From the moment we walk through the doors it was like home. The staff went out of their way to make us all comfortable. I would like to wish the Albany and staff all the best for the future.
Nothing seems to much for the staff or the manager.
I was made welcome by all staff as I walked through the doors to see my mother in law. My daughter and I were treated with respect from every one, if I had to give stars it would be 5 KEEP THE GREAT WORK GOING GUYS well done.
