This establishment was once a great place I am sure, but management seems to have lost interest. A Five Star grading is displayed outside the front door, but I don't think this place has been graded for many years.

The Albatross Hotel has great potential with a grand property, nice patio and pool area plus large well fitted rooms. Unfortunately that is where it stops. You are on your own at this hotel with little service and assistance from the the Staff. You certainly are not made to feel very welcome. The service and cost of the stay are... More
