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

This was a last minute booking as I was unexpectedly in Napier for work for the evening. I was upgraded to a deluxe (?) room, which was unexpected and very nice. There was plenty of room and the suite offered everything I needed and more. Lots of sky TV channels, which made it easier to pass the time. Lovely clean... More

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

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.
