Easy walk to the Octagon, and good restaurants close by. Very clean and comfortable, and a real effort had been made to create an "olde worlds" feel in the breakfast room. However, to reach our downstairs bedroom necessitated a walk past a clutter of laundry and piles of boxes, and as the plumbing was extremely noisy, the lightbulb above the...

Very comfortable clean rooms. Lovely home made muffins at breakfast. Good location within easy walking distance of city centre and the Botanic gardens. Landlady (Glynnis) very helpful. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We had a basic twin bed room which was very comfortable but rather a small room (with a small bathroom). There was nowhere to put our cases except on the floor. The lighting was dull and the TV only received one channel (due to a fault). The bed was comfortable though and the shower was good. There is a comfortable...

We stayed in a back room which was very spacious and quiet. Fantastic host who was very helpful. There was some noise from the room above; floorboards and plumbing noise. However, these are some of the quirks of a character property :-)

Arrived late at night and unannounced on a Friday night after failing to organise accommodation before hand. Found a very clean, comfortable, homely and affordable place with Albatross Inn B+B. The owner was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating with all aspect of our stay. Thoroughly enjoyed our nights stay and would recommend to anyone passing through.

Varied size rooms - compact (limited space beside bed for luggage no sitting space) to very generous, varied bathroom appointment. Friendly host, good continental beakfast, daily room service, washing by host no user facilities, tired facilities. Limits to parking. 20 min walk to cbd / octagon, some food outlets closer, close to gardens and parks.

Beds were comfortable, but the overall facility could use updating. The desk was largely unoccupied, but a phone was available to contact the manager. Parking was limited. The stay was overall fine. The location is at the near end of town from Christchurch, but the walk to most of the attractions was only a 15 minute walk.

Interesting place, with a deliberate old fashioned air to it (think floral cups and saucers and a marble topped sideboard which reminded me of my childhood home!). Comfortable bed and spotlessly clean. Freshly baked muffins served at breakfast. We had to leave early, and were left things for breakfast to help ourselves. Not the place to stay if you want...

The setting of the Albatross took me back to Scotland and into the 19th century. I loved the experience! It was very authentic, with gorgeous molded ceilings, lovely fireplaces and colored glass windows. The attention we received was first class and the breakfast including freshly baked bead, muffins and local honey were a great start of the day. If you...

Nice old fashioned house, living room and breakfast room downstairs. Very nice owner lady! Bedroom and bathroom small. Good breakfast with cereals, juice, fresh fruit salad, cheese, homemade bread and delicious muffins, jam. Furnished old fashioned. Not too far to the city.
