“A great place to stay In Palmerston North”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

A 24 hour gym, a full kitchen, a modern bathroom, great internet connection (for Free) close to the city, the supermarket and in a quiet street. This is a great place to stay!! Very clean, Ian the owner is very helpful (and fun) and the warm welcome and being shown to your room with a welcome gift in basket-A chocolate, a juice, fresh milk and a packet of chippies-very WOW!!
The rooms at the back are even more quiet!!

Room Tip: At the back-private and quiet and great parking outside your room.

this place is great, modern clean and well located near but not right in the town centre. Host turned on heaters in all rooms. Has a spa in each unit and the kids loved it. Reception on tv a bit weak.

I stayed at many hotels around Palmie but this is excellent ask for a good deal and you likely to get it very quiet at nights no traffic close to centre just 200 meter away where there is plenty of choice for dining no need to take your car the units are clean crisp modern the beds are excellent I tell you I am not Easley satisfied thats for sure

It was just a standard business trip - but with a spa pool in my room! The room was spacious, with a generous hanging/luggage space, a king-size bed, two armchairs, a desk and hard chair, tv and sound/DVD system, kitchenette, toilet/wetroom with large shower area, with a heated floor (nice!). And off the wetroom? A 4-seater spa pool. If it had a screen with connection for an Android phone so I could read my book on screen while sploshing around, I'd have been in hog heaven! (My colleague had a lesser room with a spa bath instead of a pool, and a less fabulous bed but still good).
And it's not all about the hardware - I was greeted with a smile and the offer of milk and orange juice, which were taken to my room while I drove the car over. Breakfast arrived on a tray right on time, with a smile.
I don't know if Palmy can sustain a motel like this for long - get in quick while it's still in business!

Room Tip: It's away from noisy parts of town. If you want to bathe in splendour, ask for a room with a sp...

How much importance do you place on front office? Do you like a warm smiley greeting on arrival? I do. What is a fair rate for a corporate traveller? Like, a traveller who will return month after month. Well, this place is too expensive at $135/night for a corporate traveller for a studio room. Coupled with a greeting and a look as though I had just got out of prison, I was not impressed. It is not hard to pick someone who is likely to return time and time again. Especially if the car is covered in sign writing!! Well, Mr Bentley...take note. Smarten up the reception and offer a better corporate rate and your occupancy might hit 99%. I like a previous review where a suggestion of a biscuit or two is a nice touch. I would also like to see towels that are not fraying at the edge and a shower that doesn't spray all over the floor. Minor issues, but with such fierce competition in the motel market, these little things do matter. The motel is within easy walking distance of good restaurants and is reasonably quiet so land as the other guest are quiet as it the units are very public. Free internet access is a must these days.

Hi Kiwiglobetrotter

Thank you for taking the time to review Bentleys.
I am pleased to write that the unpleasant encounter you had with the gentleman (previous owner) will not be greeting any of our guests any longer!
We have in place two lovely and friendly Managers, Tony & Lynda, who cannot do enough for Bentleys Guests. Since we have taken ownership we have also reduced our tariffs, as we agree the previous prices were a little steep. Under the new ownership we have biscuits in all suites, free internet for all guests, and most certainly no frayed towels!
Once again thank you for your feedback we hope you will come back and enjoy the new and improved Bentleys.

Warm Regards
Jimmy
