we stayed for a weekend as part of a group and enjoyed that all the back doors of our rooms opened up to a conecting patio area, this was very handy whilst rushing in and out of one anothers rooms to get ready for the wedding.

I had an awsum stay at the Albatross Motel. Arrived to a wonderful welcome. Unpacked and had a swim as it was a very hot day - the pool was lovely and clean :) even though the motel was fully booked there was hardly any noise from other guests. The rooms are very sound proof and very clean. I had a wonderful sleep both nights. Thanks for an great stay.

My children and I had a 2 night stay here and found the Managers to be friendly and helpful. The map given to me on check in was handy and stopped me getting as lost as I had been getting trying to find my way by memory! The unit was really clean, the beds comfortable and endless hot showers. For a full motel, pretty quiet and there are great fish n chips around the corner - ask at the desk :-)

We had a lovely 3 night stay at The Albatross. Rooms were clean, housekeeping was excellent. Managers were very helpful. We thought it was value for money. Good facilities for our use with the pool & spa. We will definitely be staying again when next in Napier.

We had a nice stay with our dog Milo, the room was clean & tidy with a good shower...having a table & chairs outside our room was great...
Being a hot summer a ceiling fan would have been great...

I stopped in randomly during after a long drive, the place was nice and tidy, big TV with lots of SKY channels. Car parked right outside of the room I was in. I was very happy and would likely stay there the next time I need a motel in Napier ^_^
