We have just enjoyed an excellent two night stay. Is an amazing business - busy with business travellers during the week, car racing on the weekends. Everywhere was exceptionally clean, the armchairs very comfortable, the rooms superbly sound insulated so minimal noise from above and no noise from guest carpark outside our room. Next time will request an upstairs room... More

Dear David & Merilyn, Thank you so very much for taking the time to send us an excellent review. We love that you enjoyed the sound proof aspect of your room, along with the la-z-boy chairs. Always a pleasure to meet with folks in a similar industry. Until next time Kindest Regards Roger & Margy More

By far the best motel we have ever stayed in. We booked a studio shower room with a king bed and it came with $20 breakfast credit for each day too. This was a great deal and we felt it was excellent value for money. The location was perfect for us, within 10 minutes easy (and flat) walking distance from... More

We travelled as a group of five, so had adjoining suites, one with a king bed in the lounge, a second with a single in the lounge and queen in the bedroom. The larger unit had a spa bath. Two comfy recliners in each unit. The first night there, we were concerned that the group of youths playing basketball in... More

Thanks Lucy's Mum for taking the time to submit a great review. We are very pleased the double glazing and soundproofing worked well. We actually live on site and I can say, even when Stock Cars are on, the sound resembles a large bumble bee buzzing outside. We keep doors & windows closed also :) Stock car enthusiasts love our...

I stayed with my family over Christmas and although it was a short stay I was very impressed by the standard of the room and the service. I will be staying here again when visiting Palmerston North. I have stayed in a lot of motels over the years and this one stands out.

One of the nicest motels I have stayed in. We wanted something handy to speedway and this is right across the road. The couple running this place were very friendly and helpful to the extent they let us borrow a battery charger for our vehicle overnight.
