I stayed here with my two children, and it was excellent. Very tidy and new with abundant parking. Hosts Roger and Margy were very gracious, and absolute pleasures to be around. It is obvious they both love what they do, and it is reflected in the service they provide. Rooms were large and very quiet and dark at night when curtains drawn. Air conditioning was greatly appreciated. Slept great. Close to town and great cafes too. Will highly recommend Bk's Palmerston North to everyone. Very good rates. 4 thumbs up from me.

Craig.

Booked on line as a place to stay while catching up with relatives and made an excellent choice. Was greeted on arrival by friendly, helpful host. The unit was perfect, extremely clean and tidy with relaxing spa bath. Loved the lazyboy loungers for relaxing after visiting relatives. Close to town but with virtually no traffic noise. Stayed here 2 nights and would certainly stay here again next time we come to Palmerston North.

We were going to the Woodville Races and decided to use Palmerston North as our base. I was intrigued by the Wotif quoted price of $99 for what was purported to be a 5 star establishment and hence the decision to stay here. We were not disappointed. Our room sparkled - it had a beautiful bathroom, great bed and two Lazy Boy chairs that were very comfortable (although they did dominate the room somewhat). The building is basically a corridor with rooms on each side over two levels. Half of the rooms face on to the carpark (from which there is access on the ground level) whilst the others face on to your own tiny courtyard. We were in one of the latter towards the end of the corridor and with quite a lot of luggage had to make a number of trips to get our belongings to our room - a trolley like you get in airports would have been useful. The motor lodge is a couple of blocks from George Street and Coleman Place with its boutique shops and cafes. Cafe Cuba on the Corner of George and Cuba Streets is recommended - as good a coffee as I've ever had.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage you may want to ask for a room on the ground level facing the car park.

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
