We celebrated our anniversary and they went out of their way to do an amazing platter full of all sorts of yummy goodies. There was also a lovely fruit platter near the spa bath. The room was very clean, tidy and modern. Very friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay special. I would highly recommend staying there and we will definately

Stayed at the Hacienda Motor Lodge in May on a business trip and would have to say it was the best I have stayed in for years. I do a lot of travelling around the north island and have no hesitation telling people this is where you "must stay".
I have now instructed my sales rep who covers the lower North Island to book here.
Hosts are focused on good old fashion service which is a nice change from some that sit and give you your key and point to the room you have booked.
You will not be disappointed with your stay here.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

We stayed at Hacienda Motor Lodge, in May 2014. We booked three rooms, one for three elderly relatives, one for a family of relatives - children, parents and a grandparent, and a room for ourselves – a couple. All of the rooms were incredibly spacious, clean and functional. The décor was nice in each room and furnishings felt new and of good quality. In our room the bed was huge and very comfortable as were the pillows. The heater in the room was perfect, on low it heated the entire space and kept it at a nice even temperature. Our room was a great haven to arrive to after travelling and return to after our activities in Palmerston North as we had some very cold winter weather on the weekend we were staying. The spa bath in our unit was perfect to unwind and warm up in. The owners Suzanne and Elwyn really went the extra mile for our family, putting a high chair, porta-cot and toy box in the family unit we had booked. This catered for the children really well, making travelling with kids that bit more comfortable and easy. There was ample parking and it was easy to find and very close to everything. Walking distance to the centre of Palmerston North and also Terrace End shops. I will add photos to this review but they do not do the size of the room or bed justice from our unit.

My son & I were delighted to have found such a great place to stay in Palmerston North while my daughter had surgery at Crest hospital, which is just around the corner. Our accessible unit was prefect as I was on crutches recovering from surgery myself. Lovely clean spacious unit, wet floor shower and even a seat to sit on when you are showering. Elwyn and Suzy are so friendly and helpful, just the people you need at a motel & the chocolate brownie was yum!!! A real plus to have really comfortable beds, just like home.

Have stayed here multiple times and never had any major problems. They appear to have recently introduced a bond and for regulars that doesn't feel quite right, but otherwise the owners are nice. One minor quibble it that there are no net curtains so you are either visible to everyone or in the dark. Hacienda won't go down in my list of favourites but there isn't really anything wrong either.

Elwyn and Susie were the loveliest people you could ask for in a motel. The rooms very very nice and clean, spacious. Loved the spa bath. Susy makes an awesome fudge brownie that was to die for which is ready when you arrive. So close to town yet peaceful and not on a busy road. They are more than helpful with information about where to go and see. Very friendly, will recommend to everyone and anyone. Thanks for all the info you shared in your motel course. Hope to see and chat with you in the near future and all the best for the future as well.

Brilliant motel, stayed for several nights and could not have been happier. The owners were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The unit was spacious and immaculate. The wifi was very useful and the unit had everything you could need. The motel is in a quiet road and so great for a peaceful nights sleep. It is just a few minutes walk from the centre of town and there are plenty of places to eat just down the road. I can highly recommend the Hacienda to anyone looking for a motel in PN.
