I was fortunate enough to stay in the newly renovated room. I love the new look, all the natural timber benchtops, the subtle palette, and the amazing image, the room was stunning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

The furnishings were old, worn and in need of an upgrade eg taps, shower, chairs. One extra blanket was moth eaten & had holes in it. The wifi was not working properly. When I inquired about it I was told it worked perfectly in the reception area. The in house phone did not work & when asked I was told that it was being upgraded. Our rooms were serviced sometime after 3 in the afternoon and our linen wasn’t changed. On the whole it wasn’t a good experience.

It was excellent value. Very clean and tidy. We often stay in Albany and usually at places that are more expensive than this. It is 40 years since we stayed in this motel. Although the others may have slightly better locations near beaches and so, this one is quite conveniently located and the amenities are more than equal. We may have to do some serious thinking about future visits to Albany
