    Very clean and tidy facilities, the rooms having been refurbished were very comfortable. Staff were always friendly and helpful. As being a student the free wi-fi was a huge help and was much appreciated. Would recommend to all

    Fabulous

    The location next to the wildlife estuary was excellent.. and the beds very comfortable. The spa was excellent also.

    The shower was very low pressure and heater very noisy.. there were chipped dishes in the cupboard

    The spa pool was hot & the beds were comfortable.

    The motel was a stop-off place for truck drivers some of which started their trucks at 4am! There was a lot of trucks going to the port on a road just a few metres from our door - ear plugs essential! Could have been better finished - T.V. stuck out from corner at head height, electrical cords hanging loose & ill fitting blinds/curtains. The pool was cold but indoors. The oven grill didn't work but the temporary managers let me use the motel kitchen to grill our hot cross buns.

    Excellent value for money! Rooms were a good size, had everything you could possibly need. Fab little compact kitchen! Looked as though it had been newly refurbished and was clean and comfy! We were travelling around the north island and this was one of the best little motels we stayed in! Staff very friendly and keen to share their knowledge of the area. We loved it!

    Fabulous

    Kids enjoyed the spa pool.

    You had a sign up in the bathroom re the tiles but we were very concious of how dangerous the wet tiles were for not only for us as parents but also for our young children. They are an accident waiting to happen.

    Our son left England in August 2010 to work in New Zealand, living in Napier. As he will be in New Zealand for the next few years my wife and I decided to visit him recently, for three weeks.As there was no room to accommodate us in the house he shares with colleagues, we chose to stay at the Albatross because of its proximity. The welcome we received on arrival after the 35 hour journey was very warm and we quickly settled in. Our first four nights of the trip were pre-booked there. Our son gave us the itinerary which involved travelling to other parts of the country which we thoroughly enjoyed. However, we had no hesitation in booking a further six nights at the Albatross whenever we were in the locality throughout the visit. For us it was a very convenient and comfortable place to be based, with friendly, helpful and efficient hosts in Nigel and Helen. Apparently some guests have had problems operating the showers. On arrival the simple procedure was explained and we had no difficulty in following the straightforward printed instructions. But actually, during the time of our stay, they were all being replaced with new, better shower units. The kitchenettes are a good idea - something which we don't often come across in the uk. All in all, the Albatross represents very good value.

    The room was clean and tidy.

    The receptionist/host was a tad imposing, questioning us as to why we booked with Booked.net, they also tried to charge $20 per night for my 10 month old son where it said clearly on the advertisement that under 2 year olds would stay free in existing beds, this was the reason we booked a larger room. The facilities were average, the shower/bathroom was clean however the shower was not in great condition, the shower was broken and would not slide up or down. The staff had also advised they had turned the fridge on when we got to the room we discovered later this was not the case. For the price we will not being staying there again

    Location was good for access to city shopping & restaurants, wineries in the area and highway exiting the city. Room was clean and spacious. Kitchen convenient and bathroom adequate. Overall, a nice place to stay. We stayed for 2 nights from Feb 2-4, 2012.
