We stayed here for the night on 3st Jan '16. On arrival the host was very pleasant. We requested Trim milk and she kindly supplied us with a litre bottle. (Unusual as blue top is generally supplied). After checking in, she met us at our room and gave us a directory of local eateries and suggested a couple within 5... More

The Hacienda Motel is a great place to stay! The hosts, Belynda & Mark, are very friendly & helpful and had some great suggestions on where to go for meals etc. Nothing was too much to ask! The motel is extremely clean & modernised with lovely complimentary toiletries and loads of extras we didn't expect. The motel is also very... More

We had a 2 bedroom apartment that provided a very comfortable experience. Spacious bathroom and full kitchen. What made our stay memorable was the service provided by our hosts. The motel is within walking distance of the town centre and has excellent restaurants close by.

The location is good and friendly service but rooms are tired and dated. Feels a bit cheap and nasty for the price. There are much better motels on offer for similar prices nearby. Beds are comfortable however.

I would be interested in knowing which room you were allocated. My Wife and I have taken over the Hacienda motor lodge over the past few months so we... More

Have stayed in 5 other motels in Palmerston North in the last 18 months, and we were very selective. Hacienda was far superior to all of them, very reasonably priced, and we will be back. Mark and his wife very friendly and helpful and didn't hesitate to offer us a ride to the airport after only a one night stay.... More

An absolutely awesome place to stay. Super friendly owners that really went the extra mile for us. 10/10 for sure. Nice quiet location and close to the city. Rooms are modern and spacious and would recommend this as your first choice if your staying in Palmerston North.

We were book into the Hacienda by my wives work, for the first month of our emigration to New Zealand. The owners did everything possible to make us feel welcome, and gave plenty of essential advice to help us find our feet. The apartment was spacious and kept clean by the staff. Unfortunately we had to move on as they... More

We were in Palmerston North for a national dance comp. The motel was in a perfect location and handy to everywhere in town. Suzzane and Elwyn were fantastic hosts who did everything they could to make our stay comfy and easy. The students had a great time and we will be back next year :)
