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!

Stopped here with my son who was in a judo competition. Really helpful staff, room was spotless. Plenty of tea, coffee, milk etc. Plates and a nice place to eat/work in the room. Free sky and Wifi. Could not have asked for more. Even though it was a Saturday night, the room was very quiet, and the bed comfortable. Really... More

Was in Palmerston North on business and stayed here for a couple of nights. Not too flashy, but clean, comfortable, and quiet, plus with an easy 10 minute walk into the city centre, what's not to like.

I was looking for accommodation during a busy time while the National Secondary School's volleyball competition was on. Diane was quick to contact me and happy to fit me into a well appointed room. Room 2 is at the base of the stairs and very quiet indeed given the potential of noise next to a busy road. I had no... More

Stayed at this motel recently on business. Great location, friendly hosts, windows that actually open. A clean and comfortable place to stay. I also enjoyed the park and river walks in close proximity to the motel.

Absolutely loved my stay at this motel. I was in town for work over a 5 day period and booked in for the week. The motel managers are just the nicest people and so helpful. The service, parking and room was excellent. My room was large (larger than expected). And really appreciated having windows that opened and looked out over... More
