We were very tired when we arrived. The managers greeted us warmly, and made us feel very welcome. They were able to suggest restaurants to have dinner, and arranged for a local restaurant to deliver a take away to our motel. We had two bedrooms which were very clean, with a lounge and kitchenette. The bathroom was roomy and clean.... More

My husband and I needed a place to stay one night that was near Waitomo Caves, on our way to Taupo. The Palm Court served our needs well. Staff was very friendly and helpful, starting with giving us final directions by telephone and signaling to find the place. It turned out we were within eyesight, so he waved us over.... More

The motel showed no booking for me and my travelling partners and no available rooms. After consulting with the present owners of O & W Motels, the temporary receptionist phoned the Palm Court Motel... More

This was a one night stop over after the Waitomo caves. We were booked in up stairs and as they were not booked out they offered to move us from near the road to a room at the back. The owners themselves said that the road noise was a night a bit troublesome as it is right near the truck... More

We stayed one night for work as a stopover, clean & tidy room, and a little bigger than usual, The motel is well situated on the main road, only a few minutes walk from the town centre. The bathroom was also a lot bigger than usual, with very good water pressure (Great Shower).

We had a room at the second level that was pretty comfy and clean. It had everything that we needed. It was quiet and we did not really hear much traffic noise from the 2nd level. The owners were friendly and helpful. Free Wifi was provided upon request. Overall, I would say is a pretty good place for a short... More
