“Excellent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

An excellent choice for anyone visiting Palmy. The room finish is better than many more expensive hotels that I have stayed on. Lazyboy chairs in front of the TV, very nicely presented bathroom with spa pool and a superbly comfy bed. Small kitchenette too, should you need it! Very nice.

Stayed June 2014, travelled on business

We booked for 2 nights in a one bedroom shower suite and it was fantastic. Immaculate facilities. We used the gym and it was a pleasant surprise to see that there is a sauna to use if wanted. We would definitely stay again.

We have just enjoyed an excellent two night stay. Is an amazing business - busy with business travellers during the week, car racing on the weekends. Everywhere was exceptionally clean, the armchairs very comfortable, the rooms superbly sound insulated so minimal noise from above and no noise from guest carpark outside our room. Next time will request an upstairs room to have a view, and will try to get up earlier for breakfast.

Room Tip: Request upstairs, but certainly not essential.

By far the best motel we have ever stayed in. We booked a studio shower room with a king bed and it came with $20 breakfast credit for each day too. This was a great deal and we felt it was excellent value for money. The location was perfect for us, within 10 minutes easy (and flat) walking distance from the square. We found both owner/managers very friendly and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean and the bathroom was spotless and sparkling. The shower had good pressure. The king sized bed was firm and comfortable. In the studio room there were 2 lazyboy recliner chairs and a smart tv. My husband appreciated both of these! The first morning we ordered cooked breakfasts and they were delicious. The second morning I had a continental (muesli/fruit/toast/juice/yoghurt) and my husband had eggs benedict. Again, excellent quality. We would definitely return if we were in Palmerston North and will recommend this accommodation to others.

We travelled as a group of five, so had adjoining suites, one with a king bed in the lounge, a second with a single in the lounge and queen in the bedroom. The larger unit had a spa bath. Two comfy recliners in each unit. The first night there, we were concerned that the group of youths playing basketball in the next door car park would keep our six year old up, but the double glazing did its job and she never heard a thing. I can't say the same for our second night when there was a stock car meet across the road, but doubt anything would drown that out, as a friend staying at the other end of the city complained about it too! All in all, a great spot, but I would recommend checking whether there are races on before you book!

Room Tip: Check whether there are stock cars on and ask for a room on the city side if there are.

Thanks Lucy's Mum for taking the time to submit a great review. We are very pleased the double glazing and soundproofing worked well. We actually live on site and I can say, even when Stock Cars are on, the sound resembles a large bumble bee buzzing outside. We keep doors & windows closed also :) Stock car enthusiasts love our location and we try and put non-stock car people on the other side, which also has air-con. Thankfully Stockies don't go late. We look forward to your next visit and will be sure to check the calendar. Kindest Regards Roger & Margy

The studio unit was compact but well equipped with 2 large chairs and high quality furnishings.A comfortable bed and excellent bathroom.The only thing lacking was a dishwasher.A quiet area with no noisy neighbours.Very helpful staff willing to assist with luggage

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor unit as there isn't a lift

Thank you Robert for taking the time to submit a great review. We are pleased you enjoyed our La-z-boy chairs and a great sleep. Many new builds of motor lodges are being designed like ours, with internal access. Ladies traveling for business love it, as they feel more secure. The majority of our guests are business people who generally go out for dinner and we often deliver their breakfast, therefore dishwashers in each room would be a bit over the top we believe. We hope you call us when you next visit Palmerston North and we will accommodate you in a ground floor suite. Kindest Regards Roger & Margy
