Good service, friendly owners. Booked through wotif.com - no hassles. Booked a standard studio room.
spacious room with a queen bed and a single bed, tv, coffee table, two leather chairs and foot rest, bedside tables, desk and chair, and wardrobe. heated (or cooled) by heat pump/air conditioner. seperatre kitchen area with small fridge, microwave and two elements for cooking. also in this area is a table-height bench with two chairs - would have been nice to see a table that you can sit and enjoy a meal with conversation or play cards at though. they give you real milk as well (none of those horrible brown meadow-fresh things with barely enough for a cup of tea each)
bathroom with shower and vanity, and seperate toilet connecting off this. clean, and good shower pressure (but the bathroom heater is a bit of a joke, only working a few seconds after you push the button).
decor - some aspects are a bit dated but it has been tastefully updated lately - new carpet, curtains, bedding (and wallpaper?). room nice and clean, serviced every day.
motel is about a 15 minute walk to the city centre and pak n save and countdown supermarkets. it is just a couple of doors down from a bp connect and wild bean cafe, which has a convenience store.
we heard that fitzherbert ave can have a problem with boy-racers, but we did not notice this even though we stayed friday and saturday nights. room was nice and quiet (although i heard from a friend who stayed there that the downstairs rooms can be noisy from people moving about in the upstairs rooms)
over all we were very happy with this motel, thought it was good value and will definitely be back when we're next in palmerston north.
