“Excellent Place to Stay!”
Reviewed March 7, 2010

We spent three nights at this lovely lodge in a one-bedroom unit, and were very impressed with the great service, spotless accommodation, spacious, beautifully decorated unit. The owner/hosts were very friendly and helpful. Close to supermarket, which was important to us. We highly recommend this lodge to everyone!

I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Arena Lodge. I received a lovely welcome and was made to feel a special guest. Great attention to detail and transport booked to and from the Lodge.
Spacious room furnished to a high standard. I would thoroughly recommend the Arena Lodge to one and all.

I travelled to Palmerston North for my Fathers Funeral with my mother, two brothers their wives and children. We chose the Arena because of its good central location and based on a quick search of the internet. We had little to go on but are very pleased with our choice as Brent and Stephanie are delightful hosts, the motel is really really well laid out and well equipped, nothing was too much trouble. We had two 3 bedroom units which were comfortable and modern, the facilities first class, just really clean and everything you could hope for. The location is quiet and right opposite the rugby ground if you are in town for the footy. Its about a 10 minute walk to the town square. We took taxis though as we are a bit lazy. I would definately stay at the Arena again and recommend without hesitation.

I used this motel for an overnight business trip and found it to be more than suitable for my needs.
They had broadband internet access at a cost of $10 (for use until following morning).
Breakfast options are available for room service, including Gourmet, Continental or cooked at reasonable prices.
The room was modern and comfortable, with full cooking facilites and sky tv. Plenty of parking available, most available handily outside the rooms.
The owners were friendly and willing to help if needed.

Overall, I would highly recommend this to any person or family's that are looking for a modern/comfortable room - there are larger units by the looks for the families. There is plenty of choice in Palmerston North, but this would be one of the better options from my experience.

Location of motel is located opposite the Arena Manawatu (Rugby ground), in a nice location and easily walkable to the city centre, cafes, gym and grocery store.
