My family and I recently emigrated from Scotland and spent 3 weeks at the Shadzz whilst waiting to get access to our rental property. We stayed from the 18th Dec through to the 11th Jan and I will be totally frank and say it was an excellent introduction to Palmerston North. Rozelle and Peter (and their 2 lovely children) were the perfect hosts. They let us value our family time together and were very thoughtful about times of the day for cleaning services etc.

The unit itself was well stocked for a family. We had a fair amount of space, a table and chairs for 6 and two 3-seater settees. SKY television, a broadband router for hire ($10 a day - very reasonable) and two double bedrooms. There was a washing machine and dryer ($3 per wash and $3 per dry) plus a drying line outside which I made plenty use of. The kitchen had most things required for a family of four although I missed an oven - however most people do not stay in motels normally quite as long as we did! There was ample car parking also even when it was busy.

Overall, staying at the Shadzz was a very enjoyable experience and I would recommend staying there to anybody.

My daughter and I stayed here over a weekend while she was playing in a sports tournament. Our initial welcome was warm and helpful with the offer to take our luggage upstairs. The amenities were pointed out, ensuring we were well settled. Our one bed unit was spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished. The recliner chairs were a hit! The entire place was spotless. Don't think I've ever stayed in such a well cleaned place before! Congratulations. Will definitely return.

I would like to thank Peter and Roselle for a wonderful stay over a period of a few weeks. We stayed at Shadzz several times over a period of a few weeks while we were caring for a sick relative. The compassion shown and little extra attentions given were much appreciated. Our 1 year old son was looked after well and our extended family were catered for at short notice. A lovely motel. Thank you!

Lots of little things make this a great place to stay. Handy, big rooms, matching utensils and plates, glasses. Great shower!! Next time I will take up the offer of the round of golf, if this doesn't do it for you there is the complementay Gym/Pool pass.

Breakfast bang on time and substaintial.!!

Room Tip: Had street front room with a view but no noise.
