I stayed with my family over Christmas and although it was a short stay I was very impressed by the standard of the room and the service. I will be staying here again when visiting Palmerston North. I have stayed in a lot of motels over the years and this one stands out.

Spotlessly clean, comfortable, Lovely hosts, Staff doing the cleaning were really nice efficient and friendly. We have stayed in a number of motels in PN for various reasons, but from now on will stay at this one and can without hesitation recommend other people to stay.

One of the nicest motels I have stayed in. We wanted something handy to speedway and this is right across the road. The couple running this place were very friendly and helpful to the extent they let us borrow a battery charger for our vehicle overnight.
The room was fresh and modern and the huge spa bath was just what we needed.

After a terrible night at another motel my friend and I chanced on BKs. It was cheaper than the previous place and I was blown away by the standard of the room. Large with tasteful and modern decor, nothing worn or shabby, immaculately clean, host were friendly but unobtrusive. I would have liked to have stayed there longer. This is the first time I have ever been moved to write a review, that is how good it was.

Stayed here due to a double booking At another hotel and loved it ! Easy to find , huge room and huge spa bath . Everything was so clean and tidy, it was perfect . Hosts were lovely and friendly and made the experience even better.Wish I'd stayed here both nights instead of going to my original accommodation on night 2.

My husband and I booked in to stay at this motel over a "wotif" deal that included a breakfast credit of $20.00 for the room. We stayed for 2 nights over the NZ Labour Weekend (last weekend in October 2013).
The motel staff: Friendly and very accommodating.
The motel room: CLEAN, modern and light.
Breakfast: Was served in our room at our allocated time. Free range eggs and great orange juice.
Highly recommended. Great value for money - we would stay here again.

Room Tip: The motel is split over 2 levels, so if you have a problem climbing a set of stairs, please request...
