I lived in Palmerston North for a number of years and used to make fun of this motel, with it's name that I wasn't sure how to pronounce and it's 80's like exterior, but I found a good deal online and it had good reviews, so I booked a room. Seriously impressed. We booked a one bedroom unit, with 3... More

Wow! Many thanks for your positive review. We are glad you enjoyed the new furniture + amenities and found it a nice unit for your family. As a family ourselves, we know how important it is to be comfortable when away from home! The name of the motel is pronounced as 'Shades' (i.e. put on your sunglasses!). We hope to... More

So impressed with such a clean studio unit. Loved the spa bath & the friendly welcome on arrival. Absolutely perfect stay - just as you would expect, though sometimes you get exactly what you pay for - not in this case, as this was inexpensive & value was exceptional. Thank You Team Shadzz

We stayed here two nights. One night in the two bedroom suite and one night in a studio. Both apartments have everything you need. Plenty of parking available and even some for our visitors. Just a walk to the city CBD, shopping and other amenities. Friendly and helpful management and staff. Definitely recommended

Such good value for money. Excellent chattels, large spacious room, air conditioning, everything you could possibly want it was more like a hotel than a motel. Hosts were so attentive to our every need. Towels changed every day. Bed was so comfortable. Close to all the shops and restaurants. But most of all so, so, clean -spotless. Would certainly only...

We had a lovely room that was not only comfortable but was roomy and very well appointed. The large spa bath was perfect as well. The beds and linen were good quality and it was worth paying the extra for such a nice place.

A warm welcome and then escorted to room. A nice change from most other motels where you are simply given your room number and key. The rooms are comfortable and very spacious for the price. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

Booked for Friday and Saturday night at what should have been a reduced rate. My wife paid the account and it wasn't until later I realised we had been charged the full rate not the weekend rate.

Second stay at this motel. Friendly and helpful staff with clean rooms and comfortable beds. Parking directly outside your room. Restaurants close by. SKY TV. On a busy road, but inside the rooms is still quiet and rooms heat up quickly in winter.
