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

A good sized room. Comfortable beds, bathroom with a lovely large Jacuzzi. Could have included shower gel and shampoo, I didn't bring any. There is a 'Guestarant" (restaurant) but this is only open during the week.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm not quite sure why your room did not have shower gel and shampoo, there are pump bottles in all our apartments, please accept my apology for this. Although the guestaurant is usually closed over the weekend, we are able to open for group bookings. Dean and Helen Young More

A great stop. Very tidy and spacious rooms. Excellent friendly service at desk, welcoming, accomodating and willing to go the extra mile to provide information about Napier. Would have been good to have supplies restocked for second day. Highly recommend!

The room was large and the bed comfortable. It is situated a 10 minute walk from the city but there is shops and restaurants just down the road. We didn't use any of them so don't know if they're good or not. The motel has a restaurant that we tried one evening. The food was not at all bad.
