Reviewed 23 October 2012

My wife and I have just returned after spending a 3 night break,we found it very clean comfortable and friendly.A very good nights sleep and a plentiful breakfast.The only negatives were no electrical sockets near the mirror for the hair dryer without moving the set of draws,street parking at a minimum even in October.

We didn't book anywhere to stay, we just drove to Cromer and parked on the street and knocked on the door, thankfully she had a family room available for 2 nights. we were slightly apprehensive about what the room would be like as we had no details on the B&B however we shouldn't have worried. we were shown up to our room and were very impressed, it was a spacious room very clean and well decorated. lovely comfortable double bed for us and a comfy single bed for our daughter. the owner quickly made the single bed up whilst we were fetching bags from the car so she didn't have to disturb us later. Bathroom was a good size, very clean. Breakfast was cooked to everyone's liking, full English for us all. very good value for money and if we ever visit Cromer again we will definitely try and book in at the Albury.

My wife and I spend 3 midweek nights here, and found the accomodation to be excellent. We received a warm welcome (with parking assistance provided!), the room was even better, and breakfasts were top-notch. Room facilities were good (en-suite a little small though), and good use made of the space with wardrobe and chest of drawers, side tables etc. The whole place was very clean and smart, with modern and contemporary furnishings and designs - none of the "old-folks-home" style that many B&Bs seem to have! In a nice and bright dining-room you'll need to steel yourself for a large Full English breakfast that is superbly cooked by Vicky herself, or ask for an alternative if you like. Fresh juices, yoghurts, cereals, toast all available too.

The one downside was the parking - as it was high season, day-trippers use the side-roads for free parking, which limits the spaces for residents in these roads - but we managed ok! The town is within easy walking distance - just over 5 mins to the pier and main shopping area. The town has lots of good quality independant shops, along with a few major chains too. Good places to eat are The Garden Street Grill, The Wellington Courtyard restaurant, Bella Vista and Red Lion. If you're going to the Seaside Special evening shows, check them out for pre-show meals at special prices....

We found the place to be excellent value for money, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others - unless you're a fussy and grumpy soul!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back may be less overlooked.

Only booked in for one night-which seems to a problem for some guesthouse owners-but no problem here. Parked right outside(free and very safe on a quite side road), and went into a lovely room. Very clean bedding, very comfortable bed and lovely shower and bathroom. Easy walking distance of Cromer it's ideally situated for a trip to the seaside. Breakfst was of the highest quality-one of the better full english I have ever had. Super hosts and would have no worries in recommending it to anybody.

We had a lovely stay at Albury House last night and we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble right from when we arrived on our bicycles tired and hot. The house is very well presented and the shower was a proper power shower which you don't always get.. However I think the personal welcome and friendly personality of our host was what makes it stand out from other bed and breakfasts. As we had to wait several hours to catch a train back home on the day of departure we were
able to leave our bikes and luggage in the house which made a huge amount of
difference to us. It meant we enjoy Cromer without carrying round heavy bags,
Thank you from Liz and Simon Lambourn

This is the second year running that my wife and I have visited the Albury and once again we were not disappointed. Vicky and her husband Mark made us both very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. We arrived early around lunchtime and our room was ready and waiting for us which was a bonus. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was superb. We will definately be back
