly put a smile on my face. Friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Just the cleaners constantly kept waking us up early in the morning and laughing behind the door.
Booked single room and got large spacious twin room with sea view.
After that nothing could be a minus. Room was tired and in need of renovation but everything worked and bed comfy.
The Royal Albion hotel is very tired and dated The exterior was being refurbished while we were there but I think it would be a better idea to start inside !!.
The room wasn't particularly clean with an antiquated tv and really shabby bathroom- cracked tiles, rotting door and filthy leaking shower screen !. Miserable receptionist who couldn't do less for you. The breakfast was good and breakfast staff lovely !. No parking at the hotel - £5 for two hours up the road - if you can find a space
Value for Money; But Not at Full Price
My room was at a significantly reduced price considering the late booking (reduced from £95 to £23).
I have to say that at the normal price, it would have been a huge rip-off. There is no way the room was worth anything more than £40-50 per night. But at the reduced price I got, it was definitely value for money. PLUSES: Fantastic location right opposite the pier and amongst the action (although note difficulties with finding cheap parking in the centre - I parked in Lewes Road and walked 10 minutes to the hotel); Friendly and helpful staff; Buffet breakfast with everything you might like to see; Good wifi connection; Generally clean and tidy; Perfectly comfortable bed; Warm in room; Quite quiet considering central location; Hot shower
NEGATIVES: My room was essentially a dungeon (because work was being done on the exterior and I happened to be in the basement, there was no natural light); The hotel clearly just does 'enough' - cheap toilet roll, cheap coffee and tea in room, cheap soap, cheapish/old decor; low quality breakfast items (eg although there was an abundance of breakfast sausages, they were the lowest quality you could find, and the scrambled egg was very milky); Significant rust on the shower handle rail; Quite a cold ensuite bathroom,
Overall I would definitely stay again at the reduced price. But I wouldn't pay more than £45 for the same room. Note however, a room with a sea view on the upper levels may be very different.
Good Service Tired Hotel
Not lot else to say other than the title, staff are nice but a very tired looking hotel with even tireder rooms
Good on a budget
cheap and cheerful, currently in the middle of building works so would not have been happy if i'd paid more than £40
Really horrible, I only stayed after being stranded by a train, never again !.
