When we arrived, staff were friendly. Pool was very nice and clean with good shelter for the chairs. The bath had sand and hair in it on arrival. Is a bit dated. Rubbish bin in bathroom didn't work. There were no sheets or blanket on the pull out sofa bed. Air conditioning is needed in the rooms. They did have... More

Due to supposed increases in accomodation nationwide, this was the best price for my needs for one night. I have stayed here before. The establishment was clean and tidy, and had all the basic necessities. Free200mb is always a bonus, and a decent sized milk was provided! I love my coffee after a long days drive. This particular trip however,... More

We stayed quite a few places on our roadtrip around New Zealand, and the service offered by the Palm City Motor Inn staff was by far the best we received; happily answering all our questions, calling around and helping us with tour bookings, even driving us to the nearby port for lunch. The room was pleasant also - we had... More

When confirming details, arriving and checking out the service here was very friendly and happy. The room was better than an average motel room, though nothing to rave about. It is definitely the service that puts this above average.

I can only repeat other reviews that this is an outstanding accommodation with great management and staff. The rooms were immaculate, roomy and comfortable. The management handled the provision of 2 rooms at short notice (after our flight was cancelled) and our early morning departure with aplomb - applying corporate rates and inviting us to their Xmas dinner (free food)....

Dean and Helen are super friendly, very hospitable and full of great tips and advice. The rooms are huge, clean and immaculately presented and the Guestaurant caters to all tastes. Thoroughly recommended, must stop here, at least for a night.

Another year of friendly and extra-mile service. We arrived late after check in time and so they left our room open and ready for us. Nothing but friendly service. This is our second year there and we hope to get in early for next years IronMaori in 2015

Wished we were staying longer than a night. Friendly staff at check in. Beautiful smelling clean room. Loved the hand wash, moisturiser etc Parking right outside room was tricky to maneuvre. Swimming pool and spa were also clean and nice. My son enjoyed the pool and park. Thank you so much, we will be back.

My husband and I came across this hotel randomly and were so glad we did. On arrival we met Dean who was just fantastic, our room was nice, spacious. Restaurant on site if you don't feel like like heading out. Free wifi, which was a big bonus as some hotels only give you a small amount. Just great service from... More
