It is close to the city centre and only a 10 minutes bus ride (stop is across the road) to Massey Uni. A supermarket is 5 minutes away... More

I stayed for three nights last month and the room was spacious, affordable and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was great. It was very handy to the city centre and food places. I will definitely stay there again when next in Palmerston North.

Can't beat this place for location just a short walk to supermarket restaurants and shops this coupled with off road parking makes life easy. Rooms are clean and tidy if a little airless for this time of year. Host was friendly and able to recommend places to eat.
