Albert Number 6 Motel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed for one night during our New Zealand tour. Very welcoming place, nice staff. Room was very clean and well prepared but a little basic. Ok shower, bed a little hard for our liking, quiet location which is close to an esplanade with bars, food and shops.

Excellent facilities all you need really while they dont have all the luxuries they have all mist of us need. Really friendly and helpful hosts. We really enjoyed staying there and while amenities were basic it certainly fitted our needs. 100% recommend

The motel units were extremely small, had no couch, no dishwashing facilities, no teatowel or dishcloth. I object to washing my cup in handbasin. We were with a group and unbeknown to us were required to "share" the unit with people we did not know. Same for them. No privacy especially when using the bathroom during the night. We will never at at Albert No 6 again.

A standard laid back Motel in a great location near the beach, shops and restaurants. Very friendly staff were helpful in pointing out places to eat around town. The rooms are pretty basic but were clean and comfortable and included a good power shower, fans in rooms, refrigerator, comfy beds and toast, cereals, milk and assorted jams for breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

We had an okay stay here, it was average, perhaps expected little bit more for this price. We stayed in several other motels with better value during our time all over NZ. But still, there was a good bed, well working wifi and a little breakfast provided in the fridge too. Cafe Nina is close and is my best recommendation in the area.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We especially enjoyed the simple provided breakfast and the unlimited use of Netflix on the tv to watch movies after long days of adventures. The location of the motel is also excellent, with access to a beautiful walk along the Esplanade. Only real negative is their being no air con in the rooms. We had to leave the door open to cool the room down and this affected our privacy. Despite that, we would stay here again.

Good price and great value. Hosts are so helpful and answered many questions. Location is excellent to beach and town. Would definitely recommend. Continental breakfast provided was much appreciated and unit was very clean.

Standard motel room, but the service and extras made it. Sam was just lovely and so helpful as I asked him a lot of questions about tours and things we wanted to do. This was the only place we stayed that included a breakfast pack, cereal and bread for toast, which was one of those little extras that made this our favourite place to stay, along with the use of a washing machine that came at the perfect time of our trip. Thank you so much guys.

Very clean. Free wifi. Comfy bed. Lovely hot shower. Washing machine AND drier. Nice wee breakfast inclided in the room. Helpful hosts. Literally 1 minute walking from the beach. It seems popular and now I understand why. I'd stay again.

This was the best accommodating motel we have ever encountered. I booked out the entire motel for friends as I was having a function. The owners were so amazing. Licated nesr the toen and the beach. The beds are super comfy and they even provided a continental breakfast. My guests enjoyed it so much... they're making it an annual stay and call themselves the Motel 6 Crew. No need to look anyway else.
