The room was well set up as a self-contained unit with comfortable beds and clean. The situation was close to the city and within reach of any restaurants you may require. The owners were thoughtful and welcoming with a quick response to any requests. I especially enjoyed the lazyboy chairs.

Thick walls so well insulated for noise & warmth. Comfortable bed and facilities. Personal service outstanding. Specialise in helping visitors to hospitals & hospices. Great empathy and personal touches such as home baking. Within walking distance to supermarket & eateries and main shopping centre.

Being an ex Palmerston North dweller, it was good to be able to identify accommodation close to town and airport plus excellent cafes. The room was spacious and clean with very comfortable easy-boy recliners for watching tv or reading. The bedroom provided plenty of space for accommodating baggage as well as easy access to the bathroom/ensuite. The first day we... More

My husband and I were given the opportunity to get away for a child free night, the first time in 11yrs. We booked a spa unit and called to arrange a fruit platter and were warmly welcomed with a unit upgrade and upon arrival that evening we were blown away to find a small bottle of bubbly, a card and...

I stay here quite frequently. Love how the rooms are quiet and curtains cut out most of the light. Perfect for a light sleeper. The comfy bed, deep spa bath and fabulous hosts make this my choice of place to stay.

The room was very clean, tidy and modern. Very friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay special. I would highly... More

Stayed at the Hacienda Motor Lodge in May on a business trip and would have to say it was the best I have stayed in for years. I do a lot of travelling around the north island and have no hesitation telling people this is where you "must stay". I have now instructed my sales rep who covers the lower... More

We stayed at Hacienda Motor Lodge, in May 2014. We booked three rooms, one for three elderly relatives, one for a family of relatives - children, parents and a grandparent, and a room for ourselves – a couple. All of the rooms were incredibly spacious, clean and functional. The décor was nice in each room and furnishings felt new and... More
