Albatross Motel is slightly out of the city but a couple blocks back off a lovely black sand beach, and very close to the airport and the great restaurants on West Quay!
The rooms are small and older style, with 'classic kiwi' yellow glass sliding door panels, and a stainless steel box shower - but charming for that. Effort has been made to make them comfortable, with good beds, made up with lovely touches, warm blankets, a spare heater etc.
Amenities are a little basic - large generic toiletries in wall-mounted dispensers, and instant coffee - but jug microwave and toaster are provided along with a small fridge.
Road noise was noticeable but not excessive; the in-room fridge was also a little noisy.
Rooms and grounds are scrupulously clean, and well-kept. Staff are friendly and helpful.
I would stay again.More
