We stayed for only one night, but will return. Impressively sized unit, for parents and a teenager. Ideally situated in town centre with wonderfully helpful hosts. Just the place to be able to easily pick up takeaway food or if the mood takes grab something from the supermarket just across the road. We had a really comfortable nights sleep in... More

An extremely spacious, very clean modern studio apartment with a large immaculate modern bathroom and a heat pump in the living area. It didn't have full cooking facilities so was $145/night instead of $160/night, but did have microwave and toaster. It was sited just off the square so close to supermarkets and shops.( 5 min walk away) and surrounded by... More

Very nice accomodation, including a very welcome spa. We had travelled many kilometres, and arrived in Palmerston North, in the middle of the day. The management were very friendly and welcoming. Thank you.

We have just stayed at this Motor Lodge and would definitely recommend staying here. It was lovely and clean although the cleaner did take exception that we were allowed to leave 1 bag plus 2 backpack type bags in the room before she was finished cleaning. A nice big spa bath was in the room, as well as a separate... More

I was booked in here by my work and was expecting just a small simple room. What a great surprise! On arrival the hosts were warm and welcoming and offered me a complimentary wine, beer or juice. He then took me to a large bedroom with its own spa bath and kitchenette. Little touches are evident in the snacks and... More

Stayed overnight on short notice due to unfortunate circumstances. Staff were very friendly and accommodating with the late check in. Our suite is exactly like their website...clean, tidy, comfortable and warm. Coming from sunny QLD to 4degrees windy cold weather, the heaters and electric blankets were very much appreciated and worked perfectly. The kitchen has two hot plates, microwave, toaster,... More

A modern and spacious room in a new complex with ample parking. Located close to the town centre and Massey University. The upstairs room had a wide staircase and a spa in the massive room with a king size bed. A little higher priced than others but well worth it.
