Our single unit was very clean and spacious with excellent lay-out. There was plenty of room for the 3 single beds in the room and it was a bonus to have the double bed in the lounge. The double access to the bathroom was very useful as it allowed easy flow-through from wherever each of us was sleeping. The television... More

A good location and large comfortable and well-equipped rooms. The rooms are very quiet too (well separated from street noise). Check in service personal and quick. It was nice to be given a small chocolate bar and snack along with the milk..

We came in late and booked our room after a screw up with Agoda, something that has never happened before, and were able to to book a room.

We have stayed at quite a few Motels in Palmerston North but this is by far the best. Lovely hosts, room very clean and spacious. Loved the extra towels especially with having a spa bath. Got 2 great nights sleep and really recommend this for a great stay. Nice and close walking distance to the plaza and eating places.

Before making a decision on accommodation or restaurants I always check the reviews, some make very interesting reading. Consistent feedback, good or bad shows the true nature of a business and its management. Inconsistent feedback may say more about the writer than the place or the occasion. One must make their own decision on which is more believable. I was... More

We would have stayed longer if we had the chance. What a lovely host and excellent facilities. We stayed in a family unit and loved the space esp after being in hotel rooms for a while. We found the owner so lovely and accommodating. Great local knowledge of restaurants etc.
