We needed somewhere to stay that would allow our dog to be there. The owners were really nice & helpful & more than willing to accommodate our needs. Studio room was small but fine for a single night for 3 people & a dog. Was really quiet & warm. Nice & close to the beach for taking the dog for... More

Stayed at Albatross for a night, with the hope of getting a good nights sleep for a long drive south the next day. The unit had everything we needed but we found that the ceiling creeked everytime the people staying in the room above moved about. Not light sleepers & pretty good at ignoring noise - but unfortunately wasn't unable... More

The room was very clean and quiet, the bed comfortable and the staff was pleasant. Easy entry and exit with parking just outside the door. The location is easy to find and accessible to area attractions and restaurants.

A clean and tidy Motel, partly done up. Comfortable accommodation. However we arrived on a cold night and the distribution of heat in our unit wasn't efficient so it took us a long time to get warm. Very cold tiles in the kitchen and eating areas which didn't help and we needed to wear our shoes which we don't like... More

We drove around north and south islands and picked the Albatross as it looked fine. In fact it was perfect, clean and comfortable. You can walk to most places but I suggest you drive around the docks and park up in the free carparks and stroll around the town centre from there. The owners of the Albatross were extremely helpful... More

Thanks for welcoming me into your motel. it has that luxurious feel of a hotel and is warm and welcoming and on top of that my dogs were able to stay with me. i also really appreciated how every time i called the owner would answer and know me and what the plan was. Really enjoyed our stay.
