The staff was excellent. Able to do laundry, had breakfast delivered to the room every morning, even the night before so my husband could have his breakfast before leaving early for work. It's right near city center, the mall, and restaurants. Only drawback is wifi is limited to 200 free MB per day, but that's seems to be the norm... More

After a dreadful night elsewhere in PN, we looked for somewhere better to stay. We found it. The hosts are just lovely, the rooms are clean, with everything you would need. It's easy walking distance to town. I won't stay anywhere else on my next visit. Well done guys.

This is home away from home... we've stayed as a family, couple & now on my own. No need to try other motels, we will stay with Rose City every time! Units are well equipped, nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. Super clean! Location is fantastic, Hosts very friendly & couldn't have been more helpful.

We always stay here during our visits to Palmerston North. The hosts are really friendly and informative of what is going on in the area. The motel is always clean and it is very close to the main shopping area of Palmerston North.
