Recent guest reviews

Rooms are very tidy. Up to date and warm. Very happy with my stay here. Can't hear the traffic and is close to everything. Could hear any noise from the rooms next door. Big showers, big beds and a nice set up.

Very nice room with a comfortable bed spotlessly clean and the people at reception were very helpful and friendly would stay here again would recommend to all my friends and family Very Close to town and Restaurants

I usually stay with family while in Palmerston North however on this occasion we had a need to book a motel. This was the first place we tried and what a wonderful surprise. The gentleman on the front desk was very friendly, efficient, and helpful. The price was great and the room excellent. Very clean and large. On this occasion we had family come to us for a quick visit and the room was able to accommodate our needs. A cooked breakfast was ordered for the next morning and it was brought promptly at the time indicated. Would stay again.

Stayed in a one bedroom-roomy-clean-ideal for couples-walk in shower-everything you need-plenty of TV channels-handy to town and food outlets-had a few wines and walked to town-great Host -very helpful.

Stayed for 3 nights and was super pleased with my room and the friendly service. Immaculately clean room with everything you need including plunger coffee. Comfortable bed was an added bonus. Was a wee home away from home. Breakfast was lovely also and delivered in time with a smile. Great location that was handy to shops and supermarkets etc. would absolutely stay again!

We stayed here for a month when we moved to town for work and looked for a house to buy. The staff were excellent and the property is very clean and comfortable. While we were here we had some family stay in the same motel (smaller room) and they were also comfortable. Would recommend this motel for long and short term stays.

We had a delightful two room unit everything was clean and tidy the bathroom was fantastic proper walk-in wet room it had a usable kitchen and small table and only minutes from the town centre at the most

Very tidy, great helpful and friendly staff, and location was perfect. Nice and quiet even though right on a main road. Good heating, electric blanket for cold nights, and bathroom/shower facilities excellent. Will stay again.

We didn't pre-book, as there was no information about this motel here. In fact there were only two proposal in the whole town.. so we decided to drive and see ourselves what is available. It's appeared that there are lots of motels on both side of the road moving towards central part. We've stoped and checked 4 and decided to stay here. Great and friendly reception, we've got nice 2 bedrooms and living room. Cost was about 200 NZ dollars.

This is 2nd review I have done here, but been a while since I stayed here last. Again this Motel was immaculate and clean, Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Very quiet, The room was cleaned daily,and towels changed. Would recommend this Motel. ONLY 200 metres to the main Square, Supermarkets, and restautants and a Mall.
