My partner and I usually stay at Aubyn Court when in PN [approc once every 2-months] and the only reason I wanted to try somewhere different was due to having to sit outside the front door, in plain view of all the other rooms when having a cigarette. I found Kiwi Studios up on the internet under preference for 'balcony'... More

Had unit 8 which had a great layout, except the pocket sized bathroom. Very narrow carparks, but fortunately the motel was not busy when we stayed. Great location - no need to use the car which was a plus. Handy to shops, restaurants, etc Had no soap in shower. No apology for missing sky remote or soap. Booked for 2x... More

Stayed here with friends and got the family suite. Excellent price in comparison to other motels in Palmerston North. The lady running it was very helpful. The location is excellent and quieter than i thought it would be. If i wanted somewhere cheap to stay, I'd stay there again. No frills but a good location, a good price and it... More

Travelling on my own . Studio unit well appointed and exceptionally clean, and modern. Bed very comfortable, with good linen. Bathroom a little small but again; clean. Even though in the centre of town, I felt secure as they shut the main gates at night. Free wi-fi is good.

Excellent location. Very clean. However just a few things I think would have made our stay perfect. The room was cold. We had to use the little fan heater as there was no central heating. This did warm up quite quickly so not really a problem but definitely noticed. Quite a dark room. While I don't mind low lights when... More

This motel is right in town. We were given a very friendly welcome. They had a room to put our mountain bikes. There were modern TV's in both rooms. Handy place to stay. We appreciated the free wi-fi.

On a trip to Palmerston North, to retrieve our son from university, we booked a stay at the Kiwi Studios Motel. It was nice that they offered some accommodations for a family that had three adults. We found the executive room that we booked to be clean and spacious. The room even had the extra convenience of an in-room washer... More

The Kiwi Studios motel is in a very good location, just 2 minutes walk from the centre of Palmerston North. The motel carpark was full when I arrived (even though I arrived early afternoon) so I had to park around the corner on the next side street. It wasn't far away but it was inconvenient. It rained a little during... More

I originally booked a 2 bedroom apartment and a studio room for a travelling party of 5 at short notice (4 hours) due to a change in plans. From the start of the phone call to the completion of the stay Shelley, the manager was excellent. She did all she could to accommodate us by taking into consideration our toddler... More

Our 2 families had the chance to stay in the 2 executive rooms that this property has. We had athe joing door opened up as it was like being in your own home. A very well appointed one at that. Plus the convenience of having 2 fully equiped bathrooms including corner spa baths Thank you Shelley for a wondeful weekend
