Not sure where to start as every aspect of this stay was outstanding. On arrival we were given a great welcome by Suzanne & Elwyn who helped us with our luggage up to our 1st floor accommodation. Before we could really settle into the room Suzanne appeared at the door bearing freshly baked muffins, which were absolutely delicious. The room... More

We were made very welcome on arrival and personally shown to our unit. Unit was very clean, modern and excellent facilities. Quiet area with no road noise and close proximity to the CBD. Will definitely stay again when we visit the area.

I stayed at the Hacienda while in Palmy on business, and mentioned while checking in I had forgotten my toothpaste. By the time i returned there was a fresh tube in my room. The room was great and i really appreciated the power plugs located by the bed, a boon for late night phone charging and email. Many thanks Suzanne... More

We stayed at this hotel and the owners did not mention there was construction going on next door and it would wake us up early. We might have had a pleasant stay if there wasn't a digger going at 7am and builders at 8am The owner didn't seem too worried it was happening but we did.

We definitely sympathise with what you are saying in regards to the demolition noise from the property next door. However, that work is now completed. We do our utmost to make our guests stay a pleasant one, but sometimes something's are just out of our control, especially on neighbouring property's. More

Lovely units, very friendly hosts. Units are clean and in a great location. Will stay again. We book for a very busy weekend in Palmerston North and Elwyn and Suzanne keep in regular contact through the year.

The Hacienda is a great find for us. We were in Palmerston North for a show and kind of picked the place at random. We hit it right on! Suzanne was really welcoming and helped us get orientated to the town as this was our first visit there. Comfortable bed, comfortable room and convenient to town. We really enjoyed our... More

I like the fact they keep in contact with you as i book a year in advance, and have had problems with other motels double booking. So the emails... More

A great place to stay. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was very clean and comfortable with everything you needed for a few days stay. The owners, Elwyn and Suzanne, were very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. It was well located within walking distance to restaurants and eateries. We couldn't...

What a wonderful time we had in Palmerston North. Motel was central to the city, could walk to eateries if required, cleanliness was paramount in the rooms every day, nothing was too much trouble from the owners, in all, first class. Would come again. It was a home away from home.
