Distinction Palmerston North Hotel & Conference Centre
Ranked #3 of 25 Hotels in Palmerston North
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is one of the better business type hotels around. The rooms are big, clean, comfortable and airy. Service is friendly and helpful without being over the top. The hotel is well located with a view about as good as it gets in Palmerston North.

This will be my first choice on any trips to Palmerston North and I think that generally it sets a standard that other hotels would do well to follow.

I liked thr breakfast buffet.

The rooms are in good condition, showers clean and basic TV and bed. This is about as good as it gets in Palmerston. The Restaurant is not that good for either breakfast or dinner so take a miss and use the nearby cafes

Thank you for providing your review. It is a real shame you did not enjoy the restaurant fare, we do get a lot of very positive feedback from our regular guests so perhaps worth a try next time you are in town.

Travelled to Palmerston North and booked into the Travelodge as booked by our travel secretary.

The first thing I noticed was the young lady behind reception who greeted me warmly and was extremely friendly as I checked. I must say, I travel a lot and she would have to be the best I have come across - exceptional. She even ran after a departing guest who ad left something behind.

The room was well appointed and clean, the food was good and reasonably priced.

Congratulations on your staff, well done.

Stayed here for my nieces 30th which she had in an adjoining bar below. Very pleased with how this hotel has been renovated and the staff were very helpful. Comfortable beds and very good room service meals, we could order off the main restaurant menu for room service as well. Chicken and mango salad was very nice.

Will definitely stay here again
