Real interesting place, must see inside. Oil paintings are stunning and adding the history completes the picture. Very well positioned in town centre with great views over the bay. Sarin went the extra mile to meet our special requests, an excellent host. Breakfast was delicious and his recommendation for a nice curry place spot on.

We spent 2 nights in a room with a private (not on suite) bathroom. Apology to Sarin for the rating, Sarin the manager as described by several other contributors is a smashing chap. He cannot do enough for you, from taking your bags to the room, fixing breakfast, offering you a cup of tea while you sit in the dining... More

A very interesting and unusual place, 5 rooms upstairs in a former bank building and outstanding value for money providing you are willing to accept this is an older property. We stayed in one of the 2 rooms that shared a bathroom. The room was small and quite frankly overfilled with furniture. A bit more thought to the layout and... More

I really don't know why this place gets good reviews, unless it's because of the wonderful Cambodian manager, who is an absolute gem. Nothing is too much trouble for him, he's cheerful and helpful, a real treasure for the owners - I hope they value him. But the hotel - inside it's ratty - cramped, crowded with cameras, very few...

This guest house is such an enjoyable place to stay. The owners and staff are excellent at making your stay the best it possibly could be.

The complimentary bottle of wine, free access to port, a delicious cooked breakfast and some helpful tourist-related advice from the manager, Sarin, was only part of the appeal. The floor to ceiling artwork reproductions and the collection of old cameras gave a decidedly quirky flavour to the lovely old building. Its location near the UWA Albany campus and good restaurants... More

This was a great experience. The basics are all there : comfy beds, electric blankets. Fully furnished room - queen size and single bed. Table and chairs. Sofa. Dressing table. Lots of drawers and hanging space. My room had a small but efficient en suite bathroom. Other rooms have private bathrooms just outside the room door. On top of this... More

Needing two nights in Albany recently, I noted plenty of accommodation choices were available. The Foreshore Guest House attracted me as a very homely B&B style property located most conveniently to the main street (but not noisy), hotels for meals & drinks and a pleasant short walk to the Albany waterside attractions - all very pleasant indeed.. BUT, Kathy and... More
