Our company had some very bad experiences with the prior operators of this motel, I was informed that it had changed ownership so decided to check it out. I was blown away with the changes, the refurbished units are great as is the welcome you receive upon arrival, I can highly recommend this motel now and can confirm our company will be staying there again whenever in Palmerston North.

Awesome place to stay, will be back for sure. Hosts were helpful and friendly, room was spotless and new. It is great to have such a big TV, plenty of space and best of all...an awesome shower! As a tall man, when I travel, I often struggle to get a decent shower, but not this time. Fully recommend Drovers Motor Inn to people heading to Palmy.

We got a special deal and stayed for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable, having being recently refurbished. It was great to have a 42" TV to watch the opening of the Olympics and we could see it from in bed as well. The heater was exceptionally efficient - ideal for cold weather and the shower was one of the best we have had at a motel. There was plenty of everything we needed - milk, coffee etc and we really liked the eco friendly approach to all aspects of our stay, including the organic condiments. Very helpful and friendly service and we will definitely stay there again.

Studio was very well equipped with everything we needed. Exceptionally clean, warm and comfortable. Our welcome was very friendly and efficient - I really felt like we were expected. Breakfast was excellent and the shower so powerful it nearly knocked me off my feet! Very helpful in changing our bed configuration to suit as well.

It was lovely to walk into a warm and cosy studio unit on a wet and cold Palmerston North evening. We found the unit very comfortable, beds and pillows great with fluffy extra blankets available. The breakfast was great too!

As soon as I walked into the studio, I was suprised how clean and spacious it is. The shower is powerful. The motel is on the main road but the unit was very quiet. The unit is also self contained so we could do a bit of cooking and making us breakfast in the morning. You should definately come and stay when you are in Palmerston North.
