Hosts Diane and Geoffery are warm and welcoming and make it a pleasure to stay every time, you feel like part of the family, all the small things they do make your visit just like being at home, when away on business it is nice to still feel like home, great people, great service!

Stopped here with my son who was in a judo competition. Really helpful staff, room was spotless. Plenty of tea, coffee, milk etc. Plates and a nice place to eat/work in the room. Free sky and Wifi. Could not have asked for more. Even though it was a Saturday night, the room was very quiet, and the bed comfortable. Really... More

Was in Palmerston North on business and stayed here for a couple of nights. Not too flashy, but clean, comfortable, and quiet, plus with an easy 10 minute walk into the city centre, what's not to like.

I was looking for accommodation during a busy time while the National Secondary School's volleyball competition was on. Diane was quick to contact me and happy to fit me into a well appointed room. Room 2 is at the base of the stairs and very quiet indeed given the potential of noise next to a busy road. I had no... More

Stayed at this motel recently on business. Great location, friendly hosts, windows that actually open. A clean and comfortable place to stay. I also enjoyed the park and river walks in close proximity to the motel.

Absolutely loved my stay at this motel. I was in town for work over a 5 day period and booked in for the week. The motel managers are just the nicest people and so helpful. The service, parking and room was excellent. My room was large (larger than expected). And really appreciated having windows that opened and looked out over... More

The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We got upgraded to a king unit. Very clean and tidy. Full array of television channels. Plunger coffee supplied. Loved the milk in a reusable bottle. We will be staying there again.

Stayed in a studio unit, receptionist was friendly and obliging, This room was very clean and tidy, loved how you couple purchase in room snacks, my only gripe would be only getting two towels, when you have long hair it would be good to have a spare towel or two in the room so that your travel companion doesnt have...

i spend a lot of time on the road and have stayed in hundreds if not thousands of hotels in NZ, Australia and the USA but it is a long time since I have stayed in a motel that, while a little dated, exudes ambience, comfort and caters for all of the little whims a travel appreciates. Absolute cleanliness, all... More

As seasoned travellers who spend 150 nights a year in motels we're always after value, great sleep, ultra cleanliness, location and service. This motel ticks all the boxes with the added advantage of owners who really care about their business and go out of their way to be helpful. Room 9 where we stayed is very roomy, large spa bath,...
