GREAT accommodations & hosts

5 on November 07, 2016

The facility is spotless & kept to perfection. Very comfortable. Delicious breakfast. Great to sit out front & watch the world walk by. Great to sit out back for quiet sun. Near Joe Coffee, Cafe Heaven, & Boatslip tea dance. The hosts are VERY friendly & willing to give advice about town etc. LOVE this place! Have stayed many times in various rooms. All were great.

What a Guest House should be.

What Anglophile wouldn't want to stay here? An elegant center hall Victorian with distinctive decor and spotless attention to detail. The PAGH will always be on my short list. Parking is provided within a short two block walk.


Great place to stay in the heart of Ptown

Beautiful old Inn right on the main Rd where you want to be. Welcoming owners and great hosts. Only complaint was the bathroom was tiny to the point where it was difficult to use, but having your own bathroom in this area is not always an option. We had a great stay and enjoyed our anniversary wkend. Shelby, the yellow lab was also great and joined us for breakfast each morning


Lovely house, great location!

Beautiful, comfortable guest house right on Commercial Street, with a view of the water and lovely, comfy outdoor seating for watching the world go by. Bob was wonderfully helpful, and his greeting committee Shelby did her job very well. We could have done without the crappy disco beats coming from the Boatslip, but that didn't diminish our enjoyment of the guest house.


Province Town luxury

4.2 on August 22, 2016

Correspondence before our stay with restaurant recommendations etc. was outstanding as was the service we received from both Bob & Steve during our stay This luxury house is perfectly situated with beautiful views to enjoy a sundowner or a cup of coffee in the morning ( & if you're lucky, with gorgeous Shelby sitting next to you)


And enjoyable stay

Thanks to the hospitality of the owners our stay at the guesthouse was quite nice. Centrally located on the main street providing access to shops, restaurants and different venues. I would definitely return to this guest house.


A wonderful vacation spot.

A fantastic guest house that couldn't be more conveniently located. Bob is nothing but delightful and extremely helpful. It was so laid back and welcoming. My husband and I would absolutely recommend it to any who asks.


well done

The Perfect P-Town B&B

4.4 on May 31, 2016

The Prince Albert Guest House (or PAGH, as it refers to itself), may be the perfect P-Town B&B. This is my conclusion after my first visit (with my dog) to the lovely inn, in May, just before the town’s “season” jumped off to its start. Prince Albert’s location is superb – smack on Commercial Street in the West End, in the midst of P-Town’s best shops and restaurants and, of course, gay venues. (PAGH actually is just across the street from the Boatslip and its legendary weekend gay T-dances.) An expansive and very comfortably-furnished front porch, running the inn’s full length, offers lots of couches and chairs for fascinating (and, at times, amusing) people watching as the Commercial Street scene glides by. The inn’s exterior is sparkling bright and charming. Inside, the rooms not only are very comfortable, cleverly using every possible square inch of the predictably tight and irregularly-shaped spaces typical of the old houses that are the bones of P-Town inns, but also are elegantly – even lushly - furnished. The bed is extremely comfortable; oriental-style rugs give the room a luxurious tone; powerful showers and plush bath towels are a delight; lighting is good and wifi is strong. The breakfast is bountiful – juices, fresh fruit, excellent coffee and tea (including cappuccinos and espressos), cereals, muffins, bagels and made-to-order waffles. And, the two innkeepers, Bob and Stephen, not only are welcoming and personable, making (in my observation) every guest seem special, but are constantly at work keeping PAGH looking elegant and cared-for. They are not (as is too often the case with veteran B&B proprietors) tired and blasé hosts who no longer are excited by extending hospitality to guests. Rather, they remain enthusiastic, energetic, smiling, engaging (even bubbly) and a fount of knowledge about P-Town’s restaurants, events, sights and lore.
