This has got to be the worst hotel I have stayed in. At £125 a night for a single room it's daylight robbery. It's dirty and very tatty. There is paint peeling and damp patches everywhere. The lounge sofas are worn. Breakfast was abysmal. Shocking

This hotel is like a horror show. Plaster hanging off the ceiling, dirty carpets, grotty chairs, and that's just the common areas. The rooms are poor as well... The worst bit being discovering the filthy towel after I showered. It's beyond repair. Just knock it down and start again. Avoid!

Ok if its a bargain i suppose, and the location is perfect, right by the seafront and...

There is nowt royal about it but its good value for anybody wanting to stay right by the pier on a modest budget! Rooms were quiet and cosy enough but could really do with a little updating though...consider somewhere more expensive if your looking for a romantic night!

Room was filthy and cold. Vomit stains on bathroom walls and door. Had to use all blankets in the room to try and keep warm. Rugby club party took over the hotel and the party goers were running around the corridors all night and tried to get in our room. Public areas a mess. Tired old hotel dirty soft furnishings....

I was originally booked into the Jurys Inn but when I arrived the tour operator I had booked through had gone bust. As I was due to do the marathon I needed a hotel in a hurry so paid a ridiculous price to stay at the Royal Albion. It is well located but that is the only plus. Our room...

In one word yes. Do not attempt to come here, it reminds me of the Overlook Hotel from the Shining. It is the 21st century right? Apart from the Italian school students and the odd couple, this place should be condemned. The food, rooms are so poor!

I have stayed here before but not for a number of years, how sad this hotel is falling apart, it needs a lot of money spent on her, our room needed a new en suite, the curtains had ever coffee or blood up them. The walls needed painting and the tv signal was so bad I gave up watching it....
