“Everything corporate accommodation should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

City Corporate ticks all the boxes - spacious, beautifully appointed, quiet, immaculately clean, welcoming and excellent value.
My last overnighter in Palmerston North was less than restful, thanks to a persistent snorer on the other side of a very thin wall, so I was anxious to avoid anything similar!
I didn't need to worry - the bed was superb and I slept like a baby.
John and Jan are a cut above your normal hosts; John even cleaned my messy sandals for me after a wee accident in a cow paddock earlier in the day!
I recommend without hesitation.

We ended up choosing this place to stay based on the reviews on here. I am so pleased we chose this venue for our one night stay. Jan and John were the perfect hosts. From the friendly manner of Jan on the phone when I made the booking to the cheery welcome from John when we arrived. The room was clean and comfortable and the double glazing is a winner. The slice we were offered when we arrived added to the welcome. They really do think about the little touches to make your stay comfortable and pleasant.The recommendations by John on where to go for dinner was fab too. We had a gorgeous meal near by and had a wonderful stay. Next time we need to stay in Palmerston North we will certainly stay here again.

Immaculately clean , beautiful linen with crisp white sheets. We stayed on a night when there was a motor event at the showgrounds and the noise was loud outside the unit. As soon as we closed the doors the double glazing did it's stuff and we were in a quiet warm environment.
We had the one bedroomed apartment and were very impressed with the quality furniture and attention to detail. Free wifi and a handy computer table. Huge TV and plenty of power points ( a small thing but greatly appreciated with all our laptops and phones.
We had the breakfast and it was as good as any café, espresso coffee and fresh orange juice, very very impressed with this place.
It is ideal for either a business trip or a couples retreat.

This Place was perfect for our weekend stay. The weather wasn't great outside but our room was warm and cosy with lovely comfortable beds and plush extra blankets were provided if needed too. Everything immaculately clean.
It was very close to town and my son was happy to spot a Gym chain he is a member of and this was within walking distance.
Small minibar available in the room for purchase and it was a bonus to find a complimentary toothbrush provided amongst the usual bathroom goodies -as I had forgotten mine! Even shoe Polish was provided that I guess could be very handy for some!
An extra special touch though was a piece each of beautiful home baked chocolate slice for us on arrival....yum!....can highly recommend this place.

The bed was extremely comfortable, the host was friendly, efficient and helpful and our corporate deluxe I bedroom unit with a queen bed was well equipped with everything we needed.

The unit was modern, clean, very nicely decorated, warm, quiet and comfortable. It catered to our needs in every way and made for an extremely pleasant stay.

I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for accommodation in Palmerston North.

This 'Motel' is more like a boutique Hotel. The attention to detail is impressive. As a business traveller I appreciate the small things such as plenty of power sockets for laptops, phone charging, etc. The complimentary toothbrush and toothpaste is a godsend as invariably occasionally I forget this. Even the plastic cup with nozzle to fill the iron with, yes I know it's a small thing but I get frustrated with accommodation providers for not providing this basic need. Even the easy to use safe with a credit card swipe (free to use) is unique. Free wi-fi is still not easily found in many places in NZ but this place provides it. The rooms are modern, contemporary and very clean. The double glazed windows is a godsend on cold nights. The staff are super friendly and extremely accommodating, even a free beer was provided. Will definitely be back many times.

Room Tip: All rooms are of a superior quality
