Reviewed January 6, 2013

I stayed here for one night in an upstairs spa studio. The room was modern, clean and well appointed. Bed was very comfortable. I slept well and there was very little noise. Comfy armchairs in the room was a nice bonus,The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was good - close to town. I enjoyed staying here and would recommend it. The only downside was the view/surrounds - just car parks and street. Not a place to stay if you want a picturesque view but otherwise it is good value.

Thank you for your positive comments and for taking the time to do so. On your next visit with us, for a better view, ask for a room on the upper level, at the far end. From there you are able to look out over toward the windmills on the hills, which is lovely on a sunny morning. Kind Regards Margy & Roger

My family and I stayed at BKs during a Massey University graduation and found it the perfect place to stay. Close to the town centre, but quiet, it was immaculately clean and the owners were really helpful and friendly - perfect. I would love to know the brand/make of the bed - so comfortable.

Room Tip: I don't think it will matter. I have stayed upstairs and down - both were excellent.

My 2-night stay at BKs couldn't have been any better in any way. I travel a lot and would rate this 10/10 - most complete packaged value for money motor lodge experience ever. The friendly welcome; speedy check in / out service; wide range of quality presented information on local activity, size, modern, fresh furnishing and sparkling cleanliness of room and bathroom; comfort of bed; electric blanket, choice of pillows; well stocked mini bar and appointed kitchenette, modern fully functional gym equipment and sauna facility; ample parking and quiet location so close to town all I needed and more. Would stay here again and will recommend others to do the same.

Room Tip: First room at top of stairs

We stayed in a 1-bed apartment here for 3 nights during a conference and were very happy with it. All the staff very friendly and helpful! Rooms clean and quiet. Heater/ air con in main room and electric blankets in bedroom made sure we were nice and warm. 5-10 min walk to city centre, restaurants and shops was very convenient.

I travel a lot on business and I am so thrilled with this place so much so I didn't even want to go out for dinner or breakfast, the rooms are so lovely definitely a high standard and everything you need and the managers, well I have never met such a lovely couple so friendly and accommodating and even when I asked for breakfast at 8.30 this morning it was no trouble for them they happily abliged, I would highly recommend everyone to stay here and I certainly would not stay anywhere else, it's by far the most loveliest place I have ever stayed

We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit ( actually 2 units with adjoining doors) which was great for our family. One unit was a studio unit with queen bed in lounge then other room had A queen bed in the bedroom and single in the lounge. The managers Margy and Ross were so helpful and welcoming, nothing was a problem - what awesome people.. The lazy boys in the lounge were something we hadn't had before and the idea of being able to borrow DVDs and books if we had wanted them was really cool. We really thoroughly enjoyed our stay at bks and would most defiantly stay there again. Thank you Margy and Ross.

We stayed two nights at this motel in Palmerston North and were highly impressed by the friendliness of the managers from the very beginning. Our queen unit with spa bath was clean, comfortable and well-appointed with two Lazyboy armchairs. The spa bath was spacious and relaxing. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, with a supportive Sleepyhead mattress. Facilities included a guest laundry and a gym (treadmill, oblique trainer & weights machine) with a sauna cabin. A range of DVDs and books is available for guests to borrow, should they wish, and there is a good range of satellite channels on the TV. The information compendium in the room provided a wealth of information about restaurants in the immediate vicinity, which helped us to choose one for our first evening there. It is also conveniently situated within walking distance of The Square and also a Countdown supermarket (in the opposite direction to The Square). We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we returned to Palmerston North.
