My partner and I came to Napier for a birthday celebration in Ahuriri so Albatross motel was a perfect location. We were greeted with a warm smile upon arrival and check in was super easy, she (sorry I didn't get names!) even came out to show us our room and where to park. Our room was good size with everything...

Stayed at the Albatross Motel in Napier overnight en route for the East Cape. Good basic, clean units with no bells or whistles but a stones throw from the beach and a short drive or walk to the West Quay bars and restaurants (best part of Napier!). An excellent accommodation option for dog-nuts (like us) who like to take their...

Room with dark carpet, bed so and so, clean room, weird fixes like shower room facing toilet and only curtain in between, wash sink in corner and mirror not facing user, staff friendly but asked us not to write bad reviews in here but straight to their e-mail.

We really enjoyed our stay because the motel is comfortable for us and also well suited to our 2 quiet older dogs. The room stayed cool even though the weather was not so the dogs were safe being left there during the day when we needed to go places without them. The reserve across the road has a dog exercise...

Stayed for 2 nights and had a good stay in the reasonable sized room, with all you need.Great upstairs decking area to admire the views over the lagoon and a pool/ tub available to relax in. You need a car to get into town, but a small selection of shops within walking distance to the rear of the hotel. Only...

Thank you for your comments. Trust you were not too sore after the event. Yes the spa was very popular that day, relaxing sore muscles I guess. Hope to see you back next year.
