The group I travelled with found the Palm City Motor Inn very comfortable and warm (the weather wasn't great while we were there) but the staff and owners were really helpful and looked after us as a group like family.

The place itself is fabulous. I got a room with a spa bath, the room was neat and cozy, very comfortable for a good rest, especially with the bath. The staffs too were awesome, very friendly, accommodating and thoughtful.

Great staff, very friendly and went the extra mile, loved the room we had, made great use of the spa room and the children's playground. Easy to find and close to all the attractions. The owner was very helpful with information and suggestions.

Great room with facilities. Close to shops and was really perfect for what we wanted. My partner enjoyed the spa as well. Owners were lovely and very personable. Amenities were clean and rubbish was cleared from our room while we were out. Thank you for your hospitality. :)

Exceptional reception staff. Very helpful and welcoming. Our unit was extremely comfortable, warm and clean. Big shout out to the cleaning personnel who do a fantastic job. The weather was miserable so it was nice to return from the funeral to a warm and very comfortable abode. We will certainly return to Palm City Motor Inn.

Reception was excellent and the room was very clean and tidy - everything needed was supplied would definitely recommend this motel. Quite near the city centre ( certainly within walking distance) Breakfast was good hot and delivered on time. They do have a restaurant which we would have tried but it was closed - not sure why

Our Stay at Palm City Motel was really good, easy to locate even when your not from the area. If you wanted to walk into town it would only take you 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main shopping area and a couple of minutes to be at the seafront. The staff at the Motel were really friendly... More

This Motel is perfectly placed on the edge of the main part of the City but close walking distance to either the Marina at Ahuriri or the City centre. Our accommodation was immaculately presented with all rooms very clean and spotless. The people who run the Motel were very helpful but discreet. Thanks for a fantastic stay
