Stay With Us

The Albion in Wimborne features ten well-appointed bedrooms, each designed with exquisite attention to detail, and reflecting the history of the inn in its decor based on three themes of Georgian England; Gentility (Jane Austen), Mercantilism (Charles Hall, our founder) and the Sea (Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy).

We have three tiers of bedrooms available to book:

Standard Rooms

A snug, cosy, ground floor bedroom, with some ingenious uses of space; creatively designed to transport you to Dorset’s maritime past to enjoy the hospitality of our most famous seafaring son – Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy (Nelson’s flag captain and captain of the Victory). The bathrooms in these bedrooms have showers only. 

Superior Rooms

A lovely, traditional inn bedroom that conjures up a real sense of Georgian place and time. The rooms are designed to suggest the era’s themes of gentility and mercantilism.

Luxury Rooms

A luxurious, large period bedroom with a deep bathtub that evokes all the pleasures of staying with a rich friend in their beautiful townhouse in the heart of a beautiful Georgian town. A real treat.


All our ten rooms are very different but share some common features:

- Tea and coffee making facilities

- Light reading

- Luxurious  Sealy mattresses

- Free internet access

- Digital TV

- Bluetooth radio

As for contact with the outside world, phones haven’t been put in any rooms, so as to not disturb guests’ peaceful getaways but there is always a landline on reception, should the need arise.



Your breakfast is served at The Olive Branch (only 152 steps from our front door), freshly cooked to order, including an indulgent cold spread of fruits, bread, yoghurts and juices.

Served between 8am and 10am.

Parking is complimentary to all our guests. Each room has its own space and the key attached to your room key will release the bollard allowing you to use the space.

If you go out for the day you may find that our team has raised the bollard to prevent anyone else using your space. If you have more than one car and need alternative parking there is a public car park next door. If you have any problems please just speak to one of our team.

We like to make people's day, so if there's anything we can do for you, just let a member of our team know. If you enjoyed your stay at the 1777., why not tell us about it on TripAdvisor?
