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

Have stayed at Hacienda Motor Lodge a couple of times now, and the service is excellant. The rooms lovely and clean and last time stayed in apartment style unit, very spacious. 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.

Elwyn and Suzanne were very friendly and welcoming, and gave us useful suggestions on places to eat and how to get around. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with a double and 2 single beds - all very comfortable. If we were to stay in Palmerston North we would definitely stay here again.

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

What a great place to stay. Very welcoming and personalised place to stay. Rooms are very clean and well presented. Location to City is perfect. Owners very helpful in map reading. This made a very enjoyable night for a Grandma and Grandaughter bonding time. I would recommend this Motel to stay as it has been so lovely and welcoming to... More
