We have stayed here several times, the rooms are clean and modern, the hosts are wonderful, cafe food great and very convenient for our regular trips to the hospital. We will be returning next week, I think our 6th stay here. Return customers are their best advertisement.

Was shocked to see some of the older photos of this place on TripAdvisor so I had to write a review and take some updated photos. This place has obviously had a major refresh and update as the rooms look nothing like the old dingy photos on TripAdvisor :). Very pleasant surprise. Hosts were also extremely friendly unlike some of... More

We had an extended stay at the Carramar after our home was flooded. The Executive Double unit had everything needed to ensure that we were very warm and comfortable. The unit was back from Ruahine Street which made it a quiet one. The staff were always welcoming and friendly. The on-site Zest Café meant that delicious meals were available too.... More

This motor inn is across the road from Palmerston North Hospital, so it is really well placed if you need to go to the hospital. When I walked into the unit I was seriously impressed with the up to date decor, the cleanliness and the room set up. The bathroom was excellent, a good size with an excellent shower. Cafe... More

Conveniently located across the road from Palmerston North Hospital. Clean and well-appointed rooms that have been recently renovated. The heater and electric blanket warded the winter chill away, and the lovely shower pressure and bathtub were well appreciated. Quality basic bathroom amenities were provided. My room was situated at the back and super quiet. The onsite cafe/restaurant served up a... More

I stayed here for two nights while in Palmerston North on business. Check in was easy and the lady actually walked to the room with me and showed me how to work the heating and the TV which was great as no two are the same! The room and bathroom was spotless, the decor was very nice and despite being... More

My husband needed to go to Palmerston North to attend a course for work. I went along for the drive! The motel was very very clean and well presented. Well located if you needed the hospital close by and it was an easy walk into the CBD (approx 40mins). Excellent shower, large bathroom, well appointed studio unit with all we... More

Great place, nicely decorated, clean, quiet, very comfortable, friendly staff. Highly recommended. Great restaurant. They were very helpful providing great tasting vegetarian options for me.
