Just a very quick one night stay but they all count really don't they. Good location amongst all the Motels and Hotels within the street and handy walking distance back into the main area of Palmerston North. Good room and quiet and the staff were helpful and friendly and as I was only there for the night no dramas at...

Stayed here on business for ten days. Received a pleasant surprise in Rose City. As I had arrived on a early flight, an early check in had been requested well after booking. This was not an issue and myself and a colleague were checked into our respective rooms by the very friendly and cheerful manager, Glen. The room was perfect-...

This was my first visit to Palmerston North and our customer had made the booking so I didn't quite know what to expect. On arrival, we checked in and Glenn, the proprietor, showed us to our rooms, provided us with milk and offered advice on things to do and places to go. The room itself had a comfortable double bed,...

Good location within 10 mins walk of the city centre. Very pleasant & helpful staff/owner. Good sized rooms with all facilities. Clean & tidy. Plenty of parking. Only downside for us was the double bed which was rather small & not too comfortable.

Hi Chris. Thanks very much for your review and for taking the time to make it. We are just in the final stages of finishing a complete renovation of the motel, with new kitchens and bathrooms, and once completed we will be purchasing king sized beds for our studio units. At the moment all of our larger beds are queen...

Clean and centrally located motel with 2 bedroom units, walking distance to town, very comfortable beds and a beautiful, reconditioned bathroom. Request a top floor unit if absolute quiet is important to you as you can hear people moving around above you. We had a very quiet night's sleep though.

Within a 5 minute stroll to the square this motel is centrally located. Check in was prompt and friendly and I had to cancel a 2nd night due to business reasons and no problem with this. The rooms are quite modern or reasonably recently updated and the one I was in was a studio with a large spa bath. Value...

Hi Shane. Thanks very much for your review and for taking the time to make it. As you say being centrally located sometimes has its pitfalls with traffic noise, but we are not such a big city that it is a constant problem. Your unit was near the road, so if you do choose to stay with us again, we...

Excellent location close to the centre of town, the rooms are large and very tidy. The highlight has to be the large tiled bathrooms, very impressive for a motel. We stayed as a large group and booked rooms that covered 2 levels.

This is a fantastic motel, very close to the center of town and all the amenities you might need. Restaurants, bars, groceries and shopping all within 200m. Motel is modern, clean and well presented, with plenty of parking. Would suit anyone, from family vacations to business overnights.
