The reason for my stay was a cancelled flight and forced quick overnight stay, however, that was the good bit. The hotel appears to be in differing blocks, presumably mine being the prison block. It was old, dirty and poorly maintained. The bathroom appears to have been bodged up on several occasions and was from the Ark. A dirty used... More

We have stayed here several times and it is or accommodation of choice when staying in Palmy. We have seen it go from a 4 star hotel to the 3star or maybe a + that it is now. It has all the amenities of the bigger, brighter hotels but with a price tag a fraction of theirs. A true budget... More

Arriving late in Palmie as the locals call it, we decided to grab the nearest hotel motel for a quick night's sleep. We chose Kingsgate because it was close and the waitress at the restaurant said it was reasonable. If this place is considered reasonable i'd hate to see a real low class place. Staying in the detached motel style... More

WE stayed in one of the detached suites for one night. Considering the main tower block is being renovated it was not excessably noisy. Suites are very dated and not very sound proof but reasonably clean. Main bed ideal for romancing couple as the hollow in the middle always bought us together. For the price good enough for a flying... More

I booked this hotel as it was in a great location and is part of the Millennium hotel chain. I won't go to another Millennium hotel if they are all like this. The room was dated and tired. The bed was awful. It was probably originally in the honeymoon suite. The middle was so soft and had no support which... More

We stayed up on the top floor - given an upgrade actually .. for no extra cost. Pleasant room with nice view. Staff friendly and helpful. We were at a conference and the Palmerston North Conference Centre was not too far away by foot

Can you imagine an hotel where the spa is out because of maintenance but don't expect apologize and discounts... Can you imagine an hotel where the internet is so expensive and slow ?

The room was excellent value at the price we paid - clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The service at reception was also excellent - friendly and efficient. However, if you were thinking of eating there I suggest you take the short stroll down to the Square and spend much less on a better meal at one of the many cafes and... More
