Family unit. 3 adults, 1 child and a baby. Accommodation was cramped with the double bed downstairs, had to constantly shuffle around mum dad and the bub. We were there for two nights so it was ok. Amenities are gr8 and we did enjoy our stay :)

Well, the Turangi I-Site did their magic and we were booked into Palm City Motor Inn where all my 'Must Haves' and More were found! The public spa, the pool, trampoline was great...

We arrived early in the day, staff was waiting for us. Nice place with good New Zealand style motor lodge type room. Easy 20 minute walk to the city center but outside the relative congestion of the city center.

We advise people that we are about 15 minutes walk to the edge of town. We find that being on the edge of town tends to be quieter for the guest. Thanks for your review.

Friendly staff, great, clean and modern facilities. Always willing to help and additional costs (eg. laundry) are minimal. Good private rooms and a very clean outdoor pool. We would definitely stay again!

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palm City. It had everything we needed, fridge, stove top, frying pan and loved the room spa as well as the guest spa. Room was cleaned everyday and service was fab. Washing machine was free and weather was a perla. Thank you Palm City - definitely will be back again.

Great people to meet and greet as you arrive, then enquire later to confirm and ensure that all is well. Very clean, very handy to town and easy to find. Very easy to recommend and we will return there in the future.
