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.

Good location and good rate. The town itself, Palmerston North, is kind of a dud. Kiwi Suites Motel was quite nice.

We stayed at Kiwi Suites for 3 nights with our 11 year old son. I had booked a 2 bedroom apartment which consisted of an extremely comfortbable king bed in one room and a single bed in another. I would like to make the suggestion that the owners some how manage to put small venetian blinds on the top windows in the single bedroom as my son woke with the light in the morning. The lounge/dining area was well set out with a leather sofa which could easily be converted into a comfortable queen size bed. The kitchen was amazing! Brand new LG washing machine/dryer, microwave, full stove and oven and all the epuipment needed. The bathroom was another pleasant surprise - a corner spa bath, shower, heated towel rail and first class fixtures and fittings. There was complimentary soaps and shampoos and lovely soft towels in coordinating colours. We had a very comfortable stay but bear in mind that this motel is in the centre of town so although it's location is perfect for the restaurants, there may be some noise (although during the week we had none). I am sure that if you stay here you won't be disappointed.

Had our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed in the executive suite.
Had a beautiful nights rest after dining out. Wouldnt have known we were right in town.
So quiet! Wonderful staff so friendly and helpful. Clean, warm and cosy. They have lots of information on things to do in the greater Manawatu. Plenty of parking and B/fast to boot.
Ideal for shopping sprees, as you can park at motel and walk to shops. Lots of places to eat in walking distance as well. Loved that there was a computer in all the rooms and wirless internet; So easy to use. I recommend you to check it out for yourself.

I found all the staff very friendly and very helpful. When we needed a room for all five of us the staff manage to accomodate us. The rooms were very clean and well presented. The children were happy because of the facilities in the room such as sky, computer and internet access. My wife and I were also very happy with all the facilities in the rooms. I was also pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the price was. When I visit Palmerstoin North again I will be booking into the Kiwi Suites.
A big thank you to all the staff of Kiwi Suites for making our stay so enjoyable.
