Firstly a big 'Thank You' to all at The Albany Lions for once again making our Dance Weekend stay with you very enjoyable.
The food was lovely as usual and all the staff really friendly and helpful.

We have been attending the Albany Lions Hotel for the last six years with members from our leisure centre in Bromley and for years before that our line dancing instructor has brought her class members here at least three times a year for the last ten years or more. We always find good food, good company and excellent service from the team at The Albany Lions and going back there every year feels like going home. Our visits are always lively and full of laughter but we see other groups arriving who are less 'lively' than us who also return time and time again.

For the past eight years, I have organised a successful and growing playworkers conference in Eastbourne, initially I used the Lions Group for accommodation, for the last three years we have hosted the whole conference at the Albany Lions Hotel and the Mansion Lions Hotel.
I cannot recommend the hotel enough – all the staff ensure our conference runs smoothly and without problems, I am sure  if there was a problem it would be  dealt with quickly and efficiently. I want to give particular praise to Fran who works very closely with our team to make sure all requirements are met.

Hi Francesca, John and I just wanted to say how impressed we were with the service we received at my Aunts Wake last Thursday. The food was delicious, there was a continuous supply of coffee, tea and juice and all the Staff were very courteous. A fitting end to what was a sad day for the close family. Thank you all so much.

Our wedding was a dream come true and we couldn't have done it without the hard work from the team at Boship Lions Hotel.  Our day was amazing with no problems and all fun!

Following our recent event held in the Sussex Room, we would like to thank the team at the Boship Hotel for all their help before and during the event. The room was just right and set up as requested in time for our arrival, equipment was supplied and set up as agreed and the refreshments were served on time. We will definitely be using this venue again for future events.
