Albert Number 6 Motel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here in the "off season" but that was the only down side. The location is perfect - just a few minutes walk to the town centre, the wharf and ferry, restaurants and the beach. Paid $345 for 3 nights which included a cereals and toast breakfast. Staff were happy, friendly and helpful. Accommodation was simple, but clean and comfortable Ideal if you're passing through or wish to stop for a while

We thought it was great value, comfortable, centrally located and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. While the location was central it was quiet. It is only a couple of minutes from the beach in fact you could hear the sea if you were outside on the balcony. A basic continental breakfast was available which was all we needed. Netflix and local TV also available. Would definitely stay at Albert number 6 again.

We stayed here after getting a deal off Dailydo. The room was quite dated and looked in need of a "do up". The double/queen bed was so uncomfortable that we ended up sleeping on the two single beds instead, and staying 1 night out of the 2 we were booked for. The office lady was rude and arrogant when we tried to discuss issues. I'll never stay here again

A basic, simple motel but comfortable and well placed in regards to location. The beach, ferry and shopping centre are minutes walking distance away and they also provide a free continental breakfast. The staff are great and very helpful in regards to local activities. Would be more than happy to stay here again.

We stayed in this brightly coloured hotel for one night and were very happy with our stay! Our room opened directly into the parking lot, and it was a short walk to the ferry which we were taking in the morning to go on a kayaking tour, although it was a bit further to get to restaurants in the center of town, so we just drove. Everything was clean and tidy, and our room fit 4 (2 in a queen bed, 2 on single beds). The queen bed was a little saggy, but other than that we had no complaints. We especially appreciated that the managers let us use the phone in the office to coordinate our kayaking tour.

Stayed 2 nights on business, room was clean & tidy and came with a basic (but free) breakfast. Handy location with an easy walk to shops, cafes & restaurants. Would happily stay again as I will travel regularly to Whitianga for work.

We stayed here as a Base for the Coromandel. It's a good location, just a couple of minutes to the beach and to the ferry across the bay. The staff were fantastically friendly and helpful giving us tips on where to eat, activities in the area and walking routes too. The rooms were clean and spacious, comfy beds and a good shower too. Good for a welcoming stay.

Two friends, this accommodation met our expectations. Our room was clean and functional. The breakfast was basic, but fine with a choice of muesli or cornflakes and wholemeal bread to toast. Even our preferred green tea bags were provided. My two suggestions for improvement are a coffee press and a small table on both sides of the bed. Our experience is that these items are found in only around half the motels we stayed at in NZ. The motel had a good BBQ area with chairs and tables and also a fridge, small kitchen and laundry. It is located a very short walk from, town, the shops and the beach. It offers good value for money.

Travelled from Australia as young couple with 10 month old baby. Despite welcoming and friendly vibe, this is perhaps a place better suited for couples or singles without young children. Pros * Great location * Very friendly staff and overall vibe is welcoming and energetic * Beds very comfortable and we liked the colourful decor * Shower pressure excellent * Good wifi speed * Plenty of parking outside room * Small breakfast pieces provided free in room Cons * Very cramped small room * Wifi limited to 500MB * TV didnt work - spent 30mins manually tuning and still couldn't fix it * No air conditioner, tiny fan wasn't helpful * Ants in bathroom and shower * Inadequate kitchen facilities, no sink or stove - could not fill water bottle or wash our dishes unless we used the tiny bathroom sink. You could use shared stove and dishwashing facilities outside room so its practically a shared kitchen? * Noisy - laundry and bbq facility right next to room 8 Having stayed at more than 5 motels in NZ on our trip, we felt that this place fell short of our expectations for the price unfortunately. At this price, adequate kitchen facilities, unlimited wifi and working TV should be standard. Room was too small for a family. We would value it at $100 per night for the size but payed $140

Nice little motel and very friendly hosts. They gave us good tips for restaurants and things to do. Close to the beach and shops. We can recommend this motel to people who do not need a 5 star accomodation to be happy.
