“**LOVELY MOTEL IN PALMERSTON NORTH**”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Stayed here for a week while my daughter was playing hockey, so very handy to the turf. Had a one bedroom unit - lovely and clean and no complaints at all. The hosts, Keith and Bronwyn were great and nothing was a problem for them. So thank you both for a lovely stay and for really going out of your way - we look forward to staying with you again when next in Palmerston North!

Pleased the One Bedroom 'home' worked well for you for the week. Was a pleasure having you stay with us. Trust you are on top of the 'paper war' catch up now...

I stayed here two nights. The motel is on the University end of Fitzherbert Avenue, rather than the town end, which suited me. The room was spotless and modern. The cooked breakfast I had was generous and delicious. The couple running the motel made a huge, positive difference to my stay with their careful and kind service - simple things like greeting me by name when they brought me breakfast.

Only stayed a night but was able to sample the friendly welcome from the hosts who wanted to help me.

i arrived by bus in the centre of town and the motel is quite a walk from there so be prepared for that.

If I ever go back to Palmerston North, I would definately stay here again.

Many thanks for taking the time to post your review and thank you for your recommendation. Re the15 - 20 minute walk with luggage in tow - It's a shame you didn't grab another bus as they stop right outside our motel complex. Safe travels... Keith and Brony

Stayed one night when on business and booked based on the Trip Advisor rating. Very friendly and helpful owners. It was a little way out of the main centre. The room was spacious, immaculate and had everything I needed so can't be faulted. Very reasonable price too. The only thing was the decor was a little old fashioned, which certainly didn't affect how comfortable it was, but I guess I would have liked something a bit more modern. When you are travelling by yourself this is quite important to me. Also a niggly thing was the coffee cups were the heavy "ex railway" style.

Jo appreciate you taking the time to post your review. Pleased you found the room everything you needed. Decor - we did 1/2 of the units last year and are waiting (due in 6 weeks I have been told) for new bedspreads, drapes and comforters for the remaining Executive units.
Laughed at your 'ex railway' style coffee cup comment - personally I do not like them either but we get so many comments that it's good to get a decent size coffee cup...... :-)

This is a very clean, very well organised and pleasant motel not too far from the centre of Palmerston North. It was quiet and the couple who run it are extremely helpful and good to deal with. I would recommend this without hesitation.

We booked this motel on the strength of the recommendations on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. The room was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the shower was EXCELLENT. The room contained a well-appointed kitchenette with coffee and biscuits and dishes for use. The room was very spacious as well. Bronwyn went out of her way to accommodate our late arrival and was extremely friendly and helpful on several counts. On our departure day, she looked at our route with us and recommended a lovely hike on our way that we could use to take a break from driving, and it was perfect. Absolutely can recommend for anyone coming through Palmerston North.

Myself and Husband spent a night here to celebrate being married for one whole year. Keith the owner was a real sweaty and really made us feel like we were on a second honeymoon. While the place wasn't as luxury as we expected, it was clean and tidy and very reasonable priced. while we will try somewhere new for next year, fingers crossed we will still be together :) i would reccomend this place to anybody who wants a nice clean lovely place, close to town,

Molly J, exciting to be married for one whole year. Keith and I have last week celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary but I do well remember the excitement of our very first wedding anniversary... a long time ago. :-) We don't claim to be 'luxury' accommodation but feel that Harringtons is an honest Qualmark 4 Star and priced accordingly. Wish you both well...
