We paid extra for a room with a view and found men with drills practically in the bedroom. No apology was made by the hotel and they did not offer a reduction. We were not warned that this was going on.

We received a very friendly welcome at the front desk and our room was ready even though we had arrived three hours before stated check in time. Our room was on the second floor, facing the road. However it was quiet. The room was small - partly...

Stayed here a few times. Staff are lovely, always helpful and polite etc. Some rooms are looking a bit tired and double beds are a bit dated as most hotels have kings or queens now. Bed also not that comfortable. Some of the cooked breakfast was overlooked and in the past it's always been wonderful so slightly disappointed thus time.

Stayed here for a long weekend in off season (late winter). Had a front room with fantastic sea views (#28) which was very quiet, but might be noiser in summer as it's right by a path to the seafront. Our double room was clean and nicely decorated. The bed wasn't that comfortable but I've found this a common problem when...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Escape from the everyday and step into a beautiful Kentish seaside retreat. Standing proudly on the Broadstairs seafront since 1776 and a former residence of Charles Dickens, The Royal Albion offers much more than your average seaside experience. Steeped in history but featuring a 21st century approach to comfort, enjoyment and relaxation. With its elegant literary heritage, fresh sea air and awe-inspiring views, The Royal Albion creates an atmosphere that makes it the ideal place to unwind, rejuvenate and take time out. The Royal Albion has 21 elegant and spacious bedrooms to choose from. Whether you are looking out over the stunning Kentish coastline or the historic town of Broadstairs, the views are stunning. All the rooms are designed to ensure your break in this seaside destination is one to remember. When it comes to dining, you'll be spoilt for choice too. Enjoy freshly ground coffee and home-baked pastries throughout the day in Ballard's coffee lounge, and delicious dishes made using only the best locally sourced ingredients in the main bar featuring a large terrace and landscaped garden whilst enjoying commanding views across Viking Bay. For a more intimate dining experience, the a la carte restaurant with beautiful sea views, is the perfect place. With a menu based on the finest seasonal ingredients and freshly caught seafood, you can be assured of a dining experience to remember. The Royal Albion is in the ideal location from which explore the very best that the Kentish coast has to offer. Wander the beaches and clear the cobwebs just as Dickens did over 170 years ago, or simply take time out to appreciate your well-earned break. ... more   less
