The Royal Albion is a beautifully situated hotel in Broadstairs with wonderful, unobstructed views of the beach and sea. You cannot fault it there and the staff are friendly and competent enough but there were a few moments which made this a good hotel but not a great hotel. They seemed to lose people bills a lot at reception. Perhaps...

Dropped in for lunch whilst strolling along Broadstairs sea front. A chilly winters day so really pleased they allow dogs in doors. Fantastic drinks, very pleasant service, superb food, brilliant view of the sea front. Had a great break, will stay in the hotel next time we are in the area, that's looks as nice as the restaurant.

Broadstairs is like the auntie to the naught kids of Margate and Ramsgate. You still get the seaside, lots of restaurants and coffee/tea places but you don't get the brash bars, fish'n'chip shops, amusement arcades, nightclubs or loud noise. And right in the middle is the Royal Albion. Yes it's a pub chain hotel but it has charm and history...

Met up with a fairly large group of new acquaintances for what turned out to be a pleasant, relaxed and good value breakfast. Menu choice was reasonable as were the prices and service was pretty quick - think we got there just before the "rush" it was a busy Saturday service for people dropping in, let alone the residents that...

Visited 20/1/17 Had not heard of this restaurants before but whilst walking by had seen the menu and that you'd could see the sea. Thought we would give it a try. The restaurant is large, well appointed and airy, but you do not feel crammed in. The view of the sea is excellent. Food is ordered at the bar. Cutlery...

Lunch at the Royal Albion in Broadstairs. Busy, ambient restaurant and bar-food service order by table number and pay at the bar. Generous crisp beer-battered Cod, good chips and a tasty pea puree plus Tartare sauce for my wife who was very pleased with her meal. I had an excellent but smallish Skate-wing perfectly cooked (not battered) new potatoes which...

Stayed here for a winter break, hotel was nice a busy giving a nice atmosphere, as some costal resorts & hotels can be a bit bleak, certainly not the case here. Lovely room overlooking Viking Bay, nice & clean, very warm & nice big bed. My only criticism would be that the bed was too hard for me, but that's...

Good hotel right on the sea front. Lovely rooms lucky to have sea facing room each time once with balcony. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast very good. Lunch is quite pricey. Good roomy bar comfortable seating. Good sea views.

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
