“'Tino pai' - what a beautiful motel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2010

Had our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed in the executive suite.
Had a beautiful nights rest after dining out. Wouldnt have known we were right in town.
So quiet! Wonderful staff so friendly and helpful. Clean, warm and cosy. They have lots of information on things to do in the greater Manawatu. Plenty of parking and B/fast to boot.
Ideal for shopping sprees, as you can park at motel and walk to shops. Lots of places to eat in walking distance as well. Loved that there was a computer in all the rooms and wirless internet; So easy to use. I recommend you to check it out for yourself.

I found all the staff very friendly and very helpful. When we needed a room for all five of us the staff manage to accomodate us. The rooms were very clean and well presented. The children were happy because of the facilities in the room such as sky, computer and internet access. My wife and I were also very happy with all the facilities in the rooms. I was also pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the price was. When I visit Palmerstoin North again I will be booking into the Kiwi Suites.
A big thank you to all the staff of Kiwi Suites for making our stay so enjoyable.

This is a great little motel now called kiwi suites not mid city motel anymore came up from wellington on intercity bus for a two day break the room was $89.00 dollars a night it was small but very clean seperate shower and toilet tv had a good selection of channels including sky the service at the the front desk was immaculate and can not praise highly enough i was going to stay at the travel lodge hotel but when i heard the price $120 a night i walked out this is palmerston north not wellington or auckland a provincial town the price should reflect that the only complaint i found a bit of food on one of the glasses a small thing which didnt effect my overall stay the motel also has a spa that i did not use good shopping is also available movies to with downtown cinema close by motel is located in town making everything in walking distance

A very well positioned motel for the centre of town. Modern spacious rooms, pleasantly furnished. Friendly management. And the only motel in NZ and Australia (and I've stayed in about 35 in the last 3 months) with BBC world. At last some news. What is it about NZ TV - it is completely infantile!
