My husband and I had a very pleasant stay here for 1 night. It is across the road from the estuary-that means walks and seabirds- and 1 block from the shops and the ocean with a lovely view of the bay. It is also on the way into town. It was warm and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there.... More

Thank you very much for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the WiFi, we generally give a default voucher of100mb which lasts for 24 hours, as this is usually sufficient for most people but happily print off a voucher for each 24 hours or can print of a larger amount if that is required, we do not...

On the way to Wellington, we stayed for a couple of nights in this motel along the road to Napier. We were nicely surprised by the quality of the accommodation which is of very good value for the price and the owner is very friendly. We had a very pleasant stay.

Nice motel, very clean. Owners were very helpful with ideas of things to do and see and where to buy dinner that night. We were only there overnight, next time I would like to stay longer. Thought it might be a bit noisy being on main road into Napier, but I didn't notice excessive noise.

The owners of this motel are very friendly and super helpful, I took my 5 month pup with me fantastic location as there are good walking tracks just meters from the hotel. The room was very clean and modern, lovely place to stay. Next time in Napier I will be staying here.

Clean and friendly place to stay, very close to main area of Napier. Daily room service and some refreshments provided, which is nice. The fact that it is pet friendly makes it even better since we wanted to take our small dog for a road trip also :) Overall, a great experience for all.

We got a friendly welcome,and were shown to our room with a free bottle of fresh milk and everything explained which is nice when staying at a motel. The room had everything we needed for our one-night stay.

We spent one night as the Albatross Motel and found the accommodation neat and clean. Rather more cramped accommodation than we've previously found in New Zealand but good value for money nevertheless. Friendly staff. The shower somewhat defeated us with its convoluted instructions - perhaps we need a degree in 'shower' so we gave it a miss and made sure... More

Thank you very much for your review. Our deluxe units are our most spacious but still great value. the califont shower system can confuse some,[ easy when you know how] but they have great pressure and will never run out of hot water, so anyone can have a really long shower More
