Stayed at Chy An Albany over the August bank holiday weekend and had a very nice stay.
Good points - very clean, pleasant, friendly staff (helpfully put our own bottle of wine in the fridge for us ready for our picnic), quiet in good location,nice sea view from the public areas and pretty gardens. Good breakfast, items cooked to order as well as the usual hot and cold buffet.
Not so good, well it is a bit old fashioned (though nice white duvets and bedding) and thought that maybe if the dining room was painted white or a less drab colour, this would make a big difference without much outlay. Overall, it provided us with everything we needed and for what we paid (bearing in mind Aug bank hol) it was very good value.
