The first time I stayed here (about 3years ago) I arrived late (about 7pm) and they gave me a really good rate ($90 per night). I travel to palmerston nth approx. 2-3 times per year and each time I stay the rate is the same. The last two times I have received a free upgrade to a room with separate... More

We had the misfortune to stay here for a school sporting week. The first walk in the door when it was dusk showed no light bulbs going in the kitchen, none going in the (dangerous?) spiral staircase and no center light bulb in the bedroom. The gentleman in the office, who was covering for the owner who had gone away,... More

I am devastated to receive this review as I believe that we are a very good option for sporting teams. We provide barrels for hot and colds if needed, team uniform washing and I thought all (but clearly not) teams appreciate the set-up of the rooms. We have extra dishes and cooking gear at reception to be used on request.... More

Greeted by a very friendly lady at reception and upgraded to a spa suite. She was making shortbread and gave us some when it was cooked. Huge room and huge bed. Free wifi which was a real bonus and a free newspaper. Plenty of pillows on the bed. After a spa in the evening we collapsed into bed and slept... More

Very disappointed this was meant to be an executive suite not a budget one......the sofa bed was very uncomfortable with only two sheets and a wool blanket which had obviously shrunk in the wash!! extra bedding in the blanket box comprised of one pillow with a stained pillow protector and duvet of sorts. The extra bed (minus a wheel)came ready... More

Very nice from the outside....poorly cleaned. Stains on sheets and in coffee cups...wall patches 3 feet in diameter not painted, bathroom very dirty as was the pool and laundry areas. Very dated furniture that badly needs replacing. Don't do it!

When I first walked into my room, I thought I had hit the jackpot. Nice big room, King sized bed, large tv.... Then I had a shower, shower head was broken so sprayed everywhere, was in a hurry so felt with it. Then I went out. Got back to the room about 11, jump into bed to find the "king"... More

I brought a deal off grabone for a two night stay in a unit with a private outdoor spa. It was a really spacious unit, the lounge and kitchen were good, had everything we really needed, the bathroom was average, it had a heated towel rail which was great. The bedroom was huge, had a tv and the bed was... More

We had a group of 30+ to accommodate for a sports tournament at the Arena Manawatu and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Many of the rooms open up on each other allowing up to 12 people to be within the same building. Full kitchen facilities in the apartment, including full size fridge was a real bonus... More

Being involved in housing people in rental properties, occasionally we have the need to find them short term accommodation. The Villas have provided a fantastic service and are always happy to go above and beyond what is required. They have comfortable rooms with lots of configurations.
