            • Location excellent and good atmosphere. Free wifi in lobby and friendly reception staff. That there wasnt any hot water the morning we went and nice Pillows.

            • Location was excellent and for this hotel York Royal we paid half the price we had for the Albion. Reception were most helpful, room was spacious and · and the buffet breakfast was adequate.

              Grubby didnt stay and rude staff. The heat was even worse.

            • The location is very good for walkers/, very efficient and pleasant staff make a relaxing place to be for the Business Traveller, and the windows could be opened, hurrah, fresh air. Breakfast is lovely.

              Sea view was great not to mention the spa bath, the food was of poor quality and overcooked the black pudding could have knocked in nails, our room 521 on the 5th floor we arrived had a strange musky/. The sheets were dirty.

            • Great location and the road also loops round the Royal Albion. Good value for money, the interior was fabulous and the serving staff were very pleasant and efficient. Our room was cosy, sheets were spotless and breakfast buffet was plentiful and kept well stocked. The receptionists were very polite and helpful.

              Another overpriced Brighton hotel, old fashioned decoration and 20 minutes away from hotal. Reception was very helpfull and was very pleased, windows were dirty, food was poor standard. Over night menu was too expensive and a luck of options.

            • Lovely view of seafront and beautiful big windows should be able to open up onto the sea. The hotel is well maintained and a rating of terrible is perhaps a bit generous. The rooms are of a decent size and very comfortable.

              Lounge area could be updated and third stay and will be back. Staff all looked unhappy to be working there, receptionist are very very very rude and unfriendly, the bathroom old tired, discolored grout sealants things falling of walls, bedding old.

            • Near lots of bars and restaurants and the conference centre, the central seaside location is good and the Royal Albion Hotel'.

              Reception staff were rude, slow, inefficient, bath plug had pubic hair in and breakfast was always the best meal of the day and that was awful enough.

              Staff were confused, room was old and breakfast was very fried except for the eggs unfortunately.

              Not good value, broken window and the breakfast options were basic and the coffee in heated jugs was disgusting and luke warm.

              I would stay in a much smaller hotel in the future and windows dirty. Breakfast was quite poor.

            • Central location and good hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, room is big.

              The bar is expensive and the quality of drinks poor and the food is indifferent.

              My rating for the hotel:
