The people running this place were so friendly. The rooms were clean and the bathroom spotless. The team were helpful in making recommendations for dinner also. It's handy to town - we were able to walk to dinner

Really nice, clean and comfortable motel. The owners are lovely and care really about their customers. First night (after a long work day) there was a delicious brownie waiting for me <3 Honestly, I can only recommend this motel.

A well appointed clean and comfortable motel in a very central position. The owners are extremely friendly and obliging. A great cooked breakfast and a really nice touch was the units heater and lights being put on at not so that the unit was welcoming when i arrived back to it. I will stay again on my next trip to...

Thanks for another amazing stay, we are always made very welcome and they go out of their way to be so accomodating. They also up amazing platters upon request. We have stayed at the hacienda a few times now and will keep going back as they are so friendly. The units are always super clean and the linen smells fresh.

We stayed at the Hacienda for 2 nights in July. Right from our arrival our hosts were so helpful and friendly, offering to carry bags and providing us with a jug of real milk - not the long life variety! We were in Palmerston North to have our car serviced. Suzanne brought us each a piece of delicious home made... More

We needed a last minute booking for 6 weeks for 2 adults and 2 small children. Not an easy ask but the Hacienda came to the rescue!!!! Elwyn and Suzanne were incredibly accommodating and provided brilliant service the entire time. We can't fault them or their team. Rooms are clean, tidy, functional and warm. The motel is very central to... More

In the four years I've been visiting Palmerston North, I've never experienced anything at any other motel in this city that comes near to my stay this week at Hacienda. I've been searching for the perfect place to stay (location, facilities, comfort, friendliness, cleanliness, customer service) and have finally found it. I will never stay anywhere else in Palmerston North.... More

Very polite, cheeful, helpful and professional service from Suzanne and Elwyn Room very clean and well-appointed. They were both very happy to answer questions. Very well-situated motel. We walked everywhere. Heater heated the room well during a very cold spell. A teapot would be nice as the three of us were keen tea drinkers but that is a suggestion not... More
