We will return again, as have done in the past, for very clean, spacious, pleasant accomodation. Not super duper flashy but very close to town, and the winner for us in regard to friendly helpful staff.

Company booked this hotel for us while visiting a firm in Foxton. Very courteous and pleasant staff. Great breakfast included and staff told us where to go for good food (dinner) around town. Very clean and modern facilities. Highly recommended and will be back when in Palmy.

A great place to stay when in Palmerston North. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very roomy and comfortable. Close to CBD - very walkable distance. Quiet and clean. Will come again. Well priced. Really no more to say but hopefully this sentence will take me to 200 letter so I can submit
