Can't ask for much more - cheap price, good quality, polite and helpful staff, decent sleep! Only downside was the receptionist on the morning of checkout didn't note the late check out that had been organised, although was very apologetic when the time came.

I stayed the night and also used the conference room facilities. Very courteous, helpful and friendly. Quiet night in the restaurant but the food and the service was faultless. Just a nice overall feeling to the place.

Great location and very helpful reception staff. I would recommend this accommodation to all. I stayed two nights on this trip but have stayed here many times before and have found it consistently of a good standard!

Dear ronikim
Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Travelodge Palmerston North. We appreciate the time you have taken to share your experience with us. In regards to our breakfast we always have fresh fruit on our selection and I have asked the team to investigate reason for no fresh fruit on our selection during your stay.

Kind regards

A comfortable basic hotel, always clean ant comfortable.
Lighting in the blue bathroom is terrible to apply makeup.
Evening meal usually really good value for $$ . Seafood chowder is a winner .
Breakfast has a very small selection...no fresh fruit to speak of and can't get a tomato juice, even in the bar ?

Was there for a conference. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Happy to recommend travel lodge palmerston north. I would have preferred some better sky channels on the tv though. Lots of local cafes and shops.

We had 4 nights at the Travelodge in Palmerston North. Good things: comfortable king size bed; quality linen; very clean; nice lobby; good bar and restaurant; room service with reasonable prices; good service; character building; very central to the square and good cafes etc. Not so good things: no electric blankets! (temperatures in Palmerston North can be positively arctic!) although there was a noisy heat pump; watch out for the showers! the room we had only had a shower curtain with the shower head pointing towards the door - my husband turned the shower on full and the pressure was great but flooded the bathroom; only 2 towels in the room (although happy to provide more); there was only one main light in the room that was not working and despite being notified three times it was not fixed (however, the bedside lamps did work and were adequate)
Overall, I would stay again as we received a good rate. Taxi to the airport $15 - $20
