Came over to do some work and stayed here. We have been before just after the original lockdown period. Very professionally run and all staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was of a very good standard and set in wonderful grounds. Looking forward for the return!!

We were well looked after in this lovely hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was enormous. Excellent breakfast and friendly and efficient service throughout. Will be looking to book again next time we visit the island.

We stayed a Saturday night plus a late check out on the Sunday, super hotel, dog friendly and very comfortable. This hotel has had a new owner for about a year now and the decor and upgrades in progress are lovely. Our dog friendly room/suite was perfect, very well found and equipped. The breakfast was specially set up for us in the lounge to allow our pooch to join us, very nice touch and the breakfast was great, proper ! Very impressed all round and most importantly, all the staff, either front of house or service were super friendly and obliging. Our Granddaughter had a fine time, loving the garden and grounds which are extensive and very well kept. Definitely on our radar now for a sequel later in the year. Many Thanks.

We attended Murder mystery function last night and stayed overnight. Fab deal through Price is Wght. It was such a fun evening. Run by Caught Red Handed it was beautifully put together. The hotel is stunning. Elegant total class with bathrooms to die for. The food was good with brilliant breakfast this morning. If I had house big enough I would decorate and furnish it in exactly the same way! The hotel staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and the rooms are spotless and we had THE best night's sleep. We will definitely be back

Went for afternoon tea with a large group. There was no drama, everything went smoothly and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Would definitely recommend it. The food was delicious. Thanks to Rebecca, Anthony and Chris who were great.

We stayed for one night at this hotel.We were allocated an upstairs front facing room and while the decor and furnishings were lovely.it was very cold and draughty.The road was noisy and a volume of traffic would pass by each time a boat came in.The bathroom was very big and had a bath and large shower with plenty of hot water.The bed was comfortable.But the TV was very small. We thought the breakfast was overpriced for what you received.overall we were disappointed with our stay.

We went to Albert cottage last night for dinner and wow what a dinner. The food was absolutely fantastic I think the most fussy of diners would not be able to find fault. It really is lovely food and would highly recommend. The waitress was as excellent as the food she served 10/10 Thank you

Albert Cottage Christmas Party Night with friends & family. Venue and service excellent, sadly the food was dreadful. Starter was over warm, large slab of pate, with 2 very small pieces of melba toast. Turkey Christmas dinner was served with raw pigs in blankets and tiny veg portion with 1 potato. The chocolate brownie for desert was a sawdust dry sponge with large undissolved lumps of cocoa powder, totally inedible. Wish we had not paid a small fortune for such crap, felt quite embarrassed as the venue was my idea. The one saving grace was the DJ, played an excellent mix of music from the 70s through to the 90s, the dance floor was packed all evening, well done Crabbies Disco 👍👍. Went home hungry and fed up with what was suppose to be a great party night with tasty food. Will never eat at Albert Cottage again 😔

We visited Albert Cottage twice this week. One for dinner with family and again for a murder mystery evening, dinner and overnight stay. It was really excellent both times. The meals are great, breakfast was relaxed and food good. The room was a suite and was stunning. I highly recommend this venue. And we’ll be back!
