What a lovely evening, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the band were excellent, Couldn't have been a better start to 2019. In particular Molly and Dean are worth a mention for being so attentive.

Lovely, comfortable and friendly. The hotel looks out over the promenade and the sea, perfect for stepping out. Very welcoming reception. Seaview room excellent, food good and copious. Best thing is friendly service from everyone, thank you.😊

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.
