A great place to stay. From the very welcoming owner to the lovely appointed accommodation. I would recommend this motel. We have stayed here a few times and it doesn't disappoint. We chose to have breakfast and ti was deliverd right on time and was delicious.

The "Fitz" has become my accommodation of choice in Palmerston North. I have now stayed a total of 11 times over the last 3 years. Rooms are very well appointed with comfortable beds and a basic kitchen (sink, microwave, 2 burner stove and fridge). The bathrooms are outstanding with oversize walk in shower and a large spa tub. The owner/managers... More

Armand and Maria know how to look after their clients, the rooms are well appointed, great facilities and nothing was a problem to them if you had a question or a query about the area. This is our third stay their with them and they have provided the same great standard of service.

My partner and I showed up at 2:30 am looking for a motel in Palmy. The Regency was one of the few with an after hours number, which we rang to be greeted a few minutes later by Maria. She was enormously helpful and very accommodating, considering we woke her up. She arranged a late checkout as well. We were... More

I had a pleasant stay at the Fitzherbert Regency last month for business staying 5 nights. I selected this accommodation as it is handy to access Massey University and I was working out that way--this is the first accommodation on Fitzherbert Avenue as you drive into town from Massey. The room I had was modern enough and well sound-proofed; daily... More

I stayed here often a few years ago when my work took me to Palmy frequently. Coming back now after at least two years I think the motel has improved! It has really good spacious rooms that are spotlessly clean, out of town but very close to the University. All the facilities that you need for one night or an... More

I travel extensively and have a list of preferences when staying at hotels/motels. The Fitz ticks all the boxes. Modern, brightly lit, very clean, well designed, comfortable furniture and bed. Quiet a/c, modern tv across from bed, lots of AC wall outlets in the right places near desk for iPad, laptop, IPhone chargers, plug in iron without having to move... More

We recently stayed here on our way home. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. The bathroom was a great size with a very large walk in shower and spa bath, and plenty of amenities. The owners were super friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

A conference in Palmerston North brought my three colleagues and I to this motel for three nights; first impressions were good, especially with the friendly welcome from the owners, Armand and Maria. The studio rooms were large, modern, with ample space for two people. The bathroom was amazing with a walk- in shower plus spa bath. Most of all, the... More

I've just stayed three nights here while attending a conference and after seeing a colleague's room at another motel and hearing about others' rooms, I think we got the pick of the bunch of the many motels in Palmerston North. The motel is new and spotlessly clean - sometimes if one stays more than one night the cleaning and re-stocking... More
