“Overnight stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

My husband, 5 year old and I recently stayed at Shadzz Motel overnight in palmerston North.
The Motel was large, clean and comfortable with very helpful staff.
Being close to the centre of town it was idealy situated for us.
We were very impressed with all the facilities the motel had to offer and would reccommend it t all travelers.
With lots of towels in the rooms you were able to make good use of the spa bath and shower without having to use a wet towel - wonderful1 Also plenty of Sky channels to keep a 5 year old happy and snacks available for purchase in the room.

I have regularly stayed at Shadzz Motel over the past 5 years while travelling on business.

Peter & Roselle have always been friendly, professional and attentive to my needs. The facilities in their room are always clean and comfortable.

When looking for accomodation in Palmerston Nth, on the web, I liked the fact that when I rang
the 0800 number it was Roselle that answered the ph and was very helpful with my request.
She gave us a better price than any of the web sites could offer.
Both her and Pete were very friendly, helpful and professional. The room was very clean and
tidy with the three seperate beds we requested for our two night stay. It was quiet even though
next to a road, we all would recommend this hotel to others and would definitly stay here
again. 10 min stroll to the square and food shops, fantastic!!!! Thankyou for making our
trip to Palmerston so easy.

Roselle and Pete are professional and more importantly, normal friendly human beings. Their establishement is clean comfortable and centrally based. They offer a free gym session that includes a pool, spa pool, hydroslide. They also have a free golf game at the wonderful Manawatu Golf course. Here is the winner, they have full digital tv available (Sky), I don't know of any other motel that offers this service at this price. I simply would not stay anywhere else.

Cheers
