It was just a standard business trip - but with a spa pool in my room! The room was spacious, with a generous hanging/luggage space, a king-size bed, two armchairs, a desk and hard chair, tv and sound/DVD system, kitchenette, toilet/wetroom with large shower area, with a heated floor (nice!). And off the wetroom? A 4-seater spa pool. If it had a screen with connection for an Android phone so I could read my book on screen while sploshing around, I'd have been in hog heaven! (My colleague had a lesser room with a spa bath instead of a pool, and a less fabulous bed but still good).
And it's not all about the hardware - I was greeted with a smile and the offer of milk and orange juice, which were taken to my room while I drove the car over. Breakfast arrived on a tray right on time, with a smile.
I don't know if Palmy can sustain a motel like this for long - get in quick while it's still in business!

Room Tip: It's away from noisy parts of town. If you want to bathe in splendour, ask for a room with a sp...

How much importance do you place on front office? Do you like a warm smiley greeting on arrival? I do. What is a fair rate for a corporate traveller? Like, a traveller who will return month after month. Well, this place is too expensive at $135/night for a corporate traveller for a studio room. Coupled with a greeting and a look as though I had just got out of prison, I was not impressed. It is not hard to pick someone who is likely to return time and time again. Especially if the car is covered in sign writing!! Well, Mr Bentley...take note. Smarten up the reception and offer a better corporate rate and your occupancy might hit 99%. I like a previous review where a suggestion of a biscuit or two is a nice touch. I would also like to see towels that are not fraying at the edge and a shower that doesn't spray all over the floor. Minor issues, but with such fierce competition in the motel market, these little things do matter. The motel is within easy walking distance of good restaurants and is reasonably quiet so land as the other guest are quiet as it the units are very public. Free internet access is a must these days.

Hi Kiwiglobetrotter

Thank you for taking the time to review Bentleys.
I am pleased to write that the unpleasant encounter you had with the gentleman (previous owner) will not be greeting any of our guests any longer!
We have in place two lovely and friendly Managers, Tony & Lynda, who cannot do enough for Bentleys Guests. Since we have taken ownership we have also reduced our tariffs, as we agree the previous prices were a little steep. Under the new ownership we have biscuits in all suites, free internet for all guests, and most certainly no frayed towels!
Once again thank you for your feedback we hope you will come back and enjoy the new and improved Bentleys.

Warm Regards
Jimmy

Was so pleased to be told about this motel by friends as I had tried several others in Palmerston North and always been disappointed. Bentleys is very clean and relatively spacious. Well appointed and modern decor and was suited to large or small families as there is a selection of rooms. Good location as it was easy to walk into town. Little touches like the coffee plungers made it more than average. Free internet is a great idea but at 50mb it really didn't last long.

We spent two nights in this place over the Easter break, We stayed in an one bedroom SPA bath suites.

Pros:
+ The suite is clean and well maintained.
+ The SPA bath pool is spacious. It doesn't cause any condensation to the suite as it is located in a separate room
+ Big LCD TV screen (By hotel standard) and it was attached to a DVD player. We rented a few DVD from Civic Video and had a movie marathon. It was very relaxing.

Cons:
+ The free WI-FI only comes with 50MB data cap. 50MB can be chewed up easily by uploading a few photos to facebook or sync photos to Google+.
+ DVD player was place in a cabinet drawer which doesn't face to the couch. You can't use the Remote to control the player as it has no line of sight. You have to stand in front of the DVD player, set everything up, press 'Play' before laying on the couch.

Hi CSGoh

Thank you for taking the time to place feedback on Bentleys.
We have rearranged where the DVD player sits so that the remotes will be more inline without the need to stand on the bed!
We hope to see you back for another visit in the near future.
