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.

We celebrated our anniversary and they went out of their way to do an amazing platter full of all sorts of yummy goodies. There was also a lovely fruit platter near the spa bath. 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

My son & I were delighted to have found such a great place to stay in Palmerston North while my daughter had surgery at Crest hospital, which is just around the corner. Our accessible unit was prefect as I was on crutches recovering from surgery myself. Lovely clean spacious unit, wet floor shower and even a seat to sit on... More

Have stayed here multiple times and never had any major problems. They appear to have recently introduced a bond and for regulars that doesn't feel quite right, but otherwise the owners are nice. One minor quibble it that there are no net curtains so you are either visible to everyone or in the dark. Hacienda won't go down in my... More

Elwyn and Susie were the loveliest people you could ask for in a motel. The rooms very very nice and clean, spacious. Loved the spa bath. Susy makes an awesome fudge brownie that was to die for which is ready when you arrive. So close to town yet peaceful and not on a busy road. They are more than helpful... More

Brilliant motel, stayed for several nights and could not have been happier. The owners were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The unit was spacious and immaculate. The wifi was very useful and the unit had everything you could need. The motel is in a quiet road and so great for a peaceful nights sleep. It is just a few minutes... More

Right from when we drove in the gate we were greeted with warmth and made to feel very welcome. Everything we needed in our room, which was well set out with all we required. Only comment for improvement would be firmer pillows as we found them all (even the spare) a bit flat for us. Great stay - would go... More
