Nice to find lazy boy chairs to sit it, much more comfortable than most hard motel chairs. TV at a height that you can watch without getting a crick in your neck. Receptionist (reliever) was friendly & helpful. Good sized spa bath for 2 people. Bed a little firmer than we like, but many would find it perfect. All up... More

Im so often on the road now that places I know well feel like a home from home. It was always a point of difference that a glass of wine or beer was offered on arrival, sad thats gone ;( The breakfast is always good and tasty, and the rooms spotless.

Convenient location, convenient restaurants including very good Thai, convenient for one night stay, conveniently cheap. Clean, dated interior with reasonable facilities. However in a 6 week stay in NZ this was the only place where I felt any antagonism from a motel owner. I needed the wifi details as it didn't work, went to the office during office hours and... More

A simple clean Motel that had everything you need for a short stay. Bed was comfortable and toilets, shower clean and tidy. Although its a little dated, its comfortable and short walk to the central city square and places to eat.

We were 3 adults, given a double bed and single bed. The double bed might not be suitable for taller people but fine with us. Beds were very comfortable with clean sheets, blankets and pillows. The studio was not ideal for 3 adults for definitely very good for 2 adults. The room had a bar fridge, microwave, kettle and kitchen... More

The accommodation was simple, but extremely clean and very well located near to the centre of Palmerston North (ten minutes walk), and just around the corner from a large Pak n Save supermarket. I really enjoyed the spa bath, which was very welcome after a hard day at work. The room was also well- equipped with a microwave for heating... More

I was very impressed. All central attractions and shopping centres within an easy 10min walk. Yet although so close to cbd, was very quiet at night. Room was clean with a really good bed. Super big spa, micro & cutlery with a super cheap pak n save 200 m away. So can save money on meals. Central heating sky and... More

Stayed here for one night and honestly I have never stayed in a cleaner motel room ... even my mum would have been proud! The room was warm and comfy and the bed was spot on. Large room, all the facilities you could possibly require. I don't know what a previous poster was talking about in regard to security because... More
