“good location”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

unit was very clean,really quite couldn't hear traffic.if your looking for a place to put your head down this is the place for you.the unit we were in had a spa bath two tvs one in the lounge and one in the bedroom,breakfast bench microwave full electric oven and all the other bits and peices to go with it.
it also has a swimming pool and spa,excellent host,I wont hesitate to recommend to anyone who is looking to stay in palmerston north for a night or two, walking distance to pak`n' save 300 mtrs and another 200 mtrs to the plaza close to all the cafes as well.

Room Tip: if our room unit 20 is like all the others i would say any room would do.

Our welcome was warm, friendly, genuine and continued throughout our stay which is a tribute to the operation of the complex as it appeared to be a very busy time, including a wedding party who made our stay more positive and happy than it already was.
(Wishing the happy couple the best of everything possible, especially Ross from Tauranga, the bride's Dad!)
The room was excellent, everything clean and sorted, king size bed was so comfortable and I loved the pillows! The best pillows ever!
Pool and spa located in a good spot, at the rear of all the units and tidy and clean.

Was also really good to see that the motel is pet friendly.
Easy walking to supermarket, mall shopping, best place to stay if you don't have your own transport or don't want to take a taxi!
Hint/recommendation: Do a map/street search of brand stores/liquor outlets etc close to where you are staying-appears some taxi drivers may just be taking advantage if you don't know the geographic's. Shame on them, don't they want business?, obviously not-this was the ONLY negative of the visit to Palmerston North Motel and area.

and great, friendly service. Just stayed for 6 nights and couldn't fault it (well perhaps the shower isn't as powerful as I'd like and a wooden spoon would have been useful but perhaps they are not considered hygienic these days). We voted the beds as very comfortable. Soundproofing between units is very good indeed with solid walls. It's very handy for a large supermarket and the centre of town with all it's eateries. I always find rating a bit difficult. For the money you pay this motel is as good as I've found. You'll get better but you'll pay more - often a lot more. We will be staying there again. I should add that we came on recommendation from other groups that we know who have stayed there.

Room Tip: There isn't much heavy traffic on the road at night so I don't think there's an advantag...

It is in the middle of Palmy, a walking distance to Pak n Save, Mall and the City Square.
This hotel provides a spacious clean room and nice and clean shower and toilet. A comfy bed and quiet nights and a sofa. Free tea and coffee, microwave, fridge and hot water kettle also. A Flat TV with a lot of channel choices, and parking space in front of the room.
And the Manager was really helpful with the local Information.
One of the best feature of this hotel is its WALL made from brick which means more soundproof from any neighboring noises.
Moreover, the hotel offers a Sauna, but I haven't had chance to try it.

So, it is worth for the Room Rate ($99 per night for two people). It is on my list when visiting Palmy next time.

Room Tip: The room away from the front road should be quieter.

Have now stayed at the Palmerston North Motel twice each time we have had wonderful service.
We book a one bedroom unit with a king bed & a single bed in the living area. Very good shower. A very nice spa pool to relax in. A very quiet motel with friendly owners & staff.

We had a week in Palmerston North and seriously we could not fault this motel, it was spotlessly clean, very quiet, the bed was awesome and the location was fantastic.
The customer service was outstanding, so if you need a room for a night or a week do not go past this motel, if you can find better.......well good luck !!!!!!

Cheers for an exceptional stay guys !

Room Tip: Number 13 was lucky for us !
