“Wonderful warm welcome - Amazing accommodation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Stayed a night in August with the Hacienda in PNth. They couldnt have been more helpful. Just a wonderful stay and lovely accommodation - stylish and comfortable with everything you would ever need. Able to walk to Dinner in town and shopping.... Would absolutely recommend this accommodation.

Room Tip: We had three of the rooms and they were all great.

My husband was in hospital for an extended period. It was a very stressful time being away from home and not knowing the city. I have never been so looked after before in a motel. Suzy and her husband went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. The unit was great and each night after returning from hospital, my light and heater had been turned on. They were genuinly concerned, even to a follow up call after we had returned home. The Hacienda is in an excellent location - walking distance to the city centre 3 minutes drive from the Palmerston North Hospital. They have excellent accomodation for teams as well and I will definately be recommending them to my bowling friends.

We stayed with a group at the Hacienda. Owners catered to our needs supplying extra chairs and glasses for our visitors. First rate service, comfortable beds. Well decorated units. Will definitely recommend. Close to city centre.

I have recently been staying at the Hacienda Motor Lodge for work in Palmerston North. I have never experience such personal service before at a motel, the new owners are the loveliest genuine hosts whom I enjoyed chatting with and having a laugh before and after work. They make you feel right at home not just another bed for the night. The rooms are very modern, immaculately clean, warm and cosy. Chocolates on the pillows and cooked breakfast, you cant go wrong! Don't know where the below reviewer was staying but the Hacienda Motor Lodge in Palmy is the definition of above and beyond customer service and I will never stay anywhere else in the area again!

We have stayed a few times in this Motel and find it excellent. We have had both the family units and the studio type and they are large and very well appointed. This last time was due to a family breavement and when I went to book my head was everywhere, but Stu took it in his stride and we got the booking sorted. Same when we needed to stay an extra night, it was no trouble.
The cleanliness is second to none and would recommend for families, couples or just a single person. The owels are thick and of a decent size also, which I look for as a bigger person. Thanks Stu & Deb

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

I have stayed in a number of Motel around Palmerston North and Hacienda is by far superior. Large comfortable studio rooms with King sized beds, 42" LCD, spa baths etc.... Perfect for a home away from home for tired sales reps! I would recommend to all.

What a fabulous motel this is, it certainly ticked all the boxs that we look for in a motel, we stayed in a studio unit which had a lovely super king bed, 2 comfy lazyboy chairs,a big 42" TV, a great shower and was in a quiet area. We are usually early risers, but slept in till 7-8 every morning. I would certainly stay here again, and recommend to others.
