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.

The manager (who might also be the proprietor - I didn't ask) welcomed me by walking me over to the room to check it was as it should be; and supplied a small container of trim milk. There is a list of menus (delivery, takeaway or eat in) in the room and plenty of food sources nearby. My room had... More

Excellent spacious unit, clean and well equipped, very friendly helpful staff. Would definitely stay again. We didn't use the pool or spa areas as only had the one night here. We stayed as a family of 5 adults and there was plenty of room for us all.
