We live in the area and have used the Albion frequently, was looking forward to the new look as it certainly needed a little spruce up inside. What a disappointment, the character of the bar and eating area looks more like a cafeteria very uncomfortable furniture all packed very close together to pack more in. The gorgeous garden with its...

Well placed hotel,restaurant and bar for views overlooking the bay. A large decked terrace outside with lots of tables ideal for when the weathers good, its a shame the anchored down kite makes such a racket . Good choice of beer. Very close to the beach and high street.

My first ever visit to Broadstairs, and what a lovely quaint place. The beach and harbour was absolutely fantastic, and this hotel has a beautiful view of it! The hotel itself is getting on a bit, full of narrow corridors and steep stairs. Unfortunately my room was over the town centre side, and was very noisy from traffic outside, and...

I didn't stay in the hotel but non residents can go inside the bar/restaurant and have food. It's dog friendly and serves food all day. I had the Mackerel and Beetroot Burger with Sweet Potato Fries. Very good.

I live in the area and frequent (not so often from now on) the Albion at weekends and especially when friends visit. We drink in the bar, had breakfasts & lunches in the lounge, on the balcony and in the beautifully planted garden (I have also stayed overnight a few times). Recently the Albion has had a parttial refurbishment in...

Just love this place. Have eaten and stopped for a drink many times. The staff are brilliant and make you feel welcome. Only just got round to reviewing after many visits. I have also stayed in the hotel. A lovely stay and worth the money. The breakfast was very good. Really good, a little noisy at present with the building...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Escape from the everyday and step into a beautiful Kentish seaside retreat. Standing proudly on the Broadstairs seafront since 1776 and a former residence of Charles Dickens, The Royal Albion offers much more than your average seaside experience. Steeped in history but featuring a 21st century approach to comfort, enjoyment and relaxation. With its elegant literary heritage, fresh sea air and awe-inspiring views, The Royal Albion creates an atmosphere that makes it the ideal place to unwind, rejuvenate and take time out. The Royal Albion has 21 elegant and spacious bedrooms to choose from. Whether you are looking out over the stunning Kentish coastline or the historic town of Broadstairs, the views are stunning. All the rooms are designed to ensure your break in this seaside destination is one to remember. When it comes to dining, you'll be spoilt for choice too. Enjoy freshly ground coffee and home-baked pastries throughout the day in Ballard's coffee lounge, and delicious dishes made using only the best locally sourced ingredients in the main bar featuring a large terrace and landscaped garden whilst enjoying commanding views across Viking Bay. For a more intimate dining experience, the a la carte restaurant with beautiful sea views, is the perfect place. With a menu based on the finest seasonal ingredients and freshly caught seafood, you can be assured of a dining experience to remember. The Royal Albion is in the ideal location from which explore the very best that the Kentish coast has to offer. Wander the beaches and clear the cobwebs just as Dickens did over 170 years ago, or simply take time out to appreciate your well-earned break. ... more   less
