Our room was booked for us by friends as we were using Palmerston North as a rendevous point for an evening together. Hard to fault the welcome or the room. I felt that the room was rather small than others I had stayed in elsewhere in NZ. The two comfy chairs were a bonus and not something you often find. Very limited space to store any clothes would make this a poor choice for a longer stay but was fine for one night when the clothes stay in the case.
I was also suprised to pay more in Palmerston North than similar accommodation in Auckland but I don't know the local market. Internet access being included is a model that others should follow. Being charged extra for things that I believe should be included puts me off a place far more than the actual value involved as I always get a sense of being exploited. I would definitely stay here again.

BKs Palmerston North is definitely worth staying at. The rooms are imaculately presented with authentic lazi boys in the lounge, beautiful tiled bathroom and excellent bed. The car parking is great, we travel with a race car on trailer and have stayed here several times, always plently of parking. Its ideally located, just a couple of blocks from town. The hosts are very friendly, always very helpful. I do have to say the only downfall I have found would have to be the access to the rooms. Each room has a ranch slider that cannot be locked externally so you have to hike the length of the building to get out... but in saying that, id absolutely stay here again because it is gauranteed to be clean and comfortable and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to reception! we have stayed in the very far room twice and it is a big walk...

Hi guys
We just want to thank you very much for taking the time to write the review on BKs Motor Lodge. It is always appreciated. Next time you stay with us we will try to locate you closer to the exit door - not always easy as the property gets very busy at times.
We hope to see you again soon.

New and spotlessly clean motel with comfortable beds and chairs, well-equipped kitchenette, good and spotless bathroom, all well-located close to the centre of Palmerston North. Clean and safe car-parking too. Best of all were the super-friendly and efficient hosts, Pauline and John who made it a real pleasure to stay there. We will certainly be back.

Would recommend 100% - rooms are very comfortable and are spotlessly clean - the standard is very high. Pauline made me very welcome as soon as I arrived and the lodge honestly felt 'homely' - nothing was too much trouble and you are always greeted with a warm smile. I would not hesitate to recommend the Motor Lodge to fellow travellers - as long as there is a room available for my return visits !!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

Stayed for 2 nights over Easter. It was in the ideal location for our purposes and within easy walking distance to the main shopping square, A supermarket just around the corner for provisions. We had a 1 bedroom unit which I must say is the cleanest unit we have ever stayed in, in either NZ, or around the world. The double glazing assisted in making our nights very quiet. The couple managing this establishment over the Easter weekend holiday were very friendly but not intrusive, and they were able to inform us of what was on in the area at the time. Because we ordered only continental breakfasts they delivered it the evenings before so, as they said, we could have an uninterupted sleep in. These breakfast trays consisted of cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice, toast bread and spreads. The tray also had a jug of milk so we did not use up our milk supplied for our coffee. A very enjoyable stay at a lovely place. Thank you.
