An amazing motel in a great location a short walk to town and no busy traffic noise to keep me awake at night. 5 stars for hospitality and rooms are very tidy and spacious. Would definatly reccommend the Hacienda.

We stayed two nights and had a wonderful time. We found the owners, Suzy and Elwyn to be very friendly and helpful. Nothing was any trouble to them and they certainly went beyond our expectations.
The unit was very clean and modern and the bed was very comfortable. It was well equipped and had everything in it we needed.
The location is great, close to restaurants and about a 5 minute walk to the city centre.
I would recommend this motel accommodation and we certainly will be coming back.

I had my elderly aunt and mother staying at this motel as my aunt had procedures at the Crest Hospital - could not recommend this motel enough - excellent service - drove them to all appointments and collected them when procedure was over - this was over 3 days and they even checked on them to make sure everything was ok - not only did they check on them they even phoned me on my cell to let me know how they were doing - great job beyond the call of duty
Thanks for everything Suzy and Elwyn can't recommend you enough - have never had such brilliant service before - thanks again

Hi everyone! What can I say except WOW! We've been to a lot of hotels in the last couple of years, and can honestly say The Hacienda in Palmerston North is the best, cleanest and most pleasant motel we've stayed at in New Zealand (perhaps even anywhere we've been in our world travels). Thanks Suzanne and Elwyn! You are the most pleasant and accommodating hosts we have met! We are so very happy that we chose your motel from the many in Palmerston North at which we could have stayed. We have stayed at several motels around town in the past which left us very unimpressed with their services. We are very pleased and happy to recommend Suzanne and Elwyn, the Hacienda Motel and the personable staff to anyone looking for accommodation in Palmerston North, New Zealand.
I read one review for the motel that was quite dismissive of the motel, but disagree with almost all of the comments. The one thing that was true was the black Venetian blinds that are indeed hanging in the office. Very Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen chic, very well coordinated. Nice job guys.
Thanks so much, Steve, Cheryl and Dee Nolan

Stayed a night in August with the Hacienda in PNth. They couldnt have been more helpful. Just a wonderful stay and lovely accommodation - stylish and comfortable with everything you would ever need. Able to walk to Dinner in town and shopping.... Would absolutely recommend this accommodation.

Room Tip: We had three of the rooms and they were all great.

My husband was in hospital for an extended period. It was a very stressful time being away from home and not knowing the city. I have never been so looked after before in a motel. Suzy and her husband went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. The unit was great and each night after returning from hospital, my light and heater had been turned on. They were genuinly concerned, even to a follow up call after we had returned home. The Hacienda is in an excellent location - walking distance to the city centre 3 minutes drive from the Palmerston North Hospital. They have excellent accomodation for teams as well and I will definately be recommending them to my bowling friends.

We stayed with a group at the Hacienda. Owners catered to our needs supplying extra chairs and glasses for our visitors. First rate service, comfortable beds. Well decorated units. Will definitely recommend. Close to city centre.
