Ground floor studio apartment. Hosts were lovely and helpful. Gave good service and information on area. Room was tidy, clean and came with all expected amenities. Only thing would have been a softer pillow option!

Thank you for taking the time to place a review for us. It is difficult to have pillows that suit all, but we do a have a few different types available if someone wants, softer, harder, bigger, flatter etc.

I was happy to see how all family helps to run this Motel :) It was nice place to stay for one night on our road trip in NZ. We have used laundry room while in there. Good service.
Thank you

Stayed in Studio appartment, all you need in the room, good sized new TV with all the sky channels (not just the usual poor hotel selection), kitchen facilities, small table and chairs, couple tub chairs, desk, room for portacot, good bed. Even though on busyish road car parking and trees are between hotel and road so road noise level fine. Stayed up stairs has view of estury. Staff friendly, nice place to stay for the price.

Nigel and Helen were extremely helpful during our stay at the Albatross Motel. Any query we had about the area, they were more than willing to offer their advice plus some. They even took the time to listen to what we had planned to do and ask us about certain activities later on which made our stay with them a more personable experience. The 'welcome' that was on the blanket when we arrived was a great touch and started our holiday in good spirits!

We recently had a 3 night stay at the Albatross and were very happy with everything. The owners were very helpful from the time we booked up until we departed. It was home away from home even down to a very friendly cat who thought he should spend the night with us! Because the bed was comfortable we slept well and everything was clean and tidy. Thank you Helen and Nigel.
