Albatross Motel
Ranked #11 of 46 Hotels in Napier
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 November 2008

We recently stopped at this motel for two nights during our trip to New Zealand. This was definitely one of the nicest places we stopped in (and we stopped in several). The decor was modern, and the unit newly fitted out, with a good kitchen area, and new wetroom. We were pleasantly suprised to find our dinner and breakfast plates had been washed up along side the usual room service when we returned to the room - this is beyond what I would normally expect for such a good price! If we are ever lucky enough to visit NZ again, we would definitely make another stop here.

We didn't have time to use the spa or pool so can't comment on these, and whilst the beach is very close we didn't stop there too long as it was quite cool at the time of our visit. On arrival we were given a map and the owner pointed out suggested places to visit, including two lookout points, and all the nearby wineries which was very helpful. The motel is not within easy walking distance of the centre of Napier, but this suited us fine, and we were told there were some bars and restaurants within walking distance, although we chose to drive into Napier instead.
