Another nice stay at the Coachman. Have tried a few hotels in Palmerston North and this is still my favourite. Good facilities with a nice boutique feel. Stayed in room 302 ...nice room! Staff were very nice as well...friendly and helpful which made this again a very good stay.

Can't fault this hotel it has everything and personal touches not found in other hotels. Very warm and comfortable beds. Children chose this hotel for the room service but were not happy when ordering a toasted sandwich and were told they had to go down to reception to get it? room service? not very good. Apart from that we loved... More

Looks like a good hotel from the outside but is showing its age inside. Evening meal in restaurant ok but no better than that. There are better places to eat in Palmerston north. Bitten by something in the room at night, over 70 bites on my body

Booked a deluxe suite which is really pretty average. Clean and tidy, but would be considered a normal room in lots of hotels. Lets see how the meals are tonight and tomorrow. Several others from working staying here too. be interesting to hear their comments. Surely that is 200 characters. If not, will not submit a review.

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years mainly because of the location so I feel qualified to write this review having stayed in many of the rooms. In all the time we have stayed there have only been minor decor changes. The hotel is run down and badly needs upgrading, it has uncomfortable beds and pillows,... More

The Coachman is a proper hotel in a town with so many motels! The location is handy for the city centre and the university. The hotel seems to run a lot of functions, which gives it a buzz but doesn't compromise the atmosphere of quietness if the rooms that I have stayed in. It has very spacious suites and dedicated...

The rooms are light, warm and comfortable, though the decor is a heavy and old-fashioned. Free wi-fi, comfortable beds, quiet room which makes for excellent business travel. The restaurant menu is a bit middle-of-the-road but there are other dining options nearby.

We tend to go to this Hotel because it usually ticks all our boxes. We were dining elsewhere (maybe not such a good choice this time as the meal was just ok) but the room was warm to come back to as we had left the heat pump on, and bed was comfy and we slept well. Good breakfast and... More

Stayed overnight for business. Comfortable room that was warm, clean and had all the facilities that I needed. Great to get free WIFI :-). Friendly, helpful staff who advised us to book for dinner as the hotel was I full that night. There was lots of choice for dinner including many gluten free options. Good wine selection and reasonably priced.
