Fabulous spacious room, everything you could possibly want. Kitchen, linen changed and rubbish removed everyday. Beds are sanitised, mattress and pillow protectors great. Exceptionally clean. Hosts are amazing. Breakfast, I know is scrumptious. Five minute walk to the centre of town. Parking on site. Very quiet with double glazed windows. 50+ channels on Sky TV. A thoroughly enjoyable break. I... More

I lived in Palmerston North for a number of years and used to make fun of this motel, with it's name that I wasn't sure how to pronounce and it's 80's like exterior, but I found a good deal online and it had good reviews, so I booked a room. Seriously impressed. We booked a one bedroom unit, with 3... More

So impressed with such a clean studio unit. Loved the spa bath & the friendly welcome on arrival. Absolutely perfect stay - just as you would expect, though sometimes you get exactly what you pay for - not in this case, as this was inexpensive & value was exceptional. Thank You Team Shadzz

We stayed here two nights. One night in the two bedroom suite and one night in a studio. Both apartments have everything you need. Plenty of parking available and even some for our visitors. Just a walk to the city CBD, shopping and other amenities. Friendly and helpful management and staff. Definitely recommended
