We recently stayed five nights at Albion Manor; four in the Rubens room and one in Henry VIII. There really were no bad rooms in the house -- each is different but all are very thoughtfully and thoroughly decorated. Most of the upstairs rooms have nice porches to sit on but the gorgeous gardens have plenty of other spots to sit and enjoy the flowers. There are sitting rooms upstairs and down for congregating as well as all the spots on the porches and in the gardents.
Fernando and Don were perfect hosts -- gracious and helpful while being completely unimposing. Breakfasts were fantastic -- decadent without being completely unhealthy. Each breakfast started with a delicious fruit and yogurt course followed by an elegant main course - eggs with hollandaise one day, a variety of puff pancakes other days. The rooms were meticulously clean and full of Victorian accents and artwork. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were very nice and as fluffy as others have noted. It is in a fabulous central location -- we were able to walk or take harbor ferries everywhere. I was completely and unexpectedly charmed by the inn and its keepers and do not hesitate to recommend it.
