“Tidy and compact (doubt you could swing a cat in living area)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

I picked a one bedroom unit. Modern, compact and tidy. If I was here with my wife we may of found it a little cramp. Wireless internet had a strong signal. Heating is awesome. Receptionist was pleasant on the eye and friendly.TV channels a little grainy on a few(in Lounge), but good in bedroom.Needs a suit case holder as I used the couch to store suitcase. Table top needs to be secured to frame.
Been in better, been in alot worst. Bathroom 10+. Would stay again on buisnss but would pass if with the family.

I stayed in kiwi studios while I was there for a conference lately.

Location: this is the best part of kiwi studios. The motel is wonderfully situated at broadway avenue where lots of great restaurants are located (chada Thai serves really delicious Thai food). Broadway avenue has lots of shops though most of them are really quiet now that The Plaza is opened. Kiwi studios is about 5 minutes walk to The Plaza (shopping mall) and the Square.

Service: the receptionist is very helpful and knowledgable.

Room: it is well equipped with a kitchen. The room is nicely decorated. Our room has two rooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds. There is an ironing board and iron in the room as well. Outside the room, a washing machine is available.

Others: Internet and parking are available.

Given the good location and reasonable pricing, kiwi studios will be my first choice if I ever revisit Palmerston north again.

I can't quite believe how lucky we have been to find this place! Upon arrival we were offered a free upgrade to a two bedroom suite, which was wonderful. It had a huge bathroom, which was luxurious and spotlessly clean. Nice furniture, comfy beds, TVs in each bedroom and the living room - even a dishwasher and washer/dryer in the spacious kitchen. Had a great heatpump too. The motel is right in the CBD area, but it was very quiet in our suite. The staff were so helpful and friendly too - a few hours after we left we found we had to stay in Palmerston another night, so we called them and they very kindly gave us the same suite again for a bargain price - can't get better than that! It's the best value motel we've ever stayed in and will definitely be staying again.

I organized a mini conference there for four people, and both the venue and service were outstanding.

I often travel down to Palmerston North from Cambridge to visit family, I only stay at Kiwi studios and find ALL the staff wonderful and friendly, nothing is to much trouble for them. They accomadate any changes that you require at short notice. The rooms are comfortable and clean to a high standard. Kiwi studios are within walking distance to town and amenities, once you have parked your car you wont need to drive anywhere.
Nice quiet relaxing experience everytime i stay there. :-). Janine C.

Myself and my teen daughter stayed here for a night.We had a 2 bedroom room, i had the bigger bed and it was really comfortable, i had a great nights sleep. Daughter had no complaints about the smaller room except she said it was a bit hot.
The kitchen looked new,had everything we needed, the couch and chairs were comfy,we also had a balcony and outside chair.The bathroom was amazing, a corner spa, and the towels were so soft. It was so close to food places and it was great we could walk stright into town. Good to have parking. I would definately stay here again.
