Albany Foreshore Guest House
Ranked #7 of 17 Albany B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 November 2011

When we stayed, the premises were getting the final finishing touches from the long term owners (Philip & Jenny) who have now set this up as their own guest house. They were wonderfully welcoming, as was Dinend, who is to be the long term manager of the operation.

The rooms (upstairs) have all been redecorated in wonderful taste, and the beds were very comfy. Dinend was very accomodating, and cooked us a lovely breakfast on the 2 mornings we stayed.

We had some advantage I assume in visiting so early in the establishment of this business, however I can't help but think that this will continue to be a great place to stay. We could not have wished for better.

Trish is a most amiable host and if you have the opportunity, go and stay at the Vancouver House. Trish has put a lot of love, without being over the top, into the place. Due to lease problems, she will be closing up soon.

I had the 2 non-ensuites, sharing the same bathroom. I had a peek at the ensuites room and they were very roomy. I would have chosen those rooms had they not been booked out.

The location is excellent, with Dylans On The Terrace (a Trip Advisor recommended café) next door. There is a pub a few metres, with an excellent restaurant. In front of the B&B is the Hanover Bay, with a overhead bridge to the esplanade and concert hall.

The breakfasts were excellent. They were ample and Trish was very generous. You helped yourself to the cereals, fruits, toasts and juices and Trish took orders for the not breakfast.

I found the beds to be very comfortable but the in-room tv was difficult to watch. We could have used the lounge room with the flat screen but other guests were having drinks and it would not have been appropriate. Parking was available at the back of the B&B.

We stayed for one night, Trish was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great. The location is in the middle of the town, close to the pubs, which on weekends can be noisy, but we did not mind. Parking was secure. The building is historic with very high ceilings. The beds were for our taste on the softer side, but comfortable.
