The room was dated, not too much of an issue, but the carpet was dirty. The underneath of the wardrobe was dusty and filthy. The glass table the tv stands on was filthy with ring marks from coffee cups from previous guests. The gaps in the room door were so big I had to put the bed spread over the... More

The hotel is certainly in a premier position for visiting Brighton located as it is only yards from the pier and promenade.The hotel must have been very opulent and quiet in it's heyday but now unfortunately it suffers from being in the middle of a very busy traffic junction and the constant sound of the traffic drove my wife and...

The location of this hotel is great, right opposite the pier. The room we had was large , had new carpets and curtains. Great heating that worked. Clean. A couple of bucket type chairs. The sheets were changed every two days and the towels most days. The restaurant was comfortable with many tables for two, very well looked after and... More

Returned for a 7 night stay - 04/11 November 2016. This could be one of Brighton's Best Hotels with it's fabulous location if it were completely refurbished. However, it's now a great 3 Star Hotel compared with my last visit - July 2015. Booked a package deal through a UK Coach Company absolutely great value for money on a dinner... More

We have stayed at the Royal Albion Hotel previously, and on a subsequent review noted that a few rooms need a little TLC. However, on our recent stay we were pleasantly surprised to find our allocated room had been refurbished. On making enquiries we discovered all rooms had had this same treatment. But, above all this comment we have always... More

Great location on the seafront, but all a bit tired. Very good reception staff, and a bit of a queue to check-in. Our room (101) was very clean, but much of the decor and furniture was tired and damaged. Chandelier damaged with only 1 lampshade. 2 non-compatible single beds clipped together with a non-matching headboard. The bathroom was really quite... More

Disgusting place from the reception to the room. The old guy behind the reception desk is the rudest receptionist I ever met. The room was totally depressing, dark cold very old style and stink from chemicals. Don't waste your money here!!!!!!

Needs updating, room we stayed in (basement room) had no heating and needed a serious overhaul in terms of the furnishings. The floors were dirty and parts of the bathroom were missing. The location is great though and this brings the hotel up 1-2 stars. Would only visit again if everywhere else was booked and would ask for a room... More
