The Albertross is just out of town at Westshore, near to the airport. It is a comfortable, well pointed motel with very helpful and friendly staff and good quality free WiFi. On the main road, but it still manages to be quiet

Easy place to stay for a night, reasonably close to bars and restaurant's around on the water front for dinner or lunches. Rooms at the motel quite small but tidy and clean and comfortable. Easy place to park and get access to airport

We stayed here 4N to enjoy the wonderful Hawke's Bay cycling trails. We were warmly welcomed by Nigel and Helen and well looked after during our stay. We can well understand why this motel is popular and regularly receives great reviews. Our Unit was absolutely spotless - thank you to all the cleaners. There is an excellent compendium available with... More

I chose this Motel because the tariff was very reasonable and it had a good Trip Advisor rating. I was not disappointed. With 50 channels of Free SKY TV and free fast wireless broadband it met my needs. Owner was friendly and helpful. I was in a standard studio which was roomy enough. Might be a bit on the cold...

Thank you very much for your review and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

Our room was equipped with 1 queen and 1 single beds and that's what we need. very clean and tidy, we enjoyed making our breakfast and dinner. The... More

We were running late, but the owner waited up for our arrival and made sure we were comfortably installed for the night. Very generous wifi allowance kept our daughters happy and connected with their friends. Full Sky channels to watch, that's when not out enjoying the wonderfully warm Easter weather. The walk to Ahuriri and its restaurants and cafes was... More

Thought I'd thoroughly researched before booking but apparently I goofed. BRING YOUR EARPLUGS to get a good night sleep or else the trucks will keep you awake. Beware of ants if you stay in Room 34. The manager was very helpful in trying to remove the ants but they were crawling everywhere. Minor detail but important: all the faucets are... More

Booked this motel relatively last minute (took the last available room) for a weekend trip to Napier and Hastings to see some friends. Very friendly staff, room was very clean and tidy, bedroom furniture modern and comfortable. The main reason we booked this motel however was because we could take our dog (a greyhound) with us. They were very accommodating,... More
