The manager is very kind,room is very clean and good service. All of us like the motel very much. Near to the city centre and close to beach. The bathroom is very clean. They write " welcome" on the blanket, so sweet. Welcome friends to this motel

My major concern when looking for accommodation for a few nights was to be able to stay somewhere that was not only pet accommodating, but for an active labrador, also to have somewhere very close by where my boisterous dog could be exercised and taken for a run. Across the road is an excellent exercise area, both on-lead and off-lead,... More

Highly recommend albatross. Second time we've stayed there. Rooms are immaculate. All facilities available including a spa and pool and BBQ. Friendly staff and a well looked after motel. Convenient location to the estuary where u can get fish and chips, hire kayaks/bikes and paddle boards or just have a nice dip in the water.

OK just parking not adequate, had to leave vehicle on the road. Room tidy, shower a bit confusing and pressure not that great. Bed was good. TV instructions did not work. Everything else was adequate.

Service by the owners was fantastic. Any questions that were asked were quickly answered and the advice given was spot on. We were able to use the Motel's industrial laundry for the same price as the laundrette machines. Very comfortable and will return if I ever come back to Napier.

Albatros is perfectly located with views at the sea. By car you are within minutes (or a 15 minutes walk) at a location with many nice restaurants - with plenty of parking space!- that overlook Hawkes Bay, Follow the same route along Hawkes Bay and you get at the old city, Albatros is neat and clean. Great value for money.

It was our second stay and we will certainly go back again. Room was very clean and had everything we needed. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Motel is close to restaurants and bars and also close to the airport.

We stayed there with a group of 7 friends. The motel was very clean and tidy, the rooms are good sized and comfortable, and they have ample off street parking. We would definitely stay there again. Very handy to the restaurants and bars along the quay - only a 10-15 minute walk.

The room was clean and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. It was a little noisy being on a mainish road but the lovely staff there supply free ear plugs because they want you to have the best nights rest. For me and my dog, who had had a bad experience at another... More

The hosts were most welcoming but I will not book there again. 2/3 nights when we stayed were noisy and the room was very stuffy and warm making sleep unpleasant - the fan provided only assisted a little - so in the summer - not ideal. Our room was on the higher level close to the communal balcony where people... More
