This motel/hotel has everything the modern traveler needs: Wifi, TV, kitchenette, spa tub, heat pump, secure parking, privacy, amenities, fridge/mini bar, leather seats, comfy bed and breakfast. The owner operator is so friendly and very helpful. Everything is cleaned to perfection.

Well appointed units, in a secure and safe environment with good parking. Great service. Exceptionally clean, modern limited-but-adequate kitchen facilities - well stocked with decent quality crockery etc, spacious bathroom, A.C, and great bed linen. Only negative - queen rather than king sized beds.

Having travelled back through the night from the USA we were exhausted and grumpy after a horror flight on Air New Zealand. Detouring through Palmerston North to visit family on our way back to the Gold Coast we were overjoyed to find such a haven of luxury in NZ. Arriving a few hours before nomal check in we were welcomed... More

Just had 1 night here on our way to Napier but this place is recently constructed & the first floor room we had very comfortable. I am not sure why there seems to be a thing about putting "2 person spa baths" in the rooms - perhaps it's just a N.Z. thing - but we didn't use it & I... More

Well appointed rooms. Quality chattels. So good to come back here each evening to a spacious unit, luxurious spa bath and quality linens in a spotless apartment. Hosts are very accommodating, polite and attentive. Well worth the investment.

We got in late due to a ferry cancellation. The owner walked us to our room... What a beautiful unit. Not only an ultra modern kitchenette, but an in room spa seating two very tired travelers. Bath area was spectacular and the room even had a recliner and a barrel chair for comfort. Cushy bed and the owner had baked... More

Have stayed here several times on work trips and would recommend it. It's pretty new, rooms have spa baths, clean and tidy. Great owners, very helpful and I love the home baking left in your room. Good breakfast as well. Good spot, I will be back.

City Corporate ticks all the boxes - spacious, beautifully appointed, quiet, immaculately clean, welcoming and excellent value. My last overnighter in Palmerston North was less than restful, thanks to a persistent snorer on the other side of a very thin wall, so I was anxious to avoid anything similar! I didn't need to worry - the bed was superb and... More

We ended up choosing this place to stay based on the reviews on here. I am so pleased we chose this venue for our one night stay. Jan and John were the perfect hosts. From the friendly manner of Jan on the phone when I made the booking to the cheery welcome from John when we arrived. The room was... More
