This hotel is awful. From the thread bare carpet, to peeling wallpaper and damp on the walls, its a disgrace. And this is just the reception area! The rooms are even worse. The bathroom was so disgusting I couldn't bring myself to have a shower! Even breakfast was a problem, queues (Why I've no idea) out the door. I gave...

Myself and my partner were unfortunate enough to stay here over the past weekend. We picked the hotel as it has a great location next to the pier, the nightlife and the shops. However, that's all this hotel has going for it. Upon arrival we were greeted unenthusiastically by the foreign receptionist who first couldn't find our booking, then once...

Our room was in a state, clearly suffered from previous water damage and in considerate previous guests. However one call and 5 minutes later we were re housed in a fab room by a fab manager, Mohammed. The building is old and with that comes some issues. If you are not prepared to understand that, may I suggest you go...

This really is a hotel to avoid. It's desperately in need of modernisation. Our room had a sea view but was above the Bar Rogue which bashed out incredibly music until 2pm. Curtains wouldn't close properly and drafts could be felt through the window. The TV was very dated with very limited TV channels (eg no BBC3, BBC4). The corridors...

So, here is one not-so-negative review from me. This hotel from the outside looks stunning but when you enter inside, you will immediately realise how dated the interiors of the hotel look. Some people complained about the dirtiness of the hotel but for me the hotel and my room looked clean throughout. Maybe they sorted the issue out. The staff...

From the outside this hotel looks great and the location is excellent but the hotel was a total disappointment ! The decor was very shabby and tired looking. We had booked into a standard double room with a view of the sea front which was nice, but as it was raining heavily the water had got in through the window...

Another bad review for Royal Albion and another disappointed guest. This supposed to be 3 star hotel however it should be degraded to 1. We came here on the New Year’s Eve. We have booked this hotel via one of the hotel booking websites. We rang the hotel to inform that we need late check it. We have checked in...

The big positive of this hotel is it's location it is located right on the seas front by the pier which gives easy access to the town centre, the lanes and also Kemp Town. Sadly though the hotel itself has seen better days. Obviously it is an old building but it seems the current owners have no interest in not...
