We were somewhat aimlessly touring New Zealand, in November, and came to Napier, promoted as the Art Deco city. We drove into town, passing many motels, and then went back to the Albatross as it appeared the most attractive. The reception we received was very welcoming, and the room 12 that we were shown, and took, was very comfortable, roomy,... More

We were on a road trip and just needed a comfortable convenient place to stay and it fitted this bill very well. We didn't know the Westshore area at all and initially found it a bit difficult to find as we came in from the south through Napier CBD but coming from the north it would be very easy. We... More

We only stayed one night but will definitely come back. Very enjoyable stay. Enjoyed the bike tracks. The spa was nice after it. Tidy and clean. Recently refurbished. Everything we needed and they accepted our little dog - no problems. Its refreshing to know that motelliers will still accept small dogs knowing that dog owners still take great care when... More

We travel to Napier quite often and the Albatross is my choice as the Estuary across the road is the perfect 5 km running track. It is a flat track/broadwalk that is beautifully peaceful, away from the highways.

We stayed for 3 nights in October 2014. It was very quiet with few other guests. We were basically comfortable. The bed was great. Reasonable amount of space. Free wifi. Owner was very helpful and friendly. My main gripe was the shower. I like a cool shower and found it impossible to set it to my satisfaction. On the recommended... More

Thank you for posting your review. We appreciate the feedback and will make an effort to more fully explain the shower operation. We are glad you enjoyed other aspects of your stay, such as the bed. So important when you are away from home to get a comfortable nights sleep. More

We have stayed in many other hotel/motels up and down the country usually at 2 and 3 times the price and not yet met motelliers so caring and passionate about their vocation. Will definitely not stay anywhere else in Napier.Albatross is the place to stay

We stayed at the Albatross motel for 3 nights. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very clean and tidy. The hosts were really helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again next time were in town. And I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice hotel in Napier. The only down point was the road noise but the hosts offered... More

Thanks for the lovely review. We appreciate it. We are glad you had a great stay with us and look forward to seeing you back again soon. We often worry if the road noise will disturb people and are always pleased to hear that it hasn't been too bad. Earplugs also drown out snoring so the wife tells me! More
