Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

CIRCA is the only pace to stay in Albury. The location is the centre of town. With on site complimentary parking what more do you want. The decor is incredible and well worth a visit. The breakfast is absolutely delicious with the best fruit compote and croissants I have ever tasted The service is great with welcome drinks complimentary bar fridge and restaurant booking service

We visited during our sea/ tree change, so it was just an overnight, sadly. Though plenty to do in the area, including within walking distance, revitalised river walk included. Conveniently located between Sydney’s Inner West and Geelong Spirit of Tasmania ferry service, almost a Surry Hills on the border of NSW and VIC. Highly personalised service, with a H O S T (thank you) reminiscent of smaller boutique properties, absolute attention to detail, taking the time to chat about experiences sought in the area and so on, knowledgeable about dining options, suggestions given. Got the Warhol. In transformation post-Covid pandemic with more spa treatment rooms used differently. Art and books (though I/ we would probably have set aside some of outside pavement/ ground floor for a coffee house/ may be wine bar/ deli/ special tastings zone). Breakfast absolutely worldclass. Out of all our/ my long term fav this one, Circa 1928, really stands out. Old bank building leased for extended period, apparently.

Excellent experience from when we first walked in and booked our massage/facial package. The music, atmosphere, aroma’s were perfect for relaxation. No outside street noise to distract you. It was a totally immersive experience. Thank you to the hosts

Fun/interesting decor mixing Indonesian vibe with Aussie art. Comfortable and lovely big copper bath. Very good attentive service and spacious room. Nice but limited breakfast. Good location. Overpriced.

Hello Jane P, Thank you for taking the time to write your 2 separate reviews on your stay with us. Good to hear that you thought our breakfast was "nice". But disappointed to hear that you thought our selection of freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly baked by us just minutes before serving croissants with butter and 2 types of jams, muesli, greek yogurt and 5 fresh fruits, coffee or a selection of 20 types of leaf tea was limited. Good also to see that you liked the lovely big copper bath and that you appreciated the extra space in the Warhol Suite which we had pleasure in providing as a complimentary upgrade to you and Michael. In regard to being overpriced, we believe that with the "good attentive service" that you mentioned, complimentary mini bar of a full bottle of wine of your choice, beers, soft drinks, chocolates, chips and snacks, nespresso coffee and 4 types of herbal teas in the room, complimentary pre dinner drinks at the bar, welcome beverages, free car parking (with free EV charging if required), 11am checkouts, evening turndown including your selection of muscat or cherry juice, porter service and complimentary wi-fi do in fact represent exceptional value, especially in an economic climate where we are experiencing cost increases daily. Thankyou for being our guest here at CIRCA 1928. Kevin

Very interesting and comfortable furniture. Challenging at first but we stayed for three days and we enjoyed it more and more as time passed. The room included excellent complimentary tea and coffee and chocolates and other snacks. The breakfast was excellent and was delivered to our suite by our most helpful host Kevin . The room was cleaned spotlessly and fresh towels etc provided each day. We had the Bo Diddly suite. Next time we will choose the Andy Warhol suite.

Hello Kirsten, Thankyou for being a guest at our lovely Day Spa, together with Jodi. Our spa staff are amazing, and we are so proud of the way that they go above and beyond the practical aspects of massage and facial and with their touch, provide the intangible elements of care and wellness. We look forward to welcoming you again, the next time you are looking for a day of pampering.

This boutique Hotel is absolutely superb, we walked in the front door & were warmly greeted with drinks & the art a gallery in the foyer is stunning. The owners, Ririn & Kevin went above & beyond. Our room “The Warhol” was unique, spotless, every detail thought of including night caps, breakfast was great & beautifully presented, nothing is too much trouble here. We will most definitely be back.

My husband booked this stay and I just went knowing that most of the time he chooses well. Initially I was a little unsure as it is not your normal four wall sterile looking hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised. We were greeted outside and shown where to park, offered a welcome drink and walked to our room where we had a full run down of everything within the room and anything we needed out. We had a number that we could call 24 hours a day if needed and we were told to please ask if we needed anything. The room was something we had never had before, it had history, good character, extremely roomy and exceptionally clean and we are picky in this area. The Circa 1928 a boutique hotel is seriously amazing with fantastic service. We will definitely return.

Hello theresa o, I love your description of "seriously amazing and fantastic service". I was often described as a serious young man (well over 50 years ago when I started in this industry) and I guess that seriousness has translated into a positive. We take our mission of delivering fantastic service "seriously", and add lots of personality, smiles and genuine warmth to that. Thank you very, very much for the review and most importantly, for being our guest here at CIRCA 1928 Albury.

Our two night stay was the perfect end to our NSW Road Trip. We stayed in the Hart suite which is huge, beautifully furnished and most importantly has a very comfortable bed. There is a stunning bath (which we didn’t use not being as flexible as we once were) with a fabulous stained glass window. Breakfast, served in our room, was very good - freshly squeezed orange juice, beautifully presented fresh fruit plate and lovely pastries, toast and jam. The hotel is well located with off-street parking and walking distance to many restaurants, the shops and cinema. Our welcome drink and chat with Kevin was so welcoming. We were surprised there were vacancies over Easter as staying there is definitely an experience to savour.
