Great room and staff were very welcoming, wasn't very cold but lots of blankets and heater provided for when it does which was a plus. Few minutes walk from eat street which was great. Clothes washing facilities onsite. No limit free wifi (login details provided on arrival). 2 min walk from the beach. Only downside is that you're not in...

Thank you very much for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Yes we are away from the city centre, but Napier being a small city means we are only 5 km from the main street, but only a walk away to the bars and restaurants of the marina and we are one of the lucky ones...

Was adequate for what we needed (just a place to sleep) Room was a little on the small side for 2 adults + kid, but overall it was a place to sleep. Would probably go back there again if I needed a stopover place

Thank you very much for your review. We recommend our family units for those travelling with children, much more space than the standard studio rooms.

Excellent place to stay at a very reasonable rate. Tidy and clean rooms that have everything you need including plenty of Sky channels. Great owners also. Very friendly and obliging and happy to go out of their way to help. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the Hawkes Bay. Matt

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...

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.
