We stayed in a downstairs studio style room.
It was very neat, clean and useful. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom facilities, although not fancy, were fine.
However, avoid a room with a connecting door. We had one of those and that paired with an inconsiderate older couple next door who watched TV / listened to radio almost 24 hours a day, was decidedly irritating. Ear plugs were very useful at night.
Plenty of parking and a short drive into Napier's city centre and the surrounding attractions.
Good for a short stay on a self-drive holiday.

Thank you very much for your review and sorry if the next door guests were not too considerate. Some people are a little hard of hearing though and turn the TV's up. We have them governed so the maximum is not too loud but the catch is to allow them to go up enough for hard of hearing people. Luckily ther are only a few interconnecting rooms.

We arrived very late of which the hosts new and they had prepared information ready for us so we could go to our unit. The unit was the best we have stayed in. it was an excellent room and amazing hosts. I highly recommend you stay at the Albatross Motel any time you are near or in Napier. IT is handy to many attractions in the area. Also it is a very quiet area and easily accessible with good parking provided. Enjoy your stay. Owen and Jennifer Mounsey NZ

Room Tip: Ask your hosts they will glady advise you the best fro you and your need.

Very neat and tidy. Enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The only issue is to do with health and safety. The floor right outside the bathroom is very slippery when wet, as it would after shower. Almost slipped a couple of times and decided to lay a towel over it.

Room Tip: Parking right in front of the ground floor units.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for reviewing us. Tiled floors can be slippery when wet , so we have had them all treated with an anti slip treatment and certified as safe, but even this treatment cannot be 100% as soap use etc and type of shoes worn can still still influence the slip factor. We have further reduced the likelihood of slips by taking away soap cakes and replacing with liquid soap dispensers which is much better.

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.
