This motel is my preferred place to stay when I am in Palmerston North for a few nights. Rooms are contemporary, well maintained an come with all you need (kitchen, microwave,fridge, etc and even a spa bath). Good wifi, airco and TV. Breakfast is like any other motel (not great) but they go a bit above by making good coffee... More

We enjoyed a night here. We were impressed by the clean, lovely decor and the most comfortable bed! The owner was very helpful and friendly. We would not hesitate to come back here next time we visit Palmerston North.

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
