We spent four days in Napier recently and chose to stay at the Albatross because of its prior good reviews. It lived up to those, and met our expectations. It is an older motel, but provides good facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff, really clean on arrival, moderately well equipped, plenty of hot water, comfortable bed, great pillows, excellent quality... More

From booking in until the time to leave our stay was an enjoyable experience. Units were clean, with lovely comfy beds. Close to local bars and cafe's. The waterfront is great if you want an after dinner stroll.

Have stayed at the Albatross many times. Great location for anyone taking part in the Iron Maori Triathalon events. Friendly and helpful service. Swimming pool and spa fabulous for soaking muscles after the event.Need to book ahead for this excellent accommodation. Rooms modern and extremely clean. Ticks all the boxes.

I stayed at this hotel for Iron Maori. It was reasonably close by (although there are hotels closer if you want less of a walk). Great studio unit. Clean and tidy. Good amenities and there is also a pool.

We booked through the 'pets can come too' website as we have a guide dog pup in training, Albatross were very welcoming and gave us a room on the ground floor so we could excerscise our dog easily. Being close to great pathways and... More

We booked this motel because of its location for an event that we needed to do training for. On arrival the owner was very helpful with telling us about activities etc in the area and then showing us to our room. The room was a fair size for the price and the facilities were at a very good standard. The... More

Would recommend to others and would stay again if ever in Napier. Close to town 5-10 min drive. Bed was a little hard for me and we fogged up the bathroom pretty bad but... More
