Taking one Grandson (11) and two Granddaughters (9 and 8) on holiday can be an ordeal for 'not quite as fit as we were' Grandparents but, with the right surroundings, it actually becomes a great pleasure. We realised that we had made a wise choice from the moment we saw the location and style of The Albion Hotel. This initial joy was immediately enhanced when we were checked in by the very charming, welcoming and helpful Stephen at Reception (He even showed us to our rooms). The other Receptionists were similarly happy and helpful. Both of the bedrooms, and ensuite bathrooms, were spacious, well equipped, immaculately clean and with masses of storage space. The view of Freshwater Bay, through the windows and from the balconies, was staggering. The Restaurant Staff (especially Agatta) were friendly, efficient and especially thoughtful when it came to keeping the children happy. There were no other children in the Hotel but the other guests, maybe because the children were well behaved (!), were all kind towards and interested in them. The variety of food on offer suited all tastes and was well presented and delicious.
The indoor Swimming Pool and changing rooms are maintained in immaculate condition and Pool towels are available from Reception.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the children did not wish to leave!!! Congratulations to Management and Staff....you have an excellent Hotel.
