just a one night stay before an early flight out. Nice warm welcome, very spacious room, with large bed, tub chair, small table & two chairs and desk (plenty of room). A really nice comfortable room with a luxury feel to it. Very clean and tidy also. Although on main road, it was very quiet. Cooked breakfast was also great.

We have traveled to Palmerston North quite often and really do like staying at Fitzherhert Castle. Proprietors Geof and Diana make you real welcome.

What a pleasant surprise ... Quiet even though on a busy street. Central and within walking distance to local Mall.Clean room, comfortable bed.Lovely breakfasts. Will stay again ... The only odd thing was a knock on the door at 0300 one night! We suspect someone got the wrong room!

Owners Diana and Jeff were VERY nice; Jeff offering to take our bags upstairs (we accepted) and downstairs (we declined). Diana walked us down the street about 100 meters to show... More

What nice people ! We had a huge room with complete kitchen facilities. Although it's on a main road, our room at the back was very quiet and very comfortable. We walked to very large supermarket in a shopping centre and could cook well in the cute kitchen area.

Stayed for just one night to break the trip from Wellington to the Central Plateau. Large studio room, older style but clean. Refillable milk bottle from reception was a nice touch rather than plastic bottle. Within walking distance to a nice Thai restaurant and shops.

We enjoyed our stay here. A large comfortable room and a very friendly welcome. Good value. We felt valued and comfortable and would choose to stay there again. The room was clean and the hotel was obviously cared for. Nice bathroom too.

Hosts Diane and Geoffery are warm and welcoming and make it a pleasure to stay every time, you feel like part of the family, all the small things they do make your visit just like being at home, when away on business it is nice to still feel like home, great people, great service!
